When Humpty Dumpty had a great fall, why were all the king’s men and horses unable to put Humpty Dumpty back together again? The most basic answer to the riddle is that Humpty Dumpty is an egg. His clumsy round proportion is what caused him to fall in the first place.
Anytime you begin a new venture, you are a bit like Humpty Dumpty. You are an egg and the yolk is your dream. An egg is one of the most sacred symbols in the Universe. The egg represents generation, birth and rebirth. An egg also represents fertility and the possibility of new growth. In the beginning stages, you are like an egg, you are fragile. Small and clumsy, your proportions are lopsided. If you try to leave any foundation too early, you will fall. Your shell will crack and your dreams will spill on the ground.
However, eggs also have tremendous potential. If you wait patiently and nurture the yolk with tender love, your precious dreams will grow into a chick that breaks through the shell and hatches when the timing is perfect. Once ready, the chick begins to fly.
