...he even repented of beeing a buddha...

Of course!

I can’t imagine a single thing in the physical that cannot be used as a metaphor for the metaphysical.
Here is what I think might be a reasonable metaphor of the bee from a male perspective

If she is willing
to break the rule
and feed me the stuff
meant for the royal jewel
I would be a fool
not to follow her reign
gliding ever sideways
from train to train

And you can always find a way for it to be true.
Everything being said to you is true; Imagine of what it is true.
