Coalescing the Vapors

In 2004 I was honored to witness this miraculous appearance of collective consciousness. I was hired to teach an after school theater program at Lakeside Elementary, located in Lake Village, which is located in the rural delta of Southern Arkansas. With sixteen very intuitive children, we embarked on an amazing journey through an improvisation into a company of “think alikes.” It was as if they all knew the same story. The lines flowed, the kinetic dialog emerged effortlessly, and the entire young cast knew just what to do. The only direction I gave them was to say that the story was about a magical wish-giving sunflower that was dying because everybody in the town was too busy to make time to care for her.
Before my eyes, they began to act out the most eloquent examples of *The Seven Spiritual Laws by Deepak Chopra: The Law of Pure Potentiality, The Law Of Giving, The Law of Cause and Effect, The Law Of Least Effort, The Law Of Intention and Desire, The Law Of Detachment, The Law of Purpose in Life. These spiritual perspectives were already written into them by Grace and what I have come to refer to as, inherent generational self-realizations. It is a shared state of awareness that transmits into their generation’s personal place in the world and rises to a collective understanding of one’s place as a whole, in the history of mankind at this time. Each generation reflects the time that are born into and they carry with them the particular answers to make an evolutionary difference.
I was introduced to this insight through the first story called, Make and Believe. I dreamt this story many years ago, and I also believe that it was a way for me to understand that the universe wanted me to go out into the classrooms and gather these stories that are so readily written in children. I traveled as a bird might over head, following Emma and Brody as they were called to adventures outside of their home land to distant worlds troubled by the Angerdahs and Yicca the Awful One. They went out to bring the knowledge of Make and Believe to them so that they too might co-create and make the world a better place to live in.
In the course of writing down their incredibly perceptive story, I experienced a profound calling for more children’s literature to be written with and by children that allows them at a very young age to illustrate through a pure, conscious hand how to shape thought, deed and moral structures in the world. Tale of the Sunflower in Make and Believe is the first story born out of these children's imagination.
Developing a child’s mind to choose to invite happiness into their consciousness is the first step to a good life; a life that one authentically welcomes and thereby attracts positivism into their lives.
