This is a parable inspired from the book "Illusions: Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah". It's an absolutely brilliant book, and I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a good read. It's rather short, and incredibly profound. It's Less Words, and More Meaning.

This Parable is an interpretation of the idea that we are all great, and in this dense conscious world that we live in - we often get stuck "in the rocks" and don't even entertain the thought of a higher frequency of understanding. If we only let go, we can become free of all earthly suffering and transcend to a space where anything is possible.

That was beautiful. And I am really surprised that there are people who didn't think so, but the world is diverse in both body and mind. Something about that, I just really, really liked this.

You know, I always found that most sects of Christanity view Jesus or God as a sorta 'Santa Clause' figure. Praying, barganing, etc.

The real change and revelation should come from within. And wisdom can only be acquired though experience and a willingness to be open-minded.

Love never blossoms without being a little bit brave.

Good concept. Perhaps that's how creatures evolved. To the ones that grew from mere cells in the ocean, dared to crawl on land, or even attempted to leap from high-places and evolved wings.

Great animation. I read the book a while ago and it was pretty good. My philosophy professor loved the book too.

Deas, you'll like the book even if you aren't christian or particularly religious. I think the author of the book is Buddhist if I remember correctly.

Try Nietzsche, he doesnt rot your brain like religion of any form does. Good and evil are mere descriptive words that hold no weight to anyone who can see through the lies of their usage.

While the theme was mundane at best, the animation was decent. Maybe you should try letting go of religion and be as free as your little critter. Even embrace nihilism, you would be suprised how truely free you are.
