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.

Nice. I got to listen to Richard Bach speak a few years ago at my favorite bookstore, and got him to autograph my copy of Illusions.

I was thinking this was going to about some specific religion, particularly Christainity. It came across as just more of a broad description of parables in general. It seems like this wasn't so much religious, as it was spiritual. That's the kind of thing that we can all agree on. It also helps that the animation is really good. You have made so many of these spiritual submissions. You seem to really be doing us a service.

Your voice is great, particularly with how soft you sound. I especially like when the one guy says he's no more of a messiah than anyone else. It kind of makes you feel humble about yourself. I guess they were supposed to be sea monkeys or something. All in all, a very nice cartoon.

Wow,that book would surely be an interesting one to read,judging from this simple,yet meaningful flash.This example indirectly enlightens people that there is always is more to life than going with the flow or going on the same path as everyone else.Taking a different path would have risks but remember that 'In man,it may be impossible but in God,everything is possible' or something like that.Anyway,good work on this.
