We’re all small in some way, and we all need to be spoken for sometimes. So I’ve written a new children’s book that is really all for you!
This book supports human beings, and other people, in finding a healthy, compassionate, loving, and fun way to deal with anger and sadness and fear, through storytelling and drama and, believe it or not, composting, too! It’s got some of my favorite photographs in it, of some of the beautiful people, places, and things I’ve discovered in the world, as well as some very interesting people, places, and things that I’ve entirely invented. I truly hope that this book both delights and inspires many individuals all over the planet, and helps many people find ways to heal some of the pain that they’ve been going through. The world can really use some healing these days, can’t it?
A free, high quality printable PDF (28 mb!) of the book is available for download.
An $8 professionally printed paperback book is also available for purchase at Amazon.
The same professionally printed paperback book is also available from me, in person, with a sliding scale donation option for those who want to pay more or less than the retail prive of $8. (Email me at TheWiseTurtle on gmail if you want to try to organize picking up copies from me directly.)
My goal is to help every parent, teacher, counselor, and kid who wants to support kids in finding ways to use their negative emotions for positive effect, through storytelling. And my hope is that everyone else might find some benefit to the book as well, either by reading it and creating their own stories that transform their negative emotions into positive ideas, or by simply living in a world where more people are inspired to do this.
Growth always comes when we’re aiming for something more good, true, beautiful, and/or inspiring. When we have a loving place to move into, we can expand and become our whole, best selves.
Trying to push yourself into a space that isn’t made for you, specifically, will only end up with pain, for everyone. Thus, we know the best path to take in life is the one that naturally pulls us forward into a space that fits our unique self comfortably and lovingly.
So follow your heart, and you’ll always end up where the universe most needs you to be, creating the most joy for everyone.
I wish you well in connecting with your heart and allowing it to be pulled to where it’s most welcome and wanted and valued.
Every unique individual in the universe is fulfilling a unique path through the geometry of reality, coloring in just one yarn-like string of puzzle piece of the pattern that is all of creation.
Sometimes the squiggles, wobbles, knots and other strange detours we take in life are seemingly unexplainable on a surface level, but we can know, deep down, that every mental and physical exploration we go on, even if it seems totally far away from our overall journey in life, is necessary, for the universe to be fully complete, in all it’s infinite expansion of creativity, beauty, and awe.
I respect your detours, and look forward to seeing your whole journey, and enjoy all the times your path and mine join.
