The children of light
(extracted from my book SHINE, available as a FREE download from firstname.lastname@example.org)
The children of light love to play games in paradise. Their favorite game is pearl fishing when they are at the beach. They love to swim out and search the clear waters for pearls, and when they see one, they swim down, becoming smaller and smaller and very bright. Eventually they arrive at the pearl oyster shell and are able to squeeze inside and disappear into the pearl. When this happens, a baby is conceived here on earth. The child of light is inside the baby and follows and guides its development with great concentration. When conditions are right, the baby is born and the real adventure begins. As the earth baby grows, the light child guides its development until the earth child begins to be aware of herself, at which time the light child becomes silent and begins to watch the show, the show called life. All sorts of things happen in this show, good and bad, but for the light child it is all make believe and a lot of fun. Eventually the life ends, the human dies and the light child emerges from the oyster and begins to swim back up to the shore to join her friends. The whole adventure lasts about five minutes, and is repeated many times during a day.
