"The Ascension of the Flying Purple Caterpillar and Other Spiritual Parables" is yet another inspirational book by Lara De Ann, author of "Piece of Planet or Planet of Peace: A Journey Through Letting Go Told in Prose and Poetry." The value of parables can never be underestimated; they are an excellent vehicle to convey spiritual truths. According to Lara, "all of the parables in this book are channeled through my writing from a higher source." In the title story, Tony is a caterpillar who is not only purple in color, but also possesses a pair of wings. She can "fly to the treetops and see things beyond a caterpillar's dreams," but, alas, she is deeply distressed because she is so different from her other friends. She cuts off her wings and seeks the help of Evergreen tree to change her color to green. Now that she looks just like the other caterpillars, she feels confident to make friends. However, Tony soon grows sick. Upon visiting Grandma Who, the wise owl, she is advised, "Be who you are! Then you will fly again." Finally, Tony learns some valuable life lessons - the need to grow before she can really fly, and to be who she really is. In "A White Buffalo Made Me Do It," Robin, a butterfly, refuses to fly because she is under the delusion that her wings are not real; she considers them a figment of everyone else's imagination. By helping her "let go of her own illusions," Mrs. White Buffalo helps Tony to use her wings to fly and discover her true potential. Another inspiring story, "Jake the Mat Weaver," is about a blind and deaf man who weaves beautiful mats. This parable invites readers to reflect on life - We weave our experiences into life. This collection is a total of twelve captivating, thought-provoking stories that impart valuable lessons on patience, power of intent, joys of service, exploring one's creativity, cultivating self-love, being true to one's nature, positive thinking, overcoming fears, being in the moment, and trust. from Bookwire Review
