About this title

Synopsis:

"Once upon a time...I was."

Told in the personal "voice" of God, here is a story about creation and relationship that is about each one of us, and sure to delight children of all faiths, all backgrounds.

In simple words and with radiant illustrations, God tells an intimate story of creation, about playing, about friendship and love, about our world-and about becoming ourselves. And with each turn of the page, we're reminded that we just might be closer to God than we think!

Based on timeless spiritual insights, Becoming Me tells a very big story and a very personal story. This charming tale will fuel the wonder of children as it shows all of us how we are connected to everything and everyone.

From the Author:

One day, in meditation, I experienced a presence so vast and embracing that there was no longer any up or down, in or out, this or that. There was just One Mind, everywhere and always, taking different shapes, moment by moment.

God was everywhere, singing to me and through me. God’s deepest desire, I realized, is to play ... to explore everything that is possible ... and from this desire, the world is born. For only here, in form, can God experience the joys and heartbreak of being alive, of being you and being me. For God, who is so big, the greatest challenge is ... being little.

Then I heard a voice, wise but full of wonder: ‘Once a upon a time, I was'. Immediately I wondered if all the big spiritual ideas about our world could be expressed in a ‘little’ story.

Becoming Me is the result ... a story of creation as told by the Creator, the story of a God who loves to play. In writing it, I checked my thoughts with lots of different religions, but mostly I just listened for that big little voice in me, and followed, and discovered that the biggest ideas make the most sense when expressed simply, from the heart.

I hope that Becoming Me speaks to you, your child, and the child in you ... that it reminds you our world is a divine play, and the ultimate nature of life is love.
