We are each the author
and main character of our
on-going novel in progress.
Moment-by-moment we live
our themes, embellish the plot,
weave in and out of scenarios
as our character and unique stories
imprint upon the pages
of each chapter.
* * *  
Distinct, repetitive, provocative
 positive and negative patterns emerge, 
Surfacing from the deep, invisible
world of our mind and emotions.
* * *
Memories and Feelings
dictate our actions, orchestrate reactions,
depict our character and relationships.  
Moreover, these define the themes of
Of our unfolding story.

From our invisible inner world,
Our character emerges to be seen.
And this can be the turning point of our story.
  ~ The
Awareness ~  
That moment of 'Ah Ha' can
 Re-invent character, Re-create themes,
Re-write the final chapters of our novel,
Poetically flowing into worlds
Destined by our very own dreams.
Awareness is the first step.
Stepping away from our ego is the second.
For clearer insight to change,
without pain or explanation.
And then - the best lessons are told by  
Author, Antoine de Saint-Exupery
in his story of 'The Little Prince'

The NATURE of The Little Prince

The Little Prince
Awakens each morning on his small planet.
He fervently cleans out his volcanoes,
So they wouldn't erupt.
He cuts back his baobabs,
So they wouldn't take over his world.
He passionately cares
for his little red rose,
Symbolizing his love for beauty.
* * *
these symbolic actions 
Can change our lives
Enhance our character
Alter our reoccurring plots
And Re-title our on-going novel.


 The Little Prince, written in 1942, 
is seemingly a children's book.
Yet it poetically, metaphorically
and symbolically
 speaks of human nature,
relationships, emotions,
and responsibilities. 
* * *   
After being marooned in the desert,
just as St.Exupery experienced in 1935, 
the Little Prince meets both humans and animals.
The essence of this story is spoken by the fox
who tells the Little Prince:
"On ne voit bien qu'avec le cœur.
L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux
"You can see clearly only with your heart.
What is truly important is invisible to the eyes."
And he explains that,
"You become responsible, forever,
for what you have tamed." 
And the fox reminds him that,
"It is the time you have spent with your rose
that makes your rose so important."
