5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Metaphysical Message, April 6, 2010
This review is from: You with the Stars in Your Eyes: A Little Girl’s Glimpse at Cosmic Consciousness (Hardcover)
"Tara sang as she walked with her grandfather on a wide flat beach under a canopy of stars. She was five and a half years old, an age when the world is very much alive. The moon was peeking curiously over the horizon; the waves crept in to tickle Tara's toes and listen." - From You with the Stars in Your Eyes

In his first book for children, author Deepak Chopra weaves a metaphysical tale of cosmic consciousness and the expansiveness of our Being. Brightly illustrated by former Disney animator Dave Zaboski, You with the Stars in Your Eyes follows an interesting conversation between a Grandfather and his Granddaughter as they stroll along a beach.

When Tara asks Grandfather how much he loves her and he replies "More than all the stars in the sky", the wide-eyed child asks "Why?" Caught off-guard, Grandfather muses all sorts of complex grown-up thoughts--not quite sure how to answer her penetrating question.

The beautiful Moon, bedecked in her finery, rises and walks with them on the beach. She answers Tara "Because you came from the stars..."

The Moon loved to talk of love, so she begins to share secrets about where Tara (and all of us) came from and how the Illuminated Ones "...streams down and makes the wind blow, the grasses grow, and the dew drops glow. Our light gets into all things."

When Tara asks the Moon "Who made our eyes?" she answers, exclaiming "Ah! That's the most important thing!"

The Moon's explanation to Tara and her Grandfather hints at the profound spiritual concept that we are, in essence, mirrors for the "stars" so they can see themselves.

My son was fascinated with this story, especially when he saw the fiery, smiling masculine Sun, the lovely feminine Moon and the bright harlequin stars--all "seeing" themselves through our eyes. He was delighted when he noticed that the Grandfather looked a lot like the author, Deepak Chopra!

Discover the magic for yourself by reading You with the Stars in Your Eyes; although created for children, everyone can benefit from the reminder that we're all "star stuff"--inextricably connected to the Universe, permeated with brilliant, boundless eternal Light.
