“For every question there could be the answer inside of me. All I ever had to do was ask the part of me that knew.” –from the book
The inspiration for All I See is a Part of Me came to author Chara Curtis while sitting on a log one sunny day. Noticing the support of the log—as well as the river and forest—she envisioned billions of dancing lights of life. She realized that everything she was seeing was of the same essence—and that she was part of a sea of love and light.
Artist Cynthia Aldrich conveys the author’s message with chalky, playful images awash with color. From Sister Star to her teddy bear, the child in the book begins to realize that she is a part of all she sees—and all she sees is a part of her, as well.
All I See is a Part of Me captures the reverie that comes from present-moment awareness, as well as the child-like acceptance that All That Is shares the same source and essence. By finding and feeling the light within, the child then finds the same light in others.
Although geared towards children, this lovely book reminds us that all is attainable from within—and that everything we encounter reflects a part of Who We Are. I highly recommend this book for all ages, especially as a reminder of our oneness with the Universe.
