Once upon a time there was a sacred race of beings called angels. One day, in their travels through the Universe, the angels stumbled upon a very special planet called earth. Knowing this planet was a very special place, they became intrigued; wondering if this may be the right place to take the next step in their evolutionary progress. For millennia the angels had felt the push, knowing they were outgrowing their present stage of evolution, and were now ready to move forward into a new expression of form; into an expression called human. After studying this planet for a while, they became hopeful; Earth just may be the perfect place to take their next step.
A mission plan was made, and the angels decided to embark on this new adventure. They headed over to earth in their highly sophisticated inter-dimensional travel ships. Looking down on this blue beauty, they quickly realized that, while the planet was indeed perfect for them, the environment at present wasn't ready for their mission to begin. It was simply too dense and heavy for the lightness their present bodies needed to merge fully with the human form. They knew that in time it would lighten and be perfect for their mission, but the push to grow was so strong--they were ready NOW.
Not wanting to wait any longer, a meeting was called, and creative solutions were thrown back and forth for days and days. Finally it was decided: a group of angels would go in now, and begin to prepare the planet for their new mission. The angels would create the human form now, and the volunteers would merge with it. They had planned to create a high tech a space suit to wear on top, to offset the density, and wear it while they made their preparations. They would wear the suit until the planet, and the new bodies, were ready.
This space suit was made from the most sophisticated materials, with fancy high speed computer technology, clear glass for visibility, and light weight material for easy mobility.
The group of volunteers began the process of merging with the sacred human form, and then began getting dressed in the high tech space suit. When they were all set, they were propelled to earth in an instant, and once on the planet, the angels began to explore. After a while the group became enthralled with the sights, and each wandered in their own different direction.
Some time passed, and the space suits became cumbersome. The glass had become very foggy, and it was quite difficult to see things clearly. More time passed, and more and more. Soon the angels began to forget their mission; their vision had become clouded and they forgot where they were. More time passed, and the angels started to feel weighed down by the heavy atmosphere, not only forgetting where they were, they also began to forget who they were, and why they came. They became more and more disoriented, weighed down and forgetful by the day. As this confusion set in, the angels began to identify themselves with the space suits. They started believing that the reflection on the inside of the glass was the only thing happening at all.
More time passed, and the angels started feeling very, very, very tired. Separated from each other, and wandering alone on a strange planet became frightening so they sought to find ways to overcome their fears and to find ways to feel better. So much time had passed now, and the angles from above the planet on the inter-dimensional space ships were trying to get their attention. They tried many many ways to alert the angels that the time had come; earth was ready for their mission to begin. It was now time to transition from angel to human, to make their next sacred evolutionary jump.
The angels on earth had become so lost and heavy in their space suits that they didn’t notice the calls from above. More time passed, and the angels began feeling worse and worse. Nothing seemed to work to make them feel better in these heavy and cloudy suits.
Each angel began what seemed like a very long journey, a journey to feel more comfortable inside the heavy cloudy suit. They tried everything: They climbed mountains, sat on logs, wandered through forests, and made special shelters. After what seemed like an eternity, the angels started to feel desperate and exhausted.
One day, one of the angels slipped and fell into a clear lake. She managed to pull herself out of the water, but felt even heavier now, because the suit was so wet. Feeling totally defeated and drained, she was ready to just give up. Finding her last bit of strength, she managed to crawl over into a sunny spot and collapsed down in the grass. When she began to dry off in the sun, she realized suddenly that the space suit glass had become clear, she could see! Looking around in amazement, she slowly began to remember where she was. After some time of drinking in the sights, she realized how long she had been lost for, and knew that by now, earth would be ready for the mission to begin. Being able to clearly see and remember now, she found the dials inside to call up to the ship above.
Receiving the signal back that the time had long begun, she began to slowly remove the space suit. She began peeling off the protective layers one by one and started immediately feeling lighter. Looking down on her new human form in utter amazement she started to giggle with the thrill of feeling so light, and alive. She walked around on the new legs, and began reaching and touching the plant life, and the nearby water. The sights and sounds were totally awe-inspiring. She was so thrilled with the excitement of beginning her mission that she almost forgot her struggle only moments before. She had almost completely forgotten about her adventure in the space suit that had seemed like an eternity of difficulty. After remembering her journey she began to laugh. Just when she thought her journey was ending, she realized that it had only just begun. The time to be an angel was over, and the time to move forward, to be a human, had begun.
