Although it is not the case now, I can still recall a time when cartoons would captivate my attention to the point where I would forget to blink. A child’s mind is like a sponge, and the best way to learn is by having fun.
I wanted to teach children something important that is not taught in school and neither is it talked about much in our western culture. There is a lot out there teaching children the importance of staying in school and staying active, ie. the mind and body. When it comes to the mind, body, and spirit, little emphasis is put on the spiritual connection.
It is important to start building the fundamentals of life at a young age. This is why I chose to start introducing the idea to young children to open the door to further spiritual learning. Therefore, the concept will not be foreign to them as they grow and ultimately be better integrated into society.
