BEULAH WHO THOUGHT SHE WAS SWIMMING by Francis Moraine

Beulah is a barnacle. But she doesn’t know it. She cannot see the enormous whale that she is stuck upon and has convinced herself that she is the ‘Queen of the Universe’ with powerful legs, which she uses to swim, leap, and ward off sharks. In reality her barnacle legs are feathery appendages designed for filter feeding. But this doesn’t stop her ego from embracing her delusional worldview. Luckily for her, Beulah encounters visitors who challenge her worldview and set the stage for her enlightenment. In a fanciful manner, the story brings to life the wisdom of mystical texts such as the Yoga Sutras and The Tibetan Book of the Dead.

While working as a scientist,  Francis Moraine attempted a mindfulness-of-breathing meditation and soon experienced unexpected and wonderful states of consciousness. This motivated him to pursue a rigorous program of meditation, which he upholds to this day. His experiences inspired him to write stories designed to help readers discover their innate spiritual abilities. The illustrated novella Beulah Who Thought She Was Swimming is such a tale.
