to the Odyssey of the Soul Address.
email is in honor of Mattie J.T. Stephanek, a light soul confined
in a body requiring a wheelchair and breathing apparatus all of
his life. Breathing was difficult, speaking was difficult,
just staying alive was difficult. He'd already lost three
brothers to the same disease. His mother has it too.
is a soul whose mission clearly was to uplift others, to encourage
others, to remind others of the beauty of life and to remind all
of the truth of spirit through his extraordinary insight.
died last week at age 13. In those short number of years Mattie
reached millions through three books - all of which became best
sellers. (You will find them at any bookstore, including of
course internet bookstores.)
his biggest fans is Marilyn Parsons, a light soul herself who has been a
great supporter of Light's Book. (Check the cover design,

writes about the night she watched Mattie on the Larry King Show:
Last night I saw Mattie J. T. Stepanek in his wheelchair on Larry
King Live. What a delight and how inspiring to hear profound
words coming out of a child. I believe his words are profound
and he is a delight for the pure simple fact that he has accepted
his death. His brother died before him of the same disease.
His mother who clearly loves and is unquestionably honest
with him stands by him and encourages him through Life even though
death is right around the corner. No one hides or even tries
to hide the truth from him. He cannot physically get up and
run from it and in his mind he does not even try. He just
simply accepts who he is, therefore his wisdom is off the charts.
He did not hear it from others, he does not quote it from
scripture, he did not read it in a book, in fact, he takes it one
step further and writes his own books because he knows deep down
inside the truth is already inside of him. His words last
night where just amazing. He was on a panel with three famous
"adults" who were Sylvia Browne, Max Lucado, (a famous minister
and author) and a famous Catholic Priest who I do not recognize
by name. These three adults where discussing angels for the
evening with Larry, along with Mattie. The adults think they
have their theories and the ministers quoted from the Bible, but
it was the simple words coming from the mouth of an 11 year old
(not sure about his age) that just blew everyone away.
Larry King asked the panel if they thought there are dark angels
out there. The three adults gave their opinions which proved
nothing and quoted their scriptures and out of the mouth of a babe
so to speak came this remarkable but simple story:
With a smile as wide as a the ocean, Mattie says "Larry, it
is really quite simple, I sit here in this wheelchair
and I face God." His arms are outstretched and reaching
forward. "And I am always reaching for God. Then there
is me, and I am a Spirit. I am the Spirit that God made. Now
in between me, my spirit, and God, is the in-between which is full
of angels, or messengers as I also like to call them. Now
these messengers are forever giving me messages and indicating the
good in life. I know they are, he says, because I can
feel it in my heart. And even when I cannot see them they
make me feel good, they inspire me, they help me in my life and
even in death I know they will be there. Now if I try and
turn around in this wheelchair I am no longer facing God." Mattie physically
tried as best he could in his lack of movement to turn around so
we can all see what it is he is trying to convey. "Of
course," he says, with his cute little face and dimples, "Of
coarse there is darkness behind me and whether you believe in dark
angels or dark entities, Larry, how could you not know that behind
you it is dark, and you no longer face God. It is so simple
Now I ask anyone out there, how much more simply put could the story
be told and yet the profundity of it just blows my mind. I
stand up for Mattie and if only everyone where willing to listen,
to really listen to the stories of the children, for they truly
are the LIGHT!
And truly we are, all children
of the Light.
Now, have a Light Moment.
Light The Earth. Then
You. Then Loved Ones.
And This Week, How About Sending
Light -Specially to Mattie. His Angels Must Be Singing With
Joy As They Welcome Him Home.
