Greetings, dear kindred spirits!
Often, I am met with curiosity and intrigue when people discover my undying affection for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
They ask, “Millie, why, as a grown-ass woman, are you so captivated by these turtles? How do they align with your spiritual path?” Today, I would love to share the deeper meaning behind this enchantment, which goes far beyond the surface.
My profound connection with these green heroes can be traced back to the time when my two boys were young. In my early twenties, we shared countless adventures together, forming an unbreakable bond. The Turtles became a bridge to those treasured memories. However, as I’ve grown wiser with age, I’ve come to realize that the allure of these four characters goes beyond nostalgia. Each of them represents distinct personalities, resonating with facets of our own psyches.
Let’s dive into this magical world and explore the unique qualities of each turtle, in case you’ve somehow missed out on their extraordinary presence:
First, there’s Raphael, the red turtle. At first glance, he may appear grumpy, shy, and intensely serious. Yet, his brooding nature hides the essence of many creative souls. Raphael embodies the internal, introspective mind that thrives in solitude. He is a thinker, a loner, and a deep contemplator. Struggling to let go of the past, he teaches us the importance of forgiveness and freeing ourselves from emotional burdens. Raphael reminds us to shatter the walls that inhibit our growth and embrace the transformative power of humility.
Then we have Leonardo, the blue turtle. He is the embodiment of ambition, charisma, and responsibility. As a natural-born leader and a perfectionist, Leonardo possesses a relentless drive to achieve. His logical mind solves problems with unmatched efficiency, making him the ideal candidate for any task. Leonardo’s presence inspires us to pursue our goals with passion, reminding us that our determination can influence the world around us positively.
Donatello, the purple turtle, represents the analytical, mathematical genius among our heroes. If the TMNT crew merged with the Big Bang Theory, he would perfectly relate to Sheldon! Donatello is the ultimate techie, capable of unraveling the most intricate puzzles. His thirst for knowledge spans from philosophy to science, balancing theoretical understanding with practical application. However, his quest for concrete answers may sometimes challenge his spiritual growth. Donatello reminds us of the importance of embracing the mysteries of life while grounding ourselves in the pursuit of wisdom.
Last but not least, my personal favorite, Michelangelo! The orange dude who effortlessly spreads joy wherever he goes. Michelangelo’s infectious energy and open-hearted nature make him a natural magnet for connections. He exudes a genuine love for life, bringing people together through laughter and camaraderie. Whether it’s owning an adventure-tour company, performing arts, or simply embracing the beauty of nature, Michelangelo embodies the essence of joy. His spirit calls to us, urging us to let go of inhibitions, find humor in life’s challenges, and embrace the second half of our journey with open arms.
It is my belief that we all possess qualities of the TMNT within us. Just like other superheroes (despite the heated debates of comic aficionados), we can lose ourselves in their “Cowabunga” antics. As we observe their adventures, we learn to release control and surrender to the joy of the present moment. Yes, they may be teenagers with their fair share of mischief, but under the guidance of their wise mentor, Splinter, they navigate the path to adulthood.
If we could only incorporate a fragment of each turtle’s essence into our lives, imagine the sweetness that would ensue! It is a rare moment indeed that does not evoke laughter when the Turtles grace our presence. So, I invite you to join me in the realm of fantasy and ask yourself, “What would Michelangelo do in this situation?” You may find that sometimes, the answer lies in the simplicity of a good pizza and the reminder to find lightness in every moment.
As we embark on this journey of self-discovery, let us learn from these remarkable turtles and carry their teachings within us. Together, we can create a world infused with laughter, unity, and a profound sense of joy.
With love, laughter, and a slice of pizza,
Millie America Parmer
Every morning I light my candles, say my prayers, and enter into the magic of allowing Spirit to share a little wisdom. These are my words and a safe place for them to land. I write from the mountains of Western North Carolina, 20 miles east of Asheville. I am an observer of nature, love and life. Thank you for stopping by and joining me on this passion of words.
