One was named Arjuna and the other was Lord Krishna and they were having a bit of an argument. Arjuna was saying that although he was the greatest archer who had ever lived, he did not like the idea of warring with his own family. Lord Krishna was trying to teach him the value of knowing what his spiritual identity in this time and place and to know that he is not supposed to avoid his responsibilities or obiligations and that he had to be true to himself and do the right thing, even when it didn’t seem to make sense at the time. They didn’t seem to find it strange that Gracie simply blasted through a time portal on a pink yoga mat and landed in their chariot, in fact, right about then, Lord Krishna looked at Gracie and called her General. She noticed that she was also wearing pink armor, a pink helmet and that she had a pink bow and arrow, herself. Pink bows, gold arrows, each with a pink feather at the end. He then asked her advice as to what she thought was the best strategy. Gracie remembered having read about a Chinese general who used the art of deception to overcome the enemy because the general’s army was highly out numbered. She also remembered reading about something called the Indian Rope Trick. Her father loved to perform magic tricks and told her about the rope trick that astounded thousands of people in India. She told them her plan. She would perform the Indian Rope trick by shooting her arrow, attached to the gold rope from inside the chariot up into the sky and into a cloud. She would climb up the rope to distract the other army, while calling upon all of the greatest warriors of all time to come and help. She snapped her fingers and presto, her pink jeweled scepter appeared. Up shot her arrow, up the rope she climbed into a pink cloud, while the advancing army looked in astonishment and came to a halt.
