For as long as humans have been alive, we have taken to gazing at the stars. We revel in their beauty and become filled with a sense of awe. And even though they are so grand and we are so small, we find our own piece of heaven in their light. They connect us back to our origins and help to tell our eternal story.
Once upon a time, our ancestors would sit around the camp fire to recount the legends of old. These stories were written across the night’s sky and passed down to us as mythologies and constellations. The stars helped to explain who we are, how we got here, and where we are going.
As fate would have it, a new type of star has been created. It has come along and stolen the attention of the human mind. We no longer go out and look at our distant relatives as we once did. The stars of old have been replaced by sports stars, movie stars, TV stars, superstars, pornstars, and all of the other “stars” that serve as distractions to steal and degrade our conscious awareness.
Night after night, humans sit in front of their televisions and computers to watch these stars. The stars tell them about love and loss, life and death, victory and defeat, and all of the other human conditions. We vicariously ride waves the waves of emotions created by these stars. And unless we are thinking critically, we passively accept the messages being sent to us by the storytellers.
Unfortunately, it seems that the storytellers are not working for the betterment of humanity. They have poisoned our bodies, minds, and souls with their warped reality. We have become infected with their greed, jealousy, and lust. We have been fooled into thinking of their stars as beautiful and heroic, envying and emulating them without realizing how beautiful each one of us truly is.
It does not have to be like this. If we remember our origins, we will no longer need the “stars” of today. Each one of us is a star that can shine brightly. When we radiate our love, we are able connect with all that is, all that was, and all that will ever be.
