As a species, we seem to have forgotten that we are made of Stars. The brilliant minds at Physics Central have demonstrated that on a molecular and atomic level, 93% of the mass in our bodies is comprised of Stardust. We embody the stars! If we look into a kaona (level of perception or interpretation) of this amazing fact, we might note that the stars are the light of of the heavens. Exploding Stars create unfathomable light, energy & the building blocks of entire worlds. Nestled in the majority of our cellular structure lies a potential of Infinite Creation, Infinite Light. This body — 'taken for granted' as a vehicle to move us around life — may in fact be a doorway to Creation itself inside of us.
Ancient Peoples knew of their intimate relationship to the Stars, often tracing their ancestral line to heavenly bodies. The Ancient Hawaiians, Ancient Celts, and many other cultures, find their origins in the Pleiades or 'Seven Sisters' constellation. In a very tangible way, we are descendants of the Stars, and therefore, directly related to every fellow human being, as well as every known life form on Earth. The Life that moves us, moves every living thing, Coming from this magnificent common ancestry, we are One family.
In each moment, we can choose to source ourselves in this expansive knowing instead of more narrow perspectives, If I value my beliefs, religion or race above anything else, I can come into frequent conflict with those who are also limited to these priorities. However when I value the foundation of connectivity, our collective ancestry, our commonality above all else, I will likely find more unity, harmony and expansiveness in my experience. We can recognize that we are all connected at the Source.
.Ancient Wisdom gives us the tools to pay deeper attention to this kaona (level of perception). As we listen, in an open attention, to the sensations, rhythms, textures and shapes of our own body, we open a pathway to the very same molecular and atomic elements within us that originated in the Stars. We begin to access this ancient, common ancestry. We begin to re-member our perceptions of ourselves: the worlds within us and the worlds around us.
Knowing our origins to be in the vast power and brilliance of exploding stars, we contain within us a deeper and higher potential than we might have ever imagined. We can choose to align with this vast expanse, to see from this place, to honor each living being as our relative, to honor Life above all else.
Tonight, before you go to sleep, remember that star stuff lives comprises most of you.....is alive in you.......and listen.
