“Never let anyone dim your light. You are a spark of Creation. You are designed to shine, shine, shine!” … Susanne
It’s easy to find people who are not appreciative of our “Shine”. It’s even easier to find people, organizations, governments and religious groups that are intent upon squashing aforementioned “Shine”. They are … after all … a dime-a-dozen. They seem to be everywhere. But what they haven’t figured out yet … and what we have forgotten … is that no-one and no-thing can destroy what is not theirs to touch.
I’m not sure how we came to be so forgetful of Who-We-Truly-Are. I’m thinking that it was probably a direct result of long-ago Controllers … who were so insecure about their own power that they set about eliminating our understanding of ours. After all … it’s hard to control a population who knows … beyond a shadow of a doubt … that who they are in their Core … is a direct and well-loved son or daughter of Capital “L” Life … and I don’t mean in some airy-fairy way. As Carl Sagan once said: “The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of star-stuff.”
Ultimately it doesn’t matter whether you look at life and your own awesome Spirit/spark from the Carl Sagan/scientific point of view or from the Capital “L” Life point of view that Miss Perky, Ms. Sunshine & I share … because it all boils down to the same the same basic premise: namely … our roots started from something way bigger than our little bodies would imply. When you run across the doubters … the complainers … the criticisers … or the Controllers … and they are out there … remember that they’re doing all of those things because they’re lost and afraid. They no longer remember … or even believe … that their spark is special. So … as the penguins in “Madagascar” would say: “Just smile and nod.” … and then … walk away shining like the star-stuff you are.
Godspeed and Joyful Journeying Everyone
