We Are Made Of Stars


‘We are all made of stardust. It sounds like a line from a poem, but there is some solid science behind this statement too: almost every element on Earth was formed at the heart of a star.’ (Find the rest of this article here http://www.physics.org/article-questions.asp?id=52 )

Last night I wrote a poem:



The light
So far from me,
In time, in space,
Long dead,
Long gone
Yet flickering still.

You gave us life,
For we are made of stars.

There is something very empowering about looking up into the night sky knowing that some of the brightest stars, that are actually now dead and gone, even though we can still see them, provided the building blocks for our planet and indeed ourselves. Carbon, Iron, Helium, Oxygen, Hydrogen, and more, and the power of an erupting star sends these elements cascading throughout the Universe.

You and I are part of a light that shone so brightly that we can still see it today, still experience it, still relate to it. And that light exists in us too.

Can you feel it flickering in your chest, your belly, your mind? Can you feel its warmth? Can you feel its guiding hand shedding light on your journey?

If you struggle to find that inner light, stand, sit or lay and look at the night sky and find the brightest star. Stare at it, connect with it, feel where its power touches you. Lay your hand on that spot and draw the light of the star into your body. Let it fill you up, pushing out all the things that you no longer need.

Fill yourself up from head to toe, and beyond. Shut your eyes and really explore how you feel, relax into it.

When you are finished go and help another find the star within them.
