“Be humble for you are made of earth. Be noble for you are made of stars.”
This Serbian proverb shows, how across the world, we as humanity already know secrets and truths on how to be whole.
The reason we might feel lost is that each generation tries to make this truth their own. It’s easy in the rush of experiencing life to forget our essence while playing the stories of what we might be…
At times we stray,
At times we forget
At times we break apart in order to come full circle back into the simple truths.
Yes we are building a brand new global world now… but all of what we are building is still based upon the humble truths that…
- We are made of earth… so we must take care of that earth to be whole.
- We are from the stars and climbing to reach our light… but again must stay humble in our path lest we fall to becoming merely star dust rather the star itself.
When feeling hopeless, when feeling powerless, when feeling out of control… Take a humble step and pause. Listen to your heart. What you need is already there. It’s a matter of being present rather than rushing.
At this point I can expand this out in a thousand ways, but at this point the advice should always tailored to fit your heart, so as not to get lost in all the variations of truth.
A Side Note:
While it is easy to say to someone: listen to the heart.
We must accept that for a person disconnected from the heart, this type of advice is also the most confusing.
You have to show small tricks that will guide them back to their center, show a person their smile, reflect back a moment of “their” joy, reconnect a person to a moment of pause so the noise of a high stress life can for that moment go away.
It is for us to be calm and be a calm place for reflection. Not to keep saying: “listen to the heart” but rather to hold peace to allow a person to see heart.
To be a spirit walker in this place today is our challenge: A challenge in helping people find their hearts by keeping grounded while seeing the stars.
If you feel stuck, its OK to ask for directions back to your heart. If no one is around to help, then simply take your own hand, place it on your heart and smile… and follow the actions that best keep you smiling.
Don’t make the mistake thinking that comfort is the same as smiling… it isn’t… The path which keeps us strong and smiling often contains many discomforting challenges.
But here is the truth: You will still smile against the challenges that truly reinforce you are made of earth and come from the stars.
