Star People

The human being, made of star stuff, is a microcosm of the entire universe.

The human being, made of star stuff, is a microcosm of the entire universe.

Being in the world, but not of it, does not imply an ascending journey to escape Earthly life, but a radical re-engagement with the world knowing our true place as a fractal of God. The spiritual journey can get hijacked as the futile pursuit of certainty– a journey from the unknown in search for the known. Inverting this upside-down paradigm goes by another name: relinquishing the myth of original sin for our inheritance of Original Virtue.

Our relaxation is assured when we allow ourselves to be relieved of the burden of security. Then we can put down our long list of demands from life. Star People asks us to become so familiar with our souls, that we cannot imagine being anywhere other than home already. When Original Virtue is the known base from which we take flight for all our journeys, the unknown takes on a different texture and quality. A bit like infinite possibility. A bit like a soul-ride of never-ending Self-revelation.

Star People in a reading

“Consider well the seed that gave you birth: you were not made to live your lives as brutes, but to be followers of worth and knowledge.” So urges Ulysses to his crew as they approach Pillars of Hercules in Dante’s Inferno. The Star People card suggests crashing past the barriers of the old world from a place of our inherent virtue. Behind the veil, the rudimentary mechanics of cause and effect are the slowest route to transformation.

The physics are simply different in this position. There is an alternative to the step-by-step, arduous clearing and purification process that – at the same time – is not a short cut or abrogation of responsibility. If we fold time on itself in the field of stars, two distant points (our ‘present’ and our ‘future’) can merge. Yet we must be empty enough to trip this light fantastic. Star People showing up in a reading suggests that as we approach new thresholds, our grip on time-space may get a bit wobbly.
