Over at Inspiration Avenue we are running our fabulous 500 followers blogparty. The theme of the party is On the Wings of Inspiration and the question is 'what inspires you?'. Well, that is easy. Mention 'wings' and I am inspired - from angel wings, to majestic archangel wings, to the etheric energy wings around your aura, to the wings of birds flying freely in the sky, butterfly wings and my poems winging their way to heaven!
But I did not want to create another one of my many winged creations. I wanted to challenge my own inner voice a little bit more. And after some contemplation, this was my conclusion : the symbology and the metaphysical meaning of The Star inspires me.
And this is She :
She is inspiration, hope, belief, trust and faith in all things amazing and beautiful. She is acceptance, integration and embodiment (as opposed to transcendence).
She is the radiant light against the dark night sky. She is the clarity amidst the chaos of life.
The Star holds the message that beyond the duality of joy and sorrow; beyond loss and gain; beyond the duality of struggle and peace and beyond the duality of masculine and feminine principles; there Is one reality of Love. Some call that reality God or other Holy Names. And everything flows from that True Love, abundantly without judgement, without regard, no conditions demanded. And all Life flows from Love and it manifests as both the sadness and the joy, the golden light of peace and clarity amidst the chaos.
And no-one knows and understand this better than us, the artists. Those who create with word, and clay. Those who struggle to speak that deep understanding which live in their hearts.
And in this world of form, Love exists beyond form and in form and when we can see the Love in form regardless of its appearance, then we know The Star.
And each one of you, who speak from the Silence; each one who opens her heart and reveals herself, you are the Star and my inspiration!
