When did you last let your Starchild out to play?

When was the last time you felt awe and wonder for the world around you? 
When did you last stop not only to smell the flowers, but to wonder what makes their scent so beautiful? 
When did you last look down at the earth beneath your feet outdoors and marvel at the expanse of life growing there? 
When did you stop being amazed and asking questions?
Do you know what I’m talking about? That magical, childlike wonder that encourages us to look at the world in a different way, to take in the sheer awesomeness of the elements, the planet and all who share her; that beautiful, bright, shining inquisitiveness that encourages us to explore, to grow and to SEE what so many people miss as they stomp through life.
My spiritual teachers referred to this element of the self as The Starchild (it’s a really fitting title, isn’t it?). The Starchild is one of several elements that makes up the human ‘whole’, and it’s the part of us that keeps the magic alive and helps us to walk in beauty.

Rigid doctrine

Not too long ago, I was watching a documentary on TV which focused on a fundamentalist Christian group. What became really apparent was that nobody seemed to think for themselves or to ask questions. 
Despite their claims of a deep connection to the divine, they seemed to take much for granted and lived by a set of rigid rules and doctrine, dictated by their leaders. The ‘light’ from The Starchild seemed to have been extinguished in each and every one of them.
This led to some interesting discussions with some friends of mine who were raised in organised religions (and, to be clear, I’m absolutely not putting all organised religion in the same category as a fundamentalist church) and were taught, it seems, from a very early age to not question the ‘rules’.
One of these unspoken rules seemed to be that the teachings passed down to them are accepted and lived by; there’s no room for doubt, reason or disagreement.
If we learn to blindly follow without question, if we learn to judge and to live in the head and in negative emotions, the beauty, innocence and magical qualities of The Starchild might become buried, deep, deep down, never to marvel at the light again. If the Starchild thrives on doing, seeing, adventuring, questioning, exploring and seeing the beauty and life in all things, doesn’t this contrast directly with dogmatic teachings?

Switching off

If dogma effectively kills The Starchild, it’s a problem not only confined to some of the stricter organised religions, but also found in politics, science, business and, perhaps, even with some adults and peers we might come across during our childhood.
If we’re taught to switch off that bright-eyed, innocent, delightfully inquisitive part of ourselves, we’re learning to close down our Starchild.
Insisting there’s a scientific explanation for everything, stubbornly pointing to biblical texts at every turn, insisting something is right because it fits with a political system or steadfastly holding on to a starchy, pretended ‘adult’ view of the world at large does not a Starchild make.
The Starchild understands the magic of the mystery; that some things aren’t meant to be understood by us humans… yet The Starchild gazes in awe and wonder anyway. And that’s beautiful, isn’t it?

Wowzers! Look at all that green stuff!

When someone asks me to explain what I mean by that Starchild energy, I encourage them to think about a puppy when it first ventures outdoors. ‘Oh wow! Look! A blade of grass! Oh wowzers! Another blade of grass! Look… everyone… there’s grass here too! Isn’t that amazing?!” We’ve all seen that kind of behaviour, right? That’s Starchild, right there.
Now take that and imagine it in children. The child who finds the magic in every little thing. Sometimes it displays at that age when kids get their fingers into everything… and that’s when it’s our role to keep them safe and create positive boundaries, but to ensure we’re not killing that Starchild energy at the same time. 
Do you remember what it was like to feel that way? Can you grasp even the wispiest of memories relating to that kind of magical, pure energy? When did you last feel that way as an adult? When did you last ALLOW yourself to feel that way as an adult.
People, wake up. We are not here merely to work and pay bills. We’re here to explore, to love and to learn. That Starchild energy is a crucial part of being a happy, healthy, balanced adult too. 
Whether we’re at home, at our chosen place of worship, at work or in the bar on a weekend, we’re surrounded by ‘dogma’ 24/7. Please… be aware of it. Find the line. Don’t let it strangle your inner Starchild.
Play. Learn. Love. Laugh. Find the magic… no matter how old you are.
Until next time,

Stop Calling it “Vaccine Hesitancy!”

Stop Calling it “Vaccine Hesitancy!”

The risk-versus-benefit scale seems to be tipping heavily toward risk. The coming cold/flu season could potentially spell disaster for the vaccinated population. Time will soon tell. We’ll not know for a few years if prions (sub-viral particles) will be generated by the mRNA or DNA injection, but it’s a very real possibility…

Did the FDA & CDC Withhold Evidence-based Treatments from Americans?

Did the FDA & CDC Withhold Evidence-based Treatments from Americans?

My fellow Americans, it’s time to do a full, transparent, and verifiable audit of all death certificates so we can officially correct the death count nationwide. It’s time to defund the CDC and FDA until regime change can be instituted in the HHS, FDA, CDC, NVSS so that the new people put in place understand the privilege of serving We The People and honor both their oaths of office and…

The Dumbing Down of America by the Truly Dumb

In addition to the Democrat Party, we know who’s at the forefront of pushing CRT to our students. Organizations like Black Lives Matter and the Radical Progressive Teacher’s Unions like the American Federation of Teachers and the National Education Association. These groups have no moral, legal or constitutional right to thrust CRT on…

The ‘Brain Trust’ Behind Joe Biden

Former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell has described Susan Rice as the real Oval Office leader and “shadow president.” Ron Klain also played a key role in coordinating the Obama administration’s response to the 2014-2015 Ebola outbreak.

The End of Human Rights and the Beginning of Tyranny

The End of Human Rights and the Beginning of Tyranny

America used to be a nation of ideals and values, with laws that represented those ideals and values. While there was disagreement over what the laws should be, there was a wide degree of agreement with regard to our ideals and values. We no longer have any shared values or ideals. Much of the left views our national founding and our traditional ideals, not just as passe, but as vile and evil…

Does Freedom of Speech Include the Freedom to Swear?

Does Freedom of Speech Include the Freedom to Swear?

Public schools don’t have an interest in protecting student speech; they have a duty. Schools are institutions of instruction, not “nurseries of democracy.” Perhaps, if the schools these justices went to had spent more time instructing them and less time considering what was in the school’s interest, these men and women would realize not only that America is not a democracy, but that our Founding Fathers feared that it would become one…

Political Correctness and Science Don’t Mix

Political Correctness and Science Don’t Mix

We now see Political Correctness in the arbitrary flip-flopping of the CDC’s positions: masks aren’t effective, no – wear masks; get vaccinated, wait- vaccinations aren’t effective; those vaccinated don’t have to wear a mask, no -wait -those vaccinated do have to wear masks. These are political edicts, not scientific edicts. The CDC’s own data contradicts their mandates…

China’s Comprehensive Unrestricted Bioweapons Program Exposed

In sharing some of her findings with Dr. Poon, Dr. Yan was warned not to ‘cross the red line,’ a common reference in Chinese culture to getting into the subject matter with which one should not concern oneself. He ultimately warned her that she would be ‘disappeared,’ a reference to being imprisoned or killed, were she to continue asserting her findings of the cover-up…
