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,

Former Green Beret, Jeremy Brown Exposes the FBI Infiltration of Patriots

Former Green Beret, Jeremy Brown Exposes the FBI Infiltration of Patriots

In December 2020, Jeremy was visited by two FBI agents who tried to recruit him to inform on, infiltrate, and turn against other members of the Oath Keepers group. Jeremy’s training kicked in as he taped the agents. Months later, he was so bothered by the FBI’s lies and false testimony by FBI Director Christopher Wray, Jeremy felt compelled to go public…

Asheville’s Police Shrug-off City Leaders

Asheville’s Police Shrug-off City Leaders

The Asheville Citizen-Times newspaper reported that one candidate running for City Council wanted a 50% cut in the police budget. She also said that policing was inherently violent and originated in “slave patrols and property protection.” When police are taunted, disrespected, and defunded, they grow weary. When they shrug off their burden by resigning, the fragile world of law-and-order falls…

Our Nation’s Greatest Threat is the Fascist Democrat

Our Nation’s Greatest Threat is the Fascist Democrat

Communists, fascists, and democratic socialists get along in America for one reason, and one reason only: they all hate free markets, and free markets are what emerges when you have free people. The notion of a ‘moral and intellectual elite’ being in charge is no different than the argument that we need those of noble birth to control us – we are still having the same debate we had before our nation was founded, with a lot of particularly younger Americans wanting to return to serfdom, without really knowing what all that entails…

One Year to Victory, the Communist Takeover of America

One Year to Victory, the Communist Takeover of America

Along with the ongoing war on police initiated by Barack Obama, the infiltration of American government institutions has been well underway for many years. All one has to do is look back on the photo of the West Point cadet a few years ago who posed for a graduation day photograph. He was holding his hat (Cover, for all you military folks), so that his concealed handwritten note on the inside of the Cover could be seen. The note read “Communism Will Win.”

Biden Killing America’s Energy Security With Sea Level Hysteria

Biden Killing America’s Energy Security With Sea Level Hysteria

If Biden’s intention in promoting the sea level scare were simply to boost his popularity among the extreme left of his party, his misguided concerns wouldn’t be much of a problem. But the president’s goal is clearly to stop all fossil fuel use and ultimately subjugate us with flimsy and environmentally damaging wind and solar power, requiring energy rationing for everyone…

The Reason the Patriot Act No Longer Works

The Reason the Patriot Act No Longer Works

We must realize the power of arrest now basically lies in Marxist hands, and they will use it. Already they have perverted the definition of who is and who is not a “terrorist.” It’s no longer the foreign Islamic Jihadists who killed over 3000 Americans in a single day, who are the terrorist!” To suggest is to be labeled Islamaphobic, but Oath Keepers, former American soldiers, and policemen still willing to keep the oaths they took to Protect and Defend the…

To Secede, or Not To Secede, That is the Question for Oregon and Idaho

To Secede, or Not To Secede, That is the Question for Oregon and Idaho

The Oregon vote shows both the desire of the people to change and their willingness to fight for their land. Is that enough? As of the writing, I don’t know how the legislature of Oregon will respond to this vote. Are the legislators willing to trap people in an unhappy situation to further their political goals? We’ve seen that before in world history, and it doesn’t end well.

John Kerry is a Consequential Internal Security Threat to America

John Kerry is a Consequential Internal Security Threat to America

John Kerry co-chaired the 2020 presidential campaign Biden-Sanders unity climate change task force with the socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., which provided the framework for a “Green New Deal,” since repackaged as the Democrat “infrastructure” plan. Kerry has a habit of being in the center of many of the worst policies that pose major security risks for America…
