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,

When Does the Fight For Freedom Become Its Own Tyranny?

When Does the Fight For Freedom Become Its Own Tyranny?

How many people are praising Governor Ron DeSantis for his recent actions to protects the rights of the citizens in his state? But have you taken a closer look at what is in these laws and executive orders? If Americans paid more attention to the constitutionality of the policy than the party membership of the person or persons enacting it, we could avoid the horrid enormities and frightful despotism our first President warned us about…

Biden’s Unmaking of American Greatness

Biden’s Unmaking of American Greatness

Biden is hell-bent on passing, by far, the largest debt and inflation-producing legislation in our nation’s history. The Biden administration is trading Trump energy independence for tickets to a green new fantasyland. Mexican cartels trafficking drugs and humans — children and women — contribute to an escalating national crime crisis. Last year set an FBI record for homicides up 30% from 2019…

The Death of Free Markets

The Death of Free Markets

In the Infrastructure Bill of $3.5 Trillion, grants will be given to companies that comply. Hefty penalties will be placed on companies that don’t demand their employees or customers’ vax, while rebates are given to those who buy union autos. When your local government authorities start to exceed their constitutionally granted powers by working with Private International and National organizations through PPPs, they no longer represent the people…

From Whence Comes the Validity of Our Law?

From Whence Comes the Validity of Our Law?

Laws that do not meet Constitutional guidelines are prima facia invalid. A decision rendered in Norton vs. Shelby County 118 US 425, p 442 states: “An unconstitutional act is not law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties; affords no protection; it creates no office; it is in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed.” That ruling stands as the basis for nullification and non-compliance to government-imposed mandates that violate…

Biden’s Lost Words: “Leave no man behind”

Biden’s Lost Words: “Leave no man behind”

Joe Biden, President of the United States of America, once known as the greatest country in the world (before January 2021), surrendered utterly and completely to the Taliban terrorists with barely a murmur, making the United States the world’s newest state sponsor of global terrorism. His decision to ignore our time-honored pledge ‘to leave no man behind’ resulted in…

Vaccine Pharmacovigilance and Failure of Early Warning Systems to Limit Death and Disability

Vaccine Pharmacovigilance and Failure of Early Warning Systems to Limit Death and Disability

The public has been much more responsive to this system than the vaccine manufacturers (Pfizer, BioNTech, Moderna, and JNJ), the program sponsors (FDA/CDC), and the media. Collectively these “vaccine stakeholders” have largely ignored the astronomical number of deaths, hospitalizations, urgent care visits, and permanent disability occurring after COVID-19 vaccination…

The Second Amendment Insures Peace Through Strength

The Second Amendment Insures Peace Through Strength

The final bulwark against this genocide, now coming against Constitutional Americans, those who believe in liberty over tyranny⏤is the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment brings peace through strength, love through strength. The Second Amendment is a message of love because it is a message of life. Put simply, a way to stay alive in the face of Democrat-run genocide…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #5

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #5

Vaccines are coming soon for children under 12. This is a big problem. How should I prove to my ex that my kid does not need a vax? – Can Dr. McCullough please explain the argument against everyone needing to be vaxxed for herd immunity to COVID? – How can 96% of all US doctors be covid vaccinated? Makes me feel like being unvaccinated is a bad choice. Are these stats correct?

Here’s Why the Biden Coup Tactics Will Soon Escalate

Here’s Why the Biden Coup Tactics Will Soon Escalate

They will recruit the CCP, Iran, the Taliban, the illegal immigrants to do their dirty work, just as they did with BLM and Antifa. The Leftist tour de force will attempt to exploit every imaginable tactic they can harness to conquer our republic. But they can never take our souls without our permission. Every unharnessed soul is a threat to Communism…

Charter of Umar – Pact of Umar

Charter of Umar – Pact of Umar

Historians are NOT unanimous as to which Umar this Charter / Pact or Covenant is actually attributed. In the final analysis, it is irrelevant to whom it should be attributed since the Conquering Muhammadan Muslims implemented it and have been doing so for the last 1400 years and continue to do so in the 21st century, in all Sharia-compliant Muslim states…
