we are all made of stars

"We are a way for the universe to know itself. Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return. And we can, because the cosmos is also within us. We're made of star stuff," Carl Sagan, COSMOS 


A meditation.

Tonight before you settle yourself for sleep find a star in the sky. Go outside or look for it through a window. See it.

Then, as you arrange yourself comfortably in your bed, cup one hand over your heart and think of the star. See it. In you. In your heart. 

You are the same. You are made of the same matter that makes up everything in the universe. Feel the magnificence of this. The simplicity of what we all are.  Allow this notion to fill you with wonder, for it is wonderful, as are you.

Sleep softly amongst the stars. Goodnight xo
