“Nothing can dim the light that shines from within.” Maya Angelou
I AM TARA
I have always been drawn to the stars in the sky. Those beautiful, little points of light that can represent an entire galaxy. Infinite possibilities in little pinpricks of light make me happy.
I found out last year that in the ancient, but still surviving, language Sanskrit, Tara means “star”. I cannot tell you how happy that made me. My name is defined as one of my favorite things, starlight! (Thank you to the moon and back, mom) When I looked further I found this part of the Sanskrit definition of Tara, “…like a star that perpetually consumes its own energy, Tara represents the never ending desires that fuels all life.” This resonated with me.
My desire to be in this life has helped me survive situations that many thought were not possible to survive. There is so much to learn in this life and I do not take one second of it for granted, good or bad. I do not think it is a random chance that my process or search is always for light. It has to be dark to realize we need to look for the light. This is not just a metaphor about life for me. It is what I have always done, sometimes subconsciously. My soul craves the light and I bet yours does too. Do you need more light in your physical space? Would you like to dive deep and look for the light inside of you?
WE ARE RADIANT
I would like to share a journal entry from 11-11-12. It was the beginning of a journey to a new way of life for me after a Near Death Experience during an emergency surgery. That experience made starlight even more important for me.
“When I was quiet & asked, “What do you want me to be?” It answered, “Be the light, just be light.” I was in amazement. I meditate & think of that & it feels like light radiates out of me.
A few days ago I was outside on a starry night meditating & it felt like the stars were interacting with me. Don’t quite know how to explain that yet. I’ve always been fascinated by the stars as most people I know. People get sad when they can’t see the stars because of the artificial light of the city lights. Poets, artists, musicians paint, write odes & sing songs to them “…twinkle, twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are” I was watching Super Soul Sunday on Oprah & she asked Deepak Chopra who he thought he was.
He said, “I’m a spark of the Divine and so is everyone else.” Something in me cheered, “Yes! Jackpot!” I’m not getting answers unique to just me, but if we listen we all are being told the same thing. We are whole. We are all one and we are in the light and the light at the same time.
EMBRACE YOUR STARLIGHT LIFE
We, as humans, crave looking at the stars, study the stars, imagine the stars because they trigger a memory of a whisper we knew to be true before we were born in our human bodies.
We are all a spark, twinkle, or star of the universal light.
Stars remind us of home. Yes, dear one, Stars remind us of home.
What a gift we are given to be able to look up in the darkness and see reminders that we are of the Divine light.
We still are even here in this world.
It’s time to love ourselves enough to remember.
My name is Tara and I am ready to remember.
Who’s with me?
