The Lakota believe that the people come from the stars.. this seems likely to me from what I see in the sky at night. I see the pathway to the Spirit world, so if we return that way, why not also come from that place? Stars, like people, are each unique. They are full of light and diversity. How boring things would be if we were all the same. If only we could fully realize the beauty of our differences, perhaps peace would prevail. In life, and in love, comes conflict. Through the conflict we grow and become strong. We become real people with real courage and vision. Without the darkness we would not know the light, without tragedy we would not know hope. I so love the night sky and the incredible amount of stars. This is the reason I love living outside of the city in the mountains. When I look up into the sky on a warm summer night I feel as if I am in the womb of the universe, experiencing the oneness of a total design of pure beauty. It is truly a mystery, and though I may not understand all the implications, I am aware that I am a unique piece of the great design.
