Have you ever considered the possibility that you are a star?
Consider the many forms of the Creator. How many of them are solar? How much rests in the becoming light, the regal noon, the aging ram, the midnight rebirth? Are the words of Creation emerging on the waves of daylight, their vibrations another form of energy, each photon a cosmic word? When we understand that the Powers, their skin luminous gold, come in a cloud of perfume, are we just speaking of the effects of Their glow?
But we, too, speak. We too have emanations, our words vibrating like light, emerging from us, creating, shaping, and illuminating the world.
When we have wisdom, we radiate it forth.
When we have knowledge, we radiate it forth.
When we have love, we radiate it forth.
When we have truth, we radiate it forth.
When we have comfort, we radiate it forth.
When we have contentment, we radiate it forth.
We want a universe filled with all good things, arrayed to the right and to the left. We must seek goodness within ourselves, so that we can illuminate it; sustenance, sustainability, security, all are things that we can only illuminate as we are sustained, fed, stable.
You are a star.
You can only shine what you have.
