The story of the star child that was left behind is the basis for the sequel book, You will see the little peak of the lavender hat on the left side.
But now, for us, we just look with our hearts at the picture and see a lovely uplifting fantasy. The deeper part of my consciousness sees this uplifting fantasy actually as a metaphor for truth – the inner reality of the Light taking us home – bringing us into the Heart of Oneness. That Light of Perfection needs our attention and responsiveness if it is to help us. If our attention is elsewhere, (usually always elsewhere), we cannot feel these very subtle hands of Light reaching down to us.
Below the illustration, is a poem attributed to Meister Eckhart, a German mystic from the 14th century….Let me seek you in the silence of my darkness and find You in the Silence of Your light / which is love shining like the sun…
Let me seek You which is
in the darkness love shining
of my silence like the sun
and find You flowing
in the Silence like the river
of Your light and joying like the heart
The above format is set by what I was able to do on my computer….it looks a little different in the book, Meister Eckhart’s Meditations of the Heart.
