|We can only imagine the billions of human eyes that have gazed upwards into the night sky since the beginning of time – astounded by the stars glistening there. These nova storms have served as guiding lights for celestial navigation and beacons showing us the way to world changing events. The calendars we use to count off our days are based upon their movement across the sky. We wish upon them and dream incredible dreams looking at them – and feel hope that there is more to this earthly life than we know.
We use the star in this context to remind us to look up in hope. It is impossible to count the stars – just as it is impossible to count the billions of healthy cells hard at work in our bodies right now. Unseen – like the invisible stars during daylight – they are all quietly working away in the magic language that only our bodies speak. They whisper: “Get well. Get well. We are getting well with every breath.”
