– «Why did you ask me if I know my name?» asked the little star that didn’t quite understand.
– «To see if you remember who you are».
– «What do you mean?If you fall you forget who you are?»
– «When you fall, you may remember who you are».
– «Do I need to remember who I am? Don’t I know?»
– «You know that you are who you were told that you are. A star full of light. A star with a glow that dances and embroiders along with other stars the carpet of the Sky. A star that laughs and enjoys its dance along with its friends»
– «That’s exactly who I am!»
– «Here, on Earth, if you ask, what a star is, some will tell you that you are a thick cloud of gas and dust, mostly hydrogen and helium. Others will say that you are part of a comet, a big, old star that died a long time ago. Others will tell you that you look like the starfish of the sea. Others will say that you remind them of the top of a Christmas tree. And others will compare you to the light of an airplane flying at night.
You can’t imagine how many different things you are to everyone»
– «But I’m only a star!»
– «You are more than a star.No matter what you told that you are, or what you remind them of . Or what they think you are. What matters is who you really are, for yourself, since for everybody else you are something different.»
Both friends laughed.
When a star and a lemon smile, a Light is being turned on in the House of God.
If one day you see a bright Light around, know this:
a human’s wish has been granted,
a shooting star has fallen and got caught on the branches of the Tree of Wishes,
a lemon blossom has turned into a Lemon
and a lemon is playing with a star the game of the 3 voices: Truth, Dare and Compassion.
