Star of David

Where there is desire 
there is gonna be a flame.
Where there is a flame
someone's bound to get burned.
But just because it burns
doesn't mean you're gonna die.
You've gotta get up and try, and try, and try.
(Try, Pink)

The Star of David is the union of a triangle with the same triangle turned upside down. This image is the union of the pointed male energy with the receiving female energy. It is a symbol of wholeness like the symbol of yin and yang in Taoism. Isn't that how life dances with us? Our desires - whether consciously or subconsciously expressed - meet the world that confronts us with its energies. We have learned the hard way that when we run after our desires we receive gratifications at times, and get disappointed on less fortunate occasions.

The promise of the CREATOR is that life can be a Garden of Eden; the door hasn't been locked so we can always go back. The trick is to find the spiritual upside in any situation. The Star of David takes our pointed desire and wraps life around us, receives our energy and transmutes it in this holy union. The only requirement is that we know what our desires are, and that we are flexible enough to to adjust our energies to life's dance moment by moment. Sometimes life leads, and sometimes we do, just feeling our way in sync with the music.

For us spiritual travelers repression is sometimes the problem. We tend to have our heads in the clouds searching for peace, love and happiness, not knowing that we are driven by subconscious motives that we consider too ugly to look at. Life is here to show us what truly matters to us. The so-called temptations are here not to torture us, but to show us what makes our heart jump. Once we know what we want to express, life then rushes to our side to help us express what is meaningful to us in a spiritually kosher way.

Let the Star of David inspire us. For every situation a creative solution is waiting for us, ready to be expressed. And if from time to time we fail to hear GOD's music and get blind-sided by our longings, so be it. So what if we burn our fingers a little, we can always follow Pink's advice and get up and try, try, try.
