I love children’s nursery rhymes because it is playful, fun and the innocence of being child-like again materializes. It is a time that nothing matters….how you sing it, how many times you sing the verses, pitch differences-it is just so.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
“Twinkle, twinkle little star” would always brighten the day. I remember it putting a smile on my granddaughters’ face. This is the song I would sing (or at least try to hum the tune) to put her to sleep. Maybe it was boring? Never thought of that…the result truly was the sleep was with tranquility.
Realistically, it is about the light. The twinkle from the light emanates from above. Imagine that this connection to the light began at infancy on a conscious level. It shines so pure and with an enormous feeling of satisfaction.
The second verse asks: “How I wonder what you are?” Our association to our light family soothes our soul. We are astonished when we are in the light. We become conscious as we look above us to reunite with oneness. This also applies to meditation or prayer. It is the harmony within beautiful music.
The amazing result that we seek is being the diamond in the sky! Each one of us is a facet of all that exists. You shine like a diamond as the radiant light that is within you. Take notice of your brilliance within you and be the twinkle amongst a magnanimous essence of light.
