What do stars do? They change. First they are born, taking matter from here and there. OK, I vast here and there. Then they die. Once a star is fully functioning, it begins to use up its energy. It is letting go of itself. It is dying. Every star I can see in the sky is dying, giving up of itself, so that I can have this magnificent view, and see the face of God. I am part of this same cosmos. If I am going to be true to who and what I am, then I must let go. Stop hoarding and trying for "More." To be fully me in this creation, I must be letting go, dying to self, so that others can see the beauty that is me. The miser, Mr. Scrooge, was a pretty ugly and mean guy when he was hoarding. Then he became like a star, shining as light for all. Be a star! Or as they sang in the movie, "Frozen," "Let it go!"
