Catch a Falling Star: How We Captured the Impossible

catch a falling star1

I hadn’t thought about the story in years but it kept calling to me so I looked in my files to find it.

It was a children’s play I had written back in 1994 when I was still in the classroom. Oh, I was quite famous for my school plays in those days! But I would always tell my husband it wasn’t me writing. I later understood it was a higher part of me doing so.  

The story takes place in a far away land where polka dots and stripes live. They don’t get along as the stripes have lines that go up and down and the polka dots have lines that go round and round. The children aren’t allowed to play with each other so they make a wish upon a star that this will change. The white star tells them they must find a brighter Light to fulfill their wish as her Light isn’t strong enough. 

The children go on a journey throughout the galaxy looking for a Light bright enough but to no avail. When they come back to the star discouraged, she tells them she used her Light to help them fly throughout the galaxy.  Now her light is so dim, she is falling from the sky. 

The children plead with the adults to help them save the star but no one will. Finally one comes forward, then another and another and the rest  join. The polka dots and stripes use their circles and lines to build a ladder to the sky to save the star. 

As I re-read the story, I realized that the stripes and polka dots also represent the masculine and feminine parts of ourselves. When they are not in balance working together, we are in conflict within ourselves and our Light is dimmed. 

With the holiday of Passover around the corner, the story of Moses leading the Hebrew slaves to freedom also has a deeper meaning. Pharaoh in Hebrew refers to the ego.  Egypt is the restricted place where we are enslaved to our ego. The journey to freedom with Moses leads us to unity consciousness within ourselves and with others. 

The teachings have always been there. What is without is a reflection of what is within. As each of us makes the shift to align with our Divine Self, our Light truly shines bright and affects all around us. Yet when I see the state of our world, I sometimes wonder if we are really making a difference. Then I am called back with a story written 30 years ago. 

At the end of  “Catch a Falling Star,” the children thank the white star that her Light was bright enough to make their wish come true.

The white star replies: “Oh no, my friends. The Light you see shining so bright is the Light inside of you.

For when you work together as sisters and brothers, no matter your design or color, you shine a Light so bright, it shines in the day and shines in the night.

It is the Light of sharing, it is the Light of caring, it is the Light of Love.“

May we all find our Light that shines so bright! 

Love, Lee
