Star poems were written as a meditation on the presence of God that is visible and tangible within the
star formations themselves. These images can reveal to the soul the Divine creative process that
originally gave birth to the stars - a process that has not ended, but that continues in the perpetual
unfoldment of new stars, nebulae, and galaxies within the infinite universe. To meditate upon the
stars, whether in images or directly, is to know and feel the holy Presence of God that is everywhere.
When we can leave the place of being ‘in front of’ the stars as an observer looking at something
beautiful – a picture within a frame – and find ourselves ‘within’ them as part of their own life
and experience, this is the place where encountering Divine being and life becomes possible. -- Julie Redstone
