I was cruising through the WDC galaxy today and found a shiny star that I've never seen before. Annie
There are 18 stars circling this star. One of those stars is
"Morning is my favorite time of day......."
What is your favorite part of the day and why?
Through the windows of morning
The windows of morning
open onto a new day
before beginning my morning routine
I pause to pray.

Today cruising during a stop for some R&R we went to a starbase. The roster said that a star has been sending pulses into the WDC so we found the star making such a big splash with reviews was Lisa Noe Kittyluv um Puppyluv . We found many planets circling this star. One planet was
On that planet, a native said, "I can't believe this is happening on my birthday."
The captain decided to throw a birthday party on board. Odd things happen on birthdays. What birthday do you remember best?
My birthday memories are a mixture

I was cruising the WDC galaxy today and it occurred to me that there are stars who shine their light on other stars by doing a ton of reviews. I decided to check out today's number one reviewer Brian K Compton and I found the star shining bright. Circling that star were several planets so we took a landing team to planet and found this:
"Make the most of each moment...before it's gone".
How do you make the most of each moment?
Also please give this author some reviews.

You end the day with prayer and meditation,
reflecting on how you can make
tomorrow better than today.

Cruising through the WDC I found a star I haven't seen before. The star is Jenn Webster .
On the port
she asks "But for right now, I would very much like to know: Which symbol of hope would very best represent the calendar year of 2021, in which we hope would be a Year of Hope?"
Well, what do you think?
I picked Ocean waves, because the ocean is the symbol of both spiritual and physical life. I see, the ocean as a symbol of spiritual life, because God's word--which gives life the the human soul--is like an ocean that conceals within its depths pearls of wisdom. In order to find and understand these pearls, we my dive deep into the sacred books and meditate upon their contents. The ocean is a symbol for physical life, because all life on Earth began in the ocean and eventually evolved into the various forms we see today. I also, see the ocean as a symbol of the unity of religion and science, because both are gifts to humanity form the All-Glorious Creator.
The Dove is also a two-fold symbol. First, it is the symbol of peace, and, second, it is a symbol of the Holy Spirit. It is a symbol of the Holy Spirit, because that is the form the Holy Spirit took when it settled onto His Holiness Christ. I didn't pick the dove as the symbol of 2021, because--while I do believe a political peace will be negotiated the twenty-first century--the nations of Earth aren't ready to begin negotiating world peace just yet. Humanity and the nations of Earth still have a ways to go before being willing to admit we are dependent upon each other for peace and good will.
The Sunflower is a symbol of hope, because--like the souls of the faithful and seekers--it turns toward the sun. It doesn't matter to the sunflower the location of the sun in the sky, or which direction it rises from the flower will always turn toward the sun. The souls of God's lovers are like this, they don't care which direction God's light is coming from because they can detect the light and turn toward it.
Yellow & Blue
The color yellow5 symbolizes hope, happiness and the sunshine. The color blue symbolizes both the sea and sky, as well as "open spaces, freedom, intuition, imagination, expansiveness, inspiration, and sensitivity."6
The Butterfly is the symbol of the human soul, because--living in association with the human body--the soul acquires the virtues it needs to thrive in the spiritual world.

Why should we never love a poet?
Fall in Love With a Poet
Fall in love with a poet,
not the poet's physical form,
but the poet's soul.

the poet's soul will reflect
in stanza and line,
and in metaphor and simile

Sometimes truth can only be sung. Use this in your Blog entry today.
Truth that Penetrates the Human Soul
Truth that is sung, chanted, or intoned has a better chance of penetrating a person's mind and ascending into their soul. Once the truth enters the soul it will cause an emotional reaction, such as awe, which will bring tears to the eyes. This is why a professional singer, with a trained voice, cause the audience to stand and applaud. This is also the reason that the revealed prayers should be intoned, because speaking them aloud--even if its only in a whisper--causes the message of the Holy Spirit to enter a person's soul and transform them.
"Intone, O My servant, the verses of God
that have been received by thee,
as intoned by them who have drawn
nigh unto Him,
that the sweetness of thy melody
may kindle thine own soul,
and attract the hearts of all men.
Whoso reciteth, in the privacy of his chamber,
the verses revealed by God,
the scattering angels of the Almighty
shall scatter abroad the fragrance
of the words uttered by his mouth,
and shall cause the heart
of every righteous man to throb.
Though he may, at first, remain unaware
of its effect, yet the virtue
of the grace vouchsafed unto him
must needs sooner or later exercise
its influence upon his soul.
Thus have the mysteries of the Revelation
of God been decreed
by virtue of the Will of Him
Who is the Source of power and wisdom."
Intone "to say something slowly and seriously in a voice that does not rise or fall much".10 I have found, that when I intone the verses revealed by Baha'u'llah, The Bab, or 'Abdu'l-Baha I can reel the presence of the Holy Spirit. I also feel the presence of the Holy Spirit when I read Psalms 23 or The Lord's Prayer aloud.

The star we found while cruising the WDC galaxy today is multitalented. She is not only a writer, but a performer as well. Brandiwyn🎶
The song says "It's so easy to talk to you
It's so easy to share everything with you"
Besides a spouse, do you have anybody in your life who is easy to talk to? Tell us about them.
Passion, lust, and romance are easy, love is a little more difficult. Love takes more work, which is one of the problems with love at first sight. I believe in lust at first sight, but not love. I believe a person can have a soulmate; however, it takes a couple to work on their relationship before they can claim to be soulmates. Love isn't easy. Love takes work. Romance is nice, but it takes work and cooperation from to people to make a relationship.

The poem begs the question. Have you ever had a broken heart? Tell us about it.
Have I ever had a broken heart? Yes! My broken heart inspired most or all of my bitter love poems. Here are some examples "Love Lesson" [ASR], "Love is a Many Splintered Thing" [18+], and "Thank You Note To An Old Lover" [13+]. There is nothing like a broken heart inspiration, because writing about the experience eventually allows the person to let go.

"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
Matthew 5:16 KJV
Let the light of your soul
shine out across the planet,
so that the unique talents
God has blessed you with
can reveal your love
for both the Creator
and His Creation.
"Be generous in prosperity, and thankful in adversity. Be worthy of the trust of thy neighbor, and look upon him with a bright and friendly face. Be a treasure to the poor, an admonisher to the rich, an answerer of the cry of the needy, a preserver of the sanctity of thy pledge. Be fair in thy judgment, and guarded in thy speech. Be unjust to no man, and show all meekness to all men. Be as a lamp unto them that walk in darkness, a joy to the sorrowful, a sea for the thirsty, a haven for the distressed, an upholder and defender of the victim of oppression. Let integrity and uprightness distinguish all thine acts. Be a home for the stranger, a balm to the suffering, a tower of strength for the fugitive. Be eyes to the blind, and a guiding light unto the feet of the erring. Be an ornament to the countenance of truth, a crown to the brow of fidelity, a pillar of the temple of righteousness, a breath of life to the body of mankind, an ensign of the hosts of justice, a luminary above the horizon of virtue, a dew to the soil of the human heart, an ark on the ocean of knowledge, a sun in the heaven of bounty, a gem on the diadem of wisdom, a shining light in the firmament of thy generation, a fruit upon the tree of humility."

The author asked how could life had been different if we had made different choices?
I've had a few regrets,
If I had chosen another path,
I would have a different life today,
and I would be a different person.
Would that life be better or worse?
Would that person be recognizable?

Secrets that you can share support that lasts a life time. Write about this in your Blog entry today.
School friendship were a long time ago, in a galaxy faraway. At least, it seems that way to now, especially since I reconnected with some of them on Facebook. I friended some of them on Facebook; however, today they seem more like acquaintances--people I met growing up, but never really knew. The people I consider friends today are the Baha'is I've met, both in person and online, and the people I've met on writing.com. These are the people I feel I could share secrets with, if there were any secrets I really wanted to share.
I've never been a person to share secrets with anyone. Maybe it was because of my upbringing or, perhaps, there's another reason. A reason hidden in my subconscious that I'm not ready or don't want to deal with. I'll figure out which one it is eventually, but in the meantime I'll share my secrets with Baha'u'llah.
My Best Friend
Baha'u'llah is my best friend
Is it any wonder I stand by Him?
My faith is based on God's revealed word;
Best source of world peace and unity.
Friend, do you comprehend?

On the first Friday in September 2020 this line, "You can do anything if you but try be like the eagle, set your thoughts high."17 reminds me of of a dream I had about a sparrow that wanted to be an eagle. In the dream, the sparrow, flying toward the sun, ascended into the sky where--after several attempt and numerous prayers--it was eventually transformed into an eagle.
We are sparrows--
striving to be eagles--
we fly toward the sun of faith
singing songs of unity
and proclaiming our gratitude

The planet had life that asked "What would life be like without beautiful dreams?"
What would it be like?
but not everybody
remembers their dreams.
Remembered dreams are special,
help us deal with life's lessons,
give us ideas for stories and poems,
guide us on our spiritual journey,
or foretell the future.
Whatever the meaning of the dream

if we just ask.

I'm running a little behind this morning. I woke up not feeling great. So I laid in a little longer than usual.
Cruising through the universe in my hypersleep tank I found the star rwuth. On the plane:
there was a line "Who am I?"
So tell us. Who are you?
Who Am I? Is a question I've answered several times before in different poems. The more I contemplate this question the more answers I find and the more questions I have. I am including two previously written poem "Who Am I and Maker of Cloth" here. I know if I look in my port or in one of my other blogs, I'll find more poems on this subject. I also know that I will continue to write more poems on this subject.
Who Am I?
Who dwells in this body
created by the conjunction of sperm and egg?
Am I only a composition of nature?
these atoms in love with themselves?
Does a soul give my body life?
Creation of God or composition of nature?
Why can't this answer be both?
Maker of Cloth:
On the loom of existence,
I weave the pattern of my life.
On the loom of verse,
I wave the pattern of my thoughts.
On the loom of actions,
I weave the pattern of my faith.
