Star Polishing 101

by Carol Hess on October 31, 2012

If there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s that you are a star.  You were born a star, and you will die a star.  It is who you are – your divine identity.  And nobody can change that – including you! But what you can change is how brightly or dimly your star shines.  […]
