"We promise to... Love as our Divine Spirit loves; freely, purely, instinctively, abundantly; to Love as we have been loved – richly, with grand enthusiasm and without hesitation.” ~ MorningStar Community Guiding Principle
MorningStar Community is a people and place that honors the Simple and Sacred through Instinctual Living. In all aspects of our world and our lives we seek to honor and be guided by the wisdom of the simple and the sacred…
We live consciously with the Sacred and Simple in order to create a more peace-filled planet; both within ourselves individually and within our community, collectively. This carries with us in our presence in the wider community of our world’s people – wherever we might travel, shop, study, work, play, pray or worship.
Our philosophy of preserving the simple and sacred through instinctual living in all aspects of our life guides us privately, personally and individually as we seek to heal wounds of the past, make healthy choices for the present and vision possibilities for reaching our fullest potentials in the future.
Our vision and philosophy also guide us in our mission work. We give a bit more of who we are and a bit more of our wealth; investing our time, money, energy, love and vision in being a part of what makes the world a gentler, more lovely place for all – especially the most vulnerable, weak, young, old, lonely, alone, sick or scared.
So the philosophy takes life and form on the Holyland and in the lives of the community’s peoples wherever they live – in simple actions such as slowing down on a gravel road to allow the passage of a woodland turtle who must make its way across a manmade path through his homeland, or by donating service time with our mission work in Mexico.
Whether the political becomes the personal or the personal is political, our community goes beyond debate and into living. We concern ourselves with the application of the Simple and Sacred, using it as our practical guide. When complexity leaves us feeling confused, we return to the concept of the Sacred and Simple and strive to make elementary decisions based on instinct, intuition, and role modeling of wise elders when possible. We acknowledge that each individual or collective who must live intimately with the results of a decision are the ones with the inherent right and responsibility to use their intelligence and instinct in making decisions.
The wisdom of all major world religions speaks to these basic principles… of non-violence and of Loving Kindness to all living beings. With lasting and personal experience we encourage and support the following practices:
