A message from Star Persons:
"Are you a star person? We are all star persons as we have all lived in many realities in many solar systems and in different realms as infinite lifeforms. A star person has little connection to the mainstream systems of society, religious, political or economic. Creativity is the key to spiritual fulfillment and mission. Our mission is simple and pure. We came to this planet to make you dance. Your planet is full of life and drenched in exotic energy. We are visitors in your mortal realm. We shall serve our purpose and then we will fade."
