Church of the Blue Star

Blue Star Church
Rev Mother Mary Elizabeth Thunder
West Point, Texas

        The Church of the Blue Star came forth from a Vision of Thunder and her Elders in 1988. At that time, a non profit entity called Blue Star Inc. was born in the State of Texas. At that same time, a Church was formed and sanctioned by the State of Texas called the Church of the Blue Star. Since 1988, the head of the Blue Star Church has been and continues to be Rev Mother Mary Elizabeth Thunder.    
        As Thunder has traveled, many Eastern Masters have called her a Bodhisattva. Specifically of late, Venerable Phra Ajahn Yantra Amaro, from Thailand, did a ceremony of recognition and honoring of Thunder in 2000. Sharing with all that Thunder had the ability to reach back into the past ~ past lives, and bring forth the good karma. He went on to say that all she recognized could attain the Bodhisattva existence in this life.
        Bodhisattva is a Buddhist term of one that has attained prajna or enlightenment but postpones nirvana in order to help others to attain enlightenment. Individual Bodhisattvas are the subjects of devotional in certain sects and are often represented in painting and sculpture. Bodhi means illumination and sattva means existence. A Bodhisattva prayer is...May all beings enjoy profound brilliant glory.
        Late in 1999, Thunder received a message from spirit to recognize people who have dedicated themselves to the spirits work, with Blue Star, by making them ministers of the Blue Star Church. In a beautiful candle lit ceremony in the Quan Yin Garden at the Thunder Ranch, Thunder, Chief Richard Grimes, and First Lady Starr Grimes, preformed the ceremonies.
        Blue Star Ministers are from all walks of life, all levels of experience, and all manner of expertise. Being spiritual at heart they are a rainbow of the wisdom energies at work! In March of 2004, others joined the original group making a total of
Ministers of the Blue Star Church in West Point Texas.
        Recognizing others for their good work as Ministers of the Church, she went on to challenge them to go further in this life, become better, as parents, as teachers, as artists, as  caretakers of the earth. 
        If you are a Minister, a teacher, you can contribute a lot in awakening people of the need for mindful consumption, because that is the way to real emancipation. If you are a journalist, you have the means to educate people, to wake people up to the nature of our situation.
        Thunder went on to say, that Masters have shared with her that everyone of us can transform himself or herself into a Bodhisattva doing the work of awakening. Because only awakening can help us to stop the course we are taking, the course of destruction. Then we will know in which direction we should go to make the earth a safe place for us, for our children, and for their children.
