STAR AND THE DUST is a compendium of poems written by Satya where she also includes her simple illustrations in relation to some of these poems (no, she is neither a painter nor an illustrator, she just didn’t know how to ask who for illustrating her book). The poetries in this book reflect how Satya perceives this journey we call life, in this planet we call Earth, in this physical manifestation we call human. They were written in the moments of inspiration and expansion, with her all senses wide open.
Of 45 poetries, six are originally written in Bahasa Indonesia. Satya didn’t feel to translate them because she thinks translation might change the meaning, both literally and ethereally. So she decided to leave them that way, and would be happy to share its meanings in English to non-Bahasa Indonesia speakers if asked.
This is a self-published book, and when it is said self-published it means there is no publishing company involved, including the “self-publishing” company. For IDR 54,000, you will get a copy of Star and The Dust in A5 size with a total of 75 pages.

“the galaxies above you
the shells scattered in the sand
hold the pattern of life, of mystery
through whirling dust, smoke, fire
everything unfolds naturally”
“in your constellation i was born, and dead, and reborn, and dead again, and reborn again”
“if i’m not your dust, Star, then what am i?”
Satya uses tarot and oracle cards as tools to guide and heal others, in which meditation is incorporated to help her get centered and align with her higher self. Satya is also passionate about flower and plant healing with trainings in Bach Flower Remedies. She is the author of self-published book "Star and The Dust", a compendium of poetries exploring wisdom from earth and wisdom from stars and how to bridge both.
Satya loves mathematics and science, also esoteric and metaphysical things. She loves gazing upon the stars, also walking in a garden full of flowers. She loves working with numbers, also with words. Besides growing House of Prajna with her husband, Jati, she is currently pursuing her PhD in Operations Research at North Carolina State University in the USA. Satya believes that science and spirituality are a “twin flame”; to her, both of them speak the same thing with just different languages.
