Quality Star Power
In the fast hurly-whirly world of media obsessions, fame, outwardly, is the jewel in the crown. Getting crowned as a pop idol princess, or a mega movie icon prince,is no easy task without an entourage of publicity and public relations agents. Not to mention all the lawyers and their ilk. Image creation is the bewitching sorcery the professional spin doctors swirl and twirl with amazing results.
Many times an actor, or singer is swept off their feet by the media machine and before they know it...Hey Presto! they are a success in the eyes of the public. Gone is their anonymity and all seems glamour and glitter.
A few "mega stars" do manage to keep their ego's in check and don't take success too seriously. However; they are few and far between. As we all know, history teaches us that becoming rich and famous can have devastating consequences.
Without a firm foundation and an authentic self reflection of ones own true nature, the successful performer becomes a pawn in the moldable tinsel, media mechanism game. It becomes a game of grab all you can and manipulate the star for all they are worth. They become the goose that is laying their golden eggs and nothing else gets in the way of the promotional machine.
Thankfully for the average person, they are not going to suffer the slings and arrows of lamentable stardom, for all that glitters is not gold. Nevertheless, most people can still exist as a star performer in the game of life.
Let us take the game of golf as an example of how life can take on true meaning. If we could program a golf ball with a micro chip and every time the ball was struck off the tee, the ball would travel the whole distance of the fairway, run onto the green and into the cup. That would make golf a useless game, because everyone would win.
In every tournament there has to be a winner. All the golfers play the same course, yet there is always one who finds a pathway to success...why? When a golfer has been playing all his life what happens on that special day he becomes a winner? Is it just by chance. Is it a lucky day, or is there some other force at work? If there is an invisible force at work, can it be harnessed and implemented all the time?
Well, it would be of no benefit if a magical force nominated everyone top dog in every contest, job or lottery, because we would all be akin to the programed ball I was just pointing out. The fact of the matter is, the man made games we play are of no real significance. Winning or losing has no real meaning in the big picture. Fame and fortune, once achieved, will sooner or later evaporate its gilded, sugar coated lining.
Every human has unique qualities. They all perceive and interpret things differently. However; there is an invisible, intrinsic force that can provide every human being with the ability to enjoy their life...so there is a magic ball after all. But this magic ball does not make physical winners, it makes intangible masters that overcome all traps, hazards and obstacles put in their path to spoil a scratch score of a carefree, sprightly life.
The magic ball cannot be purchased or bartered. No spin doctor or public relations firm can conjure up its image. No film stars status can produce or direct its course. No pop idol concept can fashion its orchestration. No religion is required to project its authenticity. No science is needed to radiate its truths. For this magic ball is not of human kind...but it does reside in human nature.
The authentic make up of human nature discharges an energy that is serene and kindly. It is filled with love and joy. It is powerful and complete. It is consummated by an unceasing spirit. It knows it is a glittering universal star who's light beams across the universe. It needs no approval of any man made doctrine or dogma. It is the inheritance of all human beings, nestled away in every atom, cell and molecule.
You are invited to explore your magical ball and dance with a flavor to savor. Miraculously, you will discover.... You have; one hundred, billion neurons that are your biggest fans. They are keen to light up and applaud your positive, meaningful actions. You have; seven billion cells that pays you homage. They exist to glorify your good deeds. You live with Q-S-P... Quality Star Power....You are "Well - To - Do" Now Go Forth and Do Well........ For Humanity!
"Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting; The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star, Hath had elsewhere its setting. And cometh from afar." - William Wordsworth
