THE HAZARD of FORGETTING YOURSELF and ADMIRING OTHERS.
There is a strong TEMPTATION in all of us to WORSHIP or DEIFY beauties or hunks, talented singers, musicians, performers. There is a tendency in an artist (who is can create works of beauty).....to want to admire their favorite artists or performers all the time. They are FANS. We knew this type during our school days. They craved to be chums with the "Popular kids" who usually only hang with others of their kind. They shun kids who don't fit the magazine mold. If you did that in school and Bill Gates came along, you'd run! If Billy Wilder wanted to be your friend with his bulgy, half blind eyes and saucy x-rated mouth, you'd RUN! A young Hitchcock with his paunch, his dry insults, EEEK lemme outta here!
Great souls shouldn't worship beauty or deify celebs. We can enjoy the work of the avtars who come to earth who create like Gods and act like GODS, Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Cesar Chavez, Mandela, Hitchcock, Gates and Wilder but without losing our stride and forgetting to be that focused and creative ourselves.
We can go see the beauteous celeb's flicks as hey, it's a vitamin for the tantric energy... makes our kundalini surge. Say you're in love with Brad Pitt. Say you dream of him nightly. Say you clip out his photos, see all his films. WHAT TIME do you have to become a great actor? You are hooked on a big time waster, celeb worship. It's on TILT, out of balance. Great souls see everyone they meet on a daily basis as being as charming and wonderful and having something to offer ---but you only see Brad Pitt as being someone you'd want to listen to.
INSIDE of whoever that person is that you meet in the next hour, might be hiding THE NEXT MANDELA. If you aren't hooked on BRAD PITT-ITIS, you would listen more carefully to him and suddenly see this person at hand as being a spark off the big God candle. IF YOU listened, learned you could advance a few steps. But turn away from the little God sparks around you right now and everybody loses.
So shun addictions to outward appearances. Train your eye to see into others' eyes, your inner ear to listen to people's thoughts/ words. TRAIN your mind to seek the real GODS in daily life. Do not encourage your mind in its predilection for the blonde current reigning god of film because then, the devil has your address. He can send you an axe murderer boyfriend who looks just like Brad Pitt and you'll swallow the hook and end up blackbagged in a trash dumpster. SO DISCOURAGE this obsession for celebs.
ALSO, if you only see Brad Pitt as the top of the mountain everyone else is the pits. ABRAHAM LINCOLN would be ignored by you! Gandhi, a sweaty brown peon. Bill Gates a weirdo four-eyes nerd. Nobody ..no matter how fine, could make a hit with you! NOBODY else can be as royal as Brad. HEY that is the definition of an addiction, when only chocolate works and spinach salad is a total yuk.
Let this BRAD PITT fascination continue, you are addicted to your vision your thrill. AND all that isn't your chocolate thrill yummy is crap. So we gotta wrestle with the mind and unaddict ourselves and see the noble qualities of God in all. Of course only until they pull a knife.....EVERYBODY is chocolate ice cream. The old woman on the bus stop, talk to her, she's GRETA #*%& GARBO! THAT OLD man, UNSUSPECTED DEPTHS. When we GIVE up a habit of childhood, pluck it like a weed, God can plant wonderful things in its place. There is space in our mind for learning from new and valuable people. Learning to open to new hobbies, passions, interests -- space for something delicious and fine.
When we weed our mental garden, work AGAINST habit, we come alive. Unfettered worship for a celebrity is a chemical dependency. If we make that celebrity a magnetic NORTH for our soul's compass, we distort our own life's geography. Because one day we will be a celebrity and our head will be wobbly on our shoulders. Stay unflappable. Stay unimpressed with trivial, banal outward forms. Stay neutral. Don't make BRAD PITT THE ONLY ONE! Cuz you know what? the form changes!
My beauty is already beginning to fade. The real
me is showing through! Ain't life a bitch? Don't
let this happen to you. Stop being interested in
famous people. None of what you THINK we have
will rub off on you. Enjoying us, when we're
basically just 'models' is draining and nuts.
So, are we agreed? It's time to be a great soul, to 'forward the action' on the planet and not waste time, ergo show up as deep and interesting. How do we do it?
1.) QUIT thinking about movie stars! Great souls don't deify celebs. DEIFY men who come to earth who act like
GODS, gandhi, MLK, Mandela. You CAN read up on THE GREAT HEROES though -- activists and leaders who risked death to 'forward the action' as THAT admiration DOES rub off!
We can go see the celeb's flicks as hey, it's a vitamin for the tantric energy... makes our kundalini surge. But don't go out of the theatre with that person in your aura or thoughts. Switch to Gandhi and rent his bio film for home viewing. Or rent "SILKWOOD" with Streep. Or Places in the Heart or Norma Rae with Sally.
You have a problem if you're in love with Brad Pitt and surf websites to read of him and Angie and dream of him nightly. You're really a goner if you scan mags to see if he's in them or clip out his photos. You glue them on the wall, then you pay huge sums you should be donating to Feed Ethiopia just so you can see his films. Great souls see everyone they met as Brad Pitt INSIDE of whoever that person is, all of us being God. TRAIN your mind that way. Do not encourage your mind in its prediclection for the blonde current reigning god of film. DISENCOURAGE IT.
ALSO, if you only see Brad Pitt as the top of the mountain everyone else is the pits. Nobody makes it. NOBODY else can be royal. so rightaway we are addicted to our vision our thrill. AND all that isn't our chocolate thrill yummie is crap. so we gotta unaddict ourself and see the noble qualities of god in all. of course until they pull a knife..... EVERYBODY is chocolate ice cream. The old woman on the bus stop, talk to her, she's GRETA #*%& GARBO!
THAT OLD man, UNSUSPECTED DEPTHS. When we GIVE up a habit of childhood, pluck it like a weed, God can plant wonderful things in its place. There is space in our mind, passions, interests for something delicious and fine. Something that can help thousands if not millions of people.
When we weed our mental garden, work AGAINST habit, we come alive. A celeb is a chemical dependency. If we make that celeb magnetic NORTH for our soul's compass, we distort our own life's geography and the planet itself stays in crisis. Stay neutral on celeb worship, switch the habit to heroes, join them in forwarding the action.
POME for a girl who likes Rock Stars
Watch the childlike tendency
to be mesmerized by baubles
Rockstars and celebrities
