PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, August 19th, 2014 by Stuart Wilde in THE LITTLE MONEY BIBLE

“Because celebrities have so many observers, they seem to exist in a well-defined particle state and thus give the illusion that they are more solid and secure than ordinary folk. They seem very real and larger than life, not in the usual hazy-wave state of other strangers. So they are seen by the millions as special glitzy particles. This helps ordinary people feel that their own energy is higher and safer – because they have bumped into a celeb’ a famoso of extreme particle wonderfulness.

It’s all a bit silly; it’s an illusion. Celebs are not more secure than you are; usually they are very insecure and neurotic – the ones I’ve met anyway. And, of course, no can permanently pick up your energy; you have to raise it yourself. Anyway, there is no high or low, is there? But the idea of importance and specialness excites people, and it sells newspapers and advertising, but it is not real, is it?

The trick is not to fall for all this specialness routine. It’s an ego-trip, and it burns load of energy. Trying to convince people that you are okay, or trying to get them to admire you and see you as special, wastes time. In the end, it will cost you money. Once you establish such a view with others, you’re a big shot and you have to pay for dinner!”

    Stuart Wilde, in “The Little Money Bible”
