"Ronald Reagan won America's respect with his greatness and won its love with his goodness.
He had the confidence that comes with conviction, the strength that comes with character,
the grace that comes with humility and the humor that comes with wisdom."

BUILDING A 5-STAR ZARATHUSHTI™

QS: How can one tell if this is a 4-Star or a 5-Star Hotel?
ANS: By the STARS you see when the BILL arrives.


Likewise, one has to invest in HUMANITY for building a 5-STAR PERSONALITY.

Now, I am a firm believer of the axiom:
"EVERYBODY is SOMEBODY because NOBODY is NOBODY."

That was one of the fundamental principles my wife and I used to fertilize the ground for raising our daughter Anahita.

When Anahita was a toddler, I asked myself the following:
"What makes ANAHITA a 5-STAR PERSON?"

The 5-STARS were and still are:
The Spirit of Unconditional Love and Forgiveness, with Honesty, Integrity, and Spirituality.

These were the FOUNDATIONAL STARS on which we started to BUILD a GALAXY of CHARACTER.

And to-date by the grace of Ahura Mazda, Anahita has lived-up to be the 5-STAR MODEL that she was molded to become for humanity.

I believe the same 5-STAR philosophy can be used to create 5-STAR PERSONALITIES in our COMMUNITIES.

At birth, everyone is endowed with the SEEDS OF GREATNESS.

All we need to do is just simply:
RECOGNIZE the STARS and not CRITICIZE the SCARS, in OTHERS.

All we need to do is:
ZOOM-IN CONSCIOUSNESS to ZOOM-OUT VICIOUSNESS.

And this will happen when use the 5-STAR ATTRIBUTES of
ZARATHUSHTRA'S PHILOSOPHY as described in the 5-GATHAS
(Sublime Songs), namely:

  • AHU-NA-VAD (Divine Manifestation)
  • OUSH-TA-VAD (Divine Bliss)
  • SEPAN-TA-MAD (Divine Progress)
  • VOHU-KHU-SHATR (Divine Power) and
  • VAHISH-TO-ESH (Divine Wealth)

to build a 5-STAR ZARATHUSHTI.

This will also happen when we put on the hat of Good Thoughts, Good Words, and Good Deeds so that we can find what we seek.

However, it is important to note that:

We must first BE what we want to SEE, to continue to SEE what we want to BE. (Ha Ha).

President Ronald Reagan on board Air Force One was once briefed:

"Mr. President, we were told that the Head of the country we are visiting next, is planning to put you down to bring himself up. But don't worry, since you are going to speak first, we will prepare a speech for you that would be so strong and bashful that they won't have a chance."

To which Reagan graciously responded:

"Oh NO. We are going to do the exact opposite. We will prepare a speech in which we will say so many nice things about them that they will be embarrassed to say any bad things about us."

This trait truly depicts the characteristic of a 5-STAR Zarathushti.

Using Good Thoughts, Good Words and Good Deeds to spread so much consciousness that there is no room for viciousness.

President Reagan also wisely said:

"A great leader is not the one who does great things
But the one who inspires others to do great things."

I like to rephrase this wisdom by stating that:

"A 5-STAR Zarathushti is not only the one who does great things
But also the one who inspires others to do great things."

President Reagan was also one of those exceptional human beings who after being shot, prayed first for the person who shot him, before he prayed for himself.

It was because he believed and lived the following philosophy:

"Never make an adversary into an enemy."

Something, that I find to be an exemplary icon of a 5-STAR Zarathushti.

A mother and daughter were washing dishes while the father and little Bobby were playing in the living room.

Suddenly they heard a crash of falling dishes. They listened.

"It was Mom," said Bobby.

"How do you know?" asked the father.

"Because," answered Bobby, "she isn't saying anything."

I believe that: "We must use words to communicate unless silence will speak better."

That I find to be a mark of a 5-STAR Zarathushti.

In "THE PROPHET" Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931) wrote:

"You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent
forth. The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far. Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness; For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable."

In other words:

"You are like a bow and your children like arrows, ejected in an endless direction. Let your bending to shoot the arrow be filled with joy and optimism."

I believe that in order to create a joyful future generation of 5-STAR
Zarathushtis, we need to be flexible but stable (like the bow) in our
thoughts, words and deeds.


FLEXIBILITY with STABILITY to cultivate NOBILITY in our thoughts,
words and deeds.

A person while toasting for his brother said:

"To the r in the brother - without it, you'd just be a bother."

I wonder if this "R" which isolates a BROTHER , stands for
"REVENGE."

A 5-STAR Zarathushti knows that even when two people are at different ends of the spectrum, they still both belong to the same spectrum.

It is the essence of this B-longing that culminates the longing for
BROTHERHOOD in humanity.

So, are we looking to be a BROTHER, or become a BOTHER?

Somehow, in life, whatever we are looking for is looking for us; and
whatever we focus on expands.

Especially, when one is focusing on the GALAXY of STARS.

The stronger the focus the greater number of stars one sees because the divine universe provides an unlimited reservoir of SHINING STARS for all of us to tap on.

The same theory works when one FOCUSES on the STARS in our fellow
human beings. It magically magnifies and multiplies.

But the question is: WHAT ARE WE FOCUSING ON?

HOLDING RELATIONSHIPS OR FOLDING RELATIONSHIPS...

CONSCIENCE or NONSENSE... SOLUTION or POLLUTION...

SHINING STARS or WHINING SCARS... HEALING OR PEELING...

SPREADING CONSCIOUSNESS OR SHREDDING VICIOUSNESS!


A girl while fasting during a Jewish holiday visited a doctor who ordered an urgent urinalysis.

The nurse gave her a container to collect a sample.

Since this girl had had no water for over 18-plus hours, she was unable to procure the desired sample.

So she went to the nurse and said:

"I'm sorry, today is my Jewish Holiday and I won't be able to go to the bathroom today"

To which the nurse responded with awe:

"Are you telling me that its against your religion to go to the bathroom today."

Sometimes, two people while looking at the SAME thing, see entirely a different picture.

But a 5-STAR Zarathushti recognizes that:

" When you cannot see someone else's POINT OF VIEW, look for the VIEW BEHIND THE POINT, and you will see something worthwhile
there."

It is the dimension of this consciousness that:
CREATES TRANSFORMATION & CREMATES DEFORMATION.

Having said that:

My wise grandmother used to tell me:

"Meher, when we judge others we don't define them, we define ourselves."

I found this valuable guidance to be applicable in both ways.

When we judge the good in others, we strengthen those attributes in ourselves, which eventually defines the quintessence of our being.

This simple philosophy can be used to build a 5-STAR ZARATHUSHTI in
our 5-STAR COMMUNITY.

We just need to start with 5-STAR QUALITIES and the DOMINO
PRINCIPLE will build the rest.

QUALITY building PERSONALITY & COMMUNITY in HUMANITY.

And by the way, it works more effectively when we work on it with the TRUTH OF LOVE instead of the LOVE OF TRUTH.

It is because I have found that:
With LOVE you are never ALONE
With TRUTH you may be on your OWN
(Ha Ha)

Furthermore, my life's experience has taught me that the ONE-STAR
which always shines the best is the STAR OF UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.

With that sentiment, I will leave you with the following image to reflect upon...

 

THE CORE OF OUR ZARATHUSHTI RELIGION IS ROOTED IN:

GOOD THOUGHTS, GOOD WORDS, & GOOD DEEDS.

LET US USE THAT VERY CORE TO BUILD THE FIBER OF OUR COMMUNITY

SO THAT WE CAN RAISE A GENERATION THAT WILL:

NOT ONLY FULFIL THE JOB OF A ZARATHUSHTI BUT ALSO THE ROLE OF A ZARATHUSHTI

AND AS YOU DO

MAY YOU FIND LOVE IN EVERY FIBER OF YOUR BEING
AND
RADIATE THAT LOVE IN THE FIBER OF EVERY OTHER BEING

May the

Light Of Valuable Energy
and the
Love In God's HeartToday

be with you and your family

. With Blessings of love and light always from Meher Amalsad
