What is a Five Star Human?

There are many ways to look at the idea of a Five Star Human. But it is never a judgement, or a ranking in competition with others.

It is both a challenge… and a promise.

I believe that you are already a Five Star Human. You probably just don’t know it yet. What you already are is so incredible that it’s difficult to put into words. It’s just been buried under a lot of junk, such as old beliefs, emotional blocks and pain, cultural conditioning, and family concepts. The way I look at it– based on what we are capable of becoming– we are ALL a bunch of underachievers. 🙂 But we are in good company, because very few on this planet realize the nature of their true selves.

I believe that Five Star Humans are reaching for and evolving into higher levels of consciousness. We are developing internally. We are daily discovering the difference between the False Self and the True Self. We are learning how to live from the essence of what WE ARE. It’s like a treasure hunt, an inner adventure, and the great prize is discovering your beautiful, peaceful, powerful, authentic, loving Self and then you live your life as YOU (which is surprisinly rare).

We all need help with this, whether through self-seeking, book study, finding a teacher to help guide us, or the right kind of therapy.

We are physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual beings. All four are critical to our wholeness. If we are neglecting any part, then we are probably struggling in some way. To cut off one aspect is to amputate a part of ourselves and then wonder why we feel like something is missing.

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

If we are suffering, then we are confused about who we are and the nature of Mind and Being.

The great news is that it is never too late to end the suffering… and we can begin again and again and again.

There is no question of what you deserve. Your past doesn’t define you. However, the past does tend to repeat until healed. Your sense of self, right now, in this moment, creates your reality. If you don’t like what’s happening, you have the power to transform it.

True, no one ever told us this or taught us HOW. But now we get to take charge, and there are SO many teachers and guides and helpers available to us. We’re here to help each other remember.

So we bond together, we help each other, and we learn how to create the world we want. We each get an equal vote in the universe!

How Do I Start?

You start on yourself. You take the steps to heal and grow. You don’t need anyone else in your life to participate. No matter how much others seem to blame, you can shift your entire world from the inside out.

‘You must rise to a desired state of consciousness (it cannot rise to you).’ – Neville

When you come home to your true heart,
you will become one human being
who stops bothering the world.
Because all are molesting the world
with their thoughts, judgments, and 
You have stopped.
You have come off the wheel of samsara.
You cease to know anything.
Something is switched off
but mystically still on— beautiful.
