I won’t waste your time reading empty introductions, like most articles do to you!
So here are the steps you need to make in order to become a successful fitness instructor (mainly group fitness) if you are living in a country like mine, Jordan!
Step 1 Forget Everything Before Step 1!
Forget everything you know and you’ve learned before this article. Because whatever you know and whatever you are doing in order to be successful is just a waste of time.
Step 2 Kiss Ass!
The time has come for you to kiss ass, if you don’t know how, you need to start learning. The easiest way to learn is by watching your colleagues kissing ass to the manager or anyone in charge for the schedule and hiring instructors.
If you already know how to kiss ass everything is good, maybe you just need to take it to the next level; which is licking ass. Go ahead! Don’t waste your time! Only ass kisser and lickers are on the top of the pyramid.
Kissing ass can be by roaming around the manager and compliment them, buy them gifts for a reason or without, act like you care when they are not feeling well, take their side when they are clashing with someone else, etc.
Step 3 Clown Around!
If you take yourself seriously and your job seriously, you are a serious lame asshole! You need to loosen up, be a clown, let people laugh at you, entertain the crowds, entertain the folks. Forget that you are there to make people fit, from now on you are there to entertain people, you are a new clown on some stage!
Step 4 Bluff, Bullshit & Lie!
Let’s say you are teaching a program like Zumba, since it’s the silliest form of fitness I can think of, don’t forget to bluff and bullshit people about how many calories they are going to burn in your class! Your goal is to attract people to come to your class, your target is to have a full class to have a full payment, right? Don’t forget to lie to them and tell them they are going to burn a thousand calorie today! In an hour! In just an hour!
Your integrity doesn’t mean anything to anyone, as long as you can believe your own lies then you are perfectly credible!
Step 5 Be Twisted!
Never ever be honest! Never ever be straight forward & never ever help others for the sake of helping them. You need to be twisted, that’s’ the only way people get it right! Never ever show your real you, no one is going to like that, no one is ever going to appreciate that and no one ever is going to let that happen. Be twisted, make deals under the table, cook stuff in the backyard, stab your colleagues in the back but never in the open nor in public!
Step 6 Be Real! Figure, Shape, Charisma, Fitness, Coaching and Technique Are Secondary!
Yes! Believe it or not! Your prefect technique, understandable coaching, pumped muscles, sexy flat abs, awesome gluts, shinning charisma and all that don’t freaking matter! if you are a fitness instructor in a country like mine, don’t work hard to be whatever I’ve mentioned before, work hard to do the five previous steps! Even if you are chubby, obese or not even fit, and you need a lot of water breaks in the middle of the class, even if your personality sucks, even if you can barely jump on the spot it doesn’t matter as long as you are following the steps mentioned before!
Happy Group Exercise Instructors Life, To Everyone!
Online chatting and texting are awesome things, they can make life easier, more informative and faster to connect. People who hate/dislike phone calls, like me, prefer texting for sure.
But I’m not writing this post to tell you how awesome that is, I mean that would be lame and boring, I should criticize something, and make things look a little ugly, and spray some irony on the subject. That’s just me when I write, sometimes!
A lot of people make texting a very ugly experience, see? I didn’t blame it on texting, I blamed it on people! A lot of people make you wish you never got introduced to smart phones, and sometimes you wish you are on the surface of the moon, where certainly there is no 3G or 4G, some people piss you off and others make you just sit there in the dark and wonder “What the hell is wrong with these people?!”
Dear readers, if you are reading this make sure you are non of the people that I’m gonna mention below, and if you are one of these, please make some efforts to change, because whatever you are doing is just not right!
Strangers & Texting!
Okay cool, we never chatted before? You just found me randomly on some social media and you thought “Oh, what a cool chick, let’s chitchat and impress her!”
Wohoo! I’m all excited! lol
Look dear stranger, if you want to chat, try to follow conversation basic steps, don’t suddenly start asking questions, you don’t have to know how old I’m, where I live, where I work, how many brothers and sisters I have and what I’m doing right now. How about you introduce yourself? And how about you keep it nice, polite and short as a start, why do you have to be so nosy? You really are a stranger at the end, and butting yourself into my business is gonna make you look weird and intimidating. Stop that please, it’s totally ugly, a total turn off.
If we never chatted before here is a very important thing you need to know, I’m not so keen nor happy to receive a text from you late at night, I’m not happy to discover that a lot of people still think it’s ok to text strangers at midnight or later. And hey don’t you be upset if I saw your message and didn’t reply to you. Your late message can be interpreted as “RUDE, STUPID,INAPPROPRIATE, RETARD, ETC“
Dear stranger, pretending to discuss work late at night is not an excuse for you to text, tomorrow never dies, hopefully, there is always tomorrow, and there is sunshine after dark, please be patient till the sun comes up and text me, I’m a hard working person, at night I do not want to discuss anything related to work, clear dear stranger?
Clients & Texting!
Great, we love you, we want to help you, we know you expect something from us, whether because you are paying us or because you believe in our knowledge/experience/intelligence/abilities, whatever that was, again I repeat DO NOT TEXT AT NIGHT and expect to have an answer, DO NOT BE UPSET if you were being ignored, because suddenly you felt the urge to figure something out, right now right now, no, no! Hold on! Everything can wait, I know because whatever your problem is right now, at 1 am no one is going to solve it for you, even you won’t get it and try to solve it, even if I told you what you should do, UNLESS, yes and I mean it, UNLESS it was an EMERGENCY, which in my case isn’t a possibility, because I’m not a hospital nor a firefighting station. Sleep tight, relax and text me in the morning, or wait for us to meet.
Managers/Business Owners & Texting!
Yes! I know you have responsibilities! I know that you are concerned and I know you my have a heart attack from whatever position you are holding! But hey! That is not my problem! Try dear darling to, first of all, be clear in your texts and messages, be as short as possible, I’m sure someone in your position should be smart enough to deliver the point straight, loud and clear. Don’t contradict yourself.
Secondly, I’m not a slave, neither my colleagues, nor you, we are not slaves to our jobs, how about business text messages stop around 8 pm? Wouldn’t that be great? Wouldn’t it be just perfect to be work free physically and mentally by that time? Would you not want to watch a movie? See your friends? Spend time with your family away from your phone? Don’t you have a life? Awesome maybe the answer to all of the above is no! But okay, well, I’m sorry but I do have a life, and you being happy or stressed out for being a business owner or a manager shouldn’t affect me positively or negatively, and I shouldn’t feel that buzz and fuss that you live in, because honestly I’m not in your position, so please give me a break!
Thirdly, whatever language you decide to choose to text me/us, please use that language properly, either you know that language perfectly fine and you know how to use it, and so you do, or do not throw shit in my eyes and trash my head with your poor grammar and awful spelling! I know, they did you wrong when they made you a manager when your, let’s say, English skills are shitty, but hey! It’s okay! You don’t have to suffer! Count me in with you, I don’t have to suffer either! Would you like to use another language? Maybe your mother-tongue is the best option for everyone? Great! Please do that! It makes you look better, and we won’t be making fun of you behind your back!
Complainers & Texts!
Unless you are a family member, or one of those friends that I often hang out with, or be better said, a good good friend of mine, try not to complain to me over any text messages. Why? Because I’m already full of complaints myself, because I don’t need your negativity inside my phone and right there in my eyes and deep in my brains, and I don’t complain to you, so what made you just come and complain to me?
Okay, let’s be human for a second, I want to be a good person and try to help you get the hell out of your shit-hole, why on earth would you complain to me in the middle of the night…? Do you really think this will help me sleep? I’m already insomniac and your gloomy/stressful problems will not help me relax, chill and fall alseep. If by any chance, you are forced to complain, try to do it anytime of the day, but please, not during bed time please, that’s really not fair, not good for anyone and not going to make anything better!
LinkedIn Users & Texts!
Most of the times, you guys are being assholes! You know why? LinkedIn, and other similar sites, are made for people to connect regarding work, finding jobs and expanding businesses. Why do you screw that up and turn it into a dating website? Really? Is that the best you could make out of it? Seriously? Are you sure you’re mature enough? Are you actual adults? Or? Help me figure it out please!
DO NOT ACT LIKE A MORON and use such nice websites to find your other half! Go ahead, and create an account in some actual dating site, there are billions of them…
Texting During Gym Class!
Oh yeah? Wow! How nice of you to use your phone and text during gym class! How respectful and how polite of you! That also applies to texting while in school class, texting during eating, texting during receiving a massage, texting while praying, texting while reading, etc.
Look, I’m sure both Putin, the president of the Russian Federation, and Obama, the president of the United States Of America, keep their phones in the lockers when they hit the gym, and they do run a serious business, I believe lol. And so, I do not think that you will receive some text that is as important as the texts they might receive! That’s firstly.
And secondly, if you wanna keep playing with your phone and texting and taking stupid selfies and showing them off on SnapChat during my class, please get the hell out and come back when you are done, because you are very distracting and you also look very silly! Taraaa!!
My third point is very important, because it’s for your own good; look, I know this damn phone is stuck to your hands with some super glue, and that you just can’t help it, but how about you have some time for yourself? ME, MYSELF AND I TIME? “Me, myself and I time” is an amazing experience! You gotta try it! It’s really awesome! It makes you feel great! It helps you connect with your poor self! Try it, leave your damn phone somewhere and enjoy yourself without it. I promise, you will not die, no!
That’s all for tonight, I hope something will change after this.
Not being upset, mad or angry, not at all, again, I’m just saying!
Queen Zoya visits her Kingdoms frequently, and doesn’t like half of what she sees down there! This time she noticed how the “Citizens” disrespect each others money and properties all the time.
She noticed how “Citizens” borrow money from each other, and when it comes to paying back they feel like giving something precious they own away, which shouldn’t be the case, because it isn’t theirs in the first place. So they start delaying, and finding excuses in order not to pay back, or the find ways to pay in installments, while they received the money at once.
Or when they borrow things from each other, they misuse, misplace and abuse them, unlike if they were theirs. They rarely care for what they don’t own, and they don’t put themselves in each other’s shoes.
They don’t have to borrow things to misuse them, they might misuse things they see and encounter in public areas, even things like trees and plantations.
Queen Zoya didn’t like that at all, she even got pissed off, and punished everyone she met, who misbehaved that way, by damaging their own belongings and turning their golden coins into bronze coins in front of their eyes, for them to know the reason behind her action, thinking they don’t deserve to own things and be in charge for things!
Zoya the Queen isn’t always serious, serious can be lame! She decided to take a ride on her immortal horse in the “Under-World” in order to amuse herself.
“Citizens” were here and there; working, playing, studying, sleeping, eating, cooking, reading, watching TV, arguing, etc. The “Under-World” was busy, full of “citizens”, it was quiet loud compared to the “Upper-World”, and crowded as well. She decided not to pay attention to those who were busy working, because for her, while she was looking for entertainment, they didn’t look interesting, in the contrary, the looked boring and all serious.
But there’s something interesting that was happening over there, most of the “citizens” were busy arguing with one another. She decided to listen to their arguments and see if they argue about anything that can be interesting. For her own amazement, the majority of them were arguing, even the horse noticed that.
She was astonished by how “citizens” judge each other, so if someone does something good to someone then they are considered good, they praise each other, whether that was face to face, or in each other’s backs. But once someone does something, not necessarily bad, but isn’t acceptable by the other, they are judged as bad immediately, and “citizens” find so many ways to ruin each other’s reputation, find ways to scold and hate each other, and castigation becomes so easy to do. Not only that, but they also become creative in disrespecting each other, and allow themselves to let others see that “citizen” as evil as bad as they seem them themselves. Almost everyone was like that, friends, couples, colleagues, mates, even family members.
And funny how if that disregarded “citizen” does good again, all the bad words said about them are to be forgotten, and that “citizen” becomes good again, no matter how far they went in showing their bad side, once they do good, they are fabulous again, they are magnificent again, they are the greatest again!
And no matter what, everyone followed the opinion of the emotional “citizen”, who cried and screamed and shouted bad words and judgments, and once that “citizen” smiles, they forget everything and listen to the new positive judgments and thoughts, and they believe either way, like their opinion didn’t count or mattered.
The Queen, understanding how emotional “citizens” could be, didn’t understand how illogical they could be at the same time.
The Queen goes back to her Throne, laughing and weeping at the same time over her own “citizens”, knowing they were never going to change.
Have you ever owned a sea?
Before Zoya moved to the “Upper-World” she was travelling around the “Under-World”, discovering it, looking for something to learn.
That journey led her to a sea which was too salty that not a living soul can live inside it. That sea was always calm during the day, very mid waves would touch the shores and withdraw right away, its water was too thick and felt like oil, and as soon as the sunset starts, the waves grew bigger and bigger, till they grew mad at night.
She spent the whole day sitting on the shore, looking at the sea, and how “citizens” bathed in it, she noticed how they didn’t actually swim but just floated oddly in it. And heard and saw many kids crying and complaining that the water burned their skin and made it itchy. Later when the sunset approached the skies, the waves became bigger and wider, they made noises and hit the shores with more aggression. She still sat and watched people getting out of it with their hands on their teary eyes, as the waves didn’t bother there were “citizens” bathing and relaxing, and splashed salty water into their eyes. These “citizens” tried to reach the shore with their eyes closed hoping for someone to bring normal water to wash their faces with, they’d stumble and fall many times before they arrived to a safe point. Zoya enjoyed the scene, but wasn’t sure she wanted to be a victim of this weird sea.
The night approached sooner than she expected it, and the place was suddenly dark and people vanished behind the darkness, everything was quiet except for the waves that were racing to hit the rocks on the shore. Zoya felt herself all alone and isolated. But she didn’t feel scared, because she had her horse standing right next to her. She stood up, patting the horse’s forehead asking him how did he find this place, and of course the horse doesn’t talk but she could read his mind as good as he could. He told her that he liked it there, and that he was glad “citizens” wee all gone, and that they both now can try and get into that water. “But it’s dark, doesn’t that scare you?” Zoya asked. “No, darkness doesn’t scare a horse like me, let’s go!” he encouraged her, “But dear, we don’t see how big the waves are, we don’t see the stones inside the water, I don’t wanna stumble and fall in such salty water, we can’t waste the water that we have to wash.” But the horse started marching towards the water and big waves started crashing against his forelegs, and bigger waves came to hit his chest, he stepped back, “Zoya! This wants to kill me!”, “Yeah sure! I told you, let’s wait for the morning, then we can bath like everyone else did.”
But the horse was curious to know what would happen if Zoya went into the water, and so he insisted that she tries, “Come on Zoya, let’s see what happens if you go alone.”, “Same as happened to you!”, “No way, I feel something else is going to happen.”, “Yeah, maybe it will kill me, that would be something different.”, “No, no! It won’t kill you! come on, just try, if you felt uncomfortable then leave, just like I did”
Zoya got up and walked carefully towards the sea, she could hear the waves coming and going, and she could sense the power in them. Funny how the breeze coming from the sea was warm. The moment she stepped one foot into that water, the water turned still, she wasn’t sure if her foot was inside the water because it was warm too. She stepped in and walked into the water, while the horse walked and waited at the edge of the shore. No more waves, Zoya then touched the water with her hands and felt it heavy like oil, she rubbed it on her arms before she decided to let go and sit and try to float like everyone did earlier that day. She felt the water carrying her gently, very gently, she felt herself weightless. She tried to stand in the water, and it worked as if she was standing on some ground but there was nothing but water surrounding her, she called out for her horse to join her, but as soon as the horse stepped a foot in, the waves started crashing on his legs, Zoya then went back to her horse, climbed him to lead him, and as they walked in together the water behaved, everything was quiet. Zoya Jumped of his back, stood in the water and they both walked together deeper into the sea. The horse then thought “I was right!” and Zoya smiled at his thought, not quite sure what to think.
Zoya felt so comfortable and thought this sea won’t hurt her no matter what, there is a reason why she came, and she knew she would discover it soon. They bathed and enjoyed, later washed and slept till the morning splashed some gold on the surface of the sea.
And again “citizens” came, swam and bathed, sat down and enjoyed the morning sun, everything was just right. The time passed quickly, till the sunset time arrived, and the waves grew bigger and harsher, attacking “citizens” and making them feel uncomfortable. One could hear the cry of children and the anger of men. Zoya then stood up walked into the sea, the waves didn’t stop then, but every time a waves was going to hit her it suddenly died just right in front of her body, Zoya then went deeper, stood in the water facing the waves, but every wave died just there. Zoya was frustrated, because there is nothing fun about that. She screamed then: Let me have some fun!! The waves then came back, very big, but very gentle, carrying Zoya over them, she felt her body going up on a waves then down after the wave was gone. She spent enough time playing with the waves, and not a single salty drop of water rested on her face or got into her eyes. She then turned around to ask her horse to join when she saw a big crowd of “citizens” watching her in silence. She felt somehow uncomfortable. And so she decided to go back to her horse, where she felt safer.
As she was walking outside the water, she herself was surprised that she didn’t stumble nor fell, and as soon as she reached the shore, a woman came to her and asked her “Do you own the sea?”, Zoya then didn’t know what how to reply. And another man came wondering “Does the sea belong to you?” She again didn’t know what to say, but she turned around looking at the sea, she smiled to the sea, and as soon as she did, water came out of it flying in the air like fountains on its surface in shapes of circles and squares and crossed lines. Everyone then understood that The Crazy Salty Sea belonged to this girl who’s a stranger to everyone around.
When Queen Zoya settled down in the “Upper-World” She asked King David to bring her her Crazy Salty Sea, saying: Nothing made me feel any happier than the Sea.
I promised before to tell you how Zoya, the Queen, turned from a mortal “citizen” into an immortal Queen, and so here is the charming story.
Long time ago, when knowledge wasn’t accessible to everyone, either because there was no path to it, or it was too important that it was kept hidden away from the common, Zoya was born and brought into this world, to a family that was, of course, just a common.
As soon as she started talking, which she did very early, her parents knew that she was different, special and enlightened in a way they couldn’t understand. She told her mother for how she remembers very well watching her when she was still in her belly, and how she also felt her mother’s love and tried her best not to cause her any difficulties during her pregnancy.
Bit by bit as Zoya started growing she started writing poems, although no one taught her to write or read, and she started painting too. She in her arts referred to things no one around her knew before her. Not only that though, she was also being able to tell the history of a person just by looking into their eyes, she knew everyone’s life, sorrow, happiness and secrets. “Citizens” from all around the “Remote Kingdoms” came to meet this girl and see this prodigy, to listen to her poems, to gaze at her paintings and got lost in them, and to test her abilities of narrating their pasts. Zoya got a bit older, and discovered her love to music and singing, she composed her own, and played on different available instruments, music that spoke to everyone’s soul.
Her parents understood her powers, and that she was unique in every aspect, but they didn’t know what to do with that child. She, as they heard, was the one and only with such maddening talents. They were happy and blessed to have such a child, however they were worried and didn’t know how to protect her. Nevertheless, Zoya didn’t need any protection, she knew and sensed where danger laid and avoided it.
Zoya grew into a smart, fearless, wise yet vivid and vigorous adult. She, everywhere she went, shined like a star. “Citizens” spotted her unintentionally, she was like a magnet. Those who didn’t know anything about her, didn’t actually understand their indiscriminate attraction to her. The moment their eyes met with hers they couldn’t stop staring, they felt they were looking for something like an answer, a clue, or an infinite treasure that was going to change their lives. Only she could stop those eyes from devouring hers, by one single blink, all that magnetic attraction would vanish.
Although Zoya lived for a while the life that she wanted, she wasn’t later satisfied. She wanted to know more and to learn more. She wanted to be wiser, calmer and more tranquil. She wanted the world to be a better place, she wanted to make it a happy place, but she didn’t know how, for it was full of troubles, poverty, wars and tragedies. Despite this she decided to travel around the “Remote Kingdoms” and find the answers to her questions. She traveled for a long time, sometimes she even lost the sense of time. She saw lots of new things and met many “citizens”, she expanded her horizons and decided her favorite places. She worked in random places for random “citizens” to earn some pennies to keep herself alive and sheltered. She served in a barn that belonged to a rich “citizen”, who owned mansions and huge farms. Since then she knew her love to horses can never die. She took care of a horse, that she felt was reflecting her personality and thinking, even though this animal didn’t talk, it could read her mind as clearly as she could read its. The owner noticed her attachment to the horse and as she wanted to travel further, he gave her that horse as a gift for her dedication and hard work. She continued her journey, knowing she still didn’t accomplish her mission, not knowing exactly what her mission was. She wanted to see and know everything. She knew later that knowledge was infinite.
One night she woke up thrilled by the terrified neighing of her horse, she didn’t get the chance to calm it down when she saw a shadow of a man riding another horse. That figure of his was bigger than any other “citizen”, and the shadow of the horse was huge too. Fear took over her and she couldn’t think nor react, she suddenly froze, and that ice inside her soul became rapidly contagious, everything froze; the horse, the breeze, the greens and every living soul. Time stopped along with her heart. Zoya was still being able to see and hear, and she knew she wasn’t dead yet. As soon as the man put his hand on hers, In a single second, she saw her whole life passing by in front of her eyes, she had seen it all, but the end wasn’t given to her. Then suddenly an enormous feeling of explosion happened inside her and inside everything, around her and around everything, but it was mute, so mute that no one can understand it, it was like an explosion of rocks caused by the powerful pressure of water trying to furiously climb into the surface, but the only difference was the silence it held in it. Life returned to her as soon as she respired and her horse stomped with one of his legs against the ground.
That man is King David, who back then was “The Prince of The Kingdom of All Kingdoms”. Nobody knew there was such a Kingdom, because no one saw it or heard about it. It was beyond their reach, too far, too big and too serene to be spotted. The Prince spoke to her without saying words, and told her how everyone in “The Kingdom of All Kingdoms” longed to meet her even before she was born. He told her that they had to wait for the right time to meet her, and how they watched her every day and night, protected her and provided her with everything she needed to be ready and to be as wise as she should have been. Zoya seemed very confused, she couldn’t understand what exactly she had to conclude, but since he read her mind, he knew he had to explain.
She could hear his voice, although he was silent,”Dear Zoya, you are not to stay here, you don’t belong to this place. You are one of a kind. Everyone in “The Kingdom of All Kingdoms” has been waiting for you, including myself. Your time is not now, not here.”, she didn’t understand and questioned it in her mind, “Then where, and why if I was born here, on this earth?”, He was going to explain further, looking deeply in her eyes, when he suddenly felt a burning sensation inside him, he never felt that way, and didn’t realize it as quickly as he should have, his thoughts and ideas vanished, she realized immediately what happened and fast enough she blinked to relief him for the magnetic attraction that everyone else couldn’t explain or handle. He felt suddenly released, and wondered demanding himself for an answer but he couldn’t find it, and decided to continue explaining to her who she was and where she was supposed to be. “Your royalty, you are an “Indigo Child”. All the other indigo children are not to be here yet, and they are all still reserved for when the time is right. I know you don’t know what an indigo child is. You do sense and realize how different you are from everyone else, don’t you?”, she nodded agreeing, “You are the child of the future, you’re a different kind; the one the world will need later, when life is harder and faster, and quickly developed and changed. Your kind will bring enlightenment to the world you know. But to keep you here means to lose you, you are mortal, “The Kingdom of All Kingdoms” can’t let this happen. Your life matters to everyone out there, We found only one indigo child, which is you”.
Zoya then unwillingly stared in his eyes, as deep as thoughtful as it was possible for her then, not realizing what this man was saying, not being able to relate. And he fell again a victim of that burning sensation. When it happened the second time she managed to stop it too, but a bit slower than the first, he knew that was not a feeling that anyone in “The Kingdom of All Kingdoms” was supposed to feel, he knew they were not supposed to feel anything, but he and for the first time felt, felt something he didn’t know, until later.
She had to suffer for a short while to lose her mortal heart and soul and hold ones that are immortal. It was painful, it was cruel, yet it happened too fast. The Prince knew that he had to remove all her feelings too, because feelings don’t matter in the “Upper World”, but no matter how hard he tried he couldn’t get them out of her, she suffered even more, the harder he tried the worse it was for her. He soon knew that he was going to lose that battle, and as soon as he realized it he screamed with agony, he felt pain, something he never felt before. He let go of her feelings, he felt he was going to commit a horrible crime that is unforgivable to him if he just destroyed her feelings. Zoya since then became immortal, an undying indigo child that is supposed to do something to the “Under-world” later on. He turned her horse into an immortal huge horse, explaining to her “That it is actually an indigo animal, the one and only found as well. We have to take it with us, it will be always yours, your royalty, you are a princess now, and you should have a noble horse like this one.”.
They had to travel to the “Upper world”, and on the way there he told her about the burning sensation, and how he didn’t know what it was. “Have you never loved anyone in your life?” She was surprised by her own question. “Loved? No, we don’t love” he explained, “But what you felt was love!”, He kept his thoughts to himself, not willing to even think about feelings, but then he remembered the agony he felt, and asked her about it too, “I felt I was a demon when I was in the processes of making you immortal, I felt I couldn’t look at you between my arms while you were suffering. What was that, is that love too?”, he hoped for a no, “That is love too, but this is more of regret and self torturing feeling, that is when one feels they can’t forgive themselves for something bad they’ve done. That’s your good side feeling sorry for others who are suffering.”
The Prince then knew that he not only found the one and only indigo child, but also knew that he fell in love for the first and the last time, with someone who’s emotions were supposed to be erased, with someone whom he was supposed to free from emotions, instead this someone has given him treasures, feelings he can only feel while he’s with her. She changed his life for good.
How immortal “citizens” are?
Queen Zoya, never forgets that one day she was mortal. Sitting on the edge of the moon with King David, watching together the world down there, as she started day-dreaming, and he, while watching her, secretly admiring her immortal beauty, looked through the under-world.
Some “citizens” reached glory already, and some are on their way, and others, yes others, don’t know anything about glory. Glory of achievements, of knowledge, of fame, or of wealth, since it comes in so many ways.
It pretty much amused the King that the cycle of “citizens” glory is pretty short, unlike his; his glory is just like him, immortal and made to last till there’s no end. As the King spotted an interesting glory cycle happening he put his hand on the Queen’s shoulder, so gently he did in order not to suddenly disturb her. The moment she opened her eyes, he looked into them and smiled, that immortal smile, that lasts printed in her memory forever. He pointed with his finger towards that interesting cycle of that “citizen” who works hard to reach glory, no matter how big or small the “citizen’s” dream was, it was still interesting to watch. That “citizen” was growing relatively fast, breaking barriers to his dreams. It takes of course the “citizens” a matter of years to achieve certain things, but for the upper-world time has a different value. A few years time is a matter of a day or two up there. They both watched quietly admiring the efforts that “citizen” puts into his target, valuing each step and each favor given to him, each hardship he tries to take easily, wisely and patiently. His royalty King David, whispered in the Queen’s ear “Isn’t that impressive?”, she in return nodded, on her mind agreeing on how this “citizen” doesn’t fall no matter how things and other “citizens” try to break him. At the bottom of the road to glory he went steady, and as he was approaching the climax of his glory, things started happening rapidly, too fast, he had no time to think or decide, reaching that glory of his happened too quickly he couldn’t even realize it, but by the time he did he collapsed.
Zoya shook her head side to side feeling sorry for the “citizen” who couldn’t even last till that moment to enjoy a glimpse of his dream coming true. But the King patted her shoulder, even gentler than his whisper, assuring her such living souls like that glorious “citizen” continue to fight for their dreams.
At the same time, someone down there got immediately inspired by that “citizen”, let’s call him the “glorious citizen”, and unconsciously followed his steps trying to reach his dream too. No matter how different the methods he chose to use, he still followed the same steps. “Would he reach glory”, the Queen thought silently. And the King laughed, sarcastically laughed! Zoya looked at him surprised, and he knew he got to justify it for her.
“My dearest, my Queen, look at them, they fight for things they know aren’t theirs. They want to last forever through their dreams and glories. But my dearest, don’t you just believe me when I say that their glory is some sort of energy, it’s not contagious, and so it’s not going to spread around, it only shifts and changes its direction, from one “citizen” to another, like any other type of energy down there. One time it’s for this “citizen” another time it’s for another.”, the Queen knew the King was right, he was never mistaken, and didn’t expect him to sympathize with them, since she knows as well that only she in the upper-world has feelings for the world down there.
“Then how can they make glory theirs and lasting?”, the Queen then wondered.
“There’s only one way my Queen”, the King said looking thoroughly into all his Kingdoms.
“What is that one and only way?”, she asked, not sure about the answer.
“The one and only way, my dearest, is if they knew and believed that there is another immortal life waiting for them somewhere else. When that belief grows deep and wild in them they will work harder on their own mental, psychological and spiritual glory, because these are the only things they take with them to their other immortal lives.”
“And everyone down there deserves the glory they reach?”, she curiously asked.
“Do you assume that everyone down there prefers the clean path? If the path they choose was full of dirt then how do they deserve any glory?”. He answered firmly.
The Queen then stared and stared at each and every single “citizen” down there, knowing sadly that not all of them know or have the key to immortal glory, for they were ignorant enough to find the right path.
No, the Queen hasn’t been just sitting over there doing nothing. She has been observing and observing. She’s pretty curious and furious too.
Zoya, the Queen, noticed something long long time ago when she was a citizen, she noticed the tax of luxury, and knew long ago that the tax is high.
Some “citizens” down there strive to have a luxurious life, in order to have everything. They work hard, days and nights, start businesses, make them grow, hiring people to work for them as well. Running round and round to see big numbers in their bank accounts. They want to have the fanciest cloths, the biggest houses, the latest technologies and the most expensive cars. They want to provide their children with the most “effective” education, and take their families on trips for the most amazing places on vacations.
They are ready for everything, good and bad, just to accomplish their materialistic goals and their social statuses. This can be good of course, but not all the time. Rich “citizens” don’t have to go through this pain, or spend all these efforts, simply because they were born and going to die this way, having everything. In the contrary, “citizens”, who want a high life, want it all, but she knew also since she was a “citizen” that no one can hold all the apples in one hand.
And so, she observed them from above, taking all the stress, making money, and thereafter they had so much to worry about, they had to pay a lot in return, bank credits, massive house holds, expensive educations, huge health insurances, cars and properties maintenance, income taxes, employees salaries, families’ financial requirements, every big and small, etc, and above all that they pay their health to reach the summits. But hey! Time… Time passes by quickly, and people age sooner than they think, and why? Because they have been too busy noticing it, too busy to enjoy their lives, too busy to get to know themselves and their loved ones. They have been working so hard to enjoy things later, instead of enjoying things now and today. And later may not come. The Queen didn’t need to imagine, but wished for them to imagine, if one of them was on a vacation to enjoy their times with their closest people, and their heads are messed up with work and stress, with digits and numbers, with responsibilities and worries, what would that vacation be like? If one worked their whole lives, and did everything to have everything and once they had it, which is always less than they wanted, and suddenly their lives were over, how sad would that be? They wouldn’t have the chance to enjoy the results of their efforts and time.
The Queen, although wanting to help the kingdoms, didn’t do anything this time to change reality. Knowing how greedy “citizens” can be, and how miserably they live and later die.
