I was wondering what must have come to your mind when you saw the title, smile, for me I was thinking it was those animals that do disturb my ceiling with the way they run around (laughs).
Well, it’s beyond that. If you decide to pay a little more attention to the word RATS, you will notice if spelt backwards become STAR. Wow! Isn’t that interesting? So what then is the relationship between RATS and STAR?
First, we need to realize rats operate from the base, that is, the bottom while a star is at the top. That is they operate at opposite levels.
Secondly, you will realize that as humans we look down at rats whereas we LOOK UP to a star. This is a result of the territory they operate from.
Thirdly, you will agree with me that the first thing that comes to mind when you see rats in your home or vicinity is how to drive it out or kill it but on the otherhand a star is what we admire and wish we could touch.
Why do we try all our possible best to drive rats out of our homes? Because all they do is steal (TAKE) from us meanwhile a star gives beautiful feel to us. That is one adds value to mankind, the other takes away value.
Lastly because of time, why are rats not valued? Because they’re ALWAYS around and can be seen at about just anytime of the day. But a star has a time it appears that makes it glow thereby making it admirable.
So then how does this relate to us? We need to ask ourselves if we’re living as rats or as a star. What realm do you operate from? Do you give to mankind or only think of taking from humanity? Do you roam the street seeking for trash or appear with glow? With what you carry right now, do men look down to you or look up to relate with you?
If you’re living as rats do, all you need is to do things in the reverse direction and you’re on your way to becoming a STAR. A star here doesn’t mean amassing all the wealth in the world or possessing all the available material things and positions instead it means the VALUES that will be recorded that mankind benefited from your existence.
I’ve seen different types of rat poison, but I’ve never come across a STAR POISON. Therefore, be a STAR and a big one at that.
