Once, After a hard day’s forage
Two bears sat together in silence
On a beautiful vista ,watching the sun go down
And feeling deeply grateful for life.
Though, after a while a thought-provoking conversation
began which turned to the topic of fame.
The one bear said,”Did you hear about Rustam?
He has become famous and travels from city to city
In a golden cage; He performs to hundreds
of people who laugh and applaud his carnival stunts.”
The other bear thought for a few seconds.
Then started weeping.
Augh… the quest for fame…
All to find out how caged you become. Not being able to go anywhere without people gathering around you.
Stalkers looking to get a glimpse of you in a natural state. Hoping to get a picture of you to exploit you to the tabloids and internet. Phone calls from people you don’t know, and don’t want to know. Never ending noise from all angles.
And yet – there is your “purpose” out there where you always wanted it to be. Being shared and allowed to help and entertain people every where.
That is the pay off for being famous.
To some it is totally worth it. Being famous with all that attention is their dream come true. The thought that they are doing all they can to promote themselves and help humanity.
To some it is a reason to cry
and regret the way their life has evolved like that of a caged animal. Performing daily.
Freedom gone forever…
Is it worth it?
Only you can decide.
