Aura of Excellence
There has always been those who rise from slavery to positions of power and nobility. This is a mark of all human civilizations and inherent to humanity itself.
That which is achieved through Greatness is not obtained arbitrarily. Wealth, power, love, and influence flock to Greatness like a magnet, as the necessary byproduct of Excellence. Excellence comes first, like a seed which then grows fruit.
Greatness will not be contained by one’s social position. Greatness will not be restrained by one’s situation. The flame of Excellence will not be extinguished by the limitations of its vessel.
There are those who will create something from nothing and continually rise from their starting station.
There are those who turn all that they touch into gold, and illuminate the darkness wherever they wander. Although they wander, they are guided by a light from within.
These people have a discernible mark, as if touched by Mercury himself. These people have a light that shines through them; a vibration they emanate; characterized by an aura of Excellence.
Greatness is attainable to anyone who strives for it. For Greatness is not given or granted, but is achieved in the heart of the individual. Like dominos, the Greatness from within causes the Greatness from without.
No matter the darkness, it can be made bright. The darker the darkness, the brighter the light. Excellence can flourish in even the most unlikely soil, and Excellence is the only plant that makes the earth richer by its flourishing.
It has been said that humanity is a rope over an abyss. Instead, humanity is a doorway from which the light of Excellence may shine into the world.
