The game of life

For many years I have sat and pondered asking myself questions such as “Why is my life so difficult?” or “why do things have to be so complicated?”

Then one day the proverbial penny dropped making me realize that everything in life is truly as easy or complicated as we make it.

As humans we have been blessed with an innate ability to control our thoughts and actions. Furthermore, the extent of this control is purely up to us.

Look at your life and the world as a game. It’s a game to which we all play without being taught the rules. We have to figure them out on our own. But that’s the part of the game as well…

Life is a very special game and consists of many smaller games and the ones you’re going to play will more often than not be your own choice.

This is a game in which you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. You are already naked. Everything you have, including your possessions, your friends, your family and your own life will go away at some point.

It’s the only thing you know for sure – that you’re going to lose literally everything. However daunting this may seem such a perspective can be a blessing.

Stop holding on and just let it go as there’s nothing to be afraid of.

Once you realize you have nothing to lose, you’re much more likely to take chances and be playful. You can discover in yourself the courage to make moves you never imagined yourself making before.

You make a move and then go with the flow thus becoming an observer. With the curiosity of a child you observe the outcomes and then, you merely adjust.

It’s all part of the fun and in time you discover your natural tendency for growth, for progress. Playing on the same level gets tedious, so you have to find ways to step up, facw’ the problems and to transcend into new levels of consciousness. That’s when you realize the point of the game.

And the point is to expand.

Stop taking life so seriously. Once you do, life becomes easy but if it gets too complicated, it usually means you’ve made it complicated in your own mind.

Don’t be afraid to let it go. Life is a journey, just a short moment in the entirety of our existence. We need to stop overthinking our lives and merely go with the flow and play with it.

By emanating our positive energy we make it more fun for others too! Imagine your perfect world and make it happen. It’s your move, make it count!
