Is Life a Game?

Game of Life

I am not a game piece on a Monopoly board.  My life is much bigger than the economic game that has the world in a tizzy.  Where has all the wealth gone in this economic game?  No where!  Wealth is a perception of value and people are currently playing the economic game from a position of fear.

I am not a pawn on a chess board.  My life is bigger and more diverse than the war games that are being played out in the world today.  Why is their so much turmoil in the world now?  The same reason that there has always been turmoil in the world;  people are afraid of what they don’t understand and they play the game from a position of fear.  Some people do understand the power of fear and they use it to manipulate others.

We are in this world, so we all must participate in the games at some level, but each game is best kept in perspective, as a small part of vast, rich, endlessly beautiful LIFE.  The next time you collect a paycheck or spend money, remember that you are playing the game.  The next time you support or condone a violent act, remember that you are playing the game from a position of fear.

What are some of the games you find yourself playing each day?
