The Game of Life and Monopoly
The Monopoly Game
The Game of Life
I am continuously struck by enlightenment. I am evolving as a species and I continue to see with more clarity.
My most recent awakening is that in comparison between reality and the games we grew up playing, as well as the games we still play as adults. Take for example, the games of MONOPOLY and LIFE.
They are games that seem to come equipped with a pair of dice, a choice peg, money, cars, homes, etc. Isn't that what we do in the reality of life? We make a choice (roll the dice), and hope for the highest points.
In the game of MONOPOLY, we hope for the car, the home, the hotel, the property, etc. etc.. "Stuff" is how I will refer to it. We look to see who can acquire the most stuff. The most valuable stuff and at the end of the game, isn't it about who has the most money? ( I review my thoughts with a smirk on my face as I approach life with a sense of humor). Isn't this what we do in reality? Isn't it about who has the most money? We seem to envy those that have the nice cars, the big houses, etc., etc. But are those people truly happy? Regarding the board game, as a player we seem to become more competitive as the game continues. We hope to be the winner and be better than our competition. Hmmm......This sure sounds like reality to me.
Take the game of LIFE for instance, a game that is played based on choices and chances. There are hundreds of different board games out there and we can take anyone of them and reflect on how they resemble the different circumstances, situations and experiences we have in life. Maybe, the underlying reality of board games is to help us as human beings, develop the skill of making choices. Choices that effect our reality in the scope of here and now, and what could be the outcome.
On a different note, in reality our attitude is everything. Our attitude shapes the reactions around us as it is a reflection of our true inner attitude.
Are you centered and grounded in your being? Are you in alignment with your higher being? Are you in control of you? Can you see that the only control you have is that of your own thinking and attitude. Your own choices is what creates your reality. So I ask you this.............Is life a reality game we play without even being conscious of it?
Life Of Illusion
The Ups and Downs of Life
Ups and Downs
The game of CHUTES AND LADDERS is a game that takes us up and down as in the reality of life. Life is filled with inconsistency and chances. The ups and downs of life as it is referred to.
(I reflect on my childhood and recall this being my favorite game. Now I see how sometimes what we play is where we learn how to be the most durable within our own reality.)
