Playing the Game

Sometimes we can become too focused on the destination. I know that I can. When this mindset takes over it is easy to surround ourselves with a vision of the future and forget about the now.

Have you ever been frustrated? Angry? Sad? Maybe things arent going the way you want them to go. Why can’t things just work out for me?!

I want to remind you of something…

Things have already worked out for you. Nothing can really go wrong and do you know why?

Because you have been given the opportunity to play the game. You have the freedom to make your own choices, shape your own thoughts.

Your experiences are yours and yours alone.

I want anyone reading this to take a moment and imagine this scenario…

You are suddenly given everything. Everything in the world. All the money, the possessions, the respect, the fame, the good emotions. Everything you have ever wanted and everything you could ever want in the future. You are a God. The world is yours.

Put yourself in this situation right now. Immerse yourself. What is it like? How are you feeling ? Not on a surface level but how are you really feeling ?

Do you feel happy ?

Do you even feel satisfied?

This is a question I asked myself recently and I realised that even with everything in the world I would still not feel content. Like there was something more…even though there was nothing more.

I think this truth is fundamental to the human experience. We are trained to think there is something out there that needs to be attained but there isn’t.

The thing that we are desperately looking for is what we already have. We are having the experience right now. Everyone seems to have forgotten. I am being! You are being!

We are the narrative.
