WAKE UP! You're asleep and your
life is passing before you! If you think and believe you are
not in control of your life, you Are
asleep. It sounds like you think life happens To
you, rather than it being
an experience where each event is an opportunity to learn and
grow. You think there's one set of rules for
God and another for humans. Think again,
there is only One set of
Rules. I realize that you may want to
make up your own set of rules as you go along, but when things
you blame God. You're the one that ignored the rules, not God. Perhaps you
can change the
rules to a card game or to Scrabble, to make it easier to win, or faster
to play, but
you cannot change the rules in the Game of Life. The Game of Life contains all
materials you need for life on earth. It also contains the Universal Power, what
God. The Universal Power
is behind all that exists. It is in
every thing and every one in
the Game. The Power Is Everything
and there is nothing you can do that
can change the Power and how it works. It is the
Earth (and the universe beyond it)
is the Game board. The Game pieces are many and yet they are
all One. You know them as animals, plants, minerals, raw materials,
etc. These Game pieces are constantly joining and leaving the Game in the
form of animate and inanimate objects. Animate objects are
the animal kingdom
and the highest form, Human Beings, experience birth and death with
spirits entering and leaving their bodies. The inanimate objects are plants,
raw materials, and the things
humans create from them. They are All important,
for they can all affect your Game as
much as what you think, say and do
during the Game.
I speak of the highest form, meaning
the most evolved, not the most superior
or most powerful.
You have to remember everything
is the same One. When you destroy something,
you destroy a part of yourself.
Who started the Game, we all did. We
(and everything that exists) are
the Power and we all started the Game. We invented
the Game and we all Chose to play. So you are as responsible for these Rules as I
am. We are
Rule # 1 - As long as you are still playing, and have not yet mastered,
the Game, there
is only one way in - Birth - and one way out - Death.
Rule #2 - Each time you play the Game, you start fresh. You choose to
forget all you know and all you ever
learned about how it works and the
You always learn as you go and you
must learn to play from your heart
and by your
instincts in order to discover the true meaning of the game.
Rule #3 - You CANNOT change the Rules, no matter how hard you try. You can ignore
them and pretend to play by different rules, and you will still be bound by
These rules. Like gravity and the
tides, the Rules are not something
you can change.
Different religions may attempt to
explain and control these Rules and
put their own
spin on them. They are still the Rules and you are still playing The Game of Life.
Rule #4 - The Universal Power just says YES! When what you say, do, and
believe are all in alignment, the
Universe says Yes. The Universe looks
listens to, all the information each of you puts out into the
world and it says Yes to
the total picture. If your mouth asks
for one thing
and your belief is that you won't get it, it is like taking one
step forward and one step
back, nothing happens. Notice how your lack of trust
or faith or commitment sabotages
what it is you say you want. Learn
conscious and be aware. When you
align your thoughts, actions and being,
you will see
results. However, this is not to say any outcome is predictable.
Manifestations are not always what they seem, so you are to look at each
instance as an opportunity to
Rule #5 - Everything in the game is related and connected. When one thing
changes, everything is affected.
Nothing is static. Everything is dynamic. What is true
one moment can change quickly
in the next. You have created an overload of stimuli
in your world that makes the connectedness within it harder to
see. When humans no longer notice --or remember to be aware-they
loose their connectedness to all things and many of these things become extinct.
Rule #6 - Everything Just "IS"! You are the one that is judging things to
be right or wrong, good or bad.
Events do not contain judgement, good
or bad, wrong or right. The response to each event is in the eye
of the recipient, beholder or
creator of that event. Each of you
decides how to react to each situation. A situation just IS. You choose
your judgment of it.
It is not a conflict with God that
you have, it is a conflict with what is, and how the what affects
what you do and have. There is no rule that states the Game is fair. You,
of course, may choose to play
in a way that you consider to be fair,
but the Game
itself is neither fair nor unfair, it just is. Some people play from
their hearts. Others play from
their heads. Still others don't yet realize they're
even in the Game. Some play to
win so others will lose. Some play
to lose so
others may win. Still others will play so all can win. You will
begin to enjoy playing The
Game when you understand there is no right or wrong
way to play it.
An integral part of the Game is that
things aren't always as they seem. What may appear to be tragedy today, may
be what allows pure triumph
later. One can spend life in judgment
of what is,
or in gratitude, anticipation and the experience of it. Same
events, different responses. The object of the Game is not more, bigger, better.
It is simply to remember Who
You Are. Some people will receive much
in life as part of their remembering
process. Wealth can either speed up
or slow it down, depending on their
response to wealth. Others will experience
too can either speed up their process
or slow it down, depending on their response to
loss. Wealth and loss are not good or
bad. They are just experiences on the
remembering. The point of the game is to fully experience Who We Are.
To remember, rediscover and to experience every aspect of
Who We Are as it relates to the
Power and to everything else that exists.
One. To enjoy life and everything
about being human. What will help you
Change your perspective. Know that
all that happens in your
lives happens For you, not To you.
All is perfect,
in the Game, for you to remember Who
You Are. When life seems stressful,
be aware and align on that door that says "Triumph"
It is just around the corner. Know that it is always there.
Just knowing it exists can make
all the difference in your thoughts
and your world as you play the
Stay conscious. You already know
everything, just remember
that you know it. Know that your perspective will change
your world. Stop from time to
time and do nothing until you get a
sense of Who You Are. Watch a child at play. Sit still in the forest
and notice the life around you. Look
around your everyday life. Take a deep
is only when you remember Who You Are
that you use your Free Will to create
your life the
way you want it. Giving back to life. Share yourself with others.
Everything that occurs past, future and present is the outward physical manifestation
of your inner most thoughts, choices, ideas and determinations regarding
Who You Are and who you Chose to be.
Choose wisely! Choose to Enjoy Life!
