It’s a big playground we’re living in. Just like the ones you grew up playing on when you were 10 years old.
Life is no different than Roller Coaster Tycoon, The Sims, or World of War Craft. It is all a game. And we get to choose how we will play it.
As Carl Jung stated, “This whole creation is essentially subjective, and the dream is the theatre where the dreamer is at once scene, actor, prompter, stage manager, author, audience, and critic.”
It can be a little hard to grasp… to truly accept responsibility for how we perceive our lives and the happenings in our lives. We can’t do much about what happens to us — every second, ever atom, every encounter of the day is unpredictable with endless possibilities for outcomes. All we have is our perception.
It can be very tempting to think that the current, present moment we are in would be better if this were happening, or if we were in that moment from the past, or if we got to a different place in life.
The thing is, that’s living in a daydraemer’s world. It’s a beautiful escape, and one can choose to stay there if they don’t want to let go.
The only thing that exists, ultimately, is wherever you are, right here, right now, with whoever you are with and whomever is with you. That is the only reality, the only moment, the only now. We are all living out our own reality. Quantum physics even says so ;).
Approach each moment with curiosity and love. Observe your surroundings. Play in your interaction with these other souls whom you’ve bumped into on your journeys. Embrace anything that can grow from any moment. Each and every happening in your life has been created for you.
Play the game.
Life is more fun that way. 🙂
I wonder what you’ll discover…
PS: It gets easier. And better.
