The Game we call life

02167_HD

“There have been years of searching for
the blissful emotion,
the perfect life,
the right things to do,
the desirable identity,
the comforting words,
the high profile job,
the picture perfect this,
and a sense of closure
within every event.

I wanted to be wanted.
I needed to be needed.
The yearning to be envied,
the way I envied the unattainable.
The sweet tasks of manipulation
in order to produce the golden moments.

The daily efforts to soothe and sedate
my worried mind.
The undercurrents of suffering
looked so pretty when they
were the seemingly petty sacrifice
to attain future goal.

So much self concern.
Self importance
Absorption
Myopic world.

*Deep breath*

And that’s ok.

That is the experience.
It doesn’t mean anything more.
It is the seeing of that state.
The observation of what that
kind of thinking looks like
and feels like.

It was lived through me.
It expressed itself through this
pretend body
and in this pretend life.
I don’t judge it harshly.
I don’t judge it at all.
Because there is nothing to judge.

There is no absolute ideal.
Just the natural intelligence
that observes what is happening.
The concepts
the ideas
the rules

the boundaries
the imperatives
the goals
the should’s
the passing of time
is all part of this game.

This beautiful
incredible
intricate
and
infinite
game
that we call life.

We take it seriously.
and believe in its impact.
We believe there is something
to be done.
That there is somewhere to get to.
That there is someone or something
That needs to be changed
or saved
or ended.

Like we ever really had control.
Like we ever really made any choices.
Like we were ever separate.
Like we were ever going to die.

You are Eternal.
Nothing can hurt you.
Suffering comes
and it goes.
Joy comes
and it goes.
the bottomless, boundless
ocean of Life
Of which you are.
Of which we are.
We are That”
