How about looking at life like a computer game...
The game reveals to you ways to keep the game going like clues that lead you places in the game … keep you entranced and feeling like you are getting somewhere in the game … cause in a way you are … you get to go to the next level if you crack certain challenges … that's what challenges in a computer game do … but they don't really get you anywhere … your still sitting in your chair playing a game as if you have accomplished something … but that is the prize that is overlooked … you win in the game sure … but the Player … You … have not moved nor gained anything that wasn't there before you started playing.
If you've ever played a computer game … you first of all know … that everything that you are going to do in the game has already been set up for you and done … tested by its Creator and signed and sealed … in a sense the game is already over before you start playing and there is nothing you can do about that … but knowing this doesn't make you any better or less for playing … you bought the game to play it.
One of my favorites games for a while was Grand Theft Auto Vice City … good graphics … you can sort of feel like you are driving the car around in the game … good music … so I played for hours … watched my friends and family play and watched them use cheat codes to get all this extra cool stuff that is hidden in the game .... used information that is in the game to "seemingly" get places and win points … and this to me is such a good example of looking at life … cause it is set up to look like our so-called reality and is such a cool pointer ... to see that maybe life as we think it is … how real we think it is … really isn't what we think it is.
A way to say this right now … is this body is a Joystick (pun intend) :o) and You are playing a game but you don't have any real choices … cause it's all already set up … your choices are limited to the game. There aren't any real levels even though in this world it looks like their are … it keeps it entertaining.
Well if I had a point in typing it I am beginning to forget it now.
Oh Yes ...
You are already Awake and no one can tell you that (even though I just did) … no one can make you believe it (it's beyond belief) You know it … whether you resist, deny or preach It … It IZ.
All of the above might lead one to ask:
"If I am not driving … who is?"
Signed, sealed and delivered :o))))
"There is no "I" in You."
