Is Life a game?
Since the dawn of humankind, people have played games. These games were in a different form, and often people who participate in these games had a good time, but when the time came, there was no problem with quite a game. When the computer age started, different games were moved into the internet. New computer games were invented, but these were not the only games that were invented.
Role-playing games are the type of game where people take a different role to fulfill their fantasies. Some of them harmless and others very damaging. I do not want to talk about computer games in this article. Is Life a game?
Imagine, if you will, a game which you have created. It would be natural to find the game you have created of your interests and wish to play. Isn’t it so? Of course, not everyone is a computer geek, and not everyone can understand this. Let me give you another example. I don’t know about you, but I used to make up games and play with friends when I was a child. If you have done something similar, you can understand what I am talking about.
Imagine a computer game that you could enter inside it and play the game as a free character. The only thing is that each time when you die, you will not remember anything. You could have played the game a thousand times but did not have any recollection about it. Of course, some skills and understanding will stay somewhere deep in computer memory like a database. You have access to this database without noticing it.
How long could you play? Ten times, 100 times, or a million times. Each time the game would be known for you. Right? The normal condition of playing is that sometimes you win, and sometimes you lose. The winning and the good feeling are what is making to play again.
Real Life or life illusion is the same as a game. I do not want to go into who created the game, but similarities are enormous.
In old times people were playing games like truth or dare? It was kind of harmless because no one takes either the truth or dare extremely far. People understood that this is only something that can occupy some minutes or hours.
Each time we are incarnated, we take a new identity and play the game of Life. It is like role-playing. The core for the role we play in the Life game is who we are, but sometimes we play the game differently.
Surely you have seen in movies that your favorite actor is playing a negative role, or maybe he is a hero. In either way, that is his role and not who he is. Would you hate him if he would play a negative role? Remember, you are here to learn and experience Life. All I can say is, play it well.
This is what it means when one says life is a game but a real one. After incarnation, we choose a role that has been decided before, and we play our role. This playing is for gaining experience. The whole purpose of life is to gain experience.
I have explained this in more detail in my book but for now, remember, life is a game but a real one.
Finally, I would like to add a poem I have written. I hope you will like it.
God bless you and have a wonderful and free life. I leave you all in the love and the light of the One Infinite Creator. Go forth, therefore, rejoicing in the power and the peace of the One Infinite Creator.
