The Game of Life is Living
It’s a funny old life. We ask ourselves, and every Guru in the business of spiritual evolution wants us to ask: Why are we here? What is the purpose of life? Where are we going? In answer to that last question Dr Quantum suggests: Look Up. See those little shiny twinkly things overhead? It seems as if you may be headed there. It is possible you will become a star one day. In time a galaxy. Perhaps once you get off your training wheels eventually you too can become a universe. Too far in the future? Don’t want to get ahead of yourself? Man! Get your name on the list. Are you down with that? I’m down wid it man! I put my name down for becoming a universe. Yeah I just signed up last week. But I gotta warn you the training program is hell. Or is it Heaven? Hmmm . . . let me see. Yep, the game of life is living.
Hmm so this must be the game of life. And what is the Game of Life then? But Living! Not winnng, mind you, That is different. That’s the game of competing. And the only rule of the Game of Life is this. There MUST be a game. And if there isn’t one playing then chances are you will invent one. Who was it that said man is a meaning making machine? Have you ever noticed that a friend, relative or acquaintance may have a whole story going on in their imagination that is just so NOT the story you had been telling yourself and others? Another way of saying this is that we like to play . . .no we MUST play. Have you noticed? It’s the only thing you really don’t get to have much choice in. There MUST be a game and the game of life is living.
Of course this points up the fact that children are already well tuned in to the purpose and journey of life. For wherever you put them they will invent some game. Which may lead us to an overwhelming conclusion. The purpose of life is to have fun. So if the game of life is living and the purpose of the game is to have fun it must be obvious by now to all but the most dopey dumb and thick people that the current winners are those people who are now practicing meditation, doing Yoga. Learning to cook holistic and macro foods, starting eco villages, studying Ayurveda, building Earthships etc. These are the fools who are in the process of stepping of the edge of a cliff into the abyss of nothingness and mysteriously flying with wings of angels. Meanwhile the logical blockheads of reason stand on the edge of that cliff complaining. You can’t fly! It’s impossible, or so they say. Right now these blockheads look a lot like the Friends of Science in Medicine who are trying to have the teaching of natural therapies taken out of universities. Boy do these squares ever not know how to have fun. They are so determined to invest in dying when the game of life is living.
