The Game Of Life…

The external world is constantly telling you what you “should” be doing. Go to school, get good grades, go to university, get a job, buy a car, buy a house, get a better-paying job, buy a bigger house…. And on it goes.

The world leads you to believe the reason you cannot fit in is you. That if everyone else can learn to fit in but you can’t, the problem is you… the common denominator.

But what if the problem is not you at all? What if trying to change and mould yourself to fit into the world will always be like trying to fit a square peg in a round hole? What if it will never work?

I’ve finally realised, at a deeper level than before, the main game of my life so far. And perhaps, the main game much of humanity is playing right now.

To live authentically. As you. In this world.

There are three key ingredients…

  • First, to understand the collective, human-made world we all live in.
  • Second, to know who you are and what you want – as both a physical human and a spiritual being.
  • Third, to understand the natural world, and how reality works at a higher level.
  • Finally, bring it all together and learn how to use these ingredients to live within the external world as your true self.

What if, by understanding these three different ingredients and how they work together, you can learn to live authentically as yourself, in your way, still in the world, but not of the world?

01 | Understand The Human-Made World

The modern, human-made world is not designed for people like you. Or me.

Let’s face it, it’s not really designed for people at all. There’s very little about the modern world that is conducive to human health and wellbeing.

Technology that keeps you tied to the screen instead of looking out.

Cities that keep you running in a rat-race, detached from nature and yourself.

Work that contributes little value to humanity other than keeping the system going.

Human-made systems such as finance, business, education, health and pharmaceuticals, religion and society are just one way of living and being. They make life easier in some ways, but way unnecessarily difficult in others.

Life in the Western world is not the only way of living and being. The problem is, humans are born into and raised by people who were born into it, who were raised by people who were born into it…

It’s circular. There’s no new ideas coming in from the outside.

From the day you enter the world you are programmed over and over from television, school, parents, religion, the internet, cultural groups and the very existence of the world around you – to believe this is the way the world is.

This doesn’t have to be the human world forever, and it certainly doesn’t have to be your world forever.

The biggest mistake I made was trying to get out of the systems and away from the human-made world. First by finding a way to make money and buy my way out. Second by discarding money and the superficial, and escaping. But to where?

But you can’t get out. The broader, bigger world, is what it is. You’re in it. I’m in it. We’re all in it. And we are subject to the collective human-made world, to an extent. There’s nowhere to go.

You first have to become aware of the systems of control. Then, understand the rules of the systems and human-made world you live in.

When that is done, you can begin to use the systems to your advantage and begin to design your life in a way that works for you.

No-one is teaching you how the human-made world works. The systems are designed to keep you in a state of stress and confusion. You need to figure it out. But you can figure it out. You already are…

02 | Understand Your Internal World

While you’re trying to figure out how the world works, likely you’re also trying to figure out who you are, why you can’t fit in and what the heck is wrong with you.

If you keep questioning and exploring, at some point you’re going to begin to connect to the unique combinations of qualities and characteristics that make you, you.

And, the soul that came to experience you…

It can be challenging to uncover your true self. Challenging not be swayed by society telling you who you are or what you want is wrong or bad or offensive, because that person does not want to comply with what society says you “should” be.

How do you discover yourself? How do you uncover yourself?

There’s no quick answer. It’s a process. It’s about understanding the way you perceive the world. Paying attention to your thoughts, emotions, beliefs and ideas about the world. Questioning where they came from, who they belong to and if they are really yours. Or if there are different ideas and beliefs that can serve you better.

Paying attention to what brings you joy, and not what you think should bring you joy. Things you want to be doing in the way you want to do them. Not the way society, or an employer, or a government, teacher or authority tells you to.

Paying attention to the way you learn. The way you organise information and respond to the world. Your strength and weaknesses. Your skills.

Most important of all, identifying the different parts of you and the unique way they come together.

Uncovering and remembering the core essence of you. And deciding never to let that go.

03 | Understand The Natural Made World

When you understand the systems of the human-world and how it works. And you understand yourself, it will begin to become clear why you can’t fit in.

It will be clear why constantly trying to fit in and deny who you are will never work. And you’ll need to know what to do instead.

This is where understanding the natural world and how universal law and a higher intelligence works.

If you’ve got this far and are ready to roll your eyes at a higher power, pause…

Consider what is it that makes the grass grow, and the sun shine? What is it that allows a sperm and an egg to merge, and then a cell to split and multiply, over and over, to form a body and organs, a heart that beats and give you life? It’s not human beings. It’s something bigger, greater, far more intelligent, indescribable and divine than us.

There is a greater intelligence governing all of this. It’s not religion or spirituality – they are human-made systems that suppress the greatness of this intelligence. I call it Source.

When you understand the systems of the human-world and how it works, and you understand yourself, you’ll want to explore the natural systems that govern creativity, imagination, empathy and life.

The Challenge Of Oscillation

The biggest challenge for me, still, constantly, is oscillation.

Of understanding these things and swinging back and forth between them. Between being true to myself and pulling away from the human-made world and finding joy. To be swung back into the systems by the pendulum and the need to pay the bills and keep a roof over my head.

To find myself, months later, coming up for breath and swinging back again, swayed by the life force of divine intelligence again, pulling me in a different direction.

I haven’t yet figured it all out. I haven’t found the perfect balance. Maybe I never will. Maybe this is part of the game of life.

But it’s better, way better.

The oscillations are getting less in either direction, they’re spreading out, and becoming more even.

From one perspective, life is about delving deep into understanding and integrating those three realms or parts, of what makes this human experience:

  • The external, man-made human realm on Earth – in all it’s messy, gory, corrupt and contradictory glory.
  • Myself, yourself, the work of art in constant progress – as both a physical human and a spiritual being.
  • The natural world, the divine intelligence that governs it all.

Evening Out…

I guess that’s where I’ve been the past year, caught in an oscillation that took me out of flow and this space of creativity and expressing my true self.

But I’m back, at least for now. With an urge to write and create and explore some more – in a more authentic way than before. In a way that removes more of the facade and is more aligned with who I am.

I’m here to figure out how to live more authentically in a world that encourages sameness and mediocrity.

I don’t know how far I’ll get, but of that is of interest, then make sure you stick around and subscribe.

The choice is yours…
