Real learning comes about the when the competitive spirit has ceased
I seriously have difficulties with the analogy some have of life being a game.
Being deeply disinterested in most sports, one of my most difficult missions here is to deconstruct competitive society. It’s been the most amazing and mind-blowing process to have experienced someone competing with and challenging me over the past few years. With a circle behind them egging them on.
I guess the higher powers in the Akashic circle thought I should really have a taste of competition and how to deal with it in all its unwanted glory, unable to be ignored when thrust so harshly in your face by a sports-obsessed world.
Or was it The Hunger Games being re-enacted. Felt that way at times. Or even Highlander – ‘there can be only one’!
OK so it must have been a contract I wrote. In between lifetimes, I, being in my own higher power, must have agreed to go through this. To my soul, though, it’s been the equivalence of a living hellish nightmare, seemingly endless in duration. Keeping a cool head throughout admittedly wasn’t fully achieved…
Before I came here this time, I must have agreed that part of the works of compassion many of us have come here to do, for myself included holding competitive society up to the light and really showing the damage that can be done. And in that contract, I apparently had to personally experience it yet again on a deeply visceral and soul level. A task not to be taken on lightly.
It didn’t matter that I don’t believe in and deeply dislike competitions. Apparently, I agreed in this lifetime to be confronted with a challenge so fierce I could not walk away. Until I brought to light again and used the very powerful spiritual tools to enable rising above.
The enormous roadblocks in my path didn’t always actually speak to me about ME, although I have issues, for sure, but it spoke to me of global resistance to experiencing life on a whole new level. There are a number of alternate futures still within all our grasp, and we’re all stepping through the portals as we now speak.
So – how about a world of enormous personal freedom? Where any dispute ends in a win-win no matter what. A world where we meditate from the very beginning of life and this in turn brings an emotionally calm person into maturity, with self-control and an open-hearted approach to life in all its challenging diversity.
What if we took that curve-turn away from a hyper-capitalist, empty hearted and empty-eyed consumerist society. And stepped up a level into a warmer and more tender reality of social harmony, where communication involving dominance and subservience did not exist.
A place where every child has many loving parents, and when older choose their own path, what’s right for them.
A classless society where social justice and respect for each individual is written in each and every heart.
So, this is the place I want to live. I have a larger picture to paint of this, but here’s a starting place.
Meanwhile the flying monkeys and the sociopathic hive try to perpetuate the game of life and draw those of us who have walked away, back in. But it’s not just a fun childish game.
It’s actually a game of life and death. A game where anything goes – black magic, technological surveillance and hacking, theft, lies, reputation smearing and other unlovely permutations.
This usually results in significant loss of health and emotional wellbeing with ultimately deadly consequences. It’s a serious matter and no longer to be taken lightly. The game of win and lose is also in reality, a game of life and death.
The culture that idolises the martial warrior, conflict, war, the cult of competition, and the predator and hunted, and other vicious ‘games’, will continue to play on.
It’s just not a reality I choose to participate in. I don’t really understand it on a soul level – it doesn’t align with any higher purpose. It creates enormous suffering and sickness for many and I don’t see the gains, except for some momentary endorphin high the players and observers
receive when one person is raised above another.
It’s seriously time for social transformation and those ways really won’t cut it anymore. We can talk about planetary spiritual ‘ascension’, but there needs to be a reality check about ground base, and how it feels. Do we really want to lose Mother Earth due to endless conflict and ceaseless carelessness? And be forced to move to Mars? I think not kitty.
But truthfully, real deconstruction of power games begins with language, as thoughts become the words that create our reality.
Either this current social structure continues to degrade through war, conflict and loveless endless consumerism into ultimate corruption and destruction.
Or we can take societal transformation into our hands and hearts, knowing it begins in the realm of ideas and thoughts. And essentially create a new reality through a gently radical r/evolution of the wheel, to the change that’s so needed.
