Dude, it's a Game.
An inner game, played between you and your identity.
You’re not who you think you are. You are who you think other people think you ought to be.
That’s still not who you really are. You are so much more than that.
And, you’ve probably got a sense of that… though maybe you haven’t fully remembered, yet.
You are all there is. In a sense.
But you think of yourself as the human “you”… the “identity” known as you.
But, that’s only part of who you are. It’s a perspective.
Actually, all the little perspectives you hold of your “self” and what you think other people think of you…
What you were taught about who you are and what it means to be who you are…
These are all slightly different perspectives of “you.”
And taken all together, they form your identity or who you think you are which informs how you show up in the world.
This “you” that we’re talking about, the perceived you, all the perspectives that make up your identity.
These “perspectives” are all stories, memories, programming and conditioning.
All of which “seems” to be very “real” and many people live their lives as though the identity they wield in the world is the truth, the very nature, of who they are.
This is part of the illusion.
A core part, but a part nonetheless. And, one that we can change.
Our identity is a set of “truths” we’ve agreed to about who we are.
Whether we agreed to them knowingly or not, it’s who we act as in the world.
And, you may very well be tickled pink about who you think you are…
Some people aren’t at all.
While others are mostly pleased with who they are.
Many of us, if given a magic wand, would certainly change some things about ourselves or at the very least, our experience.
Dude, it’s a Game…
And you can…
It’s not so much a “magic wand” though, more like having the cheat codes to a video game.
And, at that, it’s not cheating.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
If you knew you could be anything, what would you be?
And, why does it seem some of us follow that path and end up exactly as “planned” and others of us don’t?
I went to school (grade school) with a bunch of kids.
A few of them grew up building and living their dream life.
Most of us didn’t.
Sure, some of us are happy, many of the people I went to school with, if they were being honest, would probably give their life a 70% or an 80%… some maybe even a 90%
Few people I know would say they are living an A+ life every day and that life is like a magic dream where everything is amazing…
But, if a few can… why isn’t everyone?
Some are playing the Game using the cheat codes… many of them don’t even know it, they just weren’t conditioned not to.
If you could, would you?
If you knew how to use them (cheat codes), what would your life be like?
What would you be like? Who would you be?
