Sure, the game is frustrating. It can be utterly maddening if I try to play it by imposing my own rules on it. But the game may not recognize my rules. I can’t run this game, very possibly because there isn’t even a game in reality. The game is only a concept that helps me engage with that-which-is, as-it-is.
The more I work to engage with That-Which-Is, As-It-Is – the more I live life on life’s terms, as they say in AA – the closer I get to the ultimate secret that is no secret, because it was here all along.
The game can be a great distraction. It can distract me from engaging with the Divine, especially if I actually believe in the game. I do my best to remember that there is no game, really. In a sense, I invoke it, and I can banish it. It’s only a servant, a concept to help me engage with That-Which-Is. When that game, that concept, stops being useful, it can be discarded – or should be discarded.
When that time comes, when the game stops being useful and needs to be discarded, there is a choice. I can choose to cling to it, or I can choose to let it go. My choice.
