I remember so many times my old man would head out the door to work saying something like... "gotta get back in the game" or "The rat race never ends" as if to brace himself for something unpleasant he had to face yet again. Being a youngster at the time; I of course lacked the understanding of what it was like for him to enter that daily grind, but over the years the cumulative effects were clear enough to see. With a few added years under my belt I realized just how wide spread this notion was; of life being just one big game... and it bothered me a bit on account of all the years of hearing how precious and sacred life is. This duality continued to perplex me as I made my way in life and in the fullness of time I came to understand why so many feel like they got thrust into an endless game called life; with no referees, no owners manual and rules that change without notice. The Rat Race.
I had come to see that not only did most folks buy into this 'game mentality', but that society itself is designed to reinforce that notion in nearly every application. Consider how we are programmed to embrace competition as a way of being superior to others. Consider the many verbal ways we mutually reinforce that mindset with comments such as; "Life is a game and whoever has the most toys at the end wins" or the idea that something you want is "Fair Game"... and then there are even mantras of competition in romance & love what with the ideas of "Starter Husband" and "Trophy Wife" added to our lexicon without so much as a murmur of dissent. The parameters for this game are established for us, and we have no say in that unless we become so good at the game we actually become one of the elite gamesters, but that is a really exclusive club, with membership currently frozen...no new members are being considered at this late stage of the game. See what I mean about it being embedded into our everyday language. It's so subtle, and the programming so pervasive that most folks go their whole life without noticing any of this. They just keep on playing the game hoping to grab that brass ring! See, It's everywhere once you train your mind to see it; It's everywhere, it's an artificial, fabricated reality, which we've been conditioned for generations to only see it as normal.
In 1860 Milton Bradley introduced a new board game called The Checkered Game of Life, which over time became shortened to just "Life." The game is so popular it is still in production today and continues to be among the most popular of parlor games, especially in
America. When you pause to
think about it, aren't almost all games we play designed to reinforce this
notion of separation and competition?
Even in solitaire we are competing against ourselves. I cannot think of many games humans play
which are based on cooperation and unity.
Some might suggest that this spirit of competition is good for us, and
in some ways I suppose it is, but mostly it is just another mechanism of
control by those who seek to determine our collective destiny without our
collective consent. To maintain this
control over so many people it takes constant indoctrination and reinforcement
at every level of society, and a show of force to ensure compliance; which
exactly describes the world we live in today.
Of course the rat race becomes more complex the longer one plays it. When engaged with so many others on a daily basis who are blindly locked into the game, you get sucked into playing along, forming a consensus reality collective where each member has to keep playing the game by whatever set of rules are currently in effect. Before you know it you become leveraged into continuing to play the game, because everything in the rat race is crafted intentionally to do just that. Job, house, car, family, school and so on to infinity & beyond....once you're hooked, they got ya.
As we have seen in recent weeks, the great shining lie pushes back against the great awakening now underway by trying to pull us all back into the fear mode. To be sure, the non-stop saber rattling over North Korea and raging gun control 'debates' are designed to keep our collective minds off of what 'they' are doing to the world banking system; but they are also intended to draw us back into that mindset of fear now that the game is coming to what many are considering to be the final phase before the introduction of an even darker game just down the road from where we now find ourselves. Just like in the Matrix movie, the game of life is all around us, it is every where, and nowhere. We can see it everywhere we look, yet never find it if we search for it. Also just like the movie, the game of life is a deceptive fabrication pulled over our eyes to prevent us from seeing a vastly different reality which can free us from this game. All we need do to find the exit from this game is to pay attention to the things the powers that be don't want us knowing about. Just like to find out who controls you, just look to see who you aren't allowed to criticize. The Rat Race abides.
With the frequency of false flag events increasing, and the eerie similarities to 911 what with the deadly poison Ricin allegedly sent to several government officials right after the Boston Marathon bombing; I think it is now safe to say that the dreaded endgame may be upon us. You see, the game isn't going exactly the way they want it to just now, what with this spiritual revolution turning into a raging prairie fire under their collective asses; so they are turning up the heat in every way they can to beat us back into submissive compliance. Remember, it's the nail that sticks up that gets hammered down.
Don't know about you, but anymore I get a bit nervous whenever I hear of another government terror drill planned, as that seems to be the first best way to detect a coming false flag attack. And did you get a look at Obama's face at the press conference after his gun control issues were all voted down? There simply was no concealing the anger on that mans face as the elites continue to be exposed for the parasites they are. Over the last few posts I have been saying that I feel the endgame is very near. Are you feeling me now? I think we have just turned onto that dark country road where the lights all go out and the scarecrows come to life...does anyone else hear the banjo music?
Once fully awake within the game many people find continuing to play it to be an intolerable situation and begin searching for the aforementioned invisible exits. Of course the exits are few, and well concealed from normal view which often ushers in the element of depression when the thought keeps coming around, that there may be no way out. The great shining lie wants your desperation and fear, it feeds on that stuff with an insatiately growing appetite. When we are not timely or forthcoming with our fear and despair the great shining lie must elicit it from us or perish, which is why there will always be alcohol, drugs and TV with which to feed your depression... and that, my friends, is the exit from the game. Refuse to play, refuse to feed the beast, starve that sucker out. Once you see the game and the beast for what they really are and the destiny they have in mind for the rest of us; playing the game is no longer an option.*
It is said that most humans will not change until the pain of remaining the same becomes intolerable, and that is as good a definition as I can think of to describe both the "Arab Spring" revolution and the revolution of consciousness currently unfolding across Earth, with the demise of the Kali Yuga. This time of chaos and turmoil is a normal and natural thing occurring as Earth passes from one great age to another, as we just have done.
It is the time when the pain of remaining the same awakens us to the vaster spiritual realms in our search for an exit. Alas, many discover upon embarking on the spiritual path, that it also is very complex, and having rules not readily discerned by the casual observer. Beyond these discoveries are a myriad of aspects of Self which we must also meet and contend with; such as our inner child, ego, critical parent, nurturing parent,& higher self not to mention, spirit guides, guardians, Angels & the occasional demon or two. Naturally it doesn't end there, as to gain any footing or progress in our spiritual quest, we must also embrace our shadow self, which can be among the most frightening encounters some will ever have.
Indeed at times the spiritual path may seem to be just another game we bought into playing, but the difference lies in making actual progress as an authentic human being, which one never quite accomplishes in the rat race game. Yes there are diversions to tempt us off the path, and pitfalls to teach us what we thought we already knew; but just remember in this game your energy and effort are feeding you, not the beast! As you do this you become more confident and grow stronger. On the spiritual path you have escaped the hamster wheel of the game of life and entered into a labyrinth of self discovery where true progress can be seen & measured; and you now have a sense of where your destination is. As your perceptions change you will see the counterfeit reality for what it is, a dying fabricated system of enslavement, and this will fuel your determination to never be pulled back into it.
The exit from the game of life is never free, or cheap. Your ticket out may well cost you everything you have clung to up to this point. Waking up and opting out of the rat race will usually take your job as it's first payment, especially if it a particularly nasty job which demeans and robs other people or just feeds the beast and nothing more. When you begin pointing out things like chemtrails, stolen elections, a growing police state and GMO food to your family & friends it will make them nervous, it will alienate them from you. It may be that those closest to you will be unready or unwilling to exit the rat race game of life. How's that for some pressure? Like I said, it's everywhere, and the tendrils of control have had a very long time in which to totally ensnare us in this make believe world. You are going to have to want out very badly in some cases before breaking free of the game, you may have to release loved ones to find their own way in their own time.
Upon the spiritual path to enlightenment we learn the importance of doing things at the right time and for the right reason. So when you locate this exit from the rat race game of life, don't expect it to instantly usher you into the winners circle...you will still have to work to get there, and by the time you do, you will realize that the game of life cannot be won, only played.
Until Next Time ~ Be Good to Each Other
