I want to share something with you that I read somewhere and it always intrigued me.
Let us take you on a journey.......
All of us here are gathered in a meadow at the base of a mountain. We are home and we are all playing together in perfect love. A dear brother
approaches and says, "Would anyone here like to play a new Game?"
"What kind of Game?" You ask. "Is it like the ones we play now?"
"No," he replies. "It is like nothing we have ever done before. It will be an elaborate Game with many props and disguises. We will wear veils so
that we can no longer see or re-member our true nature, even the veil will be hidden from view. Then we will start the Game and begin to re-member.
This veil will be so effective that you will forget not only who you are; you will even forget home. Even as we pass each other on our paths, we will
look into each other's eyes and not recognize one another. The veil will be so effective that many will look around at the props and disguises and
truly believe that is all there is. You will retain all of your powers, yet you will not re-member how to use them or that they are even there.
"The Game will be played in phases and before we start each phase of the Game we may place as many reminders in our path as we wish, to help us
re-member. Be advised to place many reminders, for most of you will rationalize them away easily. We will choose the time and place of our entrances
and exits on the Gameboard. We will also set up circumstances and lessons we wish to complete while we are under the veil. A tally will be kept and
points will accumulate from one phase to the next. This point system will only be used by you to determine what will be included in your next phase.
You will not be able to remember from one phase to the next, yet, once mastered, certain attributes may be carried forward into the next phase. You
will always carry your core essence and personality, yet you will not re-member that it passes with you through the veil into every phase.
"Humor will always be a reminder that passes unchecked through the veil, and if we find you getting too serious we will tickle your funny bone as a
reminder that this is only a Game. There will also be many masters available along the way to help us if we wander too far from the path. Oh yes, I
almost forgot an important part of the Game... at all times there will be Free Choice. You have complete choice in all matters, you may even choose
not to play the Game, or to call in a substitute. You may choose to hide, or you may choose to seek, it is entirely up to you.
"On the Gameboard there will be polarity. This has to do with the mechanics of the Gameboard itself, and will be a necessary component as it provides
the contrast needed. However, polarity will taint your vision. Through eyes tainted with polarity, you perceive things as Up or Down, Light or Dark,
Good or Bad, Love or Fear and Right or Wrong. Do not let this fool you, it is only illusion.
"We will all leave our higher aspects of ourselves in a special place for the duration of the Game, otherwise the Game would be much too easy. Your
higher self will be available to you at all times. Your challenge will be to learn to access it, and to re-member that it exists as part of yourself.
You may choose special loved ones to ride on your shoulder to advise you during the Game. Again, re-membering that they even exist will be a big part
of the Game itself.
"The goal of the Game will be to see how many can re-member who they are, where they are from, and what powers of creation they have. Once you
re-member, then you may re-merge with your higher self and re-create home on the other side of the veil to demonstrate that you have fully
"So who wants to play?"
