THE GAME OF LIFE - HOW TO DO IT
First let me say, I am not referring to the board game named "life".
I am referring to the game of real life, and believe me, it is more of a game than you realize. Of course, it is nothing to trivialize since it carries with it the onus of quite serious consequences should you play it recklessly with no consideration for the eventual outcome, but unlike other parlor games, you cannot lose at the game of life, unless of course, you consider eventual death as losing.
In truth, the game of life is loaded in your favor, and unlike the board game, in the real game of life, on deeper levels, you cannot lose, although on the surface life may seem pointless and hopeless.
You begin the game of life, not sometime after your physical birth, but before you are actually born, and even then, physical birth is an illusion that you accept and will honor for some time after you acquire and activate a fully functioning physical body. In another sense, the illusion is real, but only within the confines of your world reality, but were you viewing your reality system from elsewhere in the universe, you would be amazed to find that it does not exist.
Your physical body is something you will use while you are focused the world of matter, but you should remember, you are an identity, not a body. You borrow your body, materializing it from earth elements and when you are done with it, you will return it to the earth, a symbolic realization that your consciousness is not dependent on a physically materialized form and an understanding that your body will be utilized by other consciousness in constructing other physical forms in the future.
Consciousness existed before the first particle of physical matter was formed, and in fact, the first particle of physical matter was formed by consciousness, not the other way around.
You will continue to exist the same in almost every way after death except that you will possess a different kind of body, a body without the familiar physical characteristics, without weight or bulk, yet a body appearing just as real and functional as the past physical body. You will retain your memories, your emotions, your acquired knowledge and wisdom. You do not retain the physical stuff of the previous personality. And the past ego will go its own way as a completely new personality is formed.
I have mentioned this before and will so again, since it is not well understood even among those who know the truth about reincarnation. When the newly reincarnated personality is ready for rebirth back into the physical world, all of the aforementioned traits are retained, but the previous ego withdraws and a completely new ego is formed around the retained identity, still possessing many of those same traits of the previous personality.
You are not your physical body, you just materialize one for use manipulating in the physical world. If it were not for this miraculous ability of consciousness to cause the swarming and acquisition of atoms, cells and molecules, you would be flitting around the world naked, devoid of cellular structure in a dreamlike body with form but not substance and you would probably be featured in a reality show about ghost hunters.
It is important that I make clear that you are not now, never were and never will be your physical body, and frankly, I can't for the life of me see why the human race tends to pay so much attention to and so much of your hard earned treasure preparing, worshiping and disposing of a pile of discarded physical matter after death, totally devoid of its directive consciousness and vacant of identity.
Once you have begun assembling a new body, meaning once you have begun to accrete an actual physical form while still a fetus in your mothers womb, the game of life has already begun long before, and you might be tempted to believe that your presence in the womb is your first life experience, but that would be a wrong assumption, and here I must clear up something that is quite important to understand.
There are two very different origins for a newly created fetus and the following life experience will be greatly influenced by which is the case for each new personality. First, let me dispense with one of these options since we will not be too involved with this birth origin at this time, other than to mention it in passing.
There are obviously many differently evolved personalities in the world at any given time. Some are returning after many previous earth lives, they will be the more evolved, wise and knowledgeable among you, the teachers, the leaders, the prophets.
It is also quite obvious that there are newer personalities entering the earth physical system reincarnational cycle for the first time, and their inexperience will be noticeably different since they will be somewhat bewildered by life's many challenges. They will not have yet learned how to handle great amounts of energy, channeling it into beneficial events, and so their life experience will seem to be tainted, at least until they gain their footing in this new world.
For the new personalities, life will be struggle since they are learning from scratch. This is their first lifetime in the earth reality, even though they may have emerged out of a weaker, less evolved system where a minimum of self awareness is required, but this will be their first experience with a strong self-aware ego and it will take them a while to acclimate to this kind of reality.
For them, their involvement in advance preparations for entrance into the earth reality is kept to a minimum, since they have had no previous ego aware experience. In the cases of totally new ego aware personalities, the inner self takes care of the details so there is no undue stress and the emergence is cushioned for their first real ego aware life.
So, we will assume for the purposes of this discussion, that you are one of the more evolved returning consciousnesses. You actually began your earthly journey, or shall we say, the game of life, long before the egg was fertilized and you were well prepared to be born into a world of material experience through your prior close psychic association with your future parents. In other words, you had made advance preparations; responsibilities unconsciously understood and accepted by you and your parents and others who will be involved in the game with you. The way had been prepared in advance, so to speak.
You had already chosen your future gender, race, and general place of birth, possible physical challenges and a generalized plan for your future life. None of this is left to chance, neither is it pre-ordained and written in stone and room is always left for maneuverability and change along the way.
Now, there is a time between lives before a new incarnation that is allotted to the personality for reflection of his/her previous life experience. Past problems are considered, new corrective future actions contemplated. There are teachers who will give consul to help you understand the errors in your past performance, classes to attend and much to learn before jumping into a new body in a new life experience.
It should be noted that there is no specified time duration between death of a personality and the day of rebirth or reincarnatrion. There is then no specified period between incarnations but there are some advantages to adherence to certain governing factors. The time after death and before a rebirth is spent in an "in-between" kind of learning dimension, not one of permanence, but one offering the survivor personality the opportunity to gain considerable knowledge about his past and future existences before plunging into the next life.
This duration spent in the "in-between" dimension can be as short as measured in weeks, or in hundreds of years, but it is not advisable to wait too long between lives since the attraction to the physical system begins to wane, making the re-entrance more difficult.
An average time spent in the in-between area might be about 50-100 years, but as much as 300 years. Another consideration is the rapidly changing world, which the newly reincarnated personality must deal with after re-emergence in the physical system after a long absence. Things change, and sometimes radically enough to make readjustment difficult.
In the final analysis, you are the one who decides when you are ready to be born again and take on a new personality. It is not widely known, and barely understood, that the new personality that is to be born is not the same personality that recently has recently died.
There is sometimes a great sadness as the survival personality steps aside from the rebirth process and the new personality organizes itself, since the identity must at least for some time forget all that he has learned in previous lives, forgetting most of past accumulated knowledge to once again become a helpless, vulnerable baby opening its eyes in a new world.
The new personality will be once again facing earth challenges, but this time around the past knowledge and memories that are now encoded in his genetic structure will act as instinctual guideposts and past knowledge will begin to be gained, but this time around, at a much faster pace.
The survival personality assists in the arrangements for the birth of the new personality into the physical system (Earth), and then steps aside so a complete new personality will be born. This new personality carries all of the past memories and past experience of the survival personality encoded within the genetic structure, so no knowledge or memories are ever lost or misplaced.
There are rules to the game of life that you will play again and again until you learn the game well.
The rules are simple really and they are thus:
You must forget that you wrote the script for your life before you were born, the game that you are now involved in playing and acting out your own life drama that you authored.
You must forget that you have played the game before, perhaps many times.
You must temporarily give up all conscious learned knowledge from your prior lifetimes.
You must believe and act like the physical laws of your world are irrefutable even though most of them are not.
You must believe, at least for some time that time is independent of you, and experience it as a series of consecutive moments. (When they really are not.)
You must also believe that images and other physical objects and constructions are totally independent of you. (Which they are not.)
You must believe that there is no support or help available and that your actual survival depends on a tooth and claw "survival of the fittest" concept. (Which it is not.)
You must come to understand the eternal nature of your identity and to some extent, lose the fear of extinction from death.
These faux physical rules will begin to fall by the wayside as you grow, expand the amount of reality that you can perceive and evolve your consciousness. In other words you will begin to see chinks in the armor as the rules begin to lose their fierce hold on your perceptions and to a great extent, you will begin to question their validity.
The rules of the game only affect you in relation to the level of your advancement. Truly advanced, evolved beings are less affected by the physical rules. Jesus was one who was not so affected and neither were some of the other great prophets.
