Every day I get to choose whether I want to be an adventurer, a student, a victim or a designer in my life. There are basically 4 windows on reality and I can willfully choose to ‘look through’ any or all of those at any given moment. Maybe this is truly the arena of free will!
1) Life is random, I have no control and I have to react to survive and only the fittest and most aggressive make it…it is basically told as a tragedy and I am the victim. It is a sad and potentially dangerous place. I probably will need a gun! No one is in charge.
2) Life is a test and has right and wrong answers; I learn and get better and grow in wisdom and consciousness and probably if I don’t get it right, I’ll have to come back and live it again until I do or go to a penalty box or winner’s circle. I am a student in God’s Universe and there are rules to follow. It helps to have a textbook! God is in charge.
3) I am a participant in the adventure of life and can influence and create the life I am living by choosing my perspective and thoughts, managing my emotions, being surprised at the mystery and magic of daily living; choose the victim role or student role or participant role consciously. Magical thinking becomes ‘think positive.‘ I am in charge of my life but not other’s lives.
4) I’m a designer in God’s MMOG. (Massive Multiplayer Online Game) I choose and design my life as writer, producer, director, star, talent scout all for the purpose of enlightenment and evolution. Everyone else is a player and we co-create this ‘game’ in real time for the purpose of transformation. It is a quantum reality of potential, choice and purpose. Each day I bloom in the cosmos (the spiritual internet)…there are no ‘extras’ in God’s play or in my life and everybody is a star.
Sheldon Kopp has said that “Life isn’t about anything.” Maybe it is just about choosing which starring role I am going to play today in my own movie…
