04 A life without playing the game
I think everyone is the same in essential aspects.
I have an ego. I want to be happy and healthier. If I observe the other people, everybody seems the same. Nobody wants to suffer. Not only me but everyone.
I have fear. I sometimes want to ignore what is happening in the world. It looks like some want to cause fear by creating catastrophic events. When I see many people reacted the events with fear, I can see that everybody has fear. Not only me but everyone.
I have a desire. I want to enjoy practicing healing. I want even to make it successful to benefit everyone. When I see many people are working for a better life standard, it is not only me but everyone.
Everybody is the same. As long as we were born as a human, we have the same program in our DNA. And it looks like we play the same game, it is the competition in society. The rule is easy. If you feel you are superior to somebody, you are okay. If you don’t, you need to get the same level at least or higher preferably. Fashion, job title, salary, house, car, children’s school, you can find it anywhere.
What is worse, many industries in the world stimulate our ego, fear, and desire for making the profit and intensify our competition. But significant point is that everybody fails in this game. Not only me but everyone.
Is there any win-win situation for us? Let’s look at our body cells. I learned a body contains 30 to 40 trillion cells. But none of the cells compete with each other but try to make a harmony to sustain one body. They do not compete but corporate. Don’t you think 7.6 billion people on earth live just like our body cells, it will be a solution for something big?
How can we do that? I think many great masters have already given us the simple answer. They say let’s be kind each other. We are the same human being. Let’s have compassion each other. We want the same thing, such as happiness. We are all the same at this point.
If we keep playing this game, we will be exhausted and lose in the end. Nobody keeps winning. Even if one could win longer than an average, the man would suffer from the other reasons by winning.
Competition is conflicting. Conflict is suffering. It’s also a failure regarding being happy. Instead, we become kind and compassionate each other. We use this game as our self-realization and self-development.
Then, I believe something we didn’t expect will happen. Our concern about giving up our life standard by giving up competition will be dissolved. New unexpected and better life standard will appear. Yes, we need to learn a lot to make it come true. Not only us but the majority of people has to be ready for it. But it is possible. We know it’s possible, but we are just programmed not to think about it. The first step is to know yourself. I will write this topic next blog.
