Insight into the Illusion of life from a Chess perspective
Most of us live life similar to chess pieces on a board. If a chess piece had eyes .. what would they see? They would see opposition, separation, successful opportunities, etc. They would be focused on being part of a tribe, group, unifying with allies and positioning themselves against the opposing side. It would be about taking as much as possible before the other did the same or having to take directly from the other, for reasons of self preservation.
No one would ask ..”WHY?” and “what if we stopped the game and allowed all to possess an equal part of the board?…would that constitute a winning game?”. No, we are programmed to believe that one side has to win and the other looses. Its wired into our thinking, that’s just the game of life, there are casualties and the haves and have-nots, the issue is simply, strive to be on the right side, The right side equals success, approval, fame, respect.
However, when we dare to take ourselves out of the imediate, limited perspective of the chess piece, we start to see another view of the set-up. the more we zoom out It looks increasingly less intense as it once did. In fact, we start to see the limitations of our once perfect perspective and only reality. it now looks like a small part of the bigger and greater picture. It doesn’t seem as important as it once did. There could be another game at play, even bigger than the one we thought was THE ONLY GAME. Maybe there was a deception in place, only to be seen from another perspective.
Only when we start to track the evolution of the pieces on the board back to their respective origins, there is yet more clarification and confirmation of deception. First, before the pieces were carefully positioned on the board they were taken out of ONE place. Second, before that they were even colored – as if they were conditioned to become part of a separate group. Third, before that they were shaped into respective forms of importance as if they were conditioned into an identity of authority and power – and given an instruction to guard their identity and reputation that comes with it.
HOWEVER – Even before all of that … they were in fact ONE piece, from one family, from ONE SOURCE.
What a DECEPTION! .. if only it ended there, lol
Through the process of natural material ageing and deteriation. The chess pieces will at some stage in the future deteriorate (as all matter does) – inevitable change from their temporary, current form (as a chess piece) to fundamental elements such as carbon etc thus returning to ONENESS yet again. It will then evolve and change form again at some point into .. who knows what?
ARE YOU STILL CAREFULLY POSITIONED ON THE BOARD, WILLING TO PLAY THE ILLUSORY GAME of Life?
