Life is a game - you chose to play. The goal of life? ... Just like any game: TO HAVE FUN!
Been having this epiphany over the last week, and have come to some conclusions.

Imagine: Your soul or immortal spirit or whatever you wanna call it, decides to come to this universe, to this planet, to play the great game. THis time it is human life on planet earth.

As part of the game you take on a character, and your true nature is hidden behind (near) impenetrable veils. You BELIEVE you are this personality, this mind.

You BELIEVE in good and evil, in right and wrong, as these are the white and black of the board.

The goal of the game is hidden from you. Is it to learn? To succeed, to gain power, fame, glory? To help others? TO do good, and reject the temptations of evil?

I believe not! The reason youplay the game is to have FUN! it is a recreation, totally immersive and all encompassing while you are playing, but when you die, and the veils are lifted you see it for what it was! Just a game!

And how did you play?

DId you spend the whole time worried? Fearful? Did you play the part of the victim? The recluse? The debutante? The beauty? The power hungry manipulator?

Or did you play the part of the sage, and see the game for what it is, and pierce through the veils? DId you play the game with joy and happiness, and have a roaring good time?

WHen you go back, and your time in this round of the game is over, how will you appraise your performance?

I realised I would look back and think, why was I so worried all the time? WHy was I concerned with accumulating? There were many days, months years where I never felt joy in my heart! I was like the sulky child who sits in the corner and broods at many times.

NO MORE! From now on I am just going to play, and play for fun, and feel the joy of just playing the game, accepting the character I chose and having as much fun with this persona as possible.

What about you?

Good for you!

Most of you spend entirely too much time on thinking and not enough time on living.

We are here to LEARN, not here to PLAY as you claim. If life were about playing, where´s the lessons?

Good question!

Kids know, they learn THROUGH playing. We lost that ability or had it drummed out of us.

We do learn, yes, along the way as we play. We learn to play the game better, we get closer to the goal.

What is that goal? TO be in total permanenet perpetual joy, or bliss, which is the nature of the one conciousness, our source.

Gotta play to have joy. Just gotta.

Obviously you have never been tied up begging for your freedom.

If you don´t learn from play then you probably don´t learn much.

In Indian Vedic philosophy this world is the Liila, or the divine play of god.

Yeah, sure play while millions die of starving, disease, crime, corruption, war. But hey, why not, it´s just a game.

OP, you need to grow up. Trying to capture and experience happiness and joy is good but life is not a game - at least not for 99% of the world.

nice theory but got back to the drawingboard.

Your ephiphany is self-centered, like most ephipanies.

AC yes it is self centred.

Being as the self is ultimately the only thing that you can know through DIRECT experience, why not?

Would you prefer it was not self centred? Viz a viz

The purpose of life is to make sure others have fun.

But hold on... ever played a game with someone who just couldn´t have fun themselves, just wanted you to have fun?

Or a relationship where the other half surendered their desires interests and goals to ensure you were enjoying yourself?

Ruins the game. The only way for EVERYONE to have fun is if you concentrate on making the game as fun as possible for yourself first and foremost, as yourself is the only person you can affect.

And to believe otherwise is true self centredness.

That´s why i find chruistians, buddhists and all the other "unselfish" religionists so goddawfully BORING to be around.

They suck at playing the game.

I´m sure god finds them boring too.

Boring people do not go to heaven.

"Yeah, sure play while millions die of starving, disease, crime, corruption, war. But hey, why not, it´s just a game."

Oh yes, the "what about the starving and downtrodden" argument...

But what if there is no pain, what if it is a fleeting illusion, that does not affect your true self?

Your self observes. The roles we choose are chosen by us, no one else.

"OP, you need to grow up. " No you need to grow down. Boring old fuck that you are.

"Trying to capture and experience happiness and joy is good but life is not a game - at least not for 99% of the world."

So what is life then? And what a boring game it would be if everyone were happy all the time. Sorrow, death, disease, war, - they are all a part of the magical, painful, heart wrnching drama we find ourselves in.

And mind: I never mentioned that happiness was the goal. Joy can be experienced even in the midst of profound suffering, if only one realises that "this is not me".

OP, may you become one of the 99% who suffer and then you may more effectively be able to test out your theory.

You are unbelievable.

Hmm, what if there is no pain? Why not meet with that man´s whose wife was murdered and their baby cut from her stomach and abducted.

I suppose you will say, she suffered no pain, he will suffer no pain and the returned child will not suffer from the history of how it came into this world.

Put yourself in his position and speak to me of fun and games.

You think I have not suffered? I have suffered, I have been so poor that I had to beg for food, and finally to scavenge for it through rubbish bis. I have lost loved ones, I have been betrayed, I have suffered immense physical pain.

As have as you say 99% of the peoples. I would say it is more like 99.99999999999999999%

I never said there was no suffering.

I said that suffering is part of the game, an integral part. I said that we voluntarily chose to participate in a game filled with suffering, with the ultimate hope of reaching the goal: To find joy even in this.

I don´t know why you chose to play in such an obtuse mind AC.

What the OP says may well be true, only we have forgotten that it is a play and how to play. Some of the players have even become bullies and made the rest of the players suffer and cry. Such things can happen in the heat of a game.

YES AC!!! We forgot how to play!

Imagine if we all started playing nicely, enjoying ourselves, enjoying playing for plays sake.

Knowing the true goal is NOT power, money or control, we would make a better world, surely?
