This is a story about a game of Life, the original game of life not the one in a box although some say they’re both in a box at least until the choice is made to step outside the box.
This story begins with our adventurers already committed to a segment of the game as they progress through the unseen maze of life. Each player must accept being in a state of forgetfulness otherwise the game would be too easy to complete. The complexity of the playing field is a maze of such proportion even this is not seen especially with the players having limited vision and perception. Having created a playing field with hidden aspects veiled from plain sight makes this a most complicated and challenging game of skill requiring the players to reenter the game a great many times to acquire the considerable understanding which is needed.
The game pieces themselves are well disguised as ordinary objects found in the maze. To discern them takes close inspection and many times introspection to find any hidden meaning which may be concealed there. Even then the significance may not be known at first until more puzzle pieces are gathered creating a larger image which then brings an epiphany on some scale.
While our adventurers are busy doing seemingly mundane tasks playing this game has another group which is also participating in the game. To most players this group is unseen and unsuspected until they’ve progressed through many levels of the game. Seen or unseen this group is always there attempting to help the players to attain their next goal. Usually this group is called Guidance. The rules of our game prohibits Guidance from making any direct contact with the players until the player give permission for Guidance to assist them. To do this a player must first sense the presence of Guidance using intuition before asking to receive assistance or any direct communication can be established. This is a catch in the game, a player must know Guidance is there without any outside proof. Even without a player’s awareness Guidance is still doing as much as possible to arrange game pieces where they can be found, even moving them to a better place when they’ve gone unnoticed. Without the awareness of Guidance most players do their best in managing the game while they work seemingly alone.
Guidance has a unique advantage in our game as they can see the entire maze knowing where each path will lead our player. They also have an inventory list of sorts knowing what our players have found or learned and what is still to be located. With this and the ability to see the entire maze Guidance organizes the journey of our players to the degree each player will allow.
As our players learn to hear the suggestions of Guidance the clues and game pieces become noticed on a greater level due to increased spiritual growth. As the players put these pieces together they gain a better understanding of what each piece means and a greater vision of the journey becomes known. All the while as our player work with Guidance to learn, they themselves begin to see the maze for what it is. Even the game itself becomes more understandable.
Knowing how guidance works is very important to understanding the information offered. Guidance cannot just come out and give us the answers to most of the questions we would ask. Some, yes, but for the most part we must figure it out for ourselves, this is the learning process. For this reason a trail of bread crumbs leads us to the clues we need to better understand the challenge we’re working on. That said at times we may be misdirected so we’ll take a path we wouldn’t have taken just so we’ll find something important. Remember, there’s a lot Guidance can’t tell us. Misdirecting us as to why it’s important to do something may get us to where we need to be for a reason they couldn’t tell us before we get there. It’s all part of the rules for our game.
Guidance is always leaving a trail of bread crumbs for us to follow. If we’re aware and looking for these clues it creates a new dynamic in our game of life. All of this points out something to know, we’re more than a bunch of singular entities on a speck of dust in the enormous universe. We’re here taking part in a greater plan. We are watched over and assisted at every moment if we’ll only see and accept the help which is offered in unconditional love. Above all, know that Guidance has an incredible sense of humor. While we learn who we really are they like to have fun joking with us whenever it’s appropriate.
