A beautiful excerpt from a book I'm reading currently!
THE GAME OF LIFE
"Like any game, the experience of life in this physical realm has rules. When we become aware of these rules or universal laws then we’re much more likely to be successful while playing the game. The main rule of the game is the law of cause and effect; which means the universe mirrors back to us, the cognitions that are most dominant in our mind. Our thoughts, feelings and belief systems have incredible power, as they are the cause of the effects or circumstances that manifest in our reality.
In becoming conscious of this law, and by sowing the creative seeds of your preference, you’re capable of playing the game of life on a conscious level. You need to tame your imagination; however, as you’re just as capable of creating hell for yourself and others as you are capable of creating heaven.
“Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns or figs of thistles?” – Matthew 7:16
Everyone’s already creating their reality, they’re already playing the game of life, but unfortunately, most aren’t conscious of this fact. They’re playing the game unconsciously, but how can one be successful in a game they don’t even know that they’re playing? All successful people have a positive and dynamic attitude. They understand that everything starts with their mindset. They sow the seeds of success in their mind and are rewarded for the fruit of their labours through the circumstances their optimism inevitably brings into manifestation."
