Solitaire is a game that gets old really fast. Few people can be both the opponent and champion and feel successful and sustain enthusiasm for playing a game for long… all by them self. It gets boring without some obstacle, some hurdle, some opponent, to execute.
As humans, we CRAVE challenges. We REQUIRE opposition in order to flex our mental or physical sinews and figure out a solution to maneuver through that obstacle. We look for heroes.
We are programmed to Become Heroes!
This earthly experience is an opportunity for EMOTIONAL adventures. We are here to MASTER our emotions and our environment, realizing the ADVANCED Beings that we are. To do that, everyone goes through a type of amnesia during birth where we forget to some degree WHO We Are. Thus, the mortal “game” is set up: We become “opponents” for each other. 🙂
Since this question stems from my original answer to: https://www.quora.com/What-is-something-that-you-always-do-but-no-one-ever-notices/answer/Kimberly-Davis-Wallis
Realize that you NEED these other people to “test and challenge” you. On a deep soul level, you have called them forth! Although during “smooth sailing” you are able to maintain your peace and be the kind, humane being that you are, these very people are your opportunity to get stronger, better, more solid in your emotional strength. During the “easy experiences”, you are just “coasting.” These particular people and situations that “push your buttons” are your opportunity to “flex your emotional muscles,” dig in deep to your Source, and gain further strength. This is your moment to expand your boundaries and gain more soul treasure! This is your moment on center stage… even if you’re by your self.
If you can, remember that you ARE “always being watched.” Picture yourself as the star of a Cosmic Reality Show. YOU are the main character! You are in your element in these very situations, proving the light, the strength, the depth of character that you possess.
Decide: NOTHING, NO ONE is going to take away my power. I will maintain my peace always. NOTHING will topple me. No matter how “blind-sided” an experience is, no matter how many “hit me all at once”… I WILL maintain my emotional solidity. I will dig down deep during that moment of “testing.” I will take a deep breath, and I will deal with it as an Advanced Being with a resolve of steel and a heart of brilliant gold. I will be the force that this world needs.
Here are Ten Core Commands to Program into your self. If you memorize these and ponder upon them several times a day, you will prepare your self before the “challenges and tests” and find that they will assist you in your very “hour of need”… whether that need be a natural disaster, a work-related emergency, a relationship earthquake, a physical trauma, or whatever. If you get a special notebook, record these morning and night in your most beautiful and empowering handwriting, use time each day meditating about these characteristics and how you will use them in your life, even putting a melody to the words… THEY WILL BE PROGRAMMED INTO YOUR HEART AND MIND… and will be your “Auto-Pilot” in time of need. Here they are:
- Let your light shine by your example… that others might see and feel warmed and renewed through you.
- Never become angry at ANY person in ANY situation.
- Respect another’s opinions and beliefs as if they were your own.
- Stay faithful to relationship commitments, whether these relationships be personal or business, especially promises of fidelity.
- Do not fight back in ANY situation.
- Love your enemies by never thinking of another as your enemy, but as an equally valuable individual.
- Do not give to be known for giving, but be known for giving.
- Live simply, reducing your needs and things. As you do, allow yourself to be a dispenser of provisions for others in need.
- Seek for peace and happiness instead of money and success.
- Do not judge another in ANY way or set a standard or measure for what another person should be or live up to.
As you go through your life, do not despair from whatever your current level of emotional maturity. Even if you were the very OPPOSITE of emotionally mature, don’t despair. It does not matter if you are “hard-hearted” now! It does not matter if you are beginning from the first step of being in control of your emotions! It doesn’t matter if you are an emotional basket-case! Be a TRANSFORMER! Envision some of the recent block-buster movies where the “Clark Kent” character took that moment to completely change into the Super Hero who then changed the world. YOU *BE* that Transformed from a pathetic out-of-control emotional low-life… to the *TRIUMPHANT STARRING ROLE*! You be the Advanced Being that has now come to earth to show the way through the chaotic anger and meanness that humanity is now experiencing… into the BEAUTY OF STRENGTH and EMOTIONAL MATURITY that have been hiding like a seed withIN YOU!
By programming in those above ten commands and practicing them, over and over and over and over again, recording your experiences and progress in a daily journal… you WILL be able to “always bless people and love people around (you)”! You WILL be STRONG. You will be a LIGHT to give others Hope and a VISION of How They can, also, bless people and love all others… correctly.
As you do this, you will find your opponents changing from your “enemies” or challenges into your very friends and allies. The game changes one experience at a time into a veritable oasis of bliss and Joy for You… and everyone!
You can do this!
I believe in you!
PLEASE… we need Each and All of us, together, to find the Power withIN and to BE WHO WE ARE!
and With HOPE….
In my pursuit of Real Truth, I have given up everything. Crawling through the “eye of the needle,” I have learned the *mysteries* and am now giving my life to assist YOU to dis-cover Who *YOU* really are, along with your unique gift to offer humanity. As you learn to seek (in the right place and with purified intent), you WILL find treasures of lasting value, along with every promised reward. Together, we will establish a society of humane beings and live life ALIVE, on PURPOSE, and with a sociality unequaled… because we will each BE and view each other as equally and profoundly DIVINE! Please… catch this Hope and Vision and join with me.
