On the field of life you can keep playing but every now and then you have to go into the change room, have some sustenance, change your clothes and tune into the flow of the match. What wins grand finals, Super Bowls and play offs is the flow, not the individual play’s but the over all flow. How the organism of a team is working together to move an object, the ball, from one end of the field to the other. Sometimes the ball moves forward and sometimes it moves backward. The momentary slip of flow has the other team capture the ball and move it toward their end of the pitch.
This is your metaphor for life, to get in flow with the game, your game, as you ultimately are made up of lots of players. You are a team of individual part that make up the whole of you, your team. The is the player number 7, the wounded child, player number 1, the motivated inspirer, player number 5, the stayed and true work horse, player number 13, the frightened one, player number 6, the angry one and the list goes on and each of these players on their own will influence the game in certain ways but individually can sabotage the game. Your job is not to play the game with any one of them, your job is to be the captain and leader of them by rallying them together to begin to flow as a team. In the best case scenario you become the coach, no longer playing the game but watching, advising and directing the play from a vantage point that gives you perspective to make the best choice possible.
From the coaches box you can see the essential plays that need to take place, from here you can be responsible for each of the moves, not being the moves but watching the over all play and results of each of the moves. Then from this understanding you can plan and take the next best action to get the team into flow so that the ball moves closer to your goals.
Now here is the trick, stop being on the field and playing the game! Start to be the observer, the coach of the game and watch with excitement as to how the game is being played out. Which of your players is commanding the ball at any given time? Where is the inspired player? Where is the positive thinking player? Where is the action taker? Or has the scared player or the sad player or the wounded player running the game? These are all the members of the team that your call ‘I’, ‘ME’ and ‘YOU’ all just part of a bigger team that is ‘YOURSELF’. And rather than fight and struggle with each of the team members as they hold the ball, rather see the ball moving in flow towards your goal. Allow each of the team member to play their role as this is how it is to be. Do not struggle when the heavy team members have the ball know that each of them play an important part in your team and in the game of your life. Start to love the game that is being played, this is how it really works.
Rather than the focus on the individual plays begin to train your team to play a better more effective game in the flow and spirit of the game and have them work together to help you to run out the best game of your life. Have the heavy players move to the back line and protect your goal, be strong, run hard and make the tough plays while your light team members receive the ball as it moves forward to kick the winning goal. This is how the game of life is won. No one is without a balanced team complete with heavy players and light players, the people with the winning team have learnt how to harness the strength of ALL fo their players. They have trained them to play together as a team and to support the weaker players through the courage of the stronger players. They have learnt how to manage the state of those heavy players and activate the lightness of those players infused with inspired actions.
Now you can start to win the game, to celebrate the success and to revel in the joy of the life game that you are here to play. Step into the truth of this metaphor and see it now for that which it is, just a game with a team of amazing parts of your personality and make up. All good in their own way regardless of the struggle of some members. Use them all, allow them all to help you in certain situations but remember to use all of your team members and try not to feature or fight with yourself to only have the light ‘best’ players as this does not make for a very coherent and fluid team. Make friends with all of your players and learn how to have the run as a united front and a team that gets into flow so that you can continue to move the ball forward into your goals and dreams. Along the way you will kick some goals, you will miss some goals and all the time its just a game and your job is to play it!
Elevate yourself above the field and be the head coach so you can see the reality of what is going on, have the perspective of insight so you can see the truth of the play of who has the ball at any one time and where the flow is or is not in your play.
Remember all of your players are good in their own way and they are an important part of your team so you do not need to beat them in any way, but rather utilize their strength to get the ball moving forward.
Play the team YOURSELF and get them into flow because this is what wins or losses games, not the individual play of one of the members but rather the collective play of all of the members, this is what makes for a winning team.
Now in essence this is just a metaphor and the winning or losing is just an allusion as there is no losing, you can only win regardless of the feelings you may have of winning or losing. This world that you inhabit is one of binary existence and therefore you must navigate the unreality of a diagonally opposed existence. There can never be a winner or a loser there can only be the creation of ripples. The creation of a frequency that together uncovers the harmonics of a planet, of a solar system and of a universe teeming with life. You are the many strings in a universal guitar constantly playing out the song of the universe. This song is the conscious vibration of the aliveness of the bigger universal truth. And while you play the game at the ground level there is a bigger game being played out all around you. The most beautiful vibration of frequency that you have ever heard and when you are quiet you can connect with this vibration, you can feel its influence and touch its harmonic wave function. This is what you call love and it is inspired from the greatest collection of instruments of which you play your part. Love is the most unusual and miss understood frequency that there is in the universe. It is the binding matter of all things, the collective frequency that we have all created beyond time and space. Here is where you will find abundance as this is what the music of love is destined to create.
The frequency of abundance is therefore closely aligned with the frequency of love and is the next manifestation that follows. First there is love, then there is abundance and finally there is existence and life, without the first and second there can be no third. This is the father, the son and the Holy Ghost and in truth it is the mother and the father which spawn the love to create an abundance of their DNA through the son or child who then together can express the Holy Ghost, the spirit of the entire universe to continue the frequency of love expressed. For it is loves journey to be expressed and made manifest and this is the job of the son, for it is the Holy Ghost, the spirit that is the love that they refer to. This is the frequency of the universe teaming with an abundance of life, and the circle is complete, life creating life, love creating love and abundance creating abundance. This is the truth of the trinity of life, love and lived abundance.
So go train your team to play a good game. Go train your team to be in flow. Go be the frequency of love in those quiet moments of your existence and take the actions of abundance and you will see the game from a new perspective. Remember its all just a game to amuse the essence of the universe, of which you are a part of, not apart from.
