No one ever told me when I was alone
They just thought I'd know better.. better...
The hardest part
this troubled heart has ever yet been through now,
Was heal the scars
that got their start inside someone like you now,
For had I known or I'd been shown back
when how long it'd take me,
To break the charms that brought me harm
and all but would erase me.
Now I know you better, You know I know better ...
~ Guns ‘N Roses ~ Better ~
Some say life is a game and some of us have been dealt a “good” hand and others a “bad”hand. And this hand will determine the inevitable outcome. Yet what if we don’t have to play this game where there’s always a loser and a victor. What if we decide we are all winners?
Fortunately, we have been given the gift of consciousness. We have learned and created means to better express ourselves ... and these different forms of expression have been born in a communal effort to materialize our hopes, aspirations, morals, ethics, inspiration, and dreams. How we understand this truth has everything to do with what we see manifested in our everyday perceptions of reality.
So depending on the hand dealt to us determines our individual experience of this communal creation ... or does it? What if it depends on how we play the game instead ... similar to making our own path, we would have an equal opportunity to succeed, regardless of our cards.
Consider creating a new game together by changing the rules and stakes ...
So where’s the problem ... well some of us have no idea we have the option of creating a new game. We feel we have to do the best we can with what we got, and that’s how we live. We take in a situation, which might not be the best for us as a given, and don’t question it. Just deal with it, in the best possible way.
Yet, there is so much power within us - once we realize our own potential, we decide how we play our hand, our own path, our own reality. We decide better. And this won’t come by anyone telling us we can, but by trying it out ourselves.
We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand ~ Randy Paush
