My dear, this world, its laws, our perceptions, are such a minute part of existence.—Hafiz
I see that life is a game. I didn’t know this so I would take life seriously, think that I couldn’t handle it, and thus I would fling myself onto the altars of the lower chakras. I would seek sex and romance, gorge on food, work like crazy to obtain security, and try to up-level my family. All of this because I didn’t know that I am Love.
I now know that the true me sits high above all of this play of duality, untouched, joyful, steady, fluid—whole. I can revel in the true me, in the Master Power that I am, untouched by the wins and losses on the ever-changing lower playing field. I am Soul, the very spark of God—omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent.
When I stay centered in the Beloved, I always win.
I recently shot this photo while playing in the Jemez Mountains of northern New Mexico.

Ah, when we realize that what is real about us, what is alive, is our spirit. It is all that is eternal. Everything else … down to every electron and proton in the entire universe, and therefor also the entire universe … decays and dies. Our spirit, who we truly are, is eternal. The turmoils of this world can touch us, if we don’t want it to. Or it can devastate us if we forget who we are. What smooths the course is our love for each other and all creation.
Beautifully said, Bud. Truly, the power is in our hands through our concept of ourselves.
I love the movement in this photo, the way it draws my attention upward.
Of course I am an easy mark because I love the love that is infinitely and instantaneously available in my third eye.
Beautiful post. I fully identify with it.
How blessed we are to always be on top of the world from within.
Thank you, Sheila, I’m glad you like the photo. The meadow was indescribably beautiful that day. And you are so right, we can be “on top of the world from within.” Love that!
Lesley, I love this post. Your contemplation makes me wonder what my life and my days would look like if I would actually “realize” these truths. If the attention were to be always on the Beloved, what in my life would stay and what would go? So much of my time I spend focused on earning a living and saving for retirement and making the house just so. In my heart I know that true bliss will never be mine as long as those things claim my sacred attention. Thank you for this beautiful reminder of the Truth.
Thank you, Marian. Please know that I too am learning to live the truth that the Beloved streamed in for this post. I have to say, though, that the more I do as you say, keep my attention always on the Beloved, the more simple my outer becomes so that I have more time and energy to focus on the inner. And even when the outer amps up, which it tends to do at times, I can stay in the calm flow and negotiate things with ease. Constant loving refinement of the inner and thus the outer.
Thank you Lesley, this is so inspiring. Marion, I really resonate with what you say, too often other things claim my attention. Lately I’ve been contemplating ‘playing to win’. I am so aware that when i keep my attention on love and seek guidance from my Beloved, in the moment, I, or rather the shabda love power, wins the moment. Recently I felt entrapped in some karma and, using the analogy of a game of cards, I lost the hand to my lower chakras. The beauty of it is that I am now able to see where and why I lost that hand, and imagine how that scenario would have unfolded if I had managed to keep my attention centred on love. I may have lost the hand, but the game is still going, and I’ve got an ace up my sleeve. Thank you Lesley and all who share here for being beautiful channels.
Chloe, I love your analogy. And thank you for the reminder that I can lose the hand, which I so often do, but that doesn’t mean I’m out of the game. My mind so often tries to convince me otherwise. I need to remember that ace up my sleeve!
Thank you, Chloe, for that great analogy of the ace. We really do have that. In fact, we have the whole deck up our sleeve! It’s great that you did a revision of that situation. When we do that, we are rewriting all to make the win true in the now.
Oh and that ace, is my Beloved, the Master player is on my side. Much love x
