You're Being Played

by John Boodhansingh of Zero Mindfulness

Who are you?
Why are you here?
What is your purpose in life?

Most likely, you can only answer these questions based on what the world has told you.

Because you have spent your life following and knowing only what has been provided to you by authority.

What is this “authority”?

The answer is in the word: author-ity.

In their name, you have abandoned your worth, your individuality, your creativity; you have given them all your power and thus allow them to author your life.

You are like the player in a video game. You appear to yourself as doing everything—all the acting, all the speaking, all the choosing. But, in fact, you’re merely a programmed tool, a two-dimensional character in an illusory world of other-defined parameters, owned and operated by an unseen hand.

May I make a suggestion to you?

If you were truly in a video game, I would tell you to turn around, to look into the screen and see that you’re being played.

But you’re not. Similar, but not.

You must look inward.

Do it.

It’s the only way out.
