God Game — play it and you win. To help you succeed, this blog post introduces you to a simple way to search for God. And find God, too: “The Pocket.”
Today’s post flows from a wonderful Guest Post by SOPHIA, If you dont believe in God, how can Energy Spirituality help you? Part 1,
In response, we’ve got an equally heartfelt and amazing Guest Post by AMY. Her Part 2 to this conversation was Does your relationship to God depend on social belonging? A Guest Post by Amy.
Many wise, impassioned comments flowed at both of these posts. Today, as promised, I will add my perspective. We could call it “If you dont believe in God… Part 3.”
Except maybe you have already noticed, I choose to call it something different. Because I can. Which is perfect for considering…
The God Game
So much serious, rageful, confusing, unkind conversation has been dedicated to God. One could imagine God twirling in Her grave as a result.
Except, God isn’t dead. Not unless you want Her to be. Or Him to be.
Which brings us to a truly fathomless source of amusement. Since childhood, you have been playing The God Game.
First thing to like about this game: You always win.
A second thing to like: You have zero pressure.
A third reason to play The God Game: You make up the rules.
Incidentally, in case you hadn’t noticed yet. Everybody HAS to play The God Game. In fact, you have been playing it since childhood.
God Game: How to Play
There are just three rules to The God Game:
- You define God for yourself. The who, where, why, when, what.
- Give God whichever qualities you choose.
- Automatically, God will show up that way for you. So will life, people, all your human experience.
God Game: How to Win
You always win the God Game. You always win, no matter what.
Skeptical that everyone can play this game, atheists and agnostics included? Highly recommended reading is America’s Four Gods. Authors Paul Froese and Christopher Bader have written a kind of masterpiece in this nonfiction book.
Here is an official summary from a certain famous bookselling website:
They show that regardless of our religious tradition (or lack thereof), Americans worship four distinct types of God: The Authoritative God–who is both engaged in the world and judgmental; The Benevolent God–who loves and helps us in spite of our failings; The Critical God–who catalogs our sins but does not punish them (at least not in this life); and The Distant God–who stands apart from the world He created.
Really, the book discusses five — not four — ways to play The God Game. Because a final option discussed is “Atheism: The Un-God.”
God Game Choices
Authors of the most comprehensive survey of Americans’ religious beliefs ever conducted, Bader and Froese discuss the implications of beliefs about God and other aspects of life:
- Personal morals
- View of science
- Relationship to money
- Child rearing
You name it.
That, of course, is the point to what I call “The God Game.” You decide. Then your life shows up accordingly.
Play that God Game as vigorously as you like. Change your definitions. Then watch the kaleidoscope of life rearrange itself for you, here at Earth School.
Incidentally, if you like, you may take “The God Test.”
God Game: The Pocket:
Adding a gift to you from Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES). Here’s something special. An extra version of the God Game
Freely play or reinvent the God Game whenever you like. Beyond that, some delightful options are available.
Sure, you can make up extra God Games, given your ongoing version of the God Game.
For instance, here is a God Game I’ve played for the past five years: The Pocket.
Everything you see, everyone you are with, even blank space, contains pockets. Reach into any one of these infinite pockets whenever you like.
There you will find God.
More God Games
On your path to Enlightenment, extra God Games may help to accelerate your spiritual evolution. One of my books can help you that way: Let Today Be a Holiday: 365 Ways to Co-Create with God is the print edition. A Kindle edition is available, with a different title: 365 Ways to a Stronger You.
With Enlightenment Coaching, part of the fun is that I can help you to design extra God Games.
Also, using techniques of energetic literacy, we can research the consequences of God Games you have already played. Either consequences on you back in the day or consequences for you NOW. (The aura reading techniques employed for this could include Soul Thrill Aura Research and also Consciousness Positioning Consults.)
Most important, with no help from Rose Rosetree at all… In Enlightenment you can constantly discover new God Games.
That is part of the fun. As you heap bliss upon bliss, gratitude upon gratitude, etc.of faith or religion or lack thereof, can be incredibly honest and brave. That Free Will Game is just as fascinating as the God Game, isn’t it?
