The Whole Game of Life Revealed

The Whole Game of Life Revealed

There is a game of life being played and it is about being God and not being God. Being God is being the Player. Not being God is being a pawn used by a Player to play the game. There is a game being played between God and the Devil, and Man is a pawn in the game. Right from the very beginning, the Devil played the game with Man by telling Man that they can become the Player instead of the Pawn by eating from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. The Devil said God does not want Man to eat from that tree because God knows Man will become like God and become the Player and take away God’s ability to make use of Man as a Pawn.

To become God is the one thing that the Devil has used to tempt Man with all along in the game of life. It is the very same temptation the Devil used to tempt one third of the Angels to fall. The Devil tempted the Angels in Heaven with the temptation that they can become God. The Devil tempted himself with that very temptation in the beginning of beginnings when he wanted to exalt himself above the stars of heaven and be like the Most High. The Devil knew God was the Player and he wanted to become the Player himself, he wanted to be God. There are teachings and philosophies in life that tempt Man to be God such as occult knowledge, esoteric teachings, New Age knowledge, etc. This gives Man some degree of Metaphysical power which makes Man think he can become God. But as Man go through life ups and downs, during the ups, Man thinks he is God, Man thinks he is in control of his own destiny, Man thinks he is master of the universe, etc. And during the downs, Man realizes he is not God, he is not in control of anything, etc. The ups and downs in life is the game being played with Man in being God and not being God.

The Truth is that Man is not God, although the game of life presents the illusion of Man being God during the good times, and shatters it during the bad times. The whole game of ups and downs, good fortune and bad fortune started when Man ate from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Man doesn’t realize he doesn’t have real control over his destiny even if he possesses metaphysical knowledge and has some metaphysical power. Man is still a pawn in the game, and the only real control he has is in choosing his Player, which means choosing whether to serve God or serve the Devil. The control of the game depends on which Player that Man chooses in his game of Life, but Man himself is not really in control of the game.

God and the Devil have provided the solutions to the game of life. God offers the real solution whereas the Devil offers a counterfeit solution.

The solution to the game of life is to realize that we are not God, to give up control, to surrender, to let go.

God offers the true solution by giving His Son Jesus Christ for us to receive as our God and Savior.

The Devil offers the counterfeit solution of cultivating “emptiness”, letting go, in order to achieve “Buddhahood” and free ourselves from all suffering in the world of phenomena.

The counterfeit solution seems like the real thing and that is why many follow it. But it will ultimately end in delusion and real emptiness because it is not choosing the right Player which is God’s way of salvation and redemption.

The devil’s way of enlightenment is cultivating emptiness and attaining the “Tao”. God’s way of enlightenment is the knowledge of Jesus Christ our God and Savior.

It is for the reason that there is One Truth and One Game being played all throughout existence is why you can see the same patterns being played in different ways and in different paths and at different times.

Now that you know what the whole game of life is about, you also know what the solutions are and which to choose.

This is how the Devil plays the game of life with Man:
1. Firstly he offers Man the false solution that he can become God through learning knowledge that can make Man become God (occult, esoteric, metaphysical knowledge, etc).
2. Secondly, when Man becomes disillusion with the lie about being God through the game of life’s ups and downs and circumstances that prove Man has no real control of anything, the Devil offers Man the next level false solution of cultivating emptiness, letting go and attaining the “Tao”.

But the true solution has been found in God’s way all along where if you have Jesus, you have everything.

Jesus has real control over a Man’s destiny although the devil seeks to control Man’s destiny as much as he can. Man’s freewill in controlling his own destiny is actually very, very limited and much of Man’s destiny is actually governed by forces beyond himself. Some possess the real wisdom to understand this whereas many who are “achievers” are living in a deep illusion without noticing the tides and forces of fortune changing over time in a span of years, decades, and even centuries that show nothing is really in the control of Man, and all temporal reign are merely part of the tides.

Man’s freewill has real control in choosing their Player which would then have the real control over their destiny. Apart from that, Man has to let go of all else and let God (or Devil).


Yijing Secrets of Extreme Yin Yang Reversal

Yijing Secrets of Extreme Yin Yang Reversal

One of the things I love about learning from the Yijing Masters is that I am beginning to know how to see the secrets of Yin Yang in all areas of life, subjects, religions, etc. Yin Yang becomes more than just a symbol of the Tai Chi.

Yin Yang when understood can enable one to apply it in all activities correctly.

Feng Shui is yang or external. Meditation is yin or internal. When there are things that you can’t do about your Feng Shui, you can work on your internal energy through meditation. External energy affects internal energy, and internal energy affects external energy.

In meditation, one goes to a place of stillness, void, emptiness, empty of resistance. The more yin one becomes in meditation, the more empty of resistance one becomes. Empty of negative thoughts and feelings, at least temporarily. Bashar calls it the “Zero Balance Rest” state where miracles can happen.

When in a place of extreme yin, the great reversal happens and one has access to the infinite yang. In the emptiness or void, one has access to the infinite field of pure potential where all possibilities exist. Reality is a locking down of possibilities. But when all possibilities are released in a state of emptiness, all possibilities are open temporarily in meditation.

This is how every-thing comes from No-thing, and emptiness is the origin of all things. From Wu Ji (Emptiness) gives birth to Tai Ji (Ultimate Reality), and that is how 0 becomes 1, Yin becomes Yang. From Wu Ji and Tai Ji, Yin Yang exists.

Yin Yang can also enable one to have a little more understanding about events that seem mysterious and perplexing.

In the Bible, Joseph was a young boy when he had a dream where he saw all the people including his brothers bowing down to him. His father also gave him a coat of many colors (probably rainbow colored) and it was long sleeve (a symbol of a ruling class instead of working class). He told his brothers about the dream. When they heard about it and also saw the coat that he was wearing, they got angry and jealous and conspired to kill him. They end up selling him as a slave to Egyptians and lied to their father that he was killed and showed the coat covered in animal blood and said it was Joseph’s blood on it.

So Joseph went from a high point down to a bottom in his life.

As an Egyptian slave, his started rising again from a bottom. His master saw that the Lord was with Joseph and he was a prosperous man. Everything that he touched prospered because the Lord was with him. His master had favor with him and placed him to be in charge of everything in his household. His master was Potiphar, and Potiphar’s wife wanted to seduce Joseph into sleeping with her but he did not do it because it would not be right toward his God and his master. After several times of refusal, the final time was when he had to run away from her when she tried to trap him into doing it. She was upset about it and lied that Joseph tried to rape her. His master not fully believing what she said about Joseph decided to throw Joseph in prison instead of executing him.

Hence, Joseph once again from a high point fell to an even lower bottom than before. From a slave to a prisoner.

From the bottom as a prisoner, he begins to rise once again as he has favor with the Jailor and the Jailor makes him in charge of all the prisoners. He used his gift of divination by interpreting the dreams of two of the prisoners. One of them was a Butler and the other was a Baker. The Baker had a sad fate of being executed while the Butler had a more auspicious outcome of being restored to his former position. Joseph asked the Butler to remember him and to speak to the ruler about him. But the Butler forgot all about Joseph when he was restored back to his former job.

Later on, the ruler of the land Pharaoh himself had a dream that he could not interpret. The butler told Pharaoh about Joseph and Pharaoh summoned Joseph to interpret his dream. Joseph used his God-given gift of divination in interpreting dreams that he had since he was a young boy, and interpreted Pharaoh’s dream about the 7 Years of Prosperity and the 7 Years of Famine, and how to prepare Egypt to make use of the coming times head. Joseph’s divination predicted the auspicious and inauspicious times, and the solution.

Pharaoh made Joseph in charge of the whole nation of Egypt and to implement the solution to the times coming ahead. In this manner, Joseph from a prisoner became a ruler. He rose from the lowest to the highest. And he remained in that position all the way until he died at a ripe old age.

The dream that Joseph had when he was a young boy was a divination and the coat he was given was a sign of his future and his destiny, but yet events turn out very differently at first. A promise or a vision given by God may seem to turn out opposite in the process but eventually it comes to fruition in a person’s destiny.

Sometimes negative events and attacks from other people happen to bring a righteous person down. Bad events happen and there are other people who could be lying, or misunderstanding and accusing this person. It is not necessarily his own Karma that is attracting all these evil, but it could be that in the broader picture, God is going to make use of the situations and lift this person to the greatest heights.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

The Tao Te Ching Secrets of Extreme Yin Yang Reversal:
“If you want something to return to the source,
you must first allow it to spread out.
If you want something to weaken,
you must first allow it to become strong.
If you want something to be removed,
you must first allow it to flourish.
If you want to possess something,
you must first give it away.
This is called the subtle understanding
of how things are meant to be.”

Sometimes you may experience peak points in certain areas of life and start losing those. But there could be greater heights coming up. In this ever expanding universe, we may go lower for awhile in order to go higher. And sometimes we may go lower and lower than before, in order to go much, much higher.


Yijing Secrets of Ups and Downs in Life

Yijing Secrets of Ups and Downs in Life

According to the Yijing, when something rises to the top or reaches an extreme high, it reverses and declines. When something falls to a bottom or extreme low, it reverses and rises.

That’s why when one reaches a peak or high, they seem to come tumbling down. There are times when I had reached a peak or high and then things happen that cause me to tumble down until I feel at the lowest. And then things become better and I rise again until I reach a peak or high, and then things happen that cause me to tumble down again. And when I am climbing up again, I think of how it would be like to be on high again, but I realize it might not be so good idea to reach a high. Either that or I should be careful when on a high.

It is good to remain lowly and let things push you up, than to be on a high and tumble down at any time.

It is no wonder Masters of the Yi Jing:
1. Make themselves Number 2.
2. Make themselves more Yin.
3. Make themselves as continually progressing and not the top.

I have learnt from 3 Yijing Masters and they all apply those characteristics in similar and different ways.

So how then do we deal with the Yijing forces of Ups and Downs? In order to prevent falling from a high, we could:
1. Be number 2.
2. Be number 1 but also be number 0. This creates Yin Yang Balance. Be on top but also remain connected to a lowly state.
3. Be careful when being on high to be aware of danger and become more conservative or retreat if necessary.
4. Put God as number 1.

If you look at the number 1 and number 2 richest people in the world, you will discover a very interesting thing.

Bill Gates is number 1, but actually he started out as number 2. Steve Jobs was number 1 first. Then Bill Gates came to work with Steve Jobs and make himself number 2 while letting Steve Jobs be number 1, but Bill Gates took the ideas from Steve Jobs and went to create Windows which made him overtake Steve Jobs and become number 1 in the world.

There is nothing wrong with learning from someone and overtaking that person, but Steve Jobs was against what Bill Gates did. Later on, Steve Jobs continued to be too yang, and because he stuck to his idea of making Macintosh number 1 instead of considering the ideas of the rest of his company, he got ousted out of Apple by a confederacy among the people. Hence Steve Jobs from Number 1 became Number 2 and then he dropped even lower until he hit bottom before rising again.

Warren Buffet has been number 2 richest man all along and at certain times he overtook Bill Gates as number 1 temporarily. But is Warren Buffet really number 2? He is actually number 1 in a different way. Warren Buffet being number 2 means his wealth always has room to grow since it is not at the top yet. He is a value investor and an accumulator. No matter how rich he becomes, he always live like a number 0. He wants to buy at a bottom and is careful of the market being at the top.

And how does the number 1 and number 2 richest men in the world interact with each other? Do they compete with each other to be number 1? They actually cooperate and are good friends and link together like a combination at the top. Warren Buffet donates a lot of money to the Melinda Gates foundation.

The Bible contains secrets of the Yijing and Yin Yang:
Matthew 19:30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.
Palms 37:11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
Proverbs 16:18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
1 Peter 5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.

The Tao Te Ching also contains secrets of the Yijing and Yin Yang:
“A large country should take the low place like a great watershed, which from its low position assumes the female role.
Large countries should desire to protect and help the people, and small countries should desire to serve others.
Both large and small countries benefit greatly from humility.
The low is the foundation of the high.
Rivers and seas are rulers of the streams of hundreds of valleys because of the power of their low position. If you want to be the ruler of people, you must speak to them like you are their servant.
The people will not feel burdened, if a wise person is in a position of power. The people will not feel like they are being manipulated, if a wise person is in front as their leader. The whole world will ask for her guidance, and will never get tired of her.
Because it does not seek greatness (does not do things purely for the sake of recognition but because of passion); it is able to accomplish truly great things.
When equal forces meet in battle, victory will go to the one that enters with the greatest sorrow.
The great view the small as their source, and the high takes the low as their foundation. Their greatest asset becomes their humility. They speak of themselves as orphans and widows, thus they truly seek humility.”

When a person is going through an up without experiencing much downs before, they may not be believing in all these Chinese Metaphysics stuff.

Many of us who learn Chinese Metaphysics is because we have gone through major up and down cycles in life. Most likely we started learning when we have:
1. Undergone a down and are climbing up again.
2. Going through a down with some ups here and there and are trying to figure out what our state of life is.

I hope what I share here can help shed some insight into life through the principles of the Yijing and simple concept of Yin Yang.

Some further insights…

When on an upward cycle, you can:
1. Make the most out of the opportunity and push as high as you can. You determine where the top is.
2. Do not assume you are at the top yet and believe there is still room for advancement and go for it.
3. If you find that it is difficult to push further and things to start fluctuating or declining, it’s time to quit while you are ahead, or become more conservative, or retreat.

When on downward cycle, you can:
1. Use yang to repel yang by using more energy and effort to push things back up. Choose your battles wisely and fight in ways where you know is positive.
2. If you find difficulty in pushing something up, then retreat and cut loss. You determine where the bottom is. Staying in a losing situation can bring you down further.
3. If you are in a situation where you find it difficult to win and yet you cannot retreat because you are stuck in it and need progress, then surrender. Now is not the time to be yang and appear strong, but to become yin and let go, ask for help, cry to God. This is a signal to the universe that you are at a bottom and things can rise from there.

Example of making the most of out the yang cycle in the Bible:
Joseph helped Pharaoh to store up as much food as possible in the 7 Years of Prosperity to make use of in the 7 Years of Famine and this result in Egypt maximizing in wealth and power in the long term of good and bad times.

Example of being at the bottom of a yin cycle in the Bible:
Israel cried out to God each time they were in a helpless situation and God delivered them from their enemies and the negative situation they were in.

The forces of time and space will always move things up and down and create tops and bottoms, but you can also choose by your own action where the top is for you, and where the bottom is for you. It is like being a surfer riding a wave and deciding where to get on and where to get off in order to move from one wave to another.

It takes wisdom to know which choice to make. Sometimes you can tell when you are in an up or down cycle based on Feng Shui knowledge. Sometimes you have to use Divination. Other times you can simply tell based on observing the signs and feeling the energy of a situation.
