So how can you break the chains of the addiction to the game?
First of all you have to realise that it is just a game. A very powerful illusion, but that’s all it is. Do not associate yourself so strongly with the possessions. Forgive more freely. Love all other players in the game and do not do them harm. Take more breaks – meditate, spend time in nature, appreciate some simple things and relax more. Be cheerful and happy.
Also, remember that you cannot own other players. They have their own game to play and their own lessons to learn. Remember the saying “if you love somebody, set them free”. Everyone should be free. Free to choose whatever we like as long we do not enroach on other players.
If you follow these tips you’ll be more detached from the worries and stress. You’ll know and understand that everything in this game is impermanent, it’s an illusion. Material posessions, relationships, money, health, body – all will pass. Some sooner, some later. And the game will go on regardless. So many other players keep it going. But it should be enjoyable for everyone. We can make it happen.
