The Zero Sum Game


Life is a Zero Sum Game. We think we have won, when in reality we have lost. The choice of our visit to Planet Earth is to experience Life in the Human form. The first loss is when we forget this is to experience and we spend a lifetime collecting, collections which we never truly own.
  

In the above graph: the x axis expresses lifespan, while the y axis expresses earnings.

Genesis 3:19  By the sweat of your brow you will eat. (Thou shall earn by the sweat of thy brow).
  1. Here, it is important to understand that one can only eat by the sweat of one's own brow. Earnings through any other means will not last.
  2. Earnings are predetermined. Rate of earning is a choice we make.
  3. Lifespan is the number of heartbeats allotted to oneself. Time as we calculate, is of no consequence. We can stretch the time between two heart beats from 1 second to 10 seconds and have increased our lifespan 10 fold or vice-versa.
The ideal earning situation would be where earning is incremental with life time, and is generated until the end of one's life.(the Green line in the graph)

Those who have wealth thrust on them at an early stage in life, reach their predetermined earning early in life. Earnings if not used well, the descent can be steep, and the remaining part of his/her life can be in penury.(the red line in the graph)

Some will struggle or laze throughout their lifetime, and not achieve the predetermined earnings. They are then thrust in situations to ensure they achieve the target even if at the end of their life. To fulfill this, their earning can be received either as a Donation, a Gift or Lottery.(the blue line in the graph)

The slopes can vary, but these are the three basic lines.

Check which line you are following in this graph.

The Seed within..............

Hearken: Behold there went out a sower to sow: And it came to pass as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the birds of the air came and devoured it up. And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth: But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away. And some fell among thorns, the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit. And other fell on good ground, did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty some a hundred. He said unto them,
" He that has ears to hear, let him hear"                                                          
   ---Mark 4:3-9  



In this parable of the Lord, the situations referred to are of the mind.The seed is sown as soon as we are born, implanted within us and have the ability to manifest with time. If we are tied down by our earthly desires, it is as if the seed has fallen on rocky terrain only to take off on the wings of desire. At times we are shallow in faith, the plant of faith sown and nurtured by our parents gets uprooted with the little knowledge we have gathered, only to be burnt by the scorching heat of the world we live in. The thorns are the evil forces we encourage in our space and not let the seed grow. It is for us to discover the purpose of our being and grow. The choice lies within. Meditation helps. We need to focus within ourselves and discover a whole new world and the true meaning of our being. This results in untold happiness, as we realize our earthly achievements and  possessions have lost its meaning in our lives.
