dear pleasant ones who captivate me every day and in
every moment, I come today to tell you of an incidence
of frivolity that has taken itself into the avenues of
your experiences. I AM Sananda, and I Am here to play
with you for a time, for I see that the air is laden
with sorrow and that there is a need for lightening.
pause for a moment and consider what this day could be.
Letís look at the list of possibilities. First I see
an event that could go like this: All of you stand on
your tiptoes and circle around a bunch of chairs. Music
is playing, and as it plays you all are moving to the
rhythm. One of the parts of this fun is that you must
remain on your toes as you circle around. Suddenly the
music stops and each of you sits in the chair that is
nearest you. Is there anyone left standing?
Congratulations, you get to choose the next game!
didnít expect that rapid an ending to that familiar
game did you? Okay, on to the next vision I have. You
all are in a row, and you each hold an item in your
hand. You pass that item on to the next person, and on
and on as the music plays. When the music stops then you
look at what you are holding, and as you go down the
row, you each tell a short story about that item. Does
that sound like another familiar game, with a slight
we will form a circle and as the bong sounds we will all
scatter and run and hide. We will have much fun doing
this, and as we do, the one who was chosen to remain
behind will be counting to 25. As he reaches 25 he then
starts to look for each of you. As he finds you, one by
one, the ones who join him look for the others as well.
The one remaining, the last one to be found, gets to be
the captain of the next game.
this game begins, you are all in a wide circle, and one
of you has a ball. This one throws the ball to someone
in the circle and that person in turn throws it randomly
to another. This goes on and doesnít cease until
someone drops the ball. Then that person has to stand
back to everyone in the circle.
goes on until there are two people left looking into the
circle. Those two then throw it back and forth until one
drops the ball. Of course as they are doing that they
are trying to make the other drop the ball. One thing
they cannot do is throw the ball in a direction other
than toward the other person.
this one sound familiar? Do all of these games feel like
you are a child again, just in the reliving of the
memory? Do any of you not remember these, or some other
take a few moments and bring these feelings into the
present moment. You are an adult now, and with these
feelings of being a child once again, how do you view
the issues that are floating around you in the world
today? How would you apply these games and what they
stand for to the world of today? How would you use them
to solve some of the situations of the day?
with this idea and see what you come up with. Write your
ideas down and elaborate on them. See how cleverly you
could solve some of the dilemmas, even the personal ones
that stay within your own family? Are they at all like
what the present judicial system looks like, or the
present societal dictums? Are they cleverly disguised as
a way that problems can be solved? Perhaps the very
atmosphere of playfulness and being carefree, and not
mattering at the outcome are all we need to get the job
you played these games those years ago, did you worry
that you would be found? Did it concern you that your
item would not present a story to you? Were you afraid
that you would not catch the ball and would then not be
included in your friendsí lives anymore?
suggest that you take a lesson from your earlier games
and play. Of course, in some of the situations today,
there is a big difference in that lives are lost in some
cases and fortunes as well. Sometimes families are
ripped apart and soldiers are left broken and bleeding
on the battleground.
is life as has been created by those who played some of
the games that we revisited a few moments ago. Can we
take those moments and bring them into the present one,
and find a way to heal the all too vivid visions of the
present world. I invite you all to do just that.
that this is a game of the heart as well as of the mind.
Pass around the item from friend to friend and when you
have your item in the silence of the stopped music, tell
your story, and make it reflect the moment.
is an exercise you can do often. It can give you a new
perspective on life. Even though it may not at the
moment make the troubles of the world go away, it can
give you a new perspective by which to view not only
that issue, but how you can approach the memory of it,
how you can be at peace with it.
yourself, by worrying and fretting about it, does it
change it? On the other hand, by seeing it with peace in
your heart, and feeling compassion for them does it
change anything for you? I say you will notice a
are all my dear sweet family, and with that truth, I say
this. I have come up to this point in your lives right
along with you. We have danced and we have sung, we have
played our games and we have slept around a campfire
singing and telling ghost stories. We have grown up
together, and we have then grown old and left this life.
we have come back to another life expression and done it
all again together. We have been through it all, and we
remain steadfast and loyal friends. More than that we
are in this for the ultimate prize; we are in this for
the release of all the rules and regulations, except
those that our solid knowing and authority commands.
know each other superbly, and we come to this time with
the unfettered experience of love and comradeship. We
have played our games and we still love and respect each
other. Does that tell you anything about where to go
from here, and how to get there?
this day and as many more as you please to play with
this thought, to bring your childhood games and
philosophies into the present moment. It will bide you
love you and I play with you every moment of the day,
for it is sweet pleasure to bring the gift of innocence
to the moment. So long till next time.
you dear Master Sananda,
