The Game

You just lost.

No seriously though, What I wanted to talk about was a game of a different kind.

Life's got a delicate balance going on. Actually, life has a delicate balance in nearly every aspect. What most would be aware of, is that if the Earth weren't in some sort of specific orbit like it is, our ocean would evaporate or freeze, depending on whether it were closer or further away respectively and life as we know it would never have come to pass.

And these natural games have and will be played by every human that exists. Because life is about mediums and balances. It's about good and bad, big and small, young and old, old and new and so on. In fact we have gone so far as to say one option is "good" and one is "bad" for so long, we have lost sight of natural order. Good feelings precede bad feelings and vice-versa. There is no such thing as just "bad" or "good" in the grand scheme then, because one is needed to bring the other into recognition. Is it good that a bad deed made us all try a little harder to be good to one-another??

The laws of physics tell us that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. There is life and death, for example. Why is death "bad"? We can say death of a cancer patient is bad because we didn't want them to die. We didn't want them to die. It seems sometimes, it doesn't matter whether the patient was happy with the notion or preferred the release to a life of pain. So we call this a "bad" thing based on our own particular feelings. What's good for one person may not be good for another. And perhaps the event of a "bad" event may spur on the motivations of a "good" thing to make up for the loss arising form that bad thing. People catch killer virus' or disease to pave the way for us to learn about them and try prevent it.  It's bad when someone dies due to illness. It is bad when we want them to live a painful life based on our own needs. It is also good when a disease is cured, but it's bad when we have learned absolutely nothing from it. I could go on.

Then there is the delicate play in relationships. Relationships are always give and take, I'm told, by many. As I see it, relationships are a tug 'o' war. Men lose interest when too much interest is shown in them and girls take too much when interest is shown in them. There is a centre, a balance that has been responsible for so many break-ups that its insane at how simple it is to notice. Both guys and girls are responsible to notice and care for the balance and to hold it as much to centre as possible. In my opinion, no relationship that is one-sided is able to last and anyone who says so, has some serious homework to do on their own relationship. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Life itself is a game and we are all the players. Each side is looking for a member of the other to defect. I am not biased by separating "sides", in fact there is no particular "player" to each different "side" as it were. There are divisions that separate all of us in one way, but unite us on another. We decide what those divisions are and we decide whether they affect our lives or not. Good can very well become bad, but bad always has the option to change to good. Man can very well be angry at women, but then man has some serious issues he needs to look at in himself to understand why they are there. For everything that exists in our lives, we have to look somewhere in ourselves at why it effects us and have a responsibility to fix it.

That is all for today, thanks for reading
