If it is Easy, it is Not Valued; If it is Easy, There is No Challenge

It seems that this would be the key to the creation of this entire universe to me. If we want to play games then it makes total sense that we would make them as complicated as possible just for the fun of it. What fun is a game without a challenge? We want the challenge of trying to figure out the strategy for ourselves. We want to be the winners because we figured it out so we create the most complicated game strategies and rules that are ‘mentally’ possible for us just for the thrill! Even if it frightens us we will still watch the scary movie to see how and why Norman Bates kills the girl in the shower. ‘Secretly’ we want to feel the fear! We want to see if we can figure out the most complicated cases.
We cannot be bored or we will not play.

Excerpt from Elias’ session 228:
Question: I believe it is possible to go from nearsightedness to perfect eyesight, but I don’t know the methodology or practical procedures of doing so, and I have never met anyone who has done that.
ELIAS: And it is not necessary to objectively know the methodology. What is important to know is precisely what we have been discussing: the importance of your not wanting the sight that you have created. When that becomes less important, you will generate much more success in altering your sight. As it continues to be very important, you continue to create it.
Question: So I have to keep looking for the motive, the reason why I supposedly don’t want good eyesight?
ELIAS: Or you can simplify and merely begin to lessen the importance of what you do not like.
Question: How do you do that? It’s not easy.
ELIAS: It is not easy, for you create it to be complicated. (Laughter) But in actuality, it is quite simple and it is quite easy. But you incorporate fascinations with complicating and generating much more energy than is necessary.
If it is easy, it is not valued; if it is easy, there is no challenge. But if it is complicated, you can unravel it, and that is an action that you are all quite fascinated with.
It may be likened to a present: if an individual hands you a gift and it is unwrapped, you may accept it and you may thank them; if an individual hands you a gift and it is wrapped in paper and in strings and you must unwrap it, you will generate more excitement, for you have presented yourself a surprise. You may receive the same gift, but the one that is wrapped will be more exciting, for it is more complicated. (Chuckles)    ©2015 Mary Ennis. All Rights Reserved.

Wow, what I have learned about myself today. I understand why I do not like games. I have made the decision to back away from challenges and confrontations as much as possible as this is my final focus and I am searching for a better way, an easier way…
I am searching for TRUTH! And everything else bores me. How’s that for the ultimate oxymoron of humanity! YES!
Thank You Father… and Elias…and Yeshua, My Brother… (It feels so good to know that asking for help is a good thing. I don’t have to have all the answers myself… even though I really do I just don’t remember. That’s why I need help. Ha! Ha!)
I guess it’s somewhat funny to me to remember that I went to bed asking for help and waking up this morning with the knowing that even as Our Father loves creation and creating and we have taken on those ‘experiences’ He never meant for me to ‘forget’ who I AM in the process! That was my decision… Thus ‘the tiny mad idea’.

Experiencing the Game

I actually wanted to experience how it would feel to be a ‘human/physical being’ that was having pain and how a human would re-act to the fear of death. I wanted to experience the trauma of sickness and loss and depression. I wanted to know how it would be to be upset and uneasy and insecure.

I wanted to experience all of the things that I am not… but why?

Am I just THAT curious? Is it because I knew that it wasn’t real and that I could stop the charade at any moment?

Yeshua, can we talk? And what type of experience are you having? Even though you no longer have the desire to experience ‘human/physical reality’ as you have been there, done that, you are ‘experiencing’ some other type of interest, correct?

Would I be correct in saying that this is who we are as creators, moving ‘mentally’ from one experience to the next just to see what it would be like if we were in those situations? Is that what it means to create?

Yes, I feel you smiling.

So that is why you can say that everything is neutral, that we give everything its meaning. And within a world based on belief systems, you pick a belief and put a situation in the category that you decide is right or wrong, from a human perspective that is.

You know I’m not a game player but I can see how this would appeal to those that are, just going from one game to another, conquering all the levels of one game then on to the next game that is much more challenging. Even my statement that I am not a game player sounds funny to me as I say it, as I am realizing that my not liking games is no more than my choice for the situation that I have chosen for this ‘experience’.

The ‘Real Me’ is quite obviously a big game player, I just wanted to experience how it would feel not to want to play the game while living within the game. (Matrix) So it’s not that I’m out to prove that this is not real. I am out to prove that anything CAN be real for me if that is my choice? Yikes.

Is it possible that I could actually be bored with the knowing that I have full control of who I am so I have chosen to forget who I really am in order to experience a challenge? This would make the crazy mad idea (A Course in Miracles) not so crazy and mad; it would make the idea an intentional choice. Am I correct? I knew that already didn’t I? Yes, but now it is alive.

Always before I could not get past the whys of it all.

WOW.

I know I always say this but… this is the most important information that I have ever received. Ha! Ha! I will say this though, I think this is the most important revelation that I have received to date and I think that you would agree with that. (Smiley Face)

Thanks! For you kindness and your patience. I long to ‘experience’ the real you outside the game.

Heck, I long to experience the REAL ME outside of the game! Now that will be an experience!

LOL!
