So I've made it one of my goals in life to clear up misconceptions of the Game. In order to help facilitate this you need to understand what a Player is.
Before we take this journey let me just mention that I will be hitting a lot of points pretty quickly, unfortunately we don’t have room to get too deep. But if anything sparks your interest or seems confusing, I’m always here to answer any questions. Back to the point…
OK then, so what is a Player?
A Player is one who Plays the Game. He or she understands it and uses it to their advantage instead of being taken advantage of.
The Game is most commonly used to reverse the power dynamic – using the same methods that those in power use to place themselves in a position of power. A Player isn't trying to rule the World; they’re just trying to rule their life and maintain everything in it. When you create something in your life, it must be “built” properly or you risk it falling to pieces. That’s a major rule we live by.
The Game, unfortunately, has become synonymous with illegal activity. Again, it’s the reversal of the power dynamic. Those Players involved in illegal activity would rather take the risks and have their “freedom” than live a life of conformity. Sounds contradictory, doesn't it? To the average person it will.
Is that the best choice? Not necessarily. But the motivation behind it has merit.
Let me make this clear now. To be a Player you DO NOT have to be involved in illegal activity – most Players aren't. I don’t advocate illegal activity, but if you want to know what this Game is about, you need to understand the mentality of those that use it this way. But of course, that’s not the only way to use it.
The Game goes beyond Hustling, Pimping and Macking. In fact, anything that requires a power structure to “hold itself together”, requires the Game. You can only “hold together” a structure of power if other people willingly allow you to.
This includes countries, corporations, educational systems, the “street” games I mentioned above, and even most personal relationships.
So how do you get people to contribute to a structure of power? Through the understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of human nature.
When I teach about what a Player is, I use the symbol of the circle. Why? Because this is how a Player moves. He revolves smoothly and non-stop.
A Player is the ultimate manifestation of mystery. He or she thinks differently and reacts differently than the average person. The reason for this is because they have an entirely different perspective on life events and problems. And despite what people try to have you believe, life IS a series of problems. Some problems are small, some problems are huge, but they ALL need to be solved.
A Player doesn't run from problems, they attack them head-on and solve them. If they can’t take them head-on they find a way AROUND them. Not avoiding them! But finding a unique way to solve something that would make a weaker person fold from the pressure.
The Game itself is knowledge, a certain kind of knowledge, and a real Player is a manifestation of that knowledge. A real Player must live the life they advocate – no matter what lifestyle they choose.
Players operate at a peak (highly effective) state. I didn't say a perfect state (no one is perfect) but a state that is above the average person’s. And how is this accomplished? By keeping themselves in a constant state of reality – accepting what is and changing what can be changed.
What does this allow the Player to do? Play, of course! It allows them to move and shake through life without being moved and shook by outside influences, social conditioning and other people. Think of it like this: If you were trapped in the middle of a war zone and had bullets flying everywhere and explosions going off, what would you do?
You would run to safety and find cover, am I right?
And this is what a Player does. He or she finds “cover” from the chaos and confusion going on around them. This “cover” is remaining “inside” their own structure of personal power; like a king or queen sitting in their castle.
This is both good and bad because it has its limitations, but the limitations are accepted because you can’t gain something without losing something else.
Nothing in the outside world comes freely. Even the things you come into this world blessed with – your life, your family and your mind still take work to maintain. This is key – to maintain something, you have to pay a price; you must give up something to gain something else. Nature maintains balance in this way.
A true Player earns EVERYTHING so they have the natural right to it. Peep Game.
Until next time.
