Written by Quinten van Ommen
To let you look at life from a different perspective. Hopefully it will bring some peace and positivity into your life.
A couple of sentences from the article of yesterday
You know, Chill One Love is about bringing the world together with music, photography, videography, and art.
But right now we are all experiencing the pandemic called Corona | COVID-19. And because of that I (Quinten van Ommen) will start to write articles on the Chill One Love website which will spread peace and positivity. I was thinking about not doing it because it has nothing to do with music, photography, videography, and art. But it has to do with bringing the world together.
With The human game I do NOT mean a video or computer game !
My whole life I was interested in why people live like they live. I experienced that most people are just playing a game, and that some of these people aren't even aware of it. To help people waking up from the human game I started to share some things. After a post on Reddit about the Human Game, and the outbreak of the pandemic COVID-19 (Corona virus) I decided to write this article. I wrote this article in a style that you will question things about your life. So in this article I am not trying to say that you should or should not do certain things. Hopefully you will learn a lot from this article. And hopefully you will like it.

What is the human game?
The human game is the game most human beings are playing. Some are playing it without knowing that they are playing it, and some do know that they are playing it. Most people play the human game from birth to death. I call it the human game because when you experience reality in its purest form you will experience that there are no rules.
What are the rules of the human game?
If I would write down all the rules of the human game I would probably write for a long long time. So to let you experience, and therefore know what the rules of the human game are. I would recommend you to do this. First you need to still your mind, you can do this by meditating. Now you are experiencing reality in its purest form. Now you experience that there are no written rules in this reality.
If you in life let go of the written rules and all the things people teached you. You will still experience that there are feelings / emotions. You know what feels good and what doesn't feel good. You can also see these feelings / emotions as rules. But these feelings are not human made. They just exist. ( If you can not let go of everything, then your feelings are not pure, then they are influenced by something.)
(I am not saying that I think that all human created rules are bad. I am also not saying that I think that all the human created rules are good.)
Good teachers of life beyond the human game are animals who are not living together with human beings.
How you learned the human game
Since the day you came out of this earth (birth) people were telling you what to do and what not to do. Probably almost all the rules that people teached you are rules of the human game. The most people that teached you these rules probably didn't even know that they were explaining the rules of the human game to you. That's because they were just repeating to you what they heard from other people that repeated to them what they heard from other people who teached them the rules of the human game.
If you take a look at the human game you will also see that children are getting prepared to play a more ¨important¨ role in the human game. And that children are not allowed to make any changes to the human game until their age is around 18 years old.
Why are people playing the human game?
Babies are completely dependent on others to survive. Therefore they also start listening to the ones who take care of them. And because of that they will live according to the rules of the human game.
But if you are reading this you are probably not dependent anymore. So you can do whatever you want to do. So why would you stick to the rules of the human game?
In the process of learning the rules of the human game, you are also repeating thoughts from others to yourself. Because of the rules and thoughts fear is planted inside you. Because of this people have fear to do things that they never did before. Also most people did never let go of the dependent state of mind they had when they were a child. Therefore they are afraid to let go of things that they have learned. For some people the thoughts they repeated to themselves have become like a sort of replacement for their old teddy bear they used to have. Because with the Teddy bear they never felt alone, and because of that it gave them a secure feeling.
One of the common rules of the human game is that you will be afraid of people who are not following the crowd. Along with being afraid it is teached to look at them like they are crazy, and to call them crazy. And most people don't want to let go of their mental teddy bear and they also do not want to be treated like they are crazy. But why would people who are not following the crowd be crazy?
Most people their lives are controlled by human made fear. Fear that isn't even their own fear. It is just fear that they learned from others.
Ways to exit the human game.
First you need to know that you are playing the human game. If you now know that you are playing the human game. Congratulations !!!
Now you need to still the mind to experience reality. Like I said before you can do this by for example meditating. Now you let go of everything you are beginning to experience life. And now you can decide how you want to live your life. Now you are also aware of the fact that most human beings are just playing a game. The human game. Now you know this. You will probably take the game less seriously. Enjoy your freedom.
