Even football players go through routines similar to what we experience. Go to work, suit up (don’t forget your protection), huddle, break, look over the opposition, call for the play to start, fight for progress, get stopped in our tracks, huddle again, and start the next attack. The most successful quarterbacks have honed their skills but also have learned to trust their instincts. They’ve learned how to read the opponent and adjust accordingly.
I wonder what happens to quarterbacks after their final season. Do they dream about the game? If so, do their dreams consist of glory plays or times when the opposition broke through and put them on their butts? The only thing they were responsible for accomplishing was moving the ball into the end zone. Seems simple enough, but in reality, it is not.
Our goal in life is to move from this realm of existence into the next one. If there is no other realm of existence, then the game of life has no meaning. Some think it takes a lot of work and persistence before we are worthy to move into our next life. Some think it is a matter of following a formula, and, once that commitment is made we are “in” no matter what we do.
I’m not promoting one view over the other. I would, however, like to remind us all that, much like football, it is a game, and we are here to enjoy it no matter how many times we get knocked on our butts and pushed around.
