“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players; they have their exits and their entrances, and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.”
~ William Shakespeare (from As You Like It)
Shakespeare was right! Well…almost. All the world is a stage; however, all the men and women are more than merely players. As you will discover in this website, all the men and women, and the children too, are the writers, directors and producers, as well as the actors in the most dramatic blockbuster movie ever created. The movie is called “Life.”
It’s true! This never-ending story of life is playing out right now on planet Earth and yet most of the actors don’t know they are a character and that there is an amazing script written specifically for their role. A script that describes the highs and lows of their life, the talents and gifts that come to them naturally, what their desires and goals are, what kind of job they will have, when they will be in love and with whom. This script also includes their supporting cast of family, friends and associates.
“What script? What character am I supposed to be playing?”
We have all been living in the land of Oz and now the curtain is finally being pulled back for all to see. Humanity, much like the people of Oz, has been so mesmerized with their experiences and the fantasy and the fears of what lies ahead that we have not been able to see beyond the illusion of the show. We have been enamored with the smoke and mirrors and special effects—from floods and famines to wars and oil well explosions from planes flying into buildings to school shootings—that we haven’t really seen the world for what it is!
The reality is that the day we were born is the day we stepped onto the world’s stage and the day our drama began. Our souls have signed up to play certain characters or roles to experience necessary lessons to fulfill our personal journey or spiritual path to enlightenment. Believe it or not, our body is the costume we chose for this grand performance. And it supports our roles completely—one hundred percent of the time.
In a perfect world, we would have received a birthday card on the day of our birth. A card that describes the character we are going to play and its accompanying script. Unfortunately, like most of the six and a half billion other actors in this global film production, we never received our birthday card or even knew that we are playing a very important part in the greatest story ever told!
“If my life is already written, then where is free will?”
Even though the script is already written, we do have the free will to choose at every moment how we will play out each scene. Because this movie comes from the greatest screenwriter that ever was, every opportunity has been thought out much like an interactive video game. In this epic movie, the actors have a multiple choice script, where if they make a different decision, then a different scenario will play itself out. This feature gives us the illusion of chance, chaos, and even fear—components of any good movie.
At every moment, we are writing, directing and producing the scenes of this movie. While we collectively are creating the bigger story, each one of us has our own story playing out on our own part of the stage. It is up to us to determine if it is going to be a tragedy or a comedy. Remember, the script doesn’t make the actor, the actor makes the script. Their attitude toward the role they are playing is everything. And keep in mind, the best actors in Hollywood want the more difficult roles. Anyone can play the easy ones!
“My whole life has already been scripted–my past, my present and even my future?”
Yes, it is true! This movie called “Life” follows a pre-programmed script that was made in a holographic way but appears to play out in a linear manner, like a movie that has already been filmed. This is where the Cards of Life Reports can show you specific events in your past and when they happened. These reports can further show you what will happen in the future because it is already written.
Screenwriters use scene cards, which are small cards that briefly describe what is going to happen in a particular scene of the movie, to plot out the sequence of events for the characters and the entire screenplay. The Cards of Life can accomplish the exact same thing. They explain what may seem like random, chaotic, unrelated events in your life, subject to the capricious winds of chance. Everything in your life has order and a divine purpose: your past, present and, yes, even your future.
Speaking of the future, as you experience your own movie, it doesn’t matter whether or not you like the ending because there really is no ending. The concept of death is an absolute lie. We are immortal beings who live for all eternity. We do, however, like Shakespeare said have our exits and our entrances. When someone in our life dies, they have, in essence, moved off our stage. Too many people on the set can make a terrible movie. They will return to the movie of “Life” one day, wearing a different costume, with a different name and have a different role because this movie never ever ends.
“Am I going to win some type cosmic academy award for the role I’m playing now?”
Yes, and that is part of your script, too. However, we all must play our role really well to win. We have had many lifetimes that were quite successful and rewarding, and some that just bombed at the box office. That’s true for everyone here. But now, knowing what we know through the Cards of Life, it is now up to each one of us to make this lifetime the most spectacular one yet. Offer a stellar performance that will never be forgotten and receive a standing ovation for all eternity!
