We call it "Lights of the Realm" and it's a non-virtual role playing game, for those who seek to find the truth, the way and the life (true way of life) in the eternal, egoless presence, realm and reality of God's divine nature and characteristics of absolute, undying, true love and majestic virtuousness (Heaven), and be ABLE to live it. It's all about having the virtues of courage, faith, integrity, confidence, honor, boldness, commitment, determination, humility and perseverance, etc., to walk the path of virtuousness (righteousness) and play the game every day and moment of our lives, in our every thought, word and deed, for better or worse, richer or poorer, in sickness or in health. For God IS love and TRUE love is not religious in any way, shape or form, TRUE love is absolutely virtuous by nature. When you get over yourself absolutely and experience the presence of God's divine nature and characteristics, in the absolute, supernatural power and glory of His Holy Ghost, you'll find that love is truly all there is and is the ONLY truth, way and life (true way of life) and ONLY true meaning and purpose for our lives.
What do you win, upon completion of the game? The absolutely rapturous, blissful experience of God's divine nature and characteristics of absolute, undying, true love and majestic virtuousness, in absolute, supernatural power and glory, that absolutely transforms your character into that of a shining, perfect gentleman or gentlewoman of His true love, in your every thought, word and deed, in the twinkle of an eye, a saint by any other name.
It's all about watching your self, in your every thought, word and deed, and choosing to resist the natural instincts and characteristic pride, vanity, envy, selfishness, ambition, lust, greed, desire for creature comfort and fear for survival of the beast of the instinctual, egoistic nature of your flesh, that God named Satan and man calls ego, and choose to do the virtuous (right) thing at all times, no matter the trouble and/or sacrifice it may entail. It's certainly not for the cowardly, faint of heart or the religious tares (egos) and lukewarm fence sitters in the halfway house (church).
For example, to resist the urge to be dishonest and choose to be honest, to swallow your pride and not be stubborn or arrogant, to be generous and not tight-fisted, to cooperate even though the beast is urging you to be selfish, to be polite and gracious, rather than rude and ungracious, to catch people doing the right (virtuous) thing and praising them for it, rather than trying to catch them doing the wrong (unvirtuous) thing and tearing them down a peg or two, to have the courage and faith to step into the unknown with a child-like sense of adventure and resist the beast's survival instinct and desire for creature comfort, etc.
The game of life is naturally very difficult to play and most people don't know how to play it at all. When your pride and vanity, etc., is pricked and wounded (offended), and you instinctively & egoistically react, that's the nature of the beast of your flesh, rising up within you like a serpent, that fills your mind with dark, poisonous, negative thoughts, that then cause you to act according to its character, by bearing false witness of the character of others, hissing and spitting venomous words like a viper, stomping and roaring like a raging bull or running like a chicken, etc. Why don't you resist and overcome it (get over yourself)? Let the vicious cycle end with you, take the higher ground and behave according to the character of true love's divine nature and its characteristic virtues, like a perfect gentleman or gentlewoman, with absolute, majestic holiness, peacefulness, gracefulness and graciousness, with absolute equanimity, humility, cooperativeness and joy, without a care in the world and like a little child-at-heart, though far from childish.
As God is not a respecter of persons (pamperer of egos), we do not pamper to egos either, especially our own. However, we will always encourage and support you through the trials and tribulations that rise up to confront you, and if you find that other character's are trying to direct your character away from the path of virtuousness and becoming/being a light of the realm, out of the unvirtuous (sinful) characteristics of their own instinctual, egoistic nature, then you ought not to pamper to them or give them an inch or second thought and stay true to the path, even if they hate you for it, bear false witness of your character, hiss and spit venomous words like a viper, stomp and roar like a raging bull, etc.
You ought to be a good (virtuous/righteous) judge of the character of others, though more importantly your own. Let the beast of their flesh thump its chest, bear false witness, hiss and spit venomous words like a viper, stomp and roar like a raging bull or run like a chicken, etc., not yours. You be the one to step up and take the higher ground, for they're ignorant savages (sinners) and don't have the courage, faith, integrity, humility, honor or commitment, etc., to forsake all and walk the narrow path, and be cleansed (debrainwashed) of every spot and blemish (mark), and have absolutely no idea of how blinded, deceived, governed and ruled (brainwashed & marked) by their natural instincts and ego (the beast of the flesh), they really are and how far short they truly fall. So very much further than they proudly think they are.
Getting over yourself totally and living in the divine nature of absolute, undying, everlasting, true love and its characteristic, majestic virtues, doesn't happen overnight and contrary to the popular belief of the lukewarm fence sitters in the halfway house, who sit on the fence with one foot in the kingdom and one in the world, serving two masters (natures) and wanting the best of both worlds, it isn't a learning process. It's a debrainwashing (cleansing) process that lasts for as long as you continue to blindly think, talk, act and resist from your natural instincts and ego, and not God's supernatural absolute, true love and virtuousness.
To help you become a better judge of character and sort the wheat from the tares, and recognize those whose character is stained (marked) with the characteristics of the beast of the flesh, you'll find examples of some, along with an example of the character of the perfect gentleman of true love and living role model of it by clicking on the banner below.
You've probably gathered by now, that Lights of the Realm isn't really a game. Truth be told, The League of True Love is just a more accurate title for the kingdom of God and it's a matter of eternal life and death. We're only treating it as a game, because if you don't laugh you'll cry and we who are in league with Him, can't take our instinctual, egoistic selves seriously at all. It's actually the last great move of God, His end time movement, the marching (dancing actually) of the saints and though the beast likes to think it's won the battle, it can and will never win the war, and though everyone likes to believe they have all the time in the world, in case you haven't noticed by now, the world's time is up! As it was in the days of Noah.
But the natural (instinctual and egoistic) man does not receive the (virtuous) things of the Spirit (divine nature) of God (absolute love), for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually (supernaturally) discerned.1 Corinthians 2:14
passive lamb-like virtue (weakness)
Compassion means sharing with passion. It is opening your heart and mind, and sharing passionately and generously with others, even if you don't know them. It is wanting to help, even if all you can do is listen.
The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness.Psalm 103:8
