Watching the soccer finals my metaphorical mind is running with the ball. Just look at this image that begins the game. You have a circle, the One (non-dual) without a second, then you divide the One into Two (duality), and then you created the center is the Point. You place the ball on that point (the ego) which invests the Cosmic Circle into the now portable Point that represents the undivided One (God), and each have of the One struggles to restore the Whole, or the divided God.
When you divide God or the One, its like dividing a magnet and tremendous energy is created to restore the One, and the longer the struggle goes on, the greater the fury, the greater the energy because the two poles becomes a feed back loop that is like a runaway nuclear reactor.
Each Goal is a release of the tension. For a moment there is the restoration of God (Center), but as there is still time (history) the rapture is temporary and the game continues as if nothing had happened. If the game is tied, the Oval Womb (Goddess) in which the Cosmic game takes places becomes energized by thousands of minds in the oval and across the globe focuses on that one moving Point. The energy being generated is felt in every cell of your body.
The two teams of the divided Whole (One God becomes two gods) also divided into team players, but which even player has the Ball, they are the whole team, the focus of the One mind on that moving point like a cat watching a laser point. The players with the ball for that moment is a god and is invested with the power of the whole as all eyes are on him. He performs with super human skills.
Then by mistake by one and skill by the other, the Still Point is transferred to the other god, and the Point is advanced towards the Goal and restoration of Unity and release of the building tension. When the game time (history) runs out, there will be a final goal and a tremendous release of tension. However, the Original Unity has not been restored because history has not ended and the god that lost yearns for its chance to restore paradise and become the God that has no second.
This is the Cosmic Game of duality and time. We are all born as Original Unity, then enter historical society that is divided, and our Ego is not the soccer ball which we much run with throughout our life achieving goal after goal—a new car, a new marriage, career, fame—that temporarily relieves the tension of the divided One. When time runs out, we look back on all our goals achieved and goals lost, perhaps never realizing it was all just a game.
You can see the Cosmic Soccer right here on Facebook. When our opinions are invested with the power of the center, our Ego we kick it back and forth trying for a goal. Our opinions want to be the Opinion that has no second. Ego can never see that it is playing a game. Ego takes the game seriously because it believes it is the soccer ball and that the game clock is real.
