This holiday season my family got a chance to enjoy this game and play instead of doing nothing. My dad, my mom, my younger brother and I competes with each other and it is usually my mom who wins the game.
While we were playing we had some reflections about life that I would like to share...
At times when I had the most property, I didn't care about how many steps would I get from the dice anymore. I didn't have to worry because I owned everything. I can land anywhere and not care because everything's mine. At the beginning it was really exciting because other players pay me and I just kept on collecting money but after a while the game became boring.
There was also a time when I had the most money but unfortunately I couldn't land on properties. It is either I land on chances or end up on a property that I already owned. Even if I had the most money it seemed like it was useless because I couldn't use it.
Isn't it that life is also like that? You would end up not caring about your life when you have no problem. If God will make it perfect, with no flaws, it would become boring. If you can have everything, then living your life will become nonsense, absurd, foolish and crazy. It would become a life living with no life.
What about having all the wealth? Money can't buy everything. It can't buy happiness, love and peace. We can't even use it once we die. I am not a hypocrite. I am not saying I don't need it but I believe being the wealthiest person on earth can't make me problem free, secured, happy 24/7 nor I can buy peace and salvation for everybody.
And wait...there's one more thing..we also tried playing the game with equal share of properties..no biddings and no negotiation. It means that we had tried to maintain that every player would be equal. And we thought..well it is nonsense! It felt like we were not playing. So we conclude that if God had made everybody the same and equal, life would not be exciting to live. We couldn't see improvements and, still, it would be living a life with no life.
