There is a genre of gaming called MMORPG. It stands for Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games.
Probably the most famous of them all is World of Warcraft. It basically involves a whole host of players, sometimes thousands of them, all joining from various parts of the world and playing together, or against one another in various groups. Counterstrike is another famous such game that has players teaming up to fight off other teams.
In all such games, the goal is to win, and the reward is for the whole community / group / team.
But life is not like this. Our goal is happiness. A few may win, but most will be quite far off. There are a lot of decoys too, along the path.
But unlike in a game, there is no community or social reward for happiness. It is purely a single player experience.
And an astute one, who realizes this is all just a game, wins without any fixation on the material rewards.Leave a Comment
