If we just sat around in bliss, seeing ourselves as just a small part of the divine one, evolution would never occur. We did not manifest to do that. That is our underlying truth, but we have set that aside for now. Just as the underlying truth of every soccer player is that they have the ability to pick up the ball and run with it. But they have freely chosen to play the game, with the constraints of the game. In working with those constraints, which some could call illusion, these soccer players have evolved to perform miracles with their feet and heads on the ball. Those miracles would never have occurred without the conscious decision to accept those constraints and live within them on the soccer field.
And so have we all, on this field of the physical world – evolution through constraints and the challenges of meeting and playing with those constraints. Too often we see life as a battle – we must reframe our life as a game.
