Infinity and beyond

There are at least two kinds of game. One could be called finite, the other infinite. A finite game is played for the purpose of winning, an infinite game for the purpose of continuing the play.*
(James Carse)

The sense of wonder can also help you to recognise and appreciate the mystery of your own life.**
(John O’Donohue)

We all have a different way into the infinite game.

It is where we notice that we want to include as many people for as long as possible and will change the rules if these things are threatened.

For me, it is about helping people to discover just how amazing they are and to see more of what they can bring into being.

This is only how I enter the game; my appreciation of just how infinite the game is comes through paying attention and valuing how others play.

As yet, I can see no end to it.
