Italian Proverb

I love this one which I just happened upon today.

“At the end of the game the King and the pawn go back in the same box.”

As do, I add redundantly, the cops and robbers and the cowboys and Indians and the saints and sinners. Why is it that we all know this stuff but seldom act like we know it? Well of course it’s fear but for God’s sake! Let’s snap out of it.

  1. How do you know that there is a god? I can understand the fear of uncertainty, yet I can’t seem to believe that there really is a god.
    It seems too much like every other religion and in the long run it is a false hope

  2. Well, I thought if I put your question on the back burner for awhile I might come up with the right words for you but I suppose that isn’t working — so I will just say, when you have the answer to your question let me know how you know. I’d be interested to know :). The only direction I could give would be to replace the word god with “consciousness” or “source” or “all that is”. I have used all of these and more, depending on my focus at the time, but have finally settled on god and just let people grapple with the word in their own way. Words often have connotations that get in the way of innate knowing. Anyway, yes, it is a good proverb as it does not depend on any particular belief to be true.
