“I am. I like. I believe.”
Everything is constructed of elements. Even the things that aren’t objects. Like who we are, what we do, and what we believe in. Now, the elements that make up these things aren’t hydrogen, oxygen, and einsteinium…rather wisdom, compassion, detachment, and vitality. But there are way more traits that make us who we are as people and give us our place in the world. Without our artha, kama, dharma, and moksha we would just be humans because of our physical composition. We may not recognize the importance of our deeper emotions but we are really nothing without them. The game “Battle of the Purusharthas” works on the principle that our values are responsible for the things that make our everyday life unique to us.
The past few days that I’ve been working on this game made me really think about my artha, kama, and dharma. Who am I? Well, I am a student right now, but I aspire to be successful one day doing something that I love and something that will provide for me. What do I like? I like theatre and science. But what do I believe? I believe that whatever you do with your life you should love it. I believe that happiness is absolutely the most important thing for your life and it is the best gift you can share with others. Who are you?
