Players like Russell Wilson use meditation, prayer and visualization to prepare for success, along with hard work and study. In fact, Wilson visualized the victorious play of this game before it happened.
Football is a two-edged sword, like everything else that is profound. The game of human life is not for angels. It is testing in the fire, a trial of spirit in the body.
Pete Carroll is not just a football coach, he is a life coach. His Seahawks are mostly a team of rejects and misfits who were overlooked by other teams, undrafted or let go. They use the game of football as a means of transcending the ego, cultivating collective consciousness and initiating into shamanic powers.
I feel sorry for people who are too politically or spiritually elite to participate in the passion of a great sports team. Congratulations to the Seahawks, and joy to all the Twelve.
