The games we play define us. Some games are fair. They test our strength and resolve, manifesting the angelic side of our nature, turning even the losers into winners. The opportunity to play supersedes the ultimate victory. From the joy of competition sprouts the spring of glory. The lightness of being shrouds the heaviness of life. We recognize the essence of a thing by its opposite. The games of light are paid tribute to by the games of darkness. Where there exist no rules, or worst when the rules favor the side of the strong. These games manifest our worst nature. The destination pursued with greed devours the joy of the journey. The heaviness of being is the collateral damage. The credit rating games, started with the purest of intentions to level the playing field, have rigged our choices, with the originality of Islamic finance emerging as the ultimate sufferer.
