Stories from World Games
One dreams of miracles when one is young, one wants all wickedness to disappear, everything to be always luminous, beautiful, happy, one likes stories which end happily. This is what one should rely on.

The Dragon and the Phoenix by Yam
There is a dragon and a phoenix. The phoenix is more spiritual and rules the kingdom of fire and has a lot of wisdom. The dragon is more powerful, rules the Kingdom of substance and both energies create the universe and each one needs the other because they balance the world.
Penguin Imhoff by Aloe & Alexandra
This little penguin is called Fred Imhoff. He is a very rich penguin and really likes going on holidays. It is his summer vacation and he wants to go to a really posh beach. He packs all his things. He wants to do some snorkeling. By mistake he doesn’t put on his normal glasses, he puts on his goggles. His goggles make him see things differently and because he doesn’t see well, he reads the ticket wrong.
He reads that he is going to some posh beach but in reality, he is going to a sacred Buddha garden in a remote place in Indonesia. He takes his ticket and he flies. He lands and finds himself on what he thinks is a beach, but it isn’t actually a beach, it is a sacred garden. Then he goes and sees a pool and he jumps in. He is happy, he thinks it is a Jacuzzi. It is actually a magical candle whose flame is never visible, but there is always wax, transparent and moving.
He is feeling hungry so he goes and walks in the garden. There he sees a sh, but it is actually a human dressed in blue, digging in something, so he says: “Attack, gluglgugglug” and eats him clean to the bone. He is so happy. He decides to go, but he is a little bloody so he goes and washes himself. But then, after he dries himself, he falls in love with a duck, quack quack quack. They fall in love, kiss, kiss, kiss, and they live and they have a little son.
Then one day while his son and his wife are sleeping under the mushroom house, he finds a glittery thing: it is his glasses and he puts them on and he feels so depressed; he feels miserable, so he chucks his glasses and puts back his goggles and lives happily ever after under the mushroom house next to the watery candle.
The Penguin by Jasmine & Zohar
It is interesting to note that these two children arrived wearing the same colour T-shirt. Sometimes I notice a certain harmony between the children in the way they dress, very often I notice the children have the same colour of dress as I.
“It was very joyful to be with the children, they were in a high mood. Jasmine and Zohar wrote a story called ‘Penguin’ after having played it out in the sand tray. They want me to put the pictures with it, make it into a book. There were clearly many moments of learning and discovery for Zohar: the discovery of how to make a pond by scooping out the sand, how to use a signboard as a shovel.” — Journal
Here is the story:
Long, long ago there was a tiny town where only 2 people lived. They had only one re, one restaurant and a shoe shop. In this town there was a hidden treasure. Nobody knew where it was hidden. The two people caught penguins to make soup but unfortunately there was only one penguin in this village!
Every time they caught the penguin, it escaped. Soon they became tired of trying to kill it, and decided to keep it as a pet. One day their fire blew out and they decided to search for the treasure hidden in the village. They heard that the hidden treasure was actually a key to a place with fire. They told the penguin to go and search for the treasure. He actually found the key in the back of a statue, but he knew that if he gave it to his owners, they would not let him sit next to the fire, because he is only a pet, who eats fish and stinks.
So instead he opened the door to a land with a tree, with a fire beside it. He made his house in that land and stayed warm for the rest of his life. But he felt sad for his owners. He returned to them to light their small re and then returned home to his big fire. The penguin lived happily ever after yet occasionally he went back to visit them. The end.
The two stories above are taken from the book "Glimpses of Wonder".

Philosophy of Life by Yam
The sandbox is the personality and it’s path of life. There are different parts in this World Game:
- Swans are the peaceful side.
- Lizard and scorpion are energetic, they are not bad but a different part of the individuality.
- In the center there is death, it is not bad here, it is like everything leads there.
- Castle: sometime one is closed to the world ( fortress around the heart), because most of our feelings we keep inside. Also one feels big in the world, and sometimes one sees how huge the world is, the small farm house symbolizes being small and seeing the world big.
- The guardian is leading the heart and keeps bad things from our heart, it is also intuition and courage.
- The food represents that you can enjoy life.
