Sport and game are not synonymous. They mean entirely different things. Sporting is much more deeper process compared to games. Games are activities done for fun purposes.
Sports are a boon. If you are a sportsman, you would know it. It takes a lot of hardwork and passion to learn sports, but sports have a much bigger picture to show you. It does not take anything to love sports, it comes from within. You can learn the skills but cannot buy the love for them. Love comes from your blood and your very basic nature and existence. Love is existence.
To be a perfect sportsmen, it demands a lot of time. Not everybody can do that. Sport transform you to higher levels of mind and soul. You do not belong here while playing. Journey towards the stage of perfection starts from the road of hardwork and passion but requires much more. You have to have that blood and those nerves. Hardwork and passion are blended with your genes and then a meditation stage is reached. You are meditating and all of your energies are concentrated. Just as concentration of sunrays brings fire, concentration of energies brings purification. At this stage, you get purified. This is the purification of the body, mind and the soul. You feel fresh and rejuvenated. After this cleansning process, there comes perfection.
At this time, your body is not controlled by you, neither do you require to concentrate forcibly. It just happens. You happen to play the best of your strokes and it just happens. They are called masterstrokes and masterstrokes create history. They continue to amuse the worlds for infinite durations. It is a divine creation.
It takes a lot to create masterstrokes, it is a long process and most of all, it requires those genes and that blood.
