English term or phrase: on a journey into the game of
Hello everyone,

In the new world you will be loved by conscious people; your leaders will love you, they won’t rule you. They will love you and lead you, they will hold and support you, and teach you the truth of who you really are. In the last 2,000 years you all have been on a journey into the game of who you really are. You’re all magical beings in this Universe who have lost your way; you’ve gone far away from the Great Spirit. Now you are coming closer and closer into enlightenment with the Great Spirit.

Does "on a journey into the game of" imply that when people have been trying to find out who they really are it has been like playing a game for them, i.e. the process of "finding out" has been interesting and entertaining like an interesting game?

Thank you.

English translation:discovering and facing the challenges behind making decisions in life
Explanation:
I think this refers to how when you play a game you make decisions to guide yourself through the game, and these have positive or negative outcomes. So your actions in life are like moves in a game, such as chess for example. The next line also talks about 'moving closer to the Great Spirit', which suggests that the challenge or 'game' is to steer yourself in that direction. I think the game metaphor is used not to refer to 'fun' but to the idea of a 'challenge'.
