You cannot lose at a game you refuse to play. Only by playing does a game seem real.
To believe in competition is to believe that receiving comes through taking, that you are separate and on your own. To believe this is to limit your vision.
Competition is a fool’s game designed for the ego. By escaping the ego and identifying with spirit, you simply forget that competition is a thing. From the enlightened perspective, there is no better than or lesser than. Comparison between people is meaningless when we are already perfect and complete.
What matters is what you are here to do. Do that well. Serve others, don’t try to defeat them. Give to others and receive gratefully in return. Do what you do best and do it to the best of your abilities. Teach others to do the same.
Giving and receiving is the same act. Create value in this eternal present moment and receive it here in return. Have faith, have patience. Time is irrelevant here. This is the path toward abundance in both the material world and on the level of the soul. Everything you truly value is found in joining with another, while competition brings poverty by pulling us apart.
Because he is no competitor, no one in the world can compete with him. (Tao Te Ching)
Become like a fool who is blind to the idea of competition—as though competition never existed. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
