Competition – the addiction to the energetic reaction to the idea that you are beating or could beat another person within a specific activity or sport. This is the basic principle behind why people compete – to experience what you believe is your victory over another. Also in competition one creates energetic reactions (good feelings), in response to how you perceive others view you while you are beating or about to beat another in a competition.
Observe for yourself, when you are competing, it exists only within yourself and within the other person, the experience of competition. There is no universal recognition or some cosmic force that is looking down at either one, bestowing you with greatness, blessing your genes and ego with gratification. It is within you, in your mind, your ego that fuels, generates and responds to your competition to another. The other person does exactly the same thing and yet in our world, our society of ‘competing’ we have come to believe that competition actually means something. What could it possibly mean – better intelligence, more physical strength? What does that actually mean? The only function of any such idea that competition allows us to see who is genetically superior – is sex. People want to marry someone who they believe will give them better offspring. The better off spring, is yet again to ensure the survival of the mind as the ability to think yourself better, faster and cleverer than everyone else. This in the end makes us think that we are great human beings and that other humans also believe this about us. Everybody is busy judging others according to how they think they are being judged. In response to this game that is played between people as the battle of the ego’s the believers energetically react through his/her egos to this grand scheme of things as an idea only existent in the mind. So yet again we have shown that competition breeds competition as a human energy addiction.
So what happens if we don’t have to compete anymore? Well we will still do exactly what we have been doing, only by removing the energetic reactions and addictions to competing, you are now participating in activities because you enjoy yourself, you enjoy moving in your body and you enjoy the other people you participate with. Removing competition means that we will no longer limit ourselves to the activities that gave us sufficient ground for competing. We will no longer follow sports and activities which fuel the ego, instead we will all try things we have never done before, simply because we can and because it is enjoyable. Now we will really have fun, because we will no longer be directed by the mind, telling us which sports and activities to follow. What people will find most surprising is that once they break through the initial ‘desire’ to only do and participate in certain activities, which we could call breaking through the pre-programming – we will all find new activities fun and enjoyable, without judging them and without judging ourselves within how we participate. There will be no more judgment of self because there is no right or wrong. You participate, and you decide how you push yourself to learn and develop your abilities. All done from the starting point of self-enjoyment and self-movement. No longer with competition be the deciding factor and driving force behind what we do. Why do that to yourself? Why trap yourself in your mind in cycles in which you are actually competing with you, judging you and abusing you through thoughts? Why not fully express ourselves here in the physical reality, unconditionally and within this allow and support each other to do the same, so that there is no harm done in thought or deed towards ourselves and others.
