  • I REJECT THE CULTURAL PRACTICE OF WINNING/ACHIEVING AT ANY COST

    Life and my prayers for Fearlessness have presented me with the work book activities and lessons on the
    Concept and Practice of

    WINNING/ACHIEVING AT ALL COSTS
    and all the separate elements involved
    The concept of WINNING
    The concept of at ANY Cost

    and the Price

    I believe that a need to WIN, is one of the fear based needs I have to stalk.
    I myself am not a competitive person,

    but as an extension of the need to Be Right

    I find the Need to Win, or Achieve regardless,

    sometimes pops itself into my life.
    WHY?


    DO I justify my existence by winning?

    making life a competition of human AGAINST human

    instead of competition against Self


    are 'the winners' the 'achievers' more deserving ....

    and does this over ruling fact justify our need to win.


    Is

    ~*~*~ 'THE TRUTH' ~*~*~


    In order to

    GET,
    I NEED to
    BE

    IN

    THE
    Winners Circle


    SOOOOO?????
    do only Winners

    get LOVE
    find SECURITY
    earn PEACE
    achieve PROSPERITY
    attain JUSTICE
    require FAIRNESS
    have KINDNESS
    can access LUXURY
    can claim SANITY


    AND

    HOW MANY WINNERS CAN THERE BE
    before the concept is diluted
    and the need for even more

    'EXCLUSIVE Winners'


    is created

    ....and then comes the whole investigation into

    the Cost of Winning.
    It seems that when the competition for Winning gets so packed,
    there becomes a
    ACHIEVE AT ANY COST
    mentality
    this mentality and the sometimes immoral actions that result

    are accepted

    and sanctioned

    by the Competitors


    ...... and the non winners?
    by default

    whether,

    because they are led to believe that this is a fair competition

    in which all, including themselves, have a chance,
    or

    because their weakened state of non winning has rendered them powerless
    they too accept the status quo of 'Win at any Cost,
    and in physical reality,

    it is them, that bear the brunt of the Cost dynamic here

    But the attitude and practice of WIN AT ANY COST, has cost the winners too.
    The Price is not as visible as the plight of the down trodden, but it is there

    by living as if there no consequences to wrongness,

    basic HUMANE behavior is sacrificed

    and a Poverty of Soul is attained



    INTEGRITY is out the window in favor of what we can GET AWAY WITH

    GREED and it's complexities, replaces a Simple CLEAR existence

    CALLOUS NON CARING in the name of I take care of, or for, ONLY my own

    PRIVACY often disguised as SECURITY, or vice versa, has taken over common neighborliness and community

    these are all practices of people that are SCARED
    because when you treat the non winners so bad,

    you have to be scared, lest you become one.

    I MYSELF HAVE FOUND MYSELF IN A NEED TO WIN POSITION THIS WEEK
    I FOUND THAT I HAD EXCUSED AWAY MY INTEGRITY
    HAD ADOPTED GREED IN THE NAME OF VINDICATION
    DID NOT CARE WHO OR IF, I DAMAGED ANYONE OR THING
    AND PROTECTED MYSELF ONLY,

    WITHOUT REGARD TO CONSEQUENCES FOR COMMUNITY OR WORLD FAIRNESS
    ALL this while, or by, disregarding the Truth;

    that my own Energy and Actions DO MATTER on a Universal level.

    that I Create the world's reality just as much as anyone and can change it only if I change mySelf to be that which I want the world to BE

    As With IN so with OUT

    Be the Change You want to See

    We are but a Microcosm of the Universe

    can I blame the entities I sling mud at,

    if when confronted by them,

    I do as they do

    in the name of

    Winning the Game



    NO!!

    SO in this moment

    I back OFF


    YOU WIN


    short term and

    on paper


    but in the

    END OF IT ALL
    I



    with my

    Simple,

    Caring,

    Gentle,

    Generous

    INTEGRITY intact WAY
    of
    LOVE WINS
    truly

    am

    THE

    WINNER


    and the cost????


    the price is
    Fearlessly being willing to be looked on and treated

    like the

    LOOSER

    in a game in which

    winning just does not feel attractive any more



    YAY for changing the rules to

    LOVE WINS
