Competition. Why do we compete? What is it that creates this need to be better than anyone else? To be the “winner”? To be the “best”? What are you attempting to gain? What are you attempting to hide? What are you trying to feel?
Our society feeds on competition. This need to be better than anyone else. To be the top dog. The best athlete. The winning team. The better nation. And, we pay people who buy into the competition need. The best pitcher tends to get the most money on the best team. The teams fight over who gets the best player. The Valedictorian. The best employee. How does it make us feel when we are not better than someone else? Do you feel neglected? Unimportant? Fearful no one will like you? Anxious? Stressed? Upset? What is the driving need to be better than anyone else? Or someone else?
“The only person you need to be better than is the person you were yesterday.” – Unknown
When we continue to buy into competition, we are fueling drama. We are fueling dueling. We are fueling our egos. We are judging and comparing. If we take that same energy and discover what we can do better today in our own being, we then can create inner joy & love of ourselves. This inner joy & love then radiates outwards. We then become a magnet for more abundance in our lives. More love & joy. We are working towards being our best self. And, when we are working at ourselves, drama stops. Fighting stops. We no longer are feeding our egos, but we are feeding our souls. This brilliant energy of Love & Light transcends and helps us ascend towards the heaven on earth we can share with others. You are not competing with yourself, you are bettering yourself. You are not fighting with who you were yesterday, you are accepting who you were yesterday, and realizing you are able to change that person for the better.
Like the Fire Dragon, let out your inner fires to burn brightly and rise above all that is not who you truly are at heart.
By fueling our inner souls, we become better than who we were yesterday.Our hopes and dreams begin to manifest. Our wishes start to come true. The love we crave is found within. The happiness we’ve wanted is ours for the taking. It’s all within us. It’s not outside of us by competing with others. It’s encouraging others. It’s helping others. It’s showing others it’s more important to cultivate a more balanced and centered self. It’s helping lead the way to a more balanced and centered society. It’s being the example of true Love & Light. It’s becoming One with the entire self, the higher self, the best self. It’s reveling and celebrating the wonderful, unique, talented and gifted person you already are within you. You are simply changing from one way to another way and letting the higher self burn brightly.
May you use your energy to better yourself.
