Why Competition is a BIG Fat Lie

Why competitionis a big fat lie

Buy or bury the competition.

It incites worry and amplifies the strength of our insecurities — what if someone does it better than you? What if they just are better than you? The outdated dog-eat-dog mindset that competition is king is one of the biggest lies we’ve ever been told and, as a society, we are now faced with the detrimental outcomes of the resulting imbalance. We only need to look around at the crumbling systems and structures of the world’s elite, whose journey is paved with pain, suffering (and worse) for themselves and everyone involved. Competition is not creation – it is taking away from others, causing suffering. This is simply not sustainable.
With a competitive mindset, there is never ever enough, only a void to be filled with more and more. Desires are purely external factors, like more money, more fame, more attention. When this energy manifests with conflict and control, fear has taken the reins and we experience a raft of behaviours triggered from an energy of proving, struggling, achieving to prove worthiness, and feeling fear of not being loved or accepted.
Darwin’s theory of biological change was based on competition, or survival of the fittest, among the individuals making up a species. What he failed to take into account was the interdependent relationships between living things, called symbiosis, in which completely different forms of life depend on each other to exist.
The underlying concept of competition that society is programmed with is a bawled faced lie. Worse – it’s an unnecessary lie and it’s getting old. The pursuit of “success at any cost” will probably bring about the very opposite. Because we’ve been brought up with the belief that competition is inherent to success, we often look at others as possible threats, whether that’s fighting for a partner or a promotion. The truth is that when you compare and compete, you immediately eliminate your ability to be happy for someone else, and you rob another person of the capacity to be happy for you one day. Everyone deserves to be celebrated for the accomplishments they have created for themselves. People deserve to be taken for who they are, and not categorised by how they fare in comparison to their peers.

There's enough for everyone's need, not everyone's greed.

At this time in the history of humanity, whole systems are transitioning on a personal and planetary scale, affecting every aspect of life and relationship, as we know it. Patterns of possibility are emerging that have never before been available to our world, provided we can achieve balance. Our fullest potential is found in the weaving and balancing of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine energies within ourselves.  Regardless of your past experiences and choices, you always have the option of embracing each of these energies where they are. Only then can you understand what they need to become more whole and integrated within you for a more balanced version of yourself. As within, so without. As society begins to take on a new shape, workers will require collaboration, not competition.
