Question from the Internet:
“What are the downsides of always winning?”
In our present state, with our present attitude, intentions “winning” always means winning against others, winning against Nature.
With our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, subjective, and individualistic calculations, intentions we are constantly surviving, succeeding at each other’s and Nature’s expense.
Thus our “winning” is the “success of cancer”, winning, succeeding till the point of self-destruction.
Obviously, we cannot suppress or erase our competitive urges, our constant need for more, our yearning to succeed, to progress. But we can learn how to compete in a positive, constructive manner, when we want to succeed for the sake of all of us, we want to become the best, most successful in order to actively, consciously sustain the general balance and homeostasis of the whole system for life to develop.
Thus we can change competition from something destructive to constructive and positive through the right, “Integral Education” that teaches us life, competition, development according to Nature’s integral blueprint.
