    Competition is a very ugly word. Complete-partition. A division of the undivisible is immediately created. There is always a victor and a loser. We like competition, in fact our whole society is based on it, who is the best athlete, the smartest, the most wealthy, the most powerful, the most enlightened.

    Ironically, it meant in olden days to strive or seek together. In modern use, to be put in rivalry with.

    The only competition that should occur is with oneself not others. To always excel and not make the same mistakes again. That competition is called completion, fulfillment, when it is over, rivalry for supremacy of oneself, there is no loser. It is the termination of ones own inner division.
