Winners and Losers, or Just Winners?

Last time I posted, I wrote about it’s not how the world is, but how we think about the world. Instead of coming from a mental/emotional place of stewardship, compassion, inclusion and at-one-ment, we come from a mental/emotional place of win/lose, either/or and duality. If we could know, and we can, that spirit has given us-- all of us-- dems and reps, black and white, male and female, free-loaders and hard workers, everything—that we all ready have everything, what would we do? Would we still struggle, strive and compete, or would we just share our talents, skills and gifts? Would the game of life be about winners and losers or simply about winning?


“In your own mind, though denied by the ego, is the declaration of your release,” the realization that we are one with spirit right now and not only have everything spirit has, but are everything spirit is.  “This one fact means the ego does not exist, and this makes it profoundly afraid.” To ease its fear and preserve itself, the ego will do everything it can to keep us identifying with it and its nightmare illusion of the world. It will give us cancer, start a war, and create the idea that some people are better than others and that there are winners and losers.


But each of these is an opportunity to awaken, to return to the decision maker in our minds and choose again, this time choosing spirit instead of ego. “In the ego’s language, ‘to have’ and ‘to be’ are different, but they are identical to spirit.” In our identity as spirit, we both have everything and are everything. We are one with our Source right now, always have been, always will be. The ego is a mistake, a mistaken choice. Part of us knows that right now. That’s the part we want to recognize, identify with and encourage. There’s nothing to prove, no hoops to jump thru and no waiting required. Just chose again, now.
