Competitors and Love
« on: October 29, 2015, 12:40:39 am »
It is extremely difficult for me to have good emotions for my competitors.
I fully undestand that we should all have the ability to work out our bread peacufully and with a spirit of kindness, but inside me I feel that if my competitors will be given the chance they will not hesitate to steal my bread. This is just the corperative culture in my country.
I ended up to the conlusion that the optimum solution is to ignore them.
Is this ignorance against the philosophy of Buddhism?

Perhaps a small shift in perspective is needed?, just by changing the words you use can bring about this change, try changing the word competitor too Friend, someone you can learn from.  :anjali:

Mean spirited competition is prone to sabotage and mutual disrespect. Healthy competition is when there is mutual respect and a gain from competing for both involved, healthy competition can be a way to drive up the quality of what you do.

Try to accept your hatred, don't deny it, then get over it and it will passed along with time passed. Sometimes we are too hard to ourselves rather than accepting that we are human who's in learning progress. Act as our great teacher taught us, based on 5 sila, with understanding, acceptance and awareness, hopefully we can become more wise in this lifetime, which certainly more easier to said than do.
