Are you curious?
It’s subtle, but here’s why…
You strengthen the belief that you are separate when you compete. You are also, subtly, trying to benefit yourself. Which will come at the expense of others.
And counter intuitively, this is the least beneficial for you.
Conversely, through cooperation, you begin see, understand and believe that you are connected to every other person and thing.
And this is extremely beneficial to you.
Once you have the belief that you are connected, you can’t feel lonely, isolated or unwanted and you do start feeling more connected, loved and appreciated.
When you “know” that you are connected, you know that helping others up is of great benefit to you.
Then, you not only feel connected, but you also feel fulfilled.
I’m not saying to be against competition.
I’m saying cooperation is more beneficial than competition is for you.
