There is no competition. The need to grow and keep growing to infinity and beyond is a human construct. The reality is that if I win someone looses. The bigger picture is that it is a zero sum gain.
All we need to do is to take enough for our needs. We do not need much. It is not possible to own the world.
We need to learn what true happiness and contentment means. What is the true value of things, of life?
Everyone seems to engage in the mindless activity of chasing our own tails. It goes no where. We only end up hurting ourself and everybody.
