We incomplete humans must compete to be complete.
We have to compete with the gang of 4 — complacency, mediocrity, passivity, and apathy. These 4 want us to give up before we even get started on our way to completion.
We have to compete with our genes. We all come programmed with a rebellious, self-seeking, destructive, desire-drive nature that strives to keep us off the track of completion and caught up with living a life of depletion and deletion.
We have to compete with the constraints of conformity and group think. Culture is not very kind to those who seek to find a way from crushing confusion to creative completion.
We have to compete with the many discouraging and defeating obstacles that get in our way, both in our circumstances and in our attitude.
We have to compete with and wrestle with many evil spiritual forces that seek to hold us in spiritual darkness under their control and obeying their whims.
To be effective in this great lifetime competition we need an advocate, a trainer, a coach. Without one, it’s too easy to quit.
Our Advocate calls out through heart innernet connection, ready to download all that we need to successfully compete. However, we humans tend to think that we are okay without the Advocate, so we stumble around, disguising and denying our failures, pretending that we are competitive in life, when we don’t have a prayer.
Straight is the gate and narrow is the way that leads to life and few find it — few compete to be elite spiritual athletes. That’s sad. Unfathomable transformational opportunities are ignored as we drift in silent despair (or dandy denial) down decades-long ruts of the same ole same ole.
