We’re taught from a very young age to compete with our peers. We compete in running races. We compete to win when we play games. And we compete to make better grades or be the most popular students in school. The main problem that I see with competition is that it teaches us to believe that only one person can “win.”
We believe that you can be a “winner” by placing in the top 3 or top 5 or top 10 – depending upon the “competition” you are in. But we’re conditioned to believe that there is only a top X number of spaces reserved for those who excel in whatever it is we are doing. And, if we aren’t in that top X (number), we will not be “winners.” In other words, we’re conditioned to believe that there are a finite number of winners and the rest of us are doomed to not achieve the prize.
While competition may be healthy in some ways, the fact that it conditions us to a win-or-lose mentality, and that it makes us believe that there are only a finite number of resources and those resources are reserved for the winners in life, is unhealthy at best, and simply fallible at worst.
The resources of this planet are infinite. Scientists tell us that there are a finite number of natural resources that are available. However, we have an inside source. And we have insight into the makeup of everything. Since everything (every thing that is seen and unseen, known and unknown) is made up of the same matter – energy, and since that same energy is abundant throughout our entire universe, there is no limit to the resource (energy) that is required to make other resources (whatever it is that you desire).
Newtonian physicists taught us that everything in the universe is made up of matter which was termed to be atoms. Atoms are rapidly moving molecules, vibrating at various frequencies. And although a mass of atoms may appear to be a solid thing (such as a tree), they are anything but that. Atoms were thought to be made up of three fundamental particles: protons, neutrons, and electrons which could be changed through interactions with photons &/or neutrinos. That was it. Five particles amounted to the existence of all known matter. And, within the space taken up by each atom, we were told that there was mostly empty space.
Now, quantum physicists have learned that atoms are actually made up of sub-atomic particles like pions, muons, leptons, baryons, mesons, and quarks. And although we can’t always see these sub-atomic particles within the atoms themselves, we’re told that they exist and that a single thimble-full of positively charged sub-atomic particles house enough energy to light a major
Since there is no separate “you” within the universe (we are all made of the same thing), you can see that you and I are one, you and gold are one, you and spirit are one, you and everything around you are actually connected. And, your thoughts, directed into the abundance of energy filling in the interspaces of our universe, actually affect that energy to become what ever it is you are thinking. In other words, your thoughts of a particular chair, emit a frequency that is the equivalent frequency emitted by that particular chair. If the universe is unable to find that chair and bring it to you, it simply directs some of the unused particles of energy around you to become that specific chair! How cool is that?
To Him who made all energy to begin with, causing some of that energy to become something other than unused energy vibrating at a low rate of frequency is not difficult.
