For a moment erase competition, then what are we left with? While competition can be deemed as squaring off with players to a certain goal. There are components that make up what one can fight for. Usually, the answer is of winning or losing. Investigating a bit in the turn, there is a drive? In the cockpit of the drive, is the motive, purpose, and intent. It could be the exercise, or down to the response of the action. We could swing up to building physical and mental strength, also reflexiveness. It could even touch on the feelings and just the pure sport of playing.
While the conductor of a musical ensemble leads with the baton, there needs to be harmony from an instrument to the orchestra to have the whole piece come together. This goes as of life.

You start with yourself. You begin with what you can grasp. Ask yourself a daily question about how to live in respects to harmony in life. Questions of life can help keep the fire going inside of you. You fuel yourself each day, the questions become deeper and precise in respects. And your understanding becomes appreciative.

Love works in the most mysterious ways. In love, there is a special understanding to make sense of the sacred bond. That sacred bond needs a mutual connection, not in the ways of individual directions. With the many things that goes on in our heads, it could make a bit of separateness.

As we live with love in our hearts, we can gently peel away the hundred veils in our lives and discover true love. And ultimately in love, we can move beyond steps and hold each other with open arms.

We can call this link the possibility, hope, and love. These are values that can go through gaps and even does not have to see the lines. Once you have yourself together again, centered and ready, just step over the line. Really, there is no line.

One of the greatest challenges in life is to realize that all we need is right in front of us. As we jump from each pedal of life’s circumstance and directions, an opening stands on each lily. Between the water and air, sits a thin film grasps the two bodies together so that the pedal could be stable and secure. Though, pedals in this context are potentials and the circle of life around us is on the place that we stand. Within each pedal we can touch its potential. We could even go through the pedals within grasp of the greater pedal. Realizing the potential of what we have, we have an opportunity to give its proper growth.
