I've never been very competitive.
There's nothing wrong with competition. After all, it's the foundation of the capitalist system, athletics, businesses, politics, television ratings, games and even relationships. In fact, humans are, by nature, pretty darn competitive. That doesn't mean that I get it.
When I was a kid, I hung out with a tribe of neighborhood boys. We had a leader, an alpha, and he had his sidekick. I was always fascinated with the dynamics of the group. I came to the realization that I could actually manipulate the hierarchy by some pretty simple techniques. It didn't take me long to realize that those in charge aren't always in charge and that sometimes being competitive can blind you to what's really important.
If you don't think we live in a competitive society, try the following experiment. Go to any store or boutique, and begin looking at something in a corner of the store not usually frequented by shoppers. Soon, you'll find yourself surrounded by other shoppers trying to figure out exactly what it is you're going to get before they do.
It doesn't make intellectual sense, but it's how we're wired. It's how we've survived. By being competitive, we assure ourselves of being able to be in the right place at the right time, to grab that extra piece of fruit, or to claim the best cave so that we and our families can stay warm and safe for the night.
Lately we've seen competition that seems to be rooted in greed, made all the more shocking by an astounding lack of ethics. I'm referring to the recent bicycling scandal that's rocked the sport. In this case, it involved an alpha male, so competitive, and so intent on winning that nothing else mattered. Not only was there rampant coercion, cheating and intimidation, but also repeated lying and threats to those who opted to tell the truth.
Baseball has been permanently smeared by the handful of cheating athletes who used unethical and illegal means to obtain their goals. Bigger biceps meant bigger stats and bigger endorsements and fame. Imagine, once upon a time, cheating in baseball was pitching a ball with spit on it.
It seems to me that most of the impetus for this lack of ethical standards is due to that greedy, competitive spirit, its jaws unhinged and ready to devour anything in its path. When is it enough?
We live in an age where our collective competitive spirit has grown so strong that some people will do anything they can in order to win an advantage over others. Sixth graders are often worried about their future SAT scores, something their parents have been worried about since Nursery School.
I vaguely remember taking the SAT. Let's just say that I didn't get the proper rest the night before.
There are those who've accused me of being competitive. This is actually due to my being irritated when facts are twisted. I'm quick to correct dates, point our anachronisms in period films, argue about the cast members of television sitcoms, or point out the inconsistencies in a way of thinking. I especially bristle when metaphysical subjects are distorted or misrepresented. This could be seen as competitive, but in actuality, all I'm trying to doing is set the record straight.
Okay, I'm also a bit of a curmudgeon.
Luckily, I've learned that I'm not always right. Years ago, a hot debate erupted about who played "Eddie" in the movie version of, "The Courtship of Eddie's Father." It taught me a valuable lesson. Although I was convinced to my core that I was right, I was utterly, adamantly and spectacularly wrong. This stunning occurrence led me to the sane understanding that there are times to keep my mouth shut, even if I'm sure I'm right. (The correct answer? Ronnie Howard, NOT Eddie Hodges.)
If you happen to be the competitive type, good for you. I make no judgments and I'd never say that what you're doing is wrong. Be who you are. Competition is important to our economic structure and to the very safety and security of our families, friends and nations.
If you aren't competitive, don't feel bad. Relax and accept yourself as you are.
As for me, I think I'd rather shuffle up my tarot cards and see what they have to say, or knit for a while. Or better yet, I'll rub our Golden Retriever's belly, an activity for which there's simply no competition.

This week magic was whispering in my ear. Some recent events spoke of the miraculous ways that our requests to the Universe can be delivered. Magic is what happens when you recognize your intention has been created. The universe has responded to your call for transformation. On our end of this miracle, we might ask, why then, does it often take years to see the outcomes of our desires?
Every sincere request seems to have has its own time-line, and often what creates the need for a "time-line" is clearing the blocks and fears we have. When we are wrapped in fear we are like prisoners tied to what we fear. We become hostages tucked away on the inside of a building. How many doors are between you and your miracle? When you first make your request, the universe begins opening doors. Perhaps the first door is realization of your true request. The next door might be a whole catalog of beliefs that don't serve you, like "I never get what I ask for." Or, "Things just get worse, no matter what." Or, I know I am a burden, so I shouldn't ask for anything." These beliefs can include such tricksters as, "I should be realistic," and assumes reality is a concrete wall, when, in actuality it is a state of mind.
The barriers to receiving are the doors the Universe must open to free you to receive the miracle. This is why surrender and faith keep our dreams alive, as we intend and ask for our miracles. When all the doors have been opened, an amazing event occurs. The miracle you have been waiting for arrives. This moment is what I call MAGIC.* Is it less magical for a miracle to arrive nine years after the request? What if you decided to melt the walls that hold the doors between you and your request, so that your miracle shows up like hotcakes off the griddle?

I have been thinking a lot about happiness lately. I live with 5 cats, who are tremendous examples of happiness. As I write this my kitty, Sandy, is asleep on my lap with the most content smile on her face. One thing I have learned from watching cat happiness is that happiness comes from being, not doing. My cats do very little throughout the day, but seem to be the most content and peaceful beings I know. It is a funny myth most of us grew up with that happiness comes from hard work and perseverance. I'm pretty sure that happiness actually comes from just being ourselves, and not getting too hung up on what we have or have not accomplished.
Sandy had a rough start to life. I found her outside a gas station when she was about 8 weeks old. She was dirty and skinny and sick. It took six months to get her little body functioning normally so she could start growing. That was 2 years ago and now she is a happy, healthy cat. The interesting thing is that she seems unaffected by her past. She is happy and carefree and obviously feels safe and loved. The fact that her kitty mind can't relive her past and fret about her future is a huge contributor to her happiness. She lives in the moment, and everything is great in this moment. This is where we humans get hung up.
Over the past several years I have worked to cultivate a "All is well in the here and now" attitude. It is a challenge not to lament the past and worry about the future. When I catch myself thinking about somewhere other than here and now I remind myself to stop and look around. Is everything ok in this moment? If so, then I remind myself that I am ok, and right now is all I have control over. If everything is not ok in that very moment then I have the opportunity to make a change, right then when I actually have some control. I am not saying that this is easy or that I don't get stuck in cycles of over thinking the past and future. This definitely happens, but I can usually bring myself back to a sense of peace by returning to the moment.
My Dad is dying of Prostate Cancer. He has been on Hospice for 8 months and his condition deteriorates a little more each day. I see him every other day and do my best to spend quality time talking and laughing with him. This has been a real challenge to my "live in the moment" philosophy. I know what is coming and that makes it hard not to worry about the future. I know I can't change it or control it, but my ego has a strong desire to predict what is coming and worry about things I can't possibly do anything about. I continue to work at bringing myself back to the now when worries about my Dad surface. Somedays I handle it great, I feel happy and see my life going in a positive direction.
Other days are much harder. I think that what I am doing is practicing happiness, kind of like practicing the Clarinet or practicing meditation. Each day presents a new challenge to be here now. I know that true happiness is fluid, and that real emotions still occur. It is the ability to return to a happy state after a troubling experience or emotion that indicates that we truly are happy on the inside.
Here is a picture of Sandy doing what she does best!
Blessings of happiness my friends,
