Giving Space: Winning and Losing

In zazen today my mind became occupied and challenging...

I could see quite clearly that competitiveness is a function of the ego that only wants to win. And what if I do win? I may feel smug for a while, but then that would just be more ego stuff. At the end of the day, winning and losing...   It doesn't matter. I am what I am and my choice is just to go through life looking within myself in meditation, for that is where all my answers truly lay.

Tut, tut!!!  I may tut... But that's just another form of judgment!   Give space to what emerges, even the tut-tutting if it arises..  It is not about winning and losing...  Giving space is about transformation.
