Spirituality is non-competitive. Hence, there is no scope for winning or losing in it.

Spirituality Means Turning Towards the Soul

When two atoms of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen get together, it automatically becomes water. This is because it is science; one does not have to do anything in it. Similarly, the property of the Absolute Soul too is to do nothing (so there’s no question of winning or losing); its function is to only see and know everything, always!

“I did not enter the racecourse of the worldly life. That is how I found this Lord within.”

~ Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan, an enlightened being.

You will run in the racecourse (enter into a competition of winning or losing) for countless lives and you will still be cheated at the end. This is how the world is. Everything will go to waste and on top of that, you will also suffer miserably in the process. Instead, discover your rightful place, your home of bliss, the Soul (the real Self) and then run to it.

Those who enter a racecourse have to suffer the pain, so it is not worth entering a racecourse

“And the prize goes only to the one who comes first (wins the race), does it not? The rest (those losing) are left wandering around life after life. They die huffing and puffing and gain nothing. How can then one enter a racecourse of the world with that kind of justice? What do you think?” asks Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan.

People suffer because they compete, because they enter into a competition, they get into a race where one will die huffing and puffing without getting anywhere.

Wherever you look, there is a racecourse. Everyone has entered the racecourse. If two bullocks are walking side by side and one tries to get ahead of the other just a little, the other will exert all the more. It is because they have entered the racecourse (into competition). If the two are walking side by side and one of them gets ahead a little, the one left behind will feel jealous and wonder how he can make the other person fall behind. There is no winner in this race of jealousy.

One’s personality is apparent the moment one exits the racecourse

Rather, just watch the competition; you have to simply ‘see’ which horse (one in the race competition) comes first. When one continues to simply ‘see’ (the function of the Soul), then the ‘seer’ (the Soul) has no pain or suffering. Such a human being radiates peace and harmony. Nobody running in the racecourse has any personality.

So why not run away from this racecourse (towards spirituality)! Let us discover our true domain…it is, oh my…gigantic”!

As long as there is ignorance of the Self, the ego is alive, and until then it is in some form of doer-ship, ‘I should do something. I should progress somehow. I should become famous.’ And if that is not the case, then due to association with others, by seeing others, the rivalry of, ‘I want to be better than him’ indeed occurs, and consequently competition arises.

There is no problem in one getting ahead, but because he does not have capacity to do so on his own, he brings others down, or impedes them, and if that is how he gets ahead, then that is grossly wrong. He does not have the attributes to become superior, so he destroys other’s superiority in order to make them inferior to him. Only then does he become superior in their comparison, right? And from that arises competition, which leads to enmity, causing worldly wandering.

The Gnanis’ method is to win over the world by letting others win!!!

So come, let’s go to Gnani and in his shelter, grow in spirituality, rather than entering a racecourse and go through the pains of winning and losing.

Author's Bio: 

Ambalal M. Patel was a civil contractor by profession. In June 1958, spontaneous Self-Realization occurred within Ambalal M. Patel. From this point on, Ambalal became a Gnani Purush, and the Lord that manifested within him became known as Dada Bhagwan. A Gnani Purush is One who has realized the Self and is able to help others do the same. Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan used to go from town to town and country-to-country to give satsang (spiritual discourse) and impart the knowledge of the Self, as well as knowledge of harmonious worldly interactions to everyone who came to meet him. This spiritual science, known as Akram Vignan, is the step-less path to Self-realization.
