If you want to be incrementally better: Be competitive. If you want to be exponentially better: Be cooperative.
Every chapter in the Book of Life defines our character and tells us who we are
All ups and downs help you to find a balance in your being. No more ups and downs, but bliss, joy, silence and gratitude.
Just as the soft rains fill the streams, pour into the rivers and join together in the oceans, so may the power of every moment of your goodness flow forth to awaken and heal all beings.
