The best athlete
wants his opponent at his best.
The best general
enters the mind of his enemy.
The best businessman
serves the communal good.
The best leader
follows the will of the people.

All of them embody
the virtue of non-competition.
Not that they don’t love to compete,
but they do it in the spirit of play.
In this they are like children
and in harmony with the Tao.

Children love to play. And, ironically, even though children seem to be wired to play, they’re the best learners in the world. The uninhibited, carefree nature of children, in a way, allows them to absorb their world through the medium of awe. Awe, to me, can be a powerful tool. When you fully sense the sublime organization of the world and accept it, there is only more to seek and little else to fear. Fear is rarely a characteristic attributed to children unless they feel a sense of abandonment–otherwise children generally feel content, and are able to accomplish many things effortlessly.
