I’ve been on vacation in Maine all week with my family. We have a great time at my Dad’s house. One of the best parts is that we love to play games. We’ve been adding some new games to our repertoire on this trip: Bocce Ball and Rummikub.

I remember how competitive I used to feel. I used to get really upset if I made a “bad” move, or if I missed an opportunity. I’d get really upset about the game if I didn’t play well.

What I love now is being able to enjoy myself just as much regardless of who wins or who loses. It really is the joy of playing that matters.

In my classes lately, folks have been talking about the pain and suffering they experience when they compare themselves to others.

There’s no point in comparing. None. It’s just a trick of the ego to help you feel more separate. It always leads to suffering. It doesn’t matter if you compare and think you’ve come out ahead or lacking – since there’s only one, either way you just feel more separate.

Last night we were even comparing the size of the pieces of blueberry pie my Dad made. There’s no end to comparisons. Best idea is not to even start!
