Since I was little I have loved football and watched the World Cup with much pleasure.  However, I feel uncomfortable with competition as it evokes separation of nations into winners and loosers. Sport should unite, uplift and bring pleasure.

We should not let it get us down when our team looses.
We should not develope animosity towards the other team.
We should not allow a game of football to cause sadness.
We should not evoke negative energy.

Instead we need to celebrate the game and play it in the spirit of brotherhood,  knowing we are not loosers because we did not win the match, knowing we are not better or worse than anyone else.  Acknowledging it is just a ball game and celebrate all the goals and appreciate the talent of all the players… for the love of the game.

Watching the Football World Cup makes me see how the game of imitates life.

The Commentators & Media:
They are the eyes and voice that bring the game into our homes.
They relay the facts as objectively as possible.
They keep us informed, share their expert opinion
and provide the data.

The Referee and Linesmen:
They monitor the game and determine its flow.
Some will judge fairly, others misjudge.
Some judge egotistically, others with fairness.
Their decisions affect the crowd and players.
Their ruling determines the mood of the game.

The Players:
The passion and love they have for the game.
Their hard work training to harness their talent.
Their sportsmanship and their reactions.
They will either tackle dirty or they will play with integrity.
Some play with their ego, others with their soul.
They cry and rejoice according to the result.

The Crowd:
All the emotions are felt in every moment on and off the pitch.
The passion, excitement, anguish and stress the crowd go through watching the game.
The anger and frustration when they feel the referee was unfair towards their team.
The hatred sometimes projected against the opposition.
The sadness when their team loses.
The jubilation when their team wins.

What amazes me the most is that they all look to the heavens.
They all pray for their team to win.
They do not realize that God, the Almighty, the Universe… is neutral.

Spirit does not choose sides.
Spirit does not have favourites amongst its children.
Spirit does not see competion.
Spirit does not see winners and losers.
Spirit enjoys the game as a neutral spectator.
Spirit celebrates the talent of all.
Spirit knows this is just a sport for the ego.
Spirit has fun because it sees all as One team playing a game.
