Seeking Victory

In daily lives, should we seek victory in such a competition crazed society? No, it is better not to contend. We cannot be defeated if we choose not to contend. Know that when there is no contention, there can be neither defeat nor victory. That which is flexible does not contend against the force against it and survives to live another day. The brush that is washed properly after use remains flexible and can be used again. The unwashed brush becomes hard, unbending, and therefore unusable. The building built to sway in an earthquake stands, the one that is rigid is toppled.
