John-Roger, DSS from The Tao of Spirit

Watch out when you win an argument. That means someone else lost. If you are loving that person, you are then part of the loss. If you are not loving that person, you have your work cut out for you.

As for me, if there is a conflict with another human being and someone declares it a win-lose situation, I'd choose the loss.

I'd rather lose my ego, my position, my need to be right than win. I'd rather that someone I love learn from their winning than I inflict a loss on them. That's a heavier loss than I prefer.

- John-Roger, D.S.S.
(From: The Tao of Spirit, p. 81)
