Tao Te Ching Chapter 68-5 No competition
This is called attainment by no competition. (Ch.68)
Why does Lao Tzu ask you not to compete or fight?
Because competition and fight are forms of resistance.
They are refusal of acceptance.
First, you accept the world, which is your hologram.
Second, you are one with Tao, that is to say, you remember that true You are Tao and your own self is just part of the hologram.
Third, remembering You = Tao is the attainment of Tao. This is also called Dark Depth Attainment 玄徳 [gen toku].
Fourth, while accepting your hologram, you emit the fundamental energy Tao, which is True You or which you can call Love.
Fifth, Tao, or Love, is out there. Now you go back to the first step and accept it through the hologram.
We keep this cycle.

Tao answers your question!
☞The company's name Lotte was named after Charlotte Sophie Henriette Buff, the heroine of Goethe's «The Sorrows of Young Werther». Now the company owns two baseball clubs in Chiba, Japan and Busan, South Korea, and sells «Koala no march / The march of Koalas», or Lotte Koala Cookie Chocolate, which is believed to be one of the sweets most sought-after by tourists. Is this the result of a never-ending fight and competition? No, it is the happy ending of a love for baseball and sweets. Our beloved Lotte is always "the sweetheart of your mouth" (or our champions at heart).
