As you can see in this small video clip:
https://www.clippituser.tv/c/bnyynv

A soccer player from Sweden was pushed right as he was going to score. The referee refused to penalize the German player you committed the obvious foul.

When I see things like this, I have a number of reactions:
- I want to get revenge on the cheating referee
- I want to get revenge on the fouling player
- I want to quit watching World Cup soccer because it appears to be rigged (for instance, they did not publicize the blood tests of the Russian athletes. That is in addition to this clear case of favoritism in refereeing and other things.)

How would one find peace and make it be OK that cheating like this does not go punished?

If you identify with a player or the referee or one of the teams then you will of course react to the situation.

To remain at peace you need to be exterior to the game and all its sub-games.
You are just watching a contest between all parties INVOLVED so you see the multiple games going on but are not emotionally affected by who wins or loses.

It might help to think:
Who will care 100 years from now?
Who cares on the other side of the planet?
These are exterior very detached viewpoints so do not rouse emotional responses in these persons in remote locations in time or space.
Assume such a remote unaffected viewpoint yourself and just observe the multiple games being played. Team versus team is a game, player versus player within the game is another game, referee- was he bribed? Is another game.
Observe and file the information away as at the most interesting(you were watching so it was interesting to you) make judgements like: some people cheat, some referees get bribed or are blind or have taken sides etc.
Now carry on with life.
What are you doing that is important to you and your family and your community. Put your attention on those things.

Keep on TROMing

Pete, your reply was excellent. However at one point you wrote:

Observe and file the information away as at the most interesting(you were watching so it was interesting to you) make judgements like: some people cheat, some referees get bribed or are blind or have taken sides etc.

- But I dont believe the word "at" should be between "as" and "the"...
- And grammatically I'm not able to follow what you wrote when you said: "make judgements like".. should there have been a period after the phrase "most interesting" and a new sentence started with "Make"?

If you remove the word “at” then the games become the Most interesting thing which leaves you involved and upset. What you want to do is reduce the games importance to as low a point as possible.
If it was zero importance it would not exist for you. Since you were watching it, it is at least a little bit interesting so you can reduce your interest to that little bit.
The best course is to reduce your interest to zero and forget all about it.

Make judgement like.  Every being can make comparisons between things they perceive and decide or make judgements that one is more important than another or that something happened as evidenced by what they perceived.
So if you see a referee ignore a foul you can make a decision or judgement that the referee did not see what happened or was paid to look the other way or whatever. By deciding what happened you “as is” part of the event and can let go of the upset concerning what happened. It make take several reviews for you to completely let go of a very upsetting event.

Excellent advice, Pete.  In many sessions where I saw my past existences I was at first the actor and then my viewpoint extended out as I blew off the actor persona fixation, until finally I saw myself as originally the writer/producer, and there were all these beings watching the "movie". I always felt kind of hehe silly, having taken my acting role too seriously.

The problem with segments of Scientology church is they wanted you to invert your dynamics.  Bring up the condition of the first and second dynamic before obsessing about 3rd and 4th and 5th and 6th. 
Dennis advised being in good body and brain health to well DIY TROM.

Like athlete Wayne Gretsky once said, when you are on the playing field, taking an exterior viewpoint to your own body and the bodies of the "others" makes these 3rd and 4th dynamic games so much more fun.  Dennis says Level Four should enable this exterior viewpoint.

Yes there might be "cheaters" in the game - those with non-life goals or not acting for the greatest good - but a being who has cleared all its overts/motivators re the games they choose to play or watch even - well the attitude is it will always come out for good for that being, win or lose.   

"All things work together for good" is a great attitude.  For example, when our last-legs car suddenly breaks down, I've become quite philosophical and simply ask, "How could this be a good thing?" 

My personal insight re televised games is they are all rigged (sorry, but yes), and the consequences for that poor referee would be death times 100, thanks to our local Techno Gods.  Now if you really want to play a high level game, go after those ill-intentioned brothers and sisters who know your mind better than you do and can simply turn a dial on a console, if you get my drift. 

So, like Pete advised, maybe we should take a sabbatical from world changing games and first learn to be complementary with the biochemistry and anatomy of our body and its native self-healing restorative intelligence, and clear out all mental fixations, and go exterior, and find someone who wants to go with you on this sane journey. 

The [unreasonable] fun and games await you.
