Spirit tells me that to accept people, situations, and relationships
As they are is not possible without first knowing what they are,
And that it may not be possible to know more than what
They seem to be.
Perhaps the answer is to accept what seems to be.
To each individual.
Let’s bring it closer to home.
Tell me that you will try to accept what seems to be, until it seems
To be other than it seems to be, now.
If there is no general consensus on how things are, then how
Can we relate to people with different understandings of
What seems to be?
Dialogue offers an opportunity share our personal understanding
And to learn how others view the same situation.
Others may see something that we do not, and we might share
Something that others have missed.
Of course, even dialogue may still result in our view being
Dismissed by the other, or we may dismiss the other views.
In which case…?
Then we see Life as we see it and let others see it their way.
