More or less is more than not at all.

Spirit tells me, and I guess it’s true, that I seem to resist accepting

That some relationships may represent no win or win-lose situations.

 

But, He claims, no-win, or win-lose relationships are usually easier to

Slip out of than are win-win ones.

 

Why would anyone want to slip out of a win-win relationship?

 

Win-win relationships, at least on the surface, seem to serve

Everyone, more or less.

 

And, He adds, more or less may be preferable to not at all.

 

That’s it?

 

Yes, for now.

The Price of Bonding

Spirit tells me that, to the extent that we each influence another,

To that extent we are consuming or being consumed into

The essence of the other. Some call this process bonding.

 

This is, He tells me, a Universal Law, wherein all separated

Aspects of life return to again become one.

 

That may be so, in the long term, but how does knowing that

Affect my life here and now?

 

Have I influenced your thinking?

 

Very much so.

 

Then, are we bonding?

 

Yes, I hope so, but I would resist being consumed.

 

Yes.

 

 

 

I’m playing a game I can’t win, and know it.

Spirit tells me that

I’m playing a game I can’t win.

Somehow, I suspect this may be true, but,

How am I supposed to respond

To Spirit’s sometimes power strategies.

 

Are they designed to weaken my resolve

To resist accepting as true,

anything that I can’t understand?

even knowing that my capacity

to understand is limited, or

Do I resist for the sake of resisting? or,

Have I developed a habit of resisting

The mind boggling concepts Spirit

Presents me with, to simply deny

The limitation of my mental capacity

To understand them?, and, if this is true,

Then why?

 

Wouldn’t it be so much easier

To simply give in, and say,

Okay, you win.

Am I just to stubborn to do so?

 

But, what if Spirit’s intention is

To encourage my capacity to resist being

A mindless sponge, or

A spineless sponge, if

There be such things.
