Acceptance and Contentment

Spirit shares His understanding of timeless wisdom.
He tells me that acceptance is contentment.

How can I feel content about accepting something
that I can’t change?

What else would you feel?

Defeated.

In losing a battle you know or believe that you
never could win?

What else could I feel?

Satisfied with yourself that you did, if you did,
everything you could do to win.

And satisfaction is contentment?

In this case, yes.

Are we referring to a specific case?

Yes and no.

As particular and general?

Yes.

Thinking is a game

Spirit tells me that thinking is a game and perhaps He’s right.I somehow need to struggle with ideas and Spirit provides me (bless His soul), with a seemingly endless supply of these.

Sometimes I think I know the what and why of a particular mental challenge He slips into my mind, but, before I can take hold of the how, it slips away, as my inner resources suddenly collapse, as a balloon does, when filled to beyond capacity with hot air.

Spirit smiles at my distress and suggests that I accept that there are games in this world, and beyond, that are beyond me, at least for now, and that I should be able to recognize games that I can’t yet win.

Stop. He spoke of this world and beyond. Now I challenge Him. How can there be a beyond if there is only one world?

“There is and yet there will always be a beyond”.

“As in Buzz Lightyear’s “to infinity and beyond”? (Buzz is a Toy Story character).”

“Yes and no.”

“How?”

“Our world expands to infinity, and expanding awareness is our mode of travel.”

How can I argue with such beautiful logic?
