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.

Is Acceptance Necessarily Contentment?

Spirit 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 as 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.

I should be able to recognize games that I

Cannot 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.
