What shall we speak about? Shall we speak of the need to reinforce the argument for and against our beliefs? Or shall we just accept the inevitable and continue on with our lives? Our dearest has an idea of what we are alluding to. Do you not, dearest?
Yes, I believe I appreciate the gist of what you are saying.
Which is, dearest?
I have reached a state of mind that does not need to pursue the ‘for or against’ argument upon any subject, so to speak. I remain open to the knowing that there is not one line of thought that embodies sufficient completeness to denote the thought processes, upon any subject, that aligns itself to an unquestioning roundness of understanding.
What you are saying, dearest, is that it is impossible for any two to agree upon a subject without there being variances of opinion. Yes?
Yes, and more. I also don’t believe that we are capable of fully understanding any given subject. There will always be a deeper, more profound appreciation around the corner, so to speak. Throughout history this has been the case. With further investigation and greater knowledge comes change. To think that we ‘know anything at all’ is to limit ourselves to a moment in time.
And you prefer to remain open, dearest?
Yes I do.
And this requires patience, dearest?
I wouldn’t say that patience is required. Perhaps a degree of serenity is needed.
Yes. When the mind is quieted the need to feel that one understands anything at all becomes irrelevant.
Yes. The sense that I have today could be likened to a river that flows ever onward. It does not have need to cater to those who live within it; nor does it try to understand those who live within it. It knows that its course will continue. It will encounter new possibilities here and there. It will also encounter many varied responses to similar experiences that it has had; and will allow all their own particular fashion of thinking.
Are you talking about the ability to live and let live, dearest?
I do believe that sums it up quite nicely…
