Life’s Trump Card

Imagine you’re playing a card game. A very unusual card game. Matter of fact, it’s a game you play every day. It’s called, “Life”. Every day, you’re dealt the cards of your life situation. Every day the same other player wins. Here’s today’s play.

The cards are dealt: today’s life situation.

The first player throws out a judgment. “It shouldn’t be like this!”

The next player tosses in an expectation. “I’m disappointed.”

The third player slams down an argument. “Dammit, that pisses me off.”

Still another player offers a preference. “I don’t like that.”

Another plays a feeling. “That makes me feel sad.”

Yet another confidently plays a belief. “The Book promises I’ll be saved from this.”

The final player pushes a card out, face down. Slowly he turns the card over. It reads, “What is.” He reaches out, and gathers everyone’s chips, just as he does day after day.

Like it or not, what is trumps everything. You can’t beat it, but you can split the winnings by learning to accept the present moment as it is.

Do you want to bet against what is?
