TCR II

I have no idea if this will make it into TCR II, but I found a note today that I’d written about this concept ages ago and tried to turn it into something that someone would say…

Listen, the universe has a lot more black matter than stars. It’s just the way things are.  It would be a shame if you spent your whole life staring at the sky, angry because there is too much space between the stars. It’s the dark matter that gives the light meaning. There’s just enough of both, so long as you’re willing to accept things as they are, not as you want them to be.

Once you give up on trying to make the world into what you think it should be, you can get on with making something worth having out of what it is.  There isn’t a lot of ego in acceptance, but there isn’t a lot of pain in it either.
