The joy of my life is to find the one item in the closet that I can throw out ... it's great! Elizabeth has three of everything and doesn't want to throw anything out. So it means that when I want to find something, I can't find it because I've thrown it out; and when she wants to find something, she can't find it because she's got so much stuff..
We might suppose that once we see the game, the game will be over - but no. That's like telling someone who is quite drunk not to be drunk. We are drunk, perpetually.
There is no paradise lost, none to be regained. Why? Because you cannot avoid this moment. You may not be awake to it, but it is always here. You cannot avoid paradise. You can only avoid seeing it.
As the saying goes, we gain acceptance of the things we cannot change, courage to change what needs to be changed, and wisdom to know the difference.
