iiWii

To the Power of E

The “Wii” is recognized as, “Games that are easy to play and fun for everyone.” Less well known and recognized is “iiWii”. According to the Urban Dictionary, it is the acronym for, “Kind of Zen-ish generic response to a wide range of stupid what and why type questions.”

It Is What It Is

The definition continues:

iiwii – pronounced (‘e’-‘wee’) – It Is What It Is. 1) An all encompassing short word to sum up an agreed upon and or well understood simple and obvious situation or action. 2) A simple reply to an obvious statement of fact of which there is little or nothing that can be done to change the situation or action.

Many times, the response to an unpleasantness is expressed by, “Well, you can’t fix stupid.”

Or, in other words an acceptance of, “It Is What It Is.”

Does anyone actually believe they are stupid? We, all, do “stupid” things. Does that make us stupid?

Reality is our perception of it.

From our vantage point, we see “stupid people” every day. Or, are they (just like us) doing the very best they can with what they know and what they have? I’ve taken the time to interview a few and, sure enough, they assure me they are doing their best!

The point is: They think they have done their best. I think they are behaving stupidly.

It Is What It Is

For a fact, the beliefs are different. By default, they must be: We are unique creations, one-of-a-kind, broke-the-mold, and very special in the greater scheme of the Universe.

Yet, we are not the center of that universe. We have this “perch of a view” that is uniquely ours. Think about the stories of: an accident, where everyone has a different account of what happened; a tax return, where a dozen accountants each come up with a different result; even, this tome, which will touch each person differently.

If the question is: Why? The answer is: We all see it differently because of our individual, and unique, education and experience. Same set of facts: different conclusions by each and every participant.

It Is What It Is

This is what It is:

I Give

You Decide

You give; another decides. The power to give is within our control. What another does with the gift is outside our control. Our gift may be accepted, or rejected. We give what we are able and willing. Others accept what is pleasing to them. Simple as that.

In keeping with the proverb, “The greatest love is that which is given,” there is a secret in the Karma of “what goes around comes around.” There is a power freely flowing from the Universal Principle involved. We give; we receive. The more we give; the more we receive.

It Is What It Is

Comments from Wikipedia:

Ninetendo’s spelling of “Wii” with two lower-case “i” characters is meant to resemble two people standing side by side, representing players gathering together.

The company has given many reasons for this choice of name since the announcement; however, the best known is: Wii sounds like ‘we’, which emphasizes that the console is for everyone. Wii can easily be remembered by people around the world, no matter what language they speak. No confusion. No need to abbreviate. Just Wii.

Just we. E-We.

Think of that first E as representing the word “Empower”.

Then, when tempted to judge another, remember:

Good, better, best.

Never let it rest.

‘Til our good is better,

And, our better is best!

It Is What It Is
