“Acceptance looks like a passive state, but in reality it brings something entirely new into this world. That peace, a subtle energy vibration, is consciousness.” -Eckhart Tolle
Acceptance does not mean we give up or quit. Acceptance means that we have learned to surrender to “What Is.” Too often we spend energy trying to control things which are beyond our control. We struggle and create conflict within ourselves and with others. If we expend all our energy attempting to fix things to be as we think they should be, we miss out on the peace and contentment of accepting how things actually are.
Learning to be in a state of acceptance isn’t something we can figure out just once. It’s a daily practice. Each day we must make a conscious decision to accept What Is and find peace in the present moment.
