Everyday we resolve to fight, be stronger, be patient, be innovative and many such things that are to be driven by us. What we miss in this self-centered thinking is that all this energy is wasted if there is one simple thing lacking – i.e. Acceptance of current situation “as is” as perfect and as it is supposed to be.
Now ones mind would ask “how can something so negative, bad be perfect or supposed to be that way”. Here’s my take on this.
To me it is quite simple (now after a few intense experiences where i lacked Acceptance).
Firstly, the universe is much smarter than you and I are, it knows what will serve us the best in the long run – may be it is just giving us the lesson we need to learn to grow to even greater heights, may be it is making us stronger for more joy and love in our life.
Secondly and more importantly for me, regardless of the universes role in this, Acceptance is the foundation stone for empowering self. A person who does not accept reality graciously and open heartedly is constantly leaking ones own energy and is not empowered to move ahead in life. They may say they are interested in a brighter and happier future but they choose to be stuck in the past by lacking acceptance.
Whatever your reality is today “Totally and completely” Accept it, embrace it and empower yourself to create a better future for yourself and for all those are important to you.
