Accept With Ease And Remain Free From Expectations
The art of acceptance gives us the ability to remain calm and flow with life. It helps us to live light and travel our journey remaining light as it frees us from a baggage of expectations, anxieties and anticipations. We learn to accommodate people and situations rather than resisting them or judge them as right or wrong. We also do not hold them responsible for our emotions. Acceptance also carries shades of appreciation, motivation, love and respect. As we experience and practice acceptance, we experience greater acceptance from others. Also, we accept and then act. Whatever the present moment contains, it teaches us to accept it as if we had chosen it.
Acceptance does not mean everything is perfect, it means our state of mind is perfect. Acceptance does not mean to let things be the way they are, it means keeping our mind stable and working on the situation. Acceptance of what has happened is the first step to start working towards the solution. We need to accept our own self along with our mistakes or difficult sanskars first, and only then focus on corrections. Else we go into guilt and regret which deplete soul power. Acceptance moves us towards transformation. It allows us to be free from the shackles of denial and move forward creating a new path. Accepting other people means we accept that they are different from us. It does not necessarily mean that we agree with them. It also does not mean we accept people’s negative sanskars and let them be their way. It only means our mind does not get disturbed, it remains detached from their sanskar. Art of accepting situations means we understand this is it, rather than question what is this and get into why, where, when, how. When we accept the situation, our mind is silent and stable. Our efficiency and decision making power increases. Our focus shifts from the problem towards the solution.
