quotes on acceptance

Acceptance is an important ingredient in the recipe of SURRENDER. To ACCEPT what is, what has been, what could be. To accept one’s tears and one’s cross. To accept one’s joys without the guilt of feeling that one does not deserve the treasure she has found.

Much of our suffering comes from non-acceptance. Much of our energy is wasted resisting what already is.

Acceptance however, does not mean accepting evil, of not giving a fight to do what’s right. But it means fighting in another way, a fight that does not focus on resisting evil, but that which focuses on surrendering to attain what is good.

Through acceptance, we defeat our denials. We accept the darkness for what it really is. But we remain unafraid, ,knowing that darkness cannot prevail over the light. When we are of the light, no darkness can defeat us – ever!
