“Acceptance is the joyful result of your awareness that God is in all things. I came to this awareness through many experiences; and in these moments, I knew that the world was wholly divine and in perfect order. Think about it: if there is nothing outside of God, including yourself, then there is nothing for you to improve. You can allow everything to be as it is. As soon as you give up your throne, you can participate in the infinite joy, love, and perfection that exist in the world. Is there something more perfect or sacred than life itself? Is there something more beautiful than the trees or the sky or you? How easily we forget the sheer magnitude of life. How it is for us to see the good when we focus so intently on the bad. Life is grand, and it is ours to enjoy. So, acceptance of life isn’t a task or a sacrifice. It is a gift.
Consider what would happen if you acknowledged that something more intelligent than you created this world: you would begin to interact with it in a very different way. How your perspective would change if you knew that the people in in your life and everything that is happening to you, everything that you observe around you, is a manifestation of the divine order of this universe. Wouldn’t the quality of your interactions change drastically? The world looks a lot different to someone who is humble and loving than it does to someone who feels disempowered and angry.”
