“Accepting life as it unfolds does not imply that we relinquish our desires for things to be different. We would not do or accomplish anything if we relinquished our needs, goals, and intentions. Spirituality does not imply inaction. Spiritually oriented people are very action oriented. Think of Buddha, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., or Mother Teresa. Established in their deep connection to the sacred, they worked relentlessly to improve the world.
Acceptance means focusing on the present while assessing the choices available to you in this moment. If there are many possibilities, make the choice that is likely to bring the most evolutionary results. If there is only one choice, take it. If there are no obvious choices, relax and accept the fact that for now, you cannot do anything.”
David Simon, in “The Ten Commitments”
