“Acceptance takes you out of that pattern of pain and resistance. It is not giving in. It is not giving up. Acceptance is not resignation. “It’s getting clear about what the reality is, to allow the moment to be without any resistance whatsoever,” says Martha Beck. She describes it as, “saying yes to the mess.”
Accepting the situation does not mean you need to put up with bad behavior or dangerous conditions. It means only that you see the situation for what it is. When you do this you get out from under the disappointment of missed expectations and new possibilities become visible. Sometimes, it’s the difference between an authentic life and one leashed by delusion.”
Polly Campbell, in “Imperfect Spirituality”
