Acceptance is not a judgment or sentencing. In acceptance, we recognize and accept the larger scope of life. This means to simply be with how it feels in this moment. Set aside the mind stories, judgments, criticisms and everything else. Simply feel. And accept.
Acceptance brings a spaciousness that alleviates tension. And thus, a sense of humor and self-humility goes even further.
Acceptance doesn’t wait for the right circumstance in the future, nor does it belabor past events and traumas.
Acceptance is not self-denigrating. It is simply a quiet balance of observation and awareness, though the tasks and challenges of life still need tending to, the burden is set aside for this moment.
