“If I could define enlightenment briefly, I would say it is the quiet acceptance of what is.”
(Dr. Wayne Dyer)
It’s Tuesday morning (after we in the US had Monday off). This could be a disappointing reality for you, or a fantastic reality for others. Either way, it is what it is. Let’s just quietly accept it.
The school year is coming to an end, and summer approaches. This could be a scary reality for you, with kids home all summer, or an exciting reality for others, getting a much needed season off. Either way, it is what it is. Let’s just quietly accept it.
Your boss is who she is, and she’s not going to change for your benefit. It is what it is. Just quietly accept it.
Your significant other is a separate person from you, who will never think exactly like you. It is what it is. Just quietly accept it.
This quiet acceptance of reality is not the end. It is not a passive resignation from trying to make any changes. It is just recognizing that we cannot change our reality in the future without first accepting how it is right now.
Peace begins with pause,
