Accept What Is

In Harmony Photo 98

It’s impossible to harmonize with someone–or something–while we deny or resist their reality. It doesn’t make sense to rage against the weather, the seasons of our lives, the unkind behavior of another, the loss of a relationship, or an illness. Nor does it make any better sense to rail against politicians, history, economic conditions, social problems, or environmental crises.

Right now especially, with our entire world is transforming before our eyes, resistance will only make our responses and adjustment to change and stressful events more difficult.

Resistence will delay our recognition of a problem’s existence, keep us from taking necessary actions, and make it much harder for others to offer help and support. Accept what is–no matter what that is–and then move forward in a positive way.
