Accepting What Is

Learning the art of accepting what is one of the hardest aspects of life.  While there is a strong push at the top of the new year to want to forge ahead, the universe will not allow forward moment until we’ve finished the unfinished business.  Wether it’s with people, relationships, soul contracts or other tasks this is a law of the universe that we must obide by.  Sometimes the choice is not ours.  We have to do our own internal work and accept what it is.  Things don’t always go or end according to plan.  However we must reconcile whatever is or was left undone within ourselves.  Holding on to the past is detrimental to our mental and emotional well being.  It also robs us of moving forward in the most empowered way possible for our soul growth and highest good.  Only we can push ourselves ahead.  Life is rough and can kick us around sometimes.  As we continue understanding this truth as an ample part of life we can be more in the acceptance of those things that did not go our way.  The power lies in how we accept what is.  It’s that Buddhist mindset of going with the flow.  It’s the path of least resistance.  Life will go and take you where it will so battling, fighting and resisting is not going to change the ultimate outcome.  Embracing will work much more in our favor in the long run.  Embracing doesn’t mean loving a bad outcome, it merely means being in total acceptance of it.  There are some things in life, especially the big things that we cannot change.  They are exactly as they are supposed to be.  Do I believe there is a deeper karmic lesson in it, especially when it’s painful?  Yes, absolutely.  Can we change the past or what is supposed to be?  No.  I believe some things are destined.  They are meant to be.  I wholeheartedly believe certain events and outcomes are pre-ordained by a much greater force than us.  We must simply be in the acceptance of it.  It’s the only way to be.  And be free.
