ACCEPTANCE IS A PRACTICE

When acceptance is allowed
To fall deeper and deeper
From the mental realm
Into the emotional realm
And even into the physical realm

It starts to become an embodied experience
That shows up in all relationships

You only find out what it really means
In the act of doing it

As a theory it is useless
As a lived practice it is profound
It changes you and your world

But embracing acceptance is tough
We are conditioned into non acceptance
To resist life and fight with it
To over power it as though life were an enemy
That must be defeated

To fall into a deeper acceptance
All that conditioning must come undone
And that unravelling forces us to come
Face to face with ourselves
In increasingly intimate ways

We may not like what we find
But there is the practice right there
In accepting what we don’t like
In ourselves and in the world

Acceptance is an ongoing unfoldment
An invitation to go deeper and deeper
An exploration of who we are
Beyond and behind the mask.

One thought on “ACCEPTANCE IS A PRACTICE

  1. Acceptance is indeed a practice my friend that yields wonderful wellness benefits. I’ve been hard at work with this topic for 11 years and I can tell you it’s made a huge difference. Whenever I get stuck or feel resistance, I know it’s a signal there’s something I need to surrender and accept. Outstanding expression 😊
