Accept the Present Moment

rainy dayWhatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Accept – and then act. Always work with it, not against it. Make the present your ally, not your opponent. This will miraculously transform your whole life.

– Eckhart Tolle

We toss around ideas, like “acceptance,” but what do we really mean? Tolle’s perspective on the “how” of acceptance gives us something to shoot for. From his point of view, acceptance isn’t passively sitting by and waiting for things (whatever they are) to get better. Instead he suggests we take our circumstances and look at how we can use our situation to our advantage.

Whatever you feel frustration about (resistance), how can you use it to grow in terms of relationship skills, character building, career advancement or self-discovery? Whenever we have an opportunity to actually embrace and work with any experience, we start to build creative energy for change. When we work with what we have, we stay moving with the flow of life and from there we will always be taken to a new place.
