Workshop “How to cultivate Acceptance in difficult times”
Accepting that something is the way it is and not the way we want it to be is the first step to move forward, to open up to new possibilities and, above all, to appreciate the beauty that resided in the reality that was not accepted. It is not always easy to find the difference between giving up and accepting, between resignation and acceptance. Even many people find it easier to accept resignation than acceptance itself. Without acceptance there is no freedom, although our mind shows us, over and over again, that to accept is to surrender, resign ourselves and, on some occasions, even end up humiliated.
Some things are under our control and some are not, even though we may have some influence over them. Except in situations of mental illness, all of our decisions are under our control, while everything else in the world is not. Therefore, we should only worry about what is under our control and treat all the rest with equanimity, as a state that allows us to maintain a balanced and constant attitude beyond the events that life presents us, which will make our mind be in calm down and, thus, be attentive to the present moment.
