Default Acceptance is an essential tool for a peaceful life; however acceptance occurs i

If I keep running headfirst into a brick wall and it always bloodies my head, I can deny that Iím hitting the wall or deny that itís hurting me (denying the FACT of reality); but then, this leads to repeating the same action and suffering the same result. If I want to quit hurting, I face three levels of acceptance:

1) Resistive acceptance: I understand that the reality does exist (I accept the FACT of realityóit is what is); I bear up resignedly and believe that itís wrong or unfair. (I donít want that wall to be here; itís not fair or right but if I want to stop hurting, Iíd better quit running into it).

2) Neutral acceptance: I am at peace with the facts; I cease struggling; although I still donít like or appreciate what has happened, I calmly accept it and move forward with my life. (I donít agree with this wall being there; I donít like it or understand it, but it must serve some purpose; I cease giving it power to cause me emotional turmoil.)

3) Total acceptance: I enhance my understanding; something makes me see how the reality I face can actually benefit me and I start to appreciate it. (I had the opportunity to view what's on the other side of the wall and itís keeping a pride of lions from attacking me! I would be insane to tear it down. Iím grateful for that wall)

Prayer: God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Take three relaxing breaths; ask your inner spirit to guide your meditation; reflect on the content, pausing for a few minutes in silence
