Accepting it, desires disappear, tensions disappear, discontent disappears; one starts feeling very joyful–and for no reason at all. ~Osho Life could be limitless joy, if we would only take it for what it is, in the way it is given to us. ~Leo Tolstoy To say Yes to life is at one at the same time to say Yes to oneself. ~Dag Hammarskjold As I say yes to life, life says yes to me! ~Louise Hay Always say “yes” to the present moment. ~Eckhart Tolle Accept–then act.

It is only when the mind refuses to flow with life, and gets stuck at the banks, that it becomes a problem. By flowing with life I mean acceptance–letting come what comes, and go what goes. ~Nisargadatta Maharaj When we can accept all of life’s contradictions, when we can comfortably flow between the banks of pleasure and pain, experiencing them both while getting stuck in neither, then we are free. ~Deepak Chopra When we let go of wanting something else to happen in this moment, we are taking a profound step toward being able to encounter what is here now. ~Jon Kabat-Zinn If we are always demanding something out of life, then we will never be content.

Love is possible only when there is a deep acceptance of oneself, the other, the world. Acceptance creates the milieu in which love grows, the soil in which love blooms. ~Osho It can be difficult to accept others and to accept ourselves. “I should be better. I should be something different. I should have more.” All of this is conception; it’s all mental fabrication. It’s just the mind churning up “shoulds,” “ought tos,” and “supposed tos.” Part of the solution is to recognize that these thoughts are conceptual rubbish and not reality; this gives us the mental space not to believe them. When we stop believing them, it becomes much easier to accept what we are at any given moment, knowing we will change in the next moment. We’ll be able to accept what others are in one moment, knowing that they will be different in the next moment. ~Thubten Chodron Fatalism is acceptance of destiny And to accept destiny is to face life with open eyes Whereas not to accept destiny is to face death blindfolded. ~Lao Tzu The clouds above us come together and disperse; The breeze in the courtyard departs and returns. Life is like that, so why not relax? Who can keep us from celebrating? ~Lu-Yu
