The challenge when it comes to learning the true meaning of Acceptance is we all know the vague meaning of Acceptance.
We have our own self-proclaimed way of answers which are true to a certain extent. But the real essence is missing in those answers.
Even the dictionary lacks for that matter. See below.
1. The action of consenting to receive or undertake something offered.
“charges involving the acceptance of bribes”
2. The process or fact of being received as adequate, valid, or suitable.
“you must wait for acceptance into the village”
Let us ask, why is the essence missing?
Because majority around us have the same understanding, which made us believe that this is the true meaning of Acceptance.
Similarly, it has been like this since ages, that we believe truth based on what our surroundings believe, which may subside with the real truth in some or many cases.
Likewise, for the fact, that people believed earth to be flat and this was believed to be the truth for ages, till someone came and proved it to be wrong.
Meanwhile, the funny part is even the concept of earth being round was not accepted in the beginning. That is how mind is.
‘Mind rejects the things going beyond its logic.’
Therefore, for this matter, we need to first question the information fed in our own mind.
What is the true meaning of Acceptance?
In real sense, Acceptance is just a state of mind which we hold on to, to save the true happiness(The Ultimate Happiness) from disappearing.
In addition, Acceptance is also accepting the fact of what we do not accept.
Like for instance, if there is a situation that has led to our happiness being disappeared, we can Eliminate the reasons associated with it.
And accept the situation as it is by asking oneself, Can I accept this?
Moreover, when we ask this, there can be two situations. Either we will accept or we will not accept.
If we accept, then good to go.
And, if still we are unable to accept a certain situation, then we can ask the second question, Can I accept the fact that I cannot accept this situation?
Again, there can be two scenarios.
Either we accept or we do not accept.
Like before, if we accept then good to go. And, if we are unable to accept, then we continue with the process by asking the same question again.
As a result, by this way, slowly you will feel light and the true acceptance will occur.
In other words, the point here is to stop the resistance feeling which is called non-acceptance.
Resistance is what stops the natural flow of energy and blocks you from all the good things in Life.
Lastly, keep practicing this art till it becomes a habit. Once acceptance becomes your habit, your true power will unleash.
