To Accept What IS

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

To accept what is

Is not to condone.

To accept what is

Doesn’t make it necessarily right.

To accept what is in this moment

Does not mean that it should never change.

To accept what is for what it is

Does not mean I approve.

My acceptance is an act of resignation to the facts of the matter,

A way to deal with a situation that is at once

Wonderful and not.

It is a situation that does not fit

With my current life values.

It is in violation of the 5 Buddhist Precepts,

Out of touch with the 8 fold path,

But it is a situation that if I do not accept it as it is,

It will cease to exist in my world and


That is a consequence I cannot and will not accept.
