AcceptThenAct

Powerful words from Mr. Tolle in The Power of Now.

For those in difficult situations, acceptance might be hard to swallow. However, we can’t fight against reality, it must be accepted in order to then be changed and improved.

We can choose to see the “winds” of adversity propelling us forward in our lives, rather than pushing against us.

    what a fantastic nugget of encouragement.

  • Agreed!

  • EmSewCrazy

    I agree acceptance is the way to move forward. It doesn’t mean you have to like it but you do have to accept that it’s your reality for only then can you come up with a way to move forward.
    I love it when I read something I’ve thought about in my own life. Makes me think maybe I’m not so crazy after all! 🙂

  • Exactly!! Well put. : )

  • Kimberly Anne

    Just the message I needed today. 🙂

  • That’s great to hear!

  • Caitlin Dreger

    This is such a powerful message for me right now. Thank you.

  • You are most welcome!

  • So simple yet so powerful! It really all comes down to how we choose to act in the present moment – the choice is always ours, especially in the face of adversity where we can choose to see it as an opportunity to grow and lean xx

  • Well said, Rachel!
