Acceptance is such an important commodity; some have called it "the first law of personal growth." ~ Peter McWilliams
Living apart and at peace with
myself, I came to realize more vividly the meaning of the doctrine of
acceptance. To refrain from giving advice, to refrain from meddling in
the affairs of others, to refrain, even though the motives be the
highest, from tampering with another's way of life - so simple, yet so
difficult for an active spirit. Hands off! ~ Henry Miller
Of course there is no formula for
success except perhaps an unconditional acceptance of life and what it
brings. ~ Arthur Rubinstein
- How hard is it for you not to give advice, not to judge, not to tamper?
- To what extent have you embraced the formula for life of unconditional acceptance?
- What are some benefits of accepting the conditions and events of life with which you are confronted?
