Acceptance Is The Greatest Thing Of All

Acceptance Is The Greatest Thing Of All

 

Acceptance is the greatest thing of all because

it means to embrace everything without discernment.

One embraces so that

one may be awakened of that which one has embraced.

Being awakened does not mean

to gain enlightenment by

discerning until one knows for sure

what is and what is not;

rather, it means to gain enlightenment despite such discernment;

it means to discern until one knows it for sure,

yet not be bound to one’s discernment;

it means to discern with the Mind that is absent of self.

Because this Mind embraces the narrow minds of others,

it is the Mind of great mercy and great benevolence;

it is the Mind of true, great heart.

According to Nature’s flow,

acceptance is the wisdom of life,

in which a life that follows this flow is

a life of acceptance.

Acceptance is perfect,

and so it belongs to nothing.

Yet it allows for everything to become one;

it allows us to live seeing things just as they are

so that though one may teach,

one does not belong to the teachings –

one just teaches,

one simply does it –

which is why it is acceptance.
