How Acceptance Happens

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, welcome back to your Daily Mindfulness. In today's session, we're going to talk about acceptance and why it happens at the interface between awareness and truth. So as you probably already understand by now, acceptance isn't apathy or inaction instead, it's an honest conversation with life. It's an honest conversation with life. And this is why I believe acceptance happens at the interface between awareness and truth.

It's because you're, you're meeting your life, honestly, where it is right, relaxing into it, recognizing this is the truth of what is here. Not pretending it's something different, not trying to sugarcoat it, but just simply meeting it. And that's what awareness does. It's this part of us that just knows what is happening in our life as it's happening. It doesn't try to decorate it.

It just meets it. But through that honesty, the boundaries of our mind, and you can even say our heart, start to expand, to hold what is here. Allowing us to stay present to our new reality without collapsing, even though collapsing may be part of our first honest meeting of the truth. With more internal space and clear seeing, we can stay grounded in ourselves and be more grounded in the world without having to tiptoe around something that we haven't come to terms with yet, or that we're trying to avoid. Acceptance can be very difficult.

It often means facing and meeting and coming to terms with the truth that we don't want to embrace, we don't want to recognize. But once we do, awareness meets it and a reorganization in our system happens to move more fluidly with the current reality. And so even if you did nothing else than just be aware of what's coming up for you right now, the vulnerability of relaxing into that truth, this is where acceptance happens and you can trust that process. Thanks for your practice. And let's settle in for today's meditation.
