Accepting What Is...

The cause for suffering is from not accepting WHAT IS... When we accept things the way they are, in this present moment, we can take action to change what we can, and if we can't change it, then we can surrender to what is (change our reaction). It's a farce to think that by fighting What Is we can change it. We can't change what is by being angry at reality. Reality wins every battle. In fact, since we are co-creators of this life we live, our attention to what we're not wanting causes it to grow bigger. The key is SURRENDER. There is such peace in surrender. Every religion teaches this. FORGIVENESS. Surrendering to what is, acceptance of what is, GRATITUDE, appreciating what is, right now is the only path to the happiness and joy you're fighting to obtain. Just let go and let it be... take the action you can, but take it merrily, with a grateful heart... then what can be can come to you. Fighting what you don't want pushes what you do want away. Embracing What Is positions you to receive what you're wanting.

Jenna Ryan This became clearer to me tonight in Yoga Practice. I've been studying acceptance of What Is, but it didn't make much sense. Then Maryline Gengoux said, "Surrender to the pose," and it clicked. Then I actually surrendered a couple of times during some hard moments and it felt like I was walking on air. Some harder poses became a lot less difficult when I quit fighting it. Thanks!
