Those of us “working” on our spiritual growth have a tendency to lean towards change and evolution. Not a bad thing, but there is something very evolving about true and deep acceptance. As Eckhart Tolle tells us the peace that comes from acceptance is the essence of consciousness and brings something entirely new into the world. I’m all for bringing something entirely new into the world and entirely new into my life.

Acceptance is not a passive thing. It is the heart of peace, compassion and kindness.
