In Buddhist teachings there is a practice of ‘simply’ saying ‘yes’ to whatever arises in our experience. It is a practice of being with things as they are. In accepting,(meaning seeing things as they are) without judgment, without resistance, we become calmer, clearer and more able to respond to our situation with genuine kindness and creativity. I may feel angry or think the world is a mess or feel useless or sad…it’s just what is happening, what is true.
Am I willing to feel my life as it is?
