I remember, about seven years ago, I was in a cab with an old friend, I was a little distraught because of something that had just been said on the radio. Something horrible had happened.
My friend remained grinning and said dismissively: don’t worry, there is no good or bad.
I stopped to look at her but said nothing.
We took many cab rides together, but only this one stands out in my memories.
I did not agree with her statement then, nor do I now.
Accepting and surrendering to the present moment does NOT mean apathy. Or lack of action when something has to be done.
I can accept the moment I am in, even if it is painful, INWARDLY. This way, when I act outwardly, my action comes from a deep place of surrender. I am one with the moment and can therefore adjust or respond to it as IT or at least without apathy or further violence.
Inner acceptance allows us to respond to painful situations from a place of love, which is the only sane option.
