"Acceptance" is a theme or concept that you hear a lot about in Eastern philosophies, and it's frequently a very hard pill to swallow to us Westerners! Here in the States, the land of making-things-happen and "Don't step on me!", we are raised to respond strongly, maybe even aggressively, to problems and roadblocks. We're told to take charge and make our goals happen. Yet when we become burned out and stressed out from all of this achieving, the ancients tell us in their writings to accept our circumstances in order to experience peace of mind and to move ahead. What is this acceptance business all about? Are we supposed to be shrinking violets, patsies or doormats for the world at large? The good news is that is NOT what acceptance is asking of you.
