I love you for the truth in you. (A Course in Miracles)
Reacting to insanity

Acceptance

"This is the miracle: behind every condition, person, or situation that appears "bad" or "evil" lies concealed a deeper good. That deeper good reveals itself to you —both within and without — through inner acceptance of what is.”

Bringing a “yes” to everything does not mean letting people do whatever they want to do to you. Acceptance also does not mean backing down or bottling-up emotions.

Sometimes the loving response is a “no”. Accept even this. Sometimes an honest, open, even emotional reaction is required. Accept this too. Accept everything that is, even your own reactions and emotions as neither good nor bad, neither right nor wrong.

Acceptance is a knowing that is beyond good or bad and not dependent upon any evaluation or outcome. Through unconditional acceptance, you live from intuition, you react in love, you perceive people and events without judgments, labels, or evaluations. 

There is no power in non-acceptance. Here there is only suffering and conflict. Acceptance takes us beyond the illusions of perception to consciousness—where everything of value originates and knowledge is complete. The power you have to change anything is activated when you bring a “yes” to what is.

We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
