Read Write Do, Day 3
Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it. Make it your friend and ally, not your enemy. This will miraculously transform your whole life.
~ Eckhart Tolle
Write About This
What do you think the difference is between simply accepting a difficult situation and accepting a difficult situation “as if you had chosen it?”
If we were able to do the latter more often, what would be the reward?
Take a walk alone and meditate on the phrase “accept it as if you have chosen it.” Think of a specific challenge this sequester is handing you and consider how it might feel different if you had actually chosen it. Consider what it would look like to ”work with it, not against it.”
