Acceptance

I have a simple question! Have you ever looked at the mountain-like calmness deep down in your heart? Yes, you read it right, in your heart. Okay, let's talk about it in another way.

I'm sure you might have heard a lot of people saying, "change is the only constant!" Life is a journey which unfolds itself through changes, transitions, and discoveries which shift our perspectives, evolve our conscience and help us connect the dots to see the bigger picture. However, no matter how much one says, change is never easy! When things, people or events in life change abruptly, they leave us disoriented, disillusioned, and create lots of discomfort. When we find ourselves in a transitional phase in life, we develop a resistance to change, and lose a sense of control over our lives. Ironically, no matter how hard it's to go through change, we have to face multiple changes in our life which we often have no control over. So instead of fretting about the change in life, it is worthwhile to adopt an attitude that helps you face the inevitable changes in your life rather calmly.

So let me bring you back to the mountain I was talking about. Have you ever closely admired a towering high mountain, covered with thick, crisp-white and fluffy snow, stretching straight to the clouds? It's firmly grounded and closely clings to other mountains around it, but with full independence, and its slope beneath is covered with dense forest. It supports the trees firmly and coexists with them. It's been standing there for thousands of years, witnessing endless changes with the same sense of acceptance. I would like you to imagine yourself as this mountain, who accepts all the changes in life with a peaceful mind. Feeling yourself as this peaceful mountain sitting through time unaffected by any external changes. It remains as it is no matter the seasons. Whether it's a bright sunny morning, where the sun rays shine through your snow-capped peak and the woods beneath; or a chilling-cold winter evening with trees rustling in the freezing breeze, you stay unaffected. You know you've been sitting there for ages experiencing various seasons and changes with full acceptance. You have faced both good and bad times with the same spirit. When the season is favorable like summer, and clean beautiful streams flow, enlivening the whole atmosphere , you welcome it with warm and open arms. When the weather is very unfavorable like the winters, you are frozen completely, and the blizzard blows hard against you, you still face it with the same strength, and also provide support to the deeply rooted trees on your slope, no matter how harsh the storm gets. No matter how much the season progresses, changes happen, you're still there, sitting steadily, facing everything, and calmly going through all the expected and unexpected events, allowing yourself to gradually accept those changes.

Having a mountain-like calmness and a sense of firmness will never let your foundations shaken in testing times. We have no control over the external changes, they have been happening since always, they are happening constantly as you read this, and they will happen eternally. What you have to learn is to get at ease with them! Allow yourself to easily absorb the changes. A numerous times it will happen that people around you will have different perceptions about you, they see you with different views, make contrasting comments about you, but you are still here, sitting with full acceptance. You allow them to have their own judgements but don't get overwhelmed with them or their opinions. You build your charisma such that you're not bothered by people's interpretations about you rather you are at peace with them. So from now, every time when you are in a transitional phase in life, just imagine this towering top mountain in your heart which is self-possessed and filled with a sense of acceptance towards the change! Remember;

"No matter what, you are still here, firmed, unshaken, unstirred!"
