Acceptance


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

I'm sure you might have heard a lot of people saying that, "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 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 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 to go through the change, we have to face multiple changes in 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? Its firmly grounded and closely clings to the other mountains around, 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. Now 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 bright sunny morning, and the sunrays shine through the snow caped peaks 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 same spirit. When the season is favorable like summer, and clean beautiful streams flow enlivening the whole atmosphere , you welcome with with warm open arms. When the weather is very unfavorable like the winters and you are frozen completely, and the blizzard blows hard against you, you face it with the same strength and also support the deeply rooted trees no matter how harsh the storm is. 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 shake 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 image this towering top mountain in your heart which is self-possessed and filled with sense of acceptance towards the change! Remember;

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