We are not willing to accept things as they are. We constantly wish that things were different. We wish that we looked different, that we had more money, a prestigious job, more love in our lives, that we had done things differently, and so on. We do not allow things to be as they are.
Allowing things to be as they are does not mean that we have to accept our current situation if it does not suit us. On the contrary. only by accepting reality as it is can we effect real change. By not accepting things as they are, we are living in a fantasy world. Non-acceptance causes stress, frustration and endless, repetitive cycles of thought and behavior.
Let's allow things to be just as they are.
