Deep acceptance of this moment is not equal to passivity or world-denial. It is at the source of all creative, intelligent and compassionate action. It is a fearless engagement with life, a YES to the joy and the pain.
Grounded in a deep embrace of whatever arises, no longer at war with ourselves, no longer split, we move as life itself, spontaneous, flowing, free, whole, and radical change happens as if by itself. Deep acceptance of things as they are, and radical change, are not-two, however paradoxical that sounds to the rational mind.
The absolute sings the song of the relative, and they were never divided in the first place.
