September 29, 2020--The Dance of Acceptance
Acceptance is a life-long dance.
You get better at it the more you do it.
But you never dance perfectly.
Sometimes you get tired and say “I shall dance no more.”
But then, unexpectedly, you fall in love,
or someone makes you a business offer you can’t refuse.
No matter how hard you try, you can’t stop the dance.
Mistakes are part of the dance.
But some people don’t know this.
Their business fails or their partner leaves them
and they blow their brains out.
They play for very high stakes.
Sometimes we take the dance a little too seriously.
We forget that we are here to learn
and take some pleasure in the dance itself.
If we don’t learn to laugh at our mistakes
and imperfections and those of others,
our journey becomes heavy and oppressive.
The more unhappy we are,
the harder the dance becomes,
because we must dance with our unhappiness.
That’s why acceptance is so important.
The more we accept life as it unfolds,
the easier the dance becomes.
