In the state of acceptance, there is the feeling that nothing needs to be changed. This is different from resignation, where there are still residuals of the previous emotion left. There is reluctance and a delaying of the true recognition of the facts. Resignation says, ” I don’t like it, but I have to put up with it.”
With acceptance, resistance to the true nature of the facts has been relinquished; thus, one of the signs of acceptance is serenity. With acceptance, the struggle is over and life begins anew. This consciousness level is one that we all long to achieve, for it enables us to find freedom from most of life’s problems and to experience fulfillment and happiness. Here, the source of love is seen to be within ourselves, emanating from our own nature and reaching out to include others. Our lovingness radiates out naturally from the essence of our being, because many of the blocks to its awareness have been surrendered.
We discover that this lovingness is our nature, and it is what the great teachers mean by our true essence, our true Self. It is the aim of our Self to transcend the ego, that composite of all our negative feelings, programs, and thoughts, so that we are able to experience the inner essential nature.
