Letting Go. For Now.
Oliver: Acceptance? Ya right.
Work is a mess, my family is stressing me out, relationship drama …pandemic …the government …injustice …climate change (insert head exploding emoji)
So what? I’m supposed to just close my eyes, put on a smile and say “It’s fine. I accept everything. Ohmmmm”? Is that what meditation is about? Screw that. If we accept everything, why would we ever want to change anything, right?
We know this “acceptance” thing is good for our mental and emotional well-being, and we also know it’s important to sometimes stand up and say “No. Change needs to happen”.
So please accept (ha ha) my invitation to come together on the 21st, sit, discuss and share about how we reconcile these seemingly contradictory ideas.
