What occurs in the present moment can’t be changed, but it can be accepted so life is truly lived, and when life is truly lived, it’s because what’s there is accepted and nothing needs to be different.
To truly live life there has to acceptance of what is. What is is what’s happening right now and it’s the only place where life can truly be lived. If one doesn’t accept what’s here right now, life will be made into something difficult. Life can never be anything more than what it is right now, because right now is what’s here. Only the Conditioned Mind makes one think this isn’t so. Life is always what’s here because it’s happening now, you can wish for things to be different, but that’s how life is wished away. Accept what’s happening now, be with what’s in front of you, and truly live.
Our paths are laid before us to do the best we can with the tools we have. There needs to be a anchor so our path is clearly seen. It’s very easy to veer off the path if one isn’t vigilant. There are many diversions that will try to knock you off a path based in what is. It’s like life is an obstacle course and things are in place to divert you from being with what is, from the present, which is the Here and Now. There’s only the present moment and it’s always what’s in front of you. One of the main obstacles used as a diversion is wanting things different, your mind tells you if things were different, life would be better, but this is the great lie; the delusion of the Conditioned Mind.
Things are always the way they are because it’s what’s there, the acceptance of this is what makes you free. You cannot change the way things are right now, so life will only truly be lived when it’s accepted as it is. When what’s in front of you is accepted, there’s no struggle with wanting things different and it’s in this space that life will be truly lived.
