acceptance

A Quote by Alice Malsenior Walker on perfection and acceptance

Everything is already perfect. And if you can accept that everything is already perfect, the imperfection is a part of the perfection. What's to worry about? [Laughs]

A Quote by Saba Sophiya Hasan on liberty, self-discovery, self-knowledge, humility, self-respect, success, and acceptance

Let the river flow and you will be liberated. Let yourself go with current and you will find yourself. Let the wind so blow and you will be able to break yourself free very much like a ripened fruit of self-respect that sheds itself away from the tree of dependence. Let yourself be blown away humbling as a fallen petal and you will find yourself above the lowly dust of ground, to finally discover the truth of your existence for yourself.

A Quote by Alfred Emanuel Sørensen on self, non-dualism, simplicity, and acceptance

In this life play I have not been in quest of Guru,
God, Truth, Grace, Salvation, nirvana, or power lust.
 
I had no ambition to be different from what I am.
 
Blessedly, I had escaped headucation, and was
free of any imposed knowledge. I had no property.

I did not marry. I did not belong to any cliques
or creed. I was not attracted to their magnetism.

I felt all is within our Self.

I had nothing to assert or resent.
Nor had I anything to boast about or regret.

I was fully contented.
I had joy in that which is.

A Quote by Dr. Deepak Chopra on moment, reality, unvierse, and acceptance

When you struggle against this moment, you're actually struggling against the entire universe. Instead, you can make the decision that today you will not struggle against the whole universe by struggling against this moment. This means that your acceptance of this moment is total and complete. You accept things as they are, not as you wish they were in this moment. This is important to understand. You can wish for things in the future to be different, but in this moment you have to accept things as they are.

A Quote by Nagarjuna on desire, attachment, buddhism, and acceptance

There is pleasure when a sore is scratched,
But to be without sores is more pleasurable still.
Just so, there are pleasures in worldly desires,
But to be without desires is more pleasurable still.

Nagarjuna (c.100 - 200 AD)

A Quote by Lao Tzu on tao, mastery, governing, and acceptance

Whoever relies on the Tao in governing men
doesn't try to force issues
or defeat enemies by force of arms.
For every force there is a counterforce.
Violence, even well intentioned,
always rebounds upon oneself.

The Master does his job
and then stops.
He understands that the universe
is forever out of control,
and that trying to dominate events
goes against the current of the Tao.
Because he believes in himself,
he doesn't try to convince others.
Because he is content with himself,
he doesn't need others' approval.
Because he accepts himself,
the whole world accepts him.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on tao, natural, and acceptance

Express yourself completely,
then keep quiet.
Be like the forces of nature:
when it blows, there is only wind;
when it rains, there is only rain;
when the clouds pass, the sun shines through.

If you open yourself to the Tao,
you are at one with the Tao
and you can embody it completely.
If you open yourself to insight,
you are at one with insight
and you can use it completely.
If you open yourself to loss,
you are at one with loss
and you can accept it completely.

Open yourself to the Tao,
then trust your natural responses;
and everything will fall into place.

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on mother earth, gratitude, and acceptance

Before the final curtain goes down
On my life,
I shall say to my Mother-Earth,
"My gratitude-heart is all for you,
All for you."
