acceptance

A Quote by Rebecca Leech-Black on inspiration, positive thinking, acceptance, world, truth, understanding, wellness, wealth, heart, love, friendship, and cooperation

There is no limitation whatsoever, except those who mentally put themselves in a cage.  To realize that you are not confined is to understand who you really are, because there is plenty you can do and be.

A Quote by Marsha Sinetar on acceptance, patience, vocation, career, and inner-man

Self-acceptance does not come about in practice overnight. Neither does learning how to be patient with ourselves. But if we have any hope of finding a dream vocation or career, we must be on good terms with our hearts, so that we can discover what it is that our inner-man of the heart (to use St. Peter's term) wants to do. For this, patience and self-acceptance are required.

A Quote by Vidyadhara Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche on now, meditation, and acceptance

The principle of nowness is very important to any effort to establish an 
enlightened society. You may wonder what the best approach is to helping
society and how you can know that what you are doing is authentic and good.
The only answer is nowness. The way to relax, or rest the mind in nowness,
is through the practice of meditation. In meditation you take an unbiased
approach. You let things be as they are, without judgment, and in that way
you yourself learn to be.

A Quote by Julia Cameron on love, acceptance, relationships, love relationships, life, and freedom

The face of love is variable. I am able to love without demanding that my relationships assume the structures and forms I might choose for them. My love is fluid, flexible, committed, creative. My love allows people and events to unfold as they need. My love is not controlling. It does not dictate or demand. My love allows those I love the freedom to assume the forms most true to them. I release all those I love from my preconceptions of their path. I allow them the dignity of self-definition while I offer them a constant love that is every variable in shape.

and warmth,
then I must also accept
