“In the meditation practice we cultivate acceptance by taking each moment as it comes and being fully, as it is. We try not to impose our ideas about what we “should be feeling of thinking or seeing in our experience. Instead we remind ourselves to be receptive and open to whatever we are feeling, thinking, or seeing, and to accept it because it is here right now. If we keep our attention focused on the present, we can be sure of one thing, namely, that whatever we are attending to in this moment will change, giving us the opportunity to practice accepting whatever it is that will emerge in the next moment. Clearly there is wisdom in cultivating acceptance.
