Acceptance Opens the Gateway to Miracles

It’s hard to accept something that doesn’t go according to our plans or something that is unpleasant in our lives. We tend to think that if we accept something, this means that we approve of it. Worse, it means that it will never change.

But acceptance does not mean that you are just a passive doormat to life. It simply means that you accept what has just happened because it has happened—it is reality—then you change what is within your power to change it. It is insanity to fight, deny, and struggle against reality.

I listened to a recent lecture by Eckhart Tolle on acceptance. Tolle says to accept everything that happens to you as if you had chosen it. He said, “First accept. Then change it.”

Bringing Yourself into Alignment with Unpleasant Events

Abraham, the nonphysical entity who speaks through Esther Hicks, says that we must bring ourselves into alignment with seeming misfortunes. Otherwise, we will be out of alignment with life and, by extension, with the object(s) of our desires.

But how do you bring yourself to accept the unacceptable?
One way to do this is to practice non-reaction. Just don’t react to a curve in your plans.

And for God’s sake don’t let your mind start chattering away. If you’re not careful, your mind will take control and really ruin any chance you ever had at serenity (and at manifesting your desires).
So before that happens, acknowledge that this is all part of God’s master plan. Then recite this Bible verse:

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God—Romans 8:28

I believe that this Bible verse is speaking of being in alignment with all events of life. It means that by immediately accepting all that happens to you, everything—even what seems to be horrible incidents—will work out for good.
And what’s the alternative?

The alternative is being out of alignment with life, which will cause all things not to work out very well.  
It’s your choice.
