Acceptance Brings Peace

Dearest Readers,

There is a fire warming my legs, a blue sky outside the nearby window, a sparkling lake in the distance and a dis-ease called cancer that is ripping apart the life of my friend Leanne.

The unbearable incongruousness of life! How can we live with it?

Recently I heard someone talking about the frustration we humans feel when we are faced with questions that we cannot answer. In our arrogance and in our fear, we demand the answers. "Why, God? Why?"

So often, here on this earthly plane, we cannot know the answer.

Sometimes all we can do is practice acceptance. It might not satisfy the need to understand but it can bring peace nonetheless. We can practice letting go of the "why" and instead look for the "way".

Inspiring Message of the Day: I will practice letting go of my need to make sense of things that don't make sense. From this, I will trust that peace will come.
