There is a lot of confusion when it comes to accepting things as they are. People want to manifest and hear they need to be ok with current situation. They think accepting things as they ware will manifest more of the same.
Accepting things as they are is NOT:
-settling for where you are
-forgetting about what you want
...or anything along those lines.
When you accept as is, you let go of those thoughts that beat you down for being where you are. You let go of that internal struggle that drains your energy. You stop criticizing yourself. You stop giving energy to what you don't want. You are freed from that mental paralysis that keeps many people stuck.
You accept things as they are and suddenly you feel peaceful. You let go.
Once that garbage in your head is gone, it's easy to be positive, hopeful and draw better circumstances.
Let it be easy.
Move as a total being, and accept things. Just for twenty-four hours, try it - total acceptance, whatsoever happens. Someone insults you, accept it; don't react, and see what happens. Suddenly you will feel an energy flowing in you that you have not felt before ~ Rajneesh
Wow, what a perfect advice*****
Only an acceptance of both the flowers and the thorns can bring you peace. Peace, after all, is the fruit of total acceptance ~ Rajneesh
When you rally against what is, you set up resistance to your good because you are paying attention to your current reality. When you make peace with what is, and even appreciate it, you offer up a very different vibration. One in which you aren’t angry with what’s happening, and you’re even feeling good about it. That is very allowing of your good.
The moment that judgement stops through acceptance of what is, you are free of the mind. You have made room for love, for joy, for peace ~ Eckhart Tolle

The mental suffering you create is always some form of non-acceptance, some form of unconcious resistance to what-is. On the level of thought, the resistance is some form of judgement. The intensity of the suffering depends on the degree of resistance to the present moment ~ Eckhart Tolle
