Acceptance—whether we believe in God or not—allows us to move into the fullness of joy. It allows us to engage with life on its own terms rather than rail against the fact that life is not as we would wish. It allows us not to struggle against the day-to-day current.
In a 12 Step Program in which I fellowship, I learned early on that I could make up a Higher Power of My Own Understanding. So I did. And just as I transition everyday with each and every interaction and experience, so does my Higher Power. You see, with every interaction and experience comes a feeling, which becomes a thought, which becomes you. It is up to you to remove those which don’t serve your highest good.
And with the creation of a Power Greater Than Myself, I learned to surrender and accept myself for the true gift that I am and accept all that was happening in my life. I even became willing to turn my will and my life over to the care of my new Higher Power.
Therefore, no more struggles, just the fullness of joy. Learning to live life on life’s terms, go with the flow, and know, feel, that all is perfect.
