Acceptance of this moment

Just think, for a moment, about the stress that inevitably arises from the kind of struggle being described here:

When you struggle against this moment, you're actually struggling against the entire universe. Instead, you can make the decision that today you will not struggle against the whole universe by struggling against this moment. This means that your acceptance of this moment is total and complete. You accept things as they are, not as you wish they were in this moment. This is important to understand. You can wish for things in the future to be different, but in this moment you have to accept things as they are.

-- Deepak Chopra

    And for me acceptance of the moment (which does occur at times) often leads to the awareness that the moment is as perfect as it can be. The realization that all is well, and exactly as it was meant to be.
