Accepting the Reality of this, Our “Often Quite Challenging”, Life

“Life is constantly unpredictable, uncontrollable, and often quite challenging.

Edith Eva Eger explained that life in a concentration camp was an endless selection line where one never knew whether one would live or die. The only thing that kept a person alive was acceptance of the reality of one’s existence and the attempt to respond as best one could…

Acceptance was the final pillar of the mind, and it led us to the first pillar of the heart: forgiveness. When we accept the present, we can forgive and release the desire for a different past.”
