Recently, I added a new aspect to my life, Eckhart Tolle and his uncomplicated approach to life. In the past few weeks, my mind was home to cluttered thoughts and pessimistic emotions. My attempt to change this unproductive state of being, cosmically took me to Eckhart’s website.
He answered a very pertinent question that I had in my mind for a long time now.
Is accepting things as they are equivalent to having a passive approach to life? How can a passive approach to life help me evolve and change things in my life?
I am sharing my understanding of his life lessons with you. Acceptance is the first step toward a rightful action. When we do not accept the problem, we fight it or deny its existence. With time it becomes bigger and bigger in our thoughts. It occupies our mind sub-consciously and disrupts our thinking process, sleep pattern and physically makes us feel weak and tired. We just keep fighting reality and destroying credibility of the present moment. The end result- highly unproductive use of our energies.
When we accept a problem, we no longer waste our energies in fighting or denying it. Passive approach to life, accepting things as they are, gives us boundless energy to work toward a fruitful solution from a very positive and rightful space. By adopting this approach to life, we bury our ego deep down and feel in control of the situation by looking at the problem in an impersonal way. It is the problem that becomes weak and small as we feel spiritually energized to bring magnificent changes to our life.
Isn’t this a very empowering approach to life? What do you think?
