Acceptance and Letting Go

I’ve come to realize that the spiritual life is characterized by the paradoxical pairing of two radical practices: acceptance and letting go. In acceptance, we must remember not to grasp. In letting go, we must be careful not to push away. For me, the play between these two practices is the heart of the spiritual life. It is from this delicate balance that our every day lives become fully embodied expressions of that which is sacred.
