“Radical Acceptance is the willingness to experience ourselves and our lives as it is.”
– Tara Brach

“There is something wonderfully bold and liberating about saying yes to our entire imperfect and messy life.”
– Tara Brach

The practice of surrender was actually done in two, very distinct steps: first, you let go of the personal reactions of like and dislike that form inside your mind and heart; and second, with the resultant sense of clarity, you simply look to see what is being asked of you by the situation unfolding in front of you.
– Michael Singer

“Clearly recognizing what is happening inside us, and regarding what we see with an open, kind and loving heart, is what I call Radical Acceptance. If we are holding back from any part of our experience, if our heart shuts out any part of who we are and what we feel, we are fueling the fears and feelings of separation that sustain the trance of unworthiness. Radical Acceptance directly dismantles the very foundations of this trance.”
– Tara Brach

“When we really allow everything to be as it is, in that inner
atmosphere, in that inner attitude of non-grasping, that’s a very
fertile space – a very potent state of consciousness. In those moments
of surrender, something creative can come to you. That is the space in
which insight arises, in which revelation arises.”
