I would say that acceptance is about knowing the way things appear. It’s kind of like awareness; you need acceptance to see what is really going on. But you don’t stay there. You say, 'Okay, that’s what is going on. But what are the limits? What are the possibilities? What do I need to accept because there is not much I can do about it? And what is it I can transform? Acceptance is just the beginning. In meditation, we are not trying to stare at reality. We are developing our creative awareness so we can bring a creative response - Martine Batchelor
