Acceptance

Acceptance Quotes

"Everything in life that we really accept undergoes a change.."
Katherine Mansfield, British author (1888-1923)

"Accepting does not necessarily mean 'liking,' 'enjoying,' or 'condoning.' I can accept what is-and be determined to evolve from there. It is not acceptance but denial that leaves me stuck."
Nathaniel Branden, American psychologist

"It is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring."
Carl Sagan, American astronomer (1934-1996)

"To succeed, it is necessary to accept the world as it is - and rise above it."
Michael Korda, American author (1933- )

"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."
Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher (1788-1860)

Acceptance: A Novel (The Southern Reach Trilogy)
by Jeff VanderMeerSearch for Jeff VanderMeer
$15.00
$5.62 new/used

It is winter in Area X, the mysterious wilderness that has defied explanation for thirty years, rebuffing expedition after expedition, refusing to reveal its secrets. As Area X expands, the agency tasked with investigating and overseeing it--the Southern Reach--has collapsed on itself in confusion. Now one last, desperate team crosses the border, determined to reach a remote island that may hold the answers they've been seeking. If they fail, the outer world is in peril.

Meanwhile, Acceptance tunnels ever deeper into the circumstances surrounding the creation of Area X--what initiated this unnatural upheaval? Among the many who have tried, who has gotten close to understanding Area X--and who may have been corrupted by it?

In this last installment of Jeff VanderMeer's Southern Reach trilogy, the mysteries of Area X may be solved, but their consequences and implications are no less profound--or terrifying.

Radical Acceptance: Embracing Your Life With the Heart of a Buddha
by Tara BrachSearch for Tara Brach
$16.00
$4.36 new/used

For many of us, feelings of deficiency are right around the corner. It doesn?t take much--just hearing of someone else?s accomplishments, being criticized, getting into an argument, making a mistake at work--to make us feel that we are not okay. Beginning to understand how our lives have become ensnared in this trance of unworthiness is our first step toward reconnecting with who we really are and what it means to live fully.
--from Radical Acceptance

Radical Acceptance

?Believing that something is wrong with us is a deep and tenacious suffering,? says Tara Brach at the start of this illuminating book. This suffering emerges in crippling self-judgments and conflicts in our relationships, in addictions and perfectionism, in loneliness and overwork--all the forces that keep our lives constricted and unfulfilled. Radical Acceptance offers a path to freedom, including the day-to-day practical guidance developed over Dr. Brach?s twenty years of work with therapy clients and Buddhist students.

Writing with great warmth and clarity, Tara Brach brings her teachings alive through personal stories and case histories, fresh interpretations of Buddhist tales, and guided meditations. Step by step, she leads us to trust our innate goodness, showing how we can develop the balance of clear-sightedness and compassion that is the essence of Radical Acceptance. Radical Acceptance does not mean self-indulgence or passivity. Instead it empowers genuine change: healing fear and shame and helping to build loving, authentic relationships. When we stop being at war with ourselves, we are free to live fully every precious moment of our lives.
