Dear friends, Life can be very beautiful and smooth and an enjoyable experience. Two important things required to make life smooth are unconditional love and acceptance. Most of our problems arise because our ego cannot accept people and situations. Ego lays a trap of "what should be" rather than focusing on " what is". Our ego has many likes and dislikes and many preferences and has a tendency to be critical , judgemental and filled with opinions. Just think for a moment , if your mind is so filled with preconditioned notions, then will you be able to remain in present and enjoy every moment? If we accept people and situations, then our life becomes easier. Relationships suffer because of lack of acceptance and tolerance towards each other. Let us increase the magnitude of acceptance within us and see how it changes our life. Ego and acceptance are poles apart and are diametrically opposite to each other. Let us try to move towards the side of acceptance. With acceptance comes the beautiful qualities of patience and surrender and after surrender the ego drops.
