Cultivating an attitude of yes-“Yes, now what?”


Cultivating an attitude of yes-“Yes, now what?” It is not resigning ourselves but reconciling ourselves to reality, that is, aligning ourselves to it. Such freedom from illusion and wishful thinking is a form of enlightenment. We do all we can to change things that can be changed and then we accept what cannot be changed. … As we practice the unconditional yes we notice that we no longer ask: “Why?” or “Why me?” Now we simply say: “Yes, now what?” Then the things that happen to us reveal themselves to be the necessary ingredients of our personal evolution, the factors that make us people of depth, character, and compassion.
