in the acceptance of what is


Everything is the way it is.  

There is no way, right now, for things to be other than they are. 

This does not mean we don’t care.

Nor is it a fatalistic excuse to be lazy. 

We care because we are filled with the compassionate, non-judgmental Love of G-d. 

And we work because there is much work to be done and because our inability to finish the work does not mean we are excused from doing our part. 

Yet, we must accept that, in this very moment, things are the way they are. 

For only there, in the acceptance of what is, do we have any chance of finding peace.
