Buddha Speaks - Serenity

One of the teachings of Buddha talks about is how to be accepting of life.

Desiring to change is okay, but longing for change actually hinders our growth. An important aspect of developing acceptance is learning to avoid craving. Craving is when we long for something, and unfortunately craving can make us very unhappy. One common form of craving is to crave experiencing something different from our current experience. This longing actually creates an unhealthy form of dissatisfaction with what we’re currently experiencing since the flip-side of craving is aversion. - http://www.wildmind.org/applied/daily-life/tools-for-learning-acceptance

So, we long for change, we work to change, and in doing so, we hinder our ability to change.  What a paradox!

Each day, being grateful for what you have and loving what you have brings acceptance.

Namaste.
