If acceptance isn’t one hundred percent, hasn’t been scoured of resistance, it’s non-acceptance.
Peace emerges when we do not want things to be different than they are, when we agree with what is.
Peace moves in when self-improvement moves out.

Problems proliferate whenever we hang on to something, when we cling to it.
