In Acceptance, there are many perspectives in the understanding. Acceptance as I see it, is not giving up or being in the same place. To me a practice of self acceptance is an ability to respect the now and in turn acknowledge the transient nature of everything. To accept then is to be able to have a feel or a vision of the situation as it is experienced in the now. Acceptance is often seen as being defenseless.
Yet to envision that acceptance comes from a place of strength, is to be able to understand that we are not one entity but made of many parts that matter to the whole. So the stance of acceptance is about flow & movements in the stillness, in hope to evolve in time along with the changes.
While working with teams in collaboration Our assumptions and notions often lead us.
Our expressions are guarded and stunted in Our doubts kicks in a resistance to be free.
The attitudes that we carry around ideas Often block us from generating fresh ideas We believe our idea must be the best idea. We believe we cannot say what we think. We fear the criticism of what we openly say We hold back thinking sharing is not wise. Or that someone will steal our ideas. Or that we will not get credit for it. Or perhaps the need for perfection kicks in
All are the real blocks in creative ideations Without faith and confidence in ourselves We cannot express & ideate in groups Yet nothing is achieved in silos Growth is a consequence of the sharing.
Creative possibilities are enhanced In a more exploratory space of learning Adopting a more collaborative approach. As we begin to share, we learn some more.
Great ideas are born from creative collaboration.

The discussion became heated, and the two decided to submit the issue to arbitration, and to do so they approached the lion.
Before reaching the clearing in the forest where the lion was sitting on his throne, the donkey started screaming: ′′Your Highness, isn’t it true that the grass is blue?”
The lion replied: “True, the grass is blue”.
The donkey rushed forward and continued: ′′The tiger disagrees with me and contradicts me and annoys me. Please punish him”.
The king then declared: ′′The tiger will be punished with 5 years of silence”.
The donkey jumped with joy and went on his way, content and repeating: ′′The grass is blue”..
The tiger accepted his punishment, but he asked the lion: ′′Your Majesty, why have you punished me, after all, the grass is green?”
The lion replied: ′′In fact, the grass is green”.
The tiger asked: ′′So why do you punish me?”
The lion replied:
That has nothing to do with the question of whether the grass is blue or green. The punishment is because it is not possible for a brave, intelligent creature like you to waste time arguing with a donkey, and on top of that to come and bother me with that question.
The worst waste of time is arguing with the fool and fanatic who doesn’t care about truth or reality, but only the victory of his beliefs and illusions. Never waste time on discussions that make no sense…
There are people who for all the evidence presented to them, do not have the ability to understand, and others who are blinded by ego, hatred and resentment, and the only thing that they want is to be right even if they aren’t.
When ignorance screams, intelligence shuts up. Your peace and tranquility are worth more.
We all sail in the same boat of unending hope We all learn of life in the living Sharing experiences along the way. We adjust our sails as we sense the winds of wisdom blow And follow in hope of discovering more in the flow… And in the leading and the following Life goes on… Finding meaning for itself!
Every tree is beautiful No matter where it is But some take your breath away In the sheer grace of abundance Of nature’s manifestation.
Speaking of trees There is tree that comes to mind That I used to always be charmed by In my daily walk while in a distant land It is a beautiful tree in Rennes France A glance would be enough to feel The gratitude welling up in me For the bounties of nature! So grateful!
