When you love what is and what is happening in your life, there is no more suffering.

Byron Katie

I listened to an audio book “A Thousand Names for Joy” by Byron Katie, and once again heard the above phrase. I had heard it many times before, from different sources, and even practiced it for many years, but the greatness of wisdom is such that we can always see a new dimension in wise words.

Some thoughts on the matter:

— Internal acceptance precedes Love.

— Divine Love, Unconditional Love, Loving God means that we are totally, internally accepting this world, everyone and everything in it.

— To love, means to internally accept any external circumstances.

— To love a person, means to fully accept him or her internally.

— Psychology of Ayurveda: «Suffering and pain is non-acceptance of something»

I looked at my own life and noticed that I suffer when I see the suffering of others through degradation and corruption of children. Though outwardly I work to stop the degradation, internally I have not always fully accepted it.

On the physical level, I had severe pain in my shoulder, which increased after visiting a therapist, I could hardly move my hand. I began to view the situation with humour and fully, internally accepted this situation. Externally, I hoped I would get a chance to see a doctor for a full scan. After accepting the situation, I noticed that the following two days were very harmonious. I even set my personal best on my bicycle and, another day, hiked a long distance with ease in the national park.


When I wanted to share the above quote, I accidentally overheard another one. They have something in common:

When it comes to emotions, even the great ones become fools.
