Allow and accept

Allow the beauty and allow the challenge. Allow the frustration and allow the joy.

Allow the time and people and places and events to come into your life. And allow them to go peacefully on their way.

Allow the ideas, the actions, the creative thoughts and even the disconcerting ones. Accept what happens, and accept that there’s a positive way forward no matter what.

Accept the praise and the criticism of others, allowing yourself to grow stronger and more compassionate as a result. Allow yourself to be inspired and energized by life as it is, however it may be.

Allow the certainty, the confusion, the harmony and the dissonance. Allow what you love and what you do not yet love.

Allow yourself to be, in this unique and magnificent moment. Feel the full power of existence, feel the goodness that is possible, and allow it to come to life.

— Ralph Marston
