Re: Go, Said the Bird...
Hi Ross. I agree Carina has added a valid point.
The point you make about acceptance and the possibility of fatalism so to speak I look at it this way: For fatalism to disappear you have to be able to fully accept it.
In other words when I am sure I am fully accepting something and yet not feeling good etc. then I have to acknowledge I have more to accept and a new lesson to learn for that truth tells me 'I may think I'm fully accepting but in truth I am not.
Thus on a nice walk when you are fully accepting the beautiful scenery you are happy and contented and centred.
A subtle change in perspective on the truth and power of true acceptance.
