I liked how Adyashanti used the word consent to participate in the present moment experience. This offers a different spin on the “standard surrender process” most speak about when we discuss facing adversity.
When we don’t consent, and we’re forced into something, we are victimized by the circumstances and experience, we have no control or composure what so ever. By consenting, it is a step to take ownership of the moment, you may not know what is going to happen but you trust the universe and you trust your ability in being both open to the experience and in being able to learn from and eventually persevere.
Present moment living is really complex to fully understand and embrace. But, in a simple view, it really does start with just being okay being.
What are your thoughts?
