Acceptance1

I have accepted man
Because
Man is dreaming.

I have accepted the earth
Because
The earth is transcending.

I have accepted Heaven
Because
Heaven is smiling.

I have accepted the cosmic gods
Because
The cosmic gods are promising.

I have accepted God
Because
God is at once evolving and fulfilling.

I have accepted myself
Because
I am learning the supreme art
of surrendering.
