Lessons Learned from Ratnadevi: A Place of Acceptance

One of the first things that struck me about my discussion with Ratnadevi is how she noted that there were so many different examples of impermanence that we could work with. She knew that her mother was dying. We are wherever we are with the pandemic, our climate is in crisis, and Ukraine is under attack. These are all pretty significant reminders of impermanence.

As Ratnadevi and I pondered the changes we face in our world and in ourselves, we did not let go of hope. In fact, she discussed active hope. Meaning, not just wishing for positive change – but finding the steps that you can take to move forward with that change. And to be able to take those steps, you need to be in a place of acceptance. To recognize the reality of a situation. Once you accept that reality, you are in a better place to find your way of moving forward.
