Acceptance does not necessarily mean acquiescence. Acceptance is a conscious act, yet beneath it may lie the certainty that with time things will change, the certainty that all things evolve and right themselves according to nature. Acquiescence is a process of letting go to the inevitable, knowing that the inevitable is indeed inevitable. In both cases, consciousness brings in contact with energy beyond the decision to accept or acquiesce. It offers hope. Hope is energy of the future, and hope is good!
