Accept - then act. Whatever this present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it. Make it your friend and ally, not your enemy. This will miraculously transform your whole life.
The power for creating a better future is contained in the present moment: You create a good future by creating a good present.
If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally. If you want to take responsibility for your life, you must choose one of those three options, and you must choose now. Then accept the consequences. No excuses. No negativity. No psychic pollution. Keep your inner space clear.
Are you resisting your here and now? Some people would always rather be somewhere else. Their here is never good enough.
