Welcome!

Acceptance of the Present Moment

Pain is physical; suffering is mental. Beyond the mind there is no suffering. Pain is merely a signal that the body is in danger and requires attention. Similarly, suffering warns us that the structure of the memories and habits which we call the person is threatened by loss or change. Pain is essential for the survival of the body, but none compels to suffer. Suffering is due entirely to clinging or resisting, it is a sign of our unwillingness to move on, to flow with life. The essence of saintliness is total acceptance of the present moment, harmony with things as they happen. A saint does not want things to be different from what they are; he knows that, considering all factors, they are unavoidable. He is friendly with the inevitable and therefore does not suffer. Pain he may know, but it does not shatter him. If he can, he does the needful to restore the lost balance - or he lets things take their course.  Nisargadatta
