Battles Decided in the Mind

"The profoundest truth of war is that the issue of battles is usually decided in the minds of the opposing commanders, not in the bodies of their men. The best history would be register of their thoughts and emotions, with a background of events to throw them into relief."

-- B.H. Liddel Hart, quoted in the introduction to Sherman: Soldier, Realist, American

Can you accept whatever happens to you?

On The Art of Sanity

What if you decided you were going to accept whatever happened to you ?

What if you accepted every moment just as it is? How would your life be different?

Does that sound scary, or foolish?

What does acceptance mean? Most people think that it means giving in, or giving up. Resignation to a horrible fate. You may wonder “How can I accept the horrible things that are happening to me?" and "If I accept them, doesn't that mean I'm hopeless and not trying to make it better?"

No. that’s not what acceptance means. Accepting does not mean giving up.
