This is my new Zen Mantra. Eso si qui es. It IS what it is. “Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it.” ~Eckhart Tolle. I have found that by following this mantra life is sooooooOOOOOOOO much easier!!! ;D Rather than reacting to an event or judging it as either "good" or "Bad" if you can just accept that it IS then you are open to whatever the situation may bring. It is especially helpful if you have a little boy who can be quite difficult at times!! Rather than judging his behaviour as either good or bad and instead just accepting his behaviour as IS then I can relax and find better ways to understand him.
