When we open our hands, minds, and hearts, moving into the flow of the stream, we either can paddle forward to or float back to the bank of our true identity much more easily. Practicing meditations helps us to recognize our mind patterns and habits, and helps us to see our choices.

I look around me and ask myself; is this my world, Beauty, nature, laughter, love
Accepting ourselves is like placing ourselves and our issues in an open hand, the open hand of acceptance. For example, when we have a disease, we often fight with it and this creates worry, fear, and anger; this kind of fighting is a struggle between us and the disease.
