Acceptance and Surrender!
There are injustices in the world that are absolutely unacceptable, and yet it is necessary to accept and surrender to the feelings and emotions that are evoked by them. Surrendering to "what is" releases suffering that clouds the mind, and is the opening for appropriate and compassionate action. Spiritual sayings such as: "that is just the way it is" or "that is all right, we are all one" are superficial and irresponsible understandings of the relationship between acceptance and surrender!
