Acceptance. (Wipikidia) Acceptance in human psychology is a person's assent to the reality of a situation, recognizing a process or condition (often a negative or uncomfortable situation) without attempting to change it, protest.
So how do I interpret the meaning of acceptance? I view it as a philosophy of being open minded to the differences in humans ways of life. I know there are other ways of seeing things and doing things than my own, and I try to let it be. I see a growing intolerance for many lately especially in this state that stem from hate, fear, dislike, ego, superiority complex- and I'm dismayed. In this case, I do not have acceptance of the suppression of others. And religion has been the foremost driving factor and reason used to increase the pressure. I like to think I have an open mind, a tolerance, a love and giving viewpoint for others who's choices or personal make-up and lifestyles that aren't the same as mine. Live and let live. When it comes to horses, you can browbeat them into submission or teach them what you want with guidance, and love. I find their acceptance of me has much more meaning and significance when I treat them as feeling, sensitive, intelligent beings and with respect. I pray for the world to become more accepting of others so there is more positive energy, and love to go around.
