The Language for Identifying/Naming the Qualities of Acceptance from the "Self- Awakened Child" series by Jonathan Wolff:
- When I feel peaceful about things I cannot change and I try to live happily with them, I am acting with Acceptance.
- When I feel peaceful about people I cannot change and I try to live happily with them, I am acting with Acceptance.
