Releasing Control and Accepting Results


This is lesson 26 in the series "Conquering Codependency - Loving Without Leaning" looking at aspects of codependency from a spiritual point of view.

Acceptance is being gracious and relaxed with the outcome of a situation, even if it turns out differently than anticipated.

Each of us is but one part of the whole scene. To retain our personal peace of mind, we must accept that we need only play our part the best we can.

Meditation for Reflection

Sit in a quiet place, hands folded in your lap or face up or face down on your thighs. Close your eyes and begin even, regular breathing such as 2 counts to breathe in and 2 counts to breathe out. After a minute let go the counting, but continue the rhythmic pattern and reflect on these thoughts -

We are not here to control the actions of independent adults. We must accept that each of us has the right to determine our own actions.

When results are not what we had anticipated, we can look to see why. Then we will see more of the variables that brought about a different outcome from what we wanted or expected to happen.

This observation aids us in understanding that each of us has, indeed, our own path leading to a desired result.

When we think and act as if our way is the only way, we limit our knowledge of options that we may find useful in similar situations in the future.

Acceptance Prayer

“May I align and
Act for the common good
To preserve my peace of mind.
May I also remember that
Allowing others the freedom to make
And act on their own choices
Free of my control
Preserves my peace of mind.”

Finish your meditation and prayer with a deep breath in and out and write any new insights in your journal for later review.
