Freedom in Acceptance

I read this quote the other day that spoke about acceptance as being a new type of freedom.

Although immediately realizing its depth, the quote however, sat with me for a couple of days.  I began to think about how that practice could potentially change the world. Again, like in most cases, it brought me back to the self, self-acceptance, and if you cannot accept yourself then how are your truly excepting anyone else without expectations, without restrictions,.

Imagine a world of accepting one another, all starting with the self.  I think that just may be the ultimate freedom and the root to all other freedoms branching off from there.

Perhaps our definition of freedom needs to be evaluated in this new day and age. Somewhere, somehow it seems to have lost its meaning. 

"Freedom in Acceptance", I will be earnestly putting this to practice. -tM
