  • Be willing to have it so. Acceptance is the first step in overcoming the consequences of misfortune.

  • What is, is simply what is. Allow it and rejoice in it. Deepak Chopra
  • Through allowing, you become what you are; vast, spacious. You become whole. You are not a fragment anymore, which is how the ego perceives itself. Your true nature emerges, which is one with the nature of God. Eckhart Tolle
  • What if the foundation of your life, and not just the foundation of your time spent in meditation, became allowing everything to be as it is? Adyashanti
  • The spacious mind-heart of equanimity leaves room for all the difficulties and attractions of life, for everything wanted and unwanted. Within the warmth of this vast inner space, equanimity permits us to live freely, allowing everything to have its place without having us, without taking us. Joseph Naft
  • Consciousness, or your true nature, is allowing everything to be as it is. Adyashanti
  • Real meditation is spontaneous. It is pure welcoming, because there is no choosing of whatever appears in the field of consciousness. There is no selection. There is only choiceless allowing, be it of external perceptions, feelings, bodily sensations, thoughts, or their absence. Everything is equally allowed to come into existence, not as a practice, but because the mind has understood its own limitations. That is all the truth-seeker needs to do. No further spiritual practice needs to be undertaken. Francis Lucille
  • Acceptance

… especially the present moment

  • Presence is allowing whatever condition arises in this moment to be there. Eckhart Tolle
  • Nonresistance is the key to the greatest power in the universe. Accepting means you allow yourself to feel whatever it is you are feeling at that moment. It is part of the is- ness of the Now. You can’t argue with what is. Well, you can, but if you do, you suffer. Through allowing, you become what you are: vast, spacious. Consciousness (spirit) is freed from its imprisonment in form. Eckhart Tolle
  • Accept this moment as it is

Allow the universe to lead you

  • I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you. Oprah Winfrey
  • Divine order

Allow yourself to be human


Allow yourself to be human

  • When I allow myself to be human and let go of my harsh judgements, I flower and bloom. My eyes are opened to my worth. Talents and gifts I never knew I had, begin to reveal themselves. Every part of me bathes in the warm glow of love and acceptance. Strengths, abilities, weaknesses and inadequacies. All things become new. No regret or shame. A life nourished from within. As the day accepts the sun and the night accepts the moon, so I accept myself. And so, I become complete and whole. John Kehoe
  • Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism…confronting your fears and allowing yourself the right to be human can, paradoxically, make you a far happier and more productive person. David M. Burns

Allow yourself to feel

  • It is a strong and emotionally healthy individual that allows themselves to wholly experience, and express in an appropriate manner, the full range of human emotions. Amanda Harvey
  • But by throwing yourself into these emotions, by allowing yourself to dive in, all the way, over your head even, you experience them fully and completely. You know what pain is. You know what love is. You know what grief is. And only then can you say, ‘All right. I have experienced that emotion. I recognize that emotion. Now I need to detach from that emotion for a moment’.  Mitch Albom
  • In the practice of meditation, we neither encourage emotions nor repress them. By seeing them clearly, by allowing them to be as they are, we no longer permit them to serve as a means of entertaining and distracting us. Chogyam Trungpa
  • Anger very often masks deep fear and insecurity. Accepting these feelings and allowing ourselves to really feel them can bring us to a point of then being able to release them. Amanda Harvey
  • Emotions

Allow yourself to dream

Allow things to come and go


Allow your thoughts to be without getting entangled in them

  • When you are present, you can allow the mind to be as it is without getting entangled in it. The mind in itself is a wonderful tool. Dysfunction sets in when you seek your self in it and mistake it for who you are. Eckhart Tolle
  • Your thoughts are nothing but temporary electrical impulses. If you don’t identify them with self (or your story), they cannot harm you. Eckhart Tolle
  • Thoughts are not the problem… it’s the thing that goes out and grabs them and makes them ‘yours’ that’s the problem. Jac O’keeffe
  • Thoughts are just moving through consciousness. They have no power.  Nothing has reality until you reach it, grab it, and somehow impregnate it with the power of belief.  Adyashanti
  • The mind should be kept independent of any thoughts that arise within it. If the mind depends on anything, it has no sure haven. Buddha
  • Incessant thinkingAwarenessPresence

Allow happiness to come and go

  • The art of living does not consist in preserving and clinging to a particular mode of happiness, but in allowing happiness to change its form without being disappointed by the change; happiness, like a child, must be allowed to grow up. Charles Morgan
  • Happiness is strange; it comes when you are not seeking it. When you are not making an effort to be happy, then unexpectedly, mysteriously, happiness is there, born of purity, of a loveliness of being. Jiddu Krishnamurti
  • Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. Nathanial Hawthorne
  • Happiness

Allow consciousness to arise


Allow abundance to flow


Allow abundance and well-being to flow into your life

  • When your heart is singing, you are allowing Well-being. When you are appreciating, you are allowing Well- being. Abraham-Hicks
  • There is a Life Stream that flows to you, and this is a Stream of clarity, a Stream of wellness, a Stream of abundance – and in any moment, you are allowing it or not. What someone else does with the Stream, or not, does not have anything to do with how much of it will be left for you. Abraham-Hicks
  • The Art of Allowing is deliberately choosing thoughts that cause me to offer a vibration that causes me to allow myself to receive the things that I’ve been asking for. Abraham-Hicks
  • We would like you to release the word “achieve” or “earn” from your vocabulary and from your understanding, altogether, and we would like you to replace those words with the word “allow”. You’re wanting to allow your Well- being, not achieve it. It’s not something that you need to earn. All you have to do is decide what it is you would like to experience, and then allow it in order to achieve it. It isn’t something you have to struggle for or try for. You are all worthy beings. You are deserving of this Well- being. Abraham-Hicks
  • There is a much easier way of going about the Deliberate Creation of your own experience and of fulfilling your intention for this joyous life experience, and that is an understanding and application of the Art of Allowing. It is the conscious, gentle guiding of your thoughts in the general direction of the things that you desire. And as you come to understand this powerful Stream of Life that we are explaining, and as you get a glimpse of the larger picture of who- you-really-are, and, most important, as you become convinced that your true work is to simply realign with who-you- really- are, the Art of Allowing will become second nature to you. Abraham-Hicks
  • It’s not your work to make anything happen. It’s your work to dream it and let it happen. Law of Attraction will make it happen. In your joy, you create something, and then you maintain your vibrational harmony with it, and the Universe must find a way to bring it about. That’s the promise of Law of Attraction. Abraham-Hicks
