Was bedeutet Akzeptanz?

I just made myself a Kakao. Here in the kitchen of the hostel where I'm staying for a few days. My venture was almost thwarted by three intensely sizzling pieces of chicken breast spread over half the cooker. A feeling of repulsion flashed through me. "Are these the vibes you want to surround your holy Kakao with?" my spiritual ego immediately asked me. But before it could sabotage my noble intention to make a Kakao, the cook entered the scene and offered me some of her lunch. Shyly, yet with a touch of pride, she presented the chicken and showed herself ready to do me some good with it too. To nourish me.


A smile spread in my heart, which I turned straight to the outside. "No, graçias" I replied in gratitude before joining the dear middle-aged Colombian cook and we shared the cooker for a few minutes. While there, I silently summed up the case for myself: 1. dead chicken, probably from unecological mass farming with the potential to cause real harm to people through regular and excessive consumption. 2. next to it, the vegan, gluten-free, high vibration, synapse tickling Kakao that so many, myself included, consider sacred and which, through conscious, ritualistic ingestion, has the potential to change people's lives for the better in a lasting way.


"How can this go together?" many a highly sensitive soul might ask.


Shouldn't these two objects push away from each other, like magnets with the same polarity? Or the Kakao start to evaporate to escape these "bad vibes"? No. At least not in my reality. Because what I was just allowed to feel is that two such opposite poles can and want to harmonise. And all it takes, from my point of view, is to put the intention in the foreground and not the thing itself.


The moment I can really recognise the (good) reason why this lady lets her meat sizzle, at the same moment this sizzling loses its, for me, so negatively charged meaning. And what remains is acceptance and thus connection. Connection to a woman who is willing to share what little she has. And on the other side, me, openly perceiving her willingness and receiving it with gratitude, instead of pressing her into one of my concepts and putting a "bad vibes" stamp on her. This moment made my day.


Of course, this doesn't always go smoothly, but when acceptance succeeds, it feels limitless. So my question to you is: When was the last time you showed someone your absolute understanding, despite a fundamentally different opinion? And when was it not possible for you?

Our time with the Arhuacos.

About 5 years ago, during my first stay in Colombia, we hiked through a national park, the Parque Tayrona. It is known for its incredible biodiversity and the natural spectacle that results when wild mountain jungle flows directly into the Caribbean Sea. Even then, on our hike through the national park, we encountered tribal people dressed in white. Sometimes accompanied by a donkey or a mule, mostly with a cheek full of coca. At that time, I felt extremely foreign to this culture, which was so different, and at the same time so fascinated by it.
