It is a state of being in which one is open to accepting whatever comes their way without trying to control or influence it. This type of awareness allows one to look at their life and experiences objectively and without bias. The aim is to be open to learning from whatever comes without trying to shape it according to one's own preferences or desires. This is a form of mindfulness that can help us to be more present and aware of our lives and the choices we make. ![portrait of rodriguez, painting by paula rego, high detail, high resolution ](https://lexica-serve-encoded-images.sharif.workers.dev/md/0882567f-e322-4b38-bfa1-f02e8ff4f3d6)
