I wonder just what he means by 'accept'? My immediate reaction was that we have no choice but to accept, but maybe he means something far deeper, far less passive.

If I change the first word to 'embrace' it feels more active, more a decision to go with this and make of it what can be made, whilst acceptance, to me, seems a bit passive and leaves the option of either doing nothing or following a destructive path.

I like it though, and I think he probably means be 'accept' pretty much what I mean by 'embrace'
