No Hope, No Fear: On Radical Acceptance

Fear occurs when I fixate on a future of bad outcomes.
Hope occurs when I fixate on a future of good outcomes.
Both fixations indicate I cannot accept the present moment.
In hope or fear, I do not dwell in my breath, in this present moment.

Without fear and without hope, I can achieve clarity.
Without fear and without hope, I can find compassion.
Without fear and without hope, I can find complete acceptance of that which is.

What does it feel like to accept a present without hope and without fear?
