Spiritual acceptance has two meanings. The first is the acceptance of of others as having value and rights, even though they have different views on life. (See also ‘toleration’)

Such acceptance is the ground of all peace.

The second is acceptance of reality, of what is.

Eckhart Tolle defines such acceptance as a “this is it” response to anything occurring in any moment of life. There, strength, peace and serenity are available when one stops struggling to resist, or hang on tightly to what is so in any given moment.
