'being resigned' is the definition.

'doing without a mushroom' is the wordplay.
'doing' becomes 'acting' (I am not sure about this - if you are sure you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
'without' indicates putting letters inside ('without' can be similar in meaning to 'outside').

'acting' going around 'cep' is 'ACCEPTING'.

'to' acts as a link.

(Another definition for accepting that I've seen is " Tolerant".)

I've seen this clue in The Independent.
