Are there limits to acceptance?

One of the main ideas put forward by most spirituality teachings is acceptance.

Acceptance that all is well in the universe. Acceptance of what is happening here and now. Around us, within us.

Without a deep, sincere acceptance, there cannot be peace of mind, relaxation from stress, simple joy.

So much is clear and undisputable.

On the other hand, it is equally clear and undisputable that a lot of what is going on our planet these days is profoundly shocking and “unacceptable”.

So how do we deal with that little dichotomy?

Let us first notice that the idea of complete acceptance without any qualification suits those in power. Already in the old days of dominant religion it kept the little people in total subservience.

Nowadays, teachers of personal development who only emphasise positive thinking without ever introducing lucidity about the systemic corruption of society are effectively playing in the hands of the ruling establishment.

Awakened individuals cannot just be content to sit in the lotus position all day while corporate predators, war mongers, banksters, and their pawns in government are getting away with murder.

Some kind of activism is called for.

But not the aggressive revolutionary sort. That route has been tried in the past and it failed. In fact it belongs to the same illusory realm of materialist thinking, ego and fear as the mainstream system itself.

Activism to support the change of paradigm has to be smarter. It needs to be genuine, loving and open, not manipulative, not crudely conflict oriented.

I rather like the “non comply dance” suggested by David Icke (see yesterday’s post). Joyful, cheeky, convivial and resolute.

You and I will have to find our own ways of sending positive vibes to the universe and contributing to the spiritual rise on this planet.

Which brings us back to higher guidance, to the dance with our Invisible Partner.

Fear not, stay calmly alert.

Love,

Leo
