Principle 5 Acceptance 3rd Week

Principle 5, third week

Each month we have been considering one of the 12 Principles of Valid Action, as they appear in Chapter 13 of the book, The Inner Look. This month we are considering principle  #5 called The Principle of Acceptance ” it says: “If day and night summer and winter are well with you, you have surpassed the contradiction”

This week our considerations of this principle are focused on the present i.e on: how I might be able to apply this principle.
Of course, as always we are trying to see how the Principles might be woven into a discipline that I can practice at every moment of my life; a kind of dynamic meditation.

Here’s some personal reflections on this principle and especially on unity and contradiction. I offer them in the spirit of dialogue and exchange, and look forward to hearing your thoughts about, and experiences with, this principle.
