Principle 5 Acceptance 2

Principle 5, second 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.  The principles are not a list of “thou shall” or “thou shall nots” typical of moral or ethical guidelines. We have to keep in mind that the Principles are not meant as isolated bits of wisdom, any more than they’re meant as moral commandments. As it says in the chapter on the principles in The Inner Look:
It is not indifferent what you do with your life. Your life, subject to laws, is open to possibilities among which you can choose… …Thus, what-one-must-do does not depend upon distant, incomprehensible, and conventional morals, but upon laws: laws of life, of light, of evolution. 

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”
