    Acceptance....If god, the creative source, creative consciousness or whatever is all accepting why can't we? In actual fact when you think about it there is no reason not to be as the more accepting one is the less conflictive one is, wouldn't peace throughout the world be a nice thing to experience especially when it brings one closer to the creative source?

      Feb 26 2013: What I wonder is, what is the difference between being all-accepting and being a doormat? In other words, if someone punches me in the nose, I shouldn't just accept it, should I?lovegreg

        You don't get it Greg, to be all accepting is to also be accepting in not accepting as well, now that's all accepting!!!!

        Look at it this way Greg, the creative source would have to be all accepting otherwise the source wouldn't accept our non-acceptance thus become judgmental & conflictive like we are which it isn’t or more likely can’t be.
