Discipline #1 A.C.C.E.P.T.A.N.C.E

A Cool Collected Eased Perspective Towards Any New Challenging Encounter

~ The quickest way to change your attitude toward pain is to accept the fact that everything that happens to us has been designed for our spiritual growth. ~

—M. Scott Peck

Something divine occurs the moment we realize that life is unfolding in the exact way that it should even if we can’t see the wisdom in its unfoldment. Back of every situation is a unique plan carrying out itself to perfection. And while it’s often difficult to see what this plan actually is, this doesn’t negate the fact that everything, absolutely everything, happens according to certain laws and principles. We call them, spiritual principles or universal laws and everything is governed in one way or the other by these laws and rules. Mohandas Ghandi said; “There is an orderliness in the Universe, there is an unalterable law governing everything and every being that exists or lives. It is no blind law; for no blind law can govern the conduct of living beings.” The difficulty of living as human beings is that we have become so unaware of these laws and therefore fail to make the association whenever something occurs in our lives that we are displeased with. Through what I like to call “cognitive disassociation,” which is merely another way of saying amnesia, we have forgotten how everything is related in one way or another by the intricate tapestry of cause and effect. This means that for every action there is an equal reaction and with each and every act we commit, we can most assuredly expect a complimentary result. But, unless we are able to trace all of our actions back to the moment of inception, it becomes virtually impossible for us to connect the dots and see the correlation of events in our lives today. Be that as it may, the fact remains, how everything we’ve ever done up to this point in our lives carries with it a residual energy. This means that nothing goes unaddressed and every occurrence has to be met with an outcome. There is no such thing as an unwarranted act or a senseless act because everything contains within it a justification on some level. However, in most cases the reasoning eludes us and we fail to see the logic behind many of life's most important lessons…
