ACCEPTANCE WITHIN

The source of most psychological problems is the lack of self acceptance…many people live their life as their own worst enemy instead as their own best friend.

Self acceptance depends on freedom from judgments and expectations of our rational mind… But the rational mind asserts itself by claiming to know what is “best” for us… And if we don’t meet these demands we are often attacked in painful ways… It is our intuitive mind which offers us the acceptance we need… However the rational mind accuses the intuitive mind of being irrational and foolish… Usually the aggressive rational mind wins the argument and as a result it becomes the dominant perception of who we are… But the intuitive mind is far more intelligent and wiser in ways not recognized by the rational mind.

Change most often occurs when the rational mind fails and been humiliated by its efforts to control our actions… There is a giving up and letting go of the powers of our rational mind… Much to our surprise we are more open to find the intuitive mind as a welcome change… Instead of thoughts of the rational mind our intuitive mind expresses itself through feelings and can act as a compass to guide us in a direction most truly our self… Once we trust our intuitive feelings, they become our dominant orientation and the rational mind plays a secondary role in helping us deal with the practicalities of life.
