Goal of Acceptance

edited June 2013 in Goals
Does “Acceptance” mean that a person accepts everything around him, or does he work to get others to accept him?

ACCEPTANCE AS A GOAL CAUSES THE SOUL INVOLVED TO GO THROUGH VARIOUS MACHINATIONS IN ORDER TO FIND THEIR SPECIAL NICHE IN LIFE. THIS ALSO IN TURN CAUSES THEM TO EXCUSE THE FAULTS OF OTHERS, SINCE THEY THEMSELVES RECOGNIZE THEIR OWN IMPERFECTIONS. THIS IS THE PROVERBIAL “NICE GUY”.

THE GOAL OF ACCEPTANCE IS IN ITSELF A POWERFUL EXALTED GOAL FROM WHICH SPIRITUAL ENLIGHTENMENT CAN SPRING. WITH THIS THERE IS NO NEED FOR A SWITCH IN OVERLEAVES — MERELY EXTINGUISHMENT OF THE NEGATIVE POLE, WHICH IN THIS CASE IS THE DESPERATE NEED TO BE ACCEPTED UNIVERSALLY BY OTHERS. IN EXCHANGE FOR THIS YOU COME INTO THE POSITIVE POLE, WHICH IS OF COURSE, THE UNQUALIFIED ACCEPTANCE OF OTHERS, JUST AS THE NEGATIVE POLE OF THE GROWTH GOAL INVOLVES TREMENDOUS SCATTERING OF ENERGIES AS THE SOUL RUSHES FROM SCHOOL TO SCHOOL SEARCHING FEVERISHLY FOR THAT ILLUSIVE “WAY”.
