Re: Spiritual Principles Applied

I agree with that Acceptance isn't agreement it is the way to spiritual stability and center. and also what Mathew said one has to accept one's faults, it does not mean either agreement nor that one gives in to their faults.
I must accept my faults to reflect about them and if necessary correct them to be a better person. When I went to yoga there was a meditation about to accept everything as it comes, the heat in the sommer, the rain, the wind, the coldness in the winter, enjoy good things... and bad or negative things must also be accepted,perhaps we can change them or just find the positive side.
One must confront sad, bad and negatives things to grow up and to get mature.
Hi again Carina. May I validate what you are saying by adding this:
When it comes to true spiritual principles you find that they enhance the good and render the negative powerless. Thus when you truly accept something negative it's power dissipates and the same with a problem. This gives you space and time to comfortably 'see through it' to a better solution.

Cheers. G.
