Acceptology

February 28, 2012

Gerardo Schmedling developed Acceptology, a science that ensures that what you are not capable of accepting is the only cause of your suffering. According to this there are two realities, the external one, which cannot be changed, and the internal one, which is the reading you make of the external one and that you can modify. As you do not know the order of the Universe, you fight against it without being aware of it, and you do this by not accepting the experiences and opportunities for growth that life offers you, since you make a wrong reading of them. Therefore, when you change your inner reality, your outer reality also changes. This does not mean that it is transformed externally, but rather that by accepting a certain reality you have already learned what it came to teach you, so that reality no longer corresponds to you. Then the Universe places you in another situation with different circumstances so that your evolution can continue.

The Pedagogy of the Universe does not need and cannot be modified, therefore, when you do not accept what happens to you and you establish a fight, whether external or internal, you find great blockages that lead to suffering. Acceptology wants you to clearly see the futility of suffering, and to understand that everything that happens to you is designed to teach you something that is part of the beautiful process of evolution that is life. Don't confuse acceptance with resignation. You can only accept what you have understood, and you can only understand what you have experienced. Resignation limits, acceptance liberates. According to Gerardo Schmedling, life has only one purpose: that you learn to be happy for yourself. When you don't accept reality as a perfect order, your ego is most likely fantasizing that there are other people, other circumstances, or other places where you could be happier. But the reality is that there is no external circumstance that can make you happy, as Schmedling himself says: "Peace is achieved only from an acceptance based on a loving understanding of the order of the Universe and the necessary processes". That is the principle of Acceptology.

Tell me… have you ever experienced the liberation that comes from accepting something? Irune.
