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.
