This blog is not going to be different than what you’re used to getting from me. I’m going to explain an interesting thing about the typical mind over the next five blogs. With each blog, I will help you to understand what you have to put up with, when you live with the typical mind, until you clean it up.
Day Three of Five: Craving for Acceptance
The typical mind, after being exposed to 60,000 NO’s between age two and six, is craving for acceptance for the next 90 years. Craving for acceptance is the consequence of misunderstanding. The NO’s are meant to help you grow, but often are spoken with such harshness that they cause you to shrink and feel left out.
When the mind craves acceptance, it believes that you have thousands of problems, and there’s nothing it can really do for you. This mind will tell you, “If I could help you, it would take a thousand years … and the best you’ve got is ninety years to go.”
When you respond to life out of this craving mind, you waste precious time trying to accomplish the impossible. You are, right now, and you have always been part of all of it. You are accepted, totally. Otherwise you’d not be here. You are part of the unity of this incredibly harmonious universe. There’s nothing to accomplish. T’is already done.
When you ask, “How can I be accepted?” you are telling yourself a lie – that you are separate. The very asking gives validity to the false feeling of apartness. Soon it becomes a frantic question.
Awareness of this bad mental habit gives you power to break it.
