Well, I'd rather let them explain it, if they can/will, but I'll fill you in on my perspective of it.
Acceptance, though necessary, means the end of beliefs as absolutes
, but, yet, although we may accept What Is as already perfect, we may still be able to apply beliefs, per se
, to our daily lives (inri calls these 'preferences,' I think). An example, as Angela and I were discussing earlier, is the belief that "everyone is doing the best they can with the resources available to them." This is not an absolute belief, but can still suffice as an operative belief, (these are my
terms, btw) yet still within the bounds of having accepted What Is.
Otherwise, I'm still trying to understand this, and may start a new thread on it.
