Dr. of Metaphysics Course Final Essay

Dr. of Metaphysics Course Final Essay
From Lesson 15 Acceptance
I AM Acceptance
Shelly Seligman

I totally agree with this lesson that the key to inner peace is a quiet acceptance without judgment, anger or bitterness, and that God's
Divine Intention for us is to live in a state of quiet acceptance in order to achieve the Power of our Presence. Once we accept that God is all there is, everything is God, Spirit, and Oneness, we can maintain our self-control over outer circumstances.

In order to heal our inner conflict we must accept this quiet calm and stillness that is our God Presence. Once we accept and acknowledge the Divine Presence within, this is the key to the peace that passes understanding. When we accept and acknowledge our God Presence within we begin to access the Power of Divine Forgiveness naturally for ourselves and others, it becomes easy and effortless.

All seeming discord dissolves in the face of Divine Forgiveness.

When Divine Forgiveness starts to flow we are lifted above the negative discordant actions of the ego into a higher perspective and from this elevated position, we can begin to experience miracles. Divine Acceptance is the beginning of Oneness. We then view life with a Spirit of Understanding and Gratitude for all Life. We accept ourselves as Divine and others as well. We release the need to battle every situation and we choose to go within to that still place where all the answers to our questions lie instead of seeking outside in the appearance world. Life begins to flow creatively from this place and everything comes together harmoniously in perfect Divine Order.  We start to receive the Gifts of Life, because Life is created to give freely, and it is up to us to open our arms and willingly accept what Life is giving us through a quiet detachment, overjoyed enthusiasm and gratitude!

Sometimes we don't always see the gift inside the lesson and we overlook it. Occasionally we are looking through the eyes of the human experience. We often times forget that we are Spiritual Beings having a human experience. We mistakenly allow ego to lead us and get off track.

All we are required to do in this situation is stop, become very still, and go within to our still place within our Hearts. Connect deeply with our Divine Presence, accept that the Presence of God is the one and only Presence acting within and around us, and everything magically falls into perfect alignment.

When we accept that we are God in action in every situation, we learn to appreciate every moment in Life and we create a vibration of Love and Harmony, Life becomes Sacred, and this energy pulses forward into the atmosphere drawing every good vibration to us and ever expanding the Light wherever we are.

Letting go, allowing and appreciating is the key to acceptance. We look on the bright side of Life and we become the beacons of Light that moves mountains.

When we accept ourselves and our Divinity we are empowered to move through this earth plane totally supported, fearless, in control and powerfully protected. We are then able to empower others and see them as God in action for us, not against us. We become one with All Life.

Within the Sacred Presence of God we are living in the present at all times where all miracles occur. We are no longer fighting because we are totally free, everything is as it should be and all is well in the Universe. We feel safe, because we know that we are co-creating with God every step of the way we accept that it's All Good because it's All God ;)

I AM Sacred Divine Acceptance
And so it is….
