"We cannot change anything until we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses." Carl Jung What do you think ?

After some thought, I think there is a serious point here. Condemnation does not lead to solutions. Condemnation simply puts the event in the pale of the "off limits". Change has to do with understanding a situation. True understanding can only start after we accept a situation. We are not accepting the situation's limits or consequences. We are accepting the reality and starting from there.

Interesting. It seems to suggest that those who will make a profound change in the world will be filled with accepting, not resisting and will be filled with understanding not indifference to others or to certain situations ... What do you think?

We are definitely not starting with indifference. We do accept the REALITY of a situation. We are not accepting the situation as good. Understanding as in knowing why someone probably acted as sh/e did, definitely. Understanding as in saying that every behavior is OK, no.

I totally agree. You'll only end up suffering on your own if you don't. Besides, if you don't accept the changes, you're going to e left behind by people around you who goes along with flow of changes.
