  6. How it works: selfishness—self centeredness that we think is the root of our troubles
    Driven by a hundred forms of fear, self delusion, self seeking, snd self pity

    And Acceptance is the answer to all of our problems
    When I am disturbed it is because I find some person place thing or situation some fact of my life unacceptable to me and I can find no serenity until I accept that person place thing or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment. Nothing absolutely nothing happens in God’s world by mistake. Unless I accept I accept life completely on life’s terms I cannot be happy I need to concentrate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world as on what needs to be changed in me and in my attitudes
