Quotes by D. Hawkins
- At this level a major transformation takes place, with the understanding that one is oneself the source and creator of the experience of one’s life. All people below LoC 200 tend to be powerless and see themselves as victims, at the mercy of life. This stems from a belief that the source of one’s happiness or the cause of one’s problems is "out there". At the Acceptance stage, nothing "out there" has the capacity to make one happy, and love isn’t something that's given or taken away by another, but is created from within. Acceptance allows engagement in life on life’s own terms, without trying to make it conform to an agenda. The individual at this level isn’t interested in determining right or wrong, but instead is dedicated to resolving issues and finding
out what to do about problems. Long-term goals take precedence over short-term ones; self discipline and mastery

- Acceptance has to do essentially with balance, proportion and appropiateness [...] The individual at the level of Acceptance isn't interested in determining right or wrong but instead is dedicated to resolving issues and finding
out what to do about problems.
At this more evolved stage [of acceptance] nothing "out there" has the capacity to make one happy and love isn't something that's given or taken away by another, but is created from within. [...] Acceptance allows engagement in
life on life's own terms. Power vs. Force. The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior, S. 87, Hay House, February 2002
- Acceptance is the great healer of strife, conflict, and upset. It also corrects major imbalances of perception and pre-
cludes the dominance of negative feelings. Everything serves a purpose. Humility means that we will not understand
all events or occurrences. Acceptance is not passivity [LoC 145] but non-positionality. The development of a spiritual ego can be avoided by the realization that spiritual progress is the result of God's grace and not the result
of one's personal endeavors. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 145, Veritas Publishing, revised edition 2002
- We can accept that the ego is, "of course," desirous of gain, advantage, greed, etc. By simply expecting it to be as it is, its nature can be accepted and then transcended. The ego just does what it has been trained to do over the millennia, and it still thinks that its survival depends on adherence to and the practice of its programs that, because of evolution, have now become the antithesis of the intentions of the ethical person of today or of the serious spiritual seeker.
How to stop a momentum that has been moving over the millenia toward a goal that no longer serves? For me, it is
by the constant parenting with statements like: 'I know we used to do things that way, but let's just try this way.' Gent-
ly, ever so gently do I greet the tenacity of that momentum and hold it lovingly in my arms as a newborn who needs
as much love as it can get to grow and learn to 'be' the infinite Presence of Love that it is.

- The individual at the level of Acceptance is less interested in judgmentalism and instead is dedicated to resolving issues and finding out what to do about problems. Tough jobs do not cause discomfort or dismay. Long-term goals take precedent over short-term ones; self-dicipline and mastery are prominent. [....] Acceptance includes rather than rejects. Transcending Levels of Consciousness. The Stairway to Enlightenment, S. 214, 2006
- Karmically, people are where they are right now. Acceptance is saying "Okay. That's what they are right now." Chimpanses are chimpanses cause that's where they are in evolution. I don't have to call them bad.

- Question: How does one find acceptance of self and others?
Answer: Realize the difference between perception and essence.
Let go of criticalness […] how you perceive something and how you contextualize things […] self-criticalness.
You have to be willing to be a good neighbor to yourself. Be cordial and polite to yourself!
Be considerate and decent.
Take the list of values and apply them to yourself.
Just be a decent person with yourself. Be good-natured with yourself. Benevolent.
Out of respect [LoC 300] for the gift of life, which is the gift of Divinity, out of respect you now have the responsibility
to treat it as a great gift. Think about stewardship [Loc 415].
What is your responsibility for the gift of life? Be respectful to yourself.
Stop blaming yourself for making errors.
It is impossible to avoid errors. The only people who don’t make errors are people who don’t do anything!
