“You may think I stress acceptance too much. You may be skeptical about the simplicity of this approach or may have hoped for a more impressive treatment, especially one that does not leave so much for you to do.

I stress acceptance because I have seen it cure when all else failed. I have seen it cure people after more than forty years of trying one different method after another. Indeed I have not seen it fail. Of course, acceptance is made easier by understanding, and this I am trying to give you.

Consider how acceptance works. It brings a less tense approach; emotions have a chance to calm a little, and there is release from asking the everlasting WHY? WHY? WHY? So mental fatigue gradually lifts.”

It means continued illness.”
