So what you're saying is that I should just accept reality as it is and not argue with it. Is that right?

The Work doesn't say what anyone should or shouldn't do. We simply ask: What is the effect of arguing with reality? How does it feel? This Work explores the cause and effect of attaching to painful thoughts, and in that investigation we find our freedom. To simply say that we shouldn't argue with reality is just to add another story, another spiritual concept. It hasn't ever worked.
