To all you well-intentioned do-gooders and positive change and difference makers ...

Please. By all means. Do whatever it is you're going to do. What will be will be. Including your efforts to change it. 

But, you might want to consider just who is doing what to whom ... and for whom. 

It seems the God's acceptance is so all encompassing the it includes the limits of acceptance his creatures place upon his creation. Not without consequence though. 

You might want to first dismantle the false structures within yourself out of which you project a world of confusion, fear, hate, and violence. Then you can see things as they are, and, then act with a pure heart. My point is that until you clean the lens of your own perception how will you know that what you are so ardently trying to fix or bring into being is not further mucking things up owing to the unconscious patterns of mind and body which operate under your own awareness. Blind leading the blind, is a good way to put it.

As Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj has so succinctly said concerning being of help: "First get yourself out of need for help. To help others, one must be beyond the need of help. Devotion to your goal makes you live a clean and orderly life, given to search for truth and to helping people, and realization makes noble virtue easy and spontaneous, by removing for good the obstacles in the shape of desires and fears and wrong ideas."

Carl Jung, on the same subject: “A man who is unconscious of himself acts in a blind, instinctive way and is in addition fooled by all the illusions that arise when he sees everything that he is not conscious of in himself coming to meet him from outside as projections upon his neighbour.”
