Whatever you resist you become. If you resist anger, you are always angry. If you resist sadness, you are always sad. If you resist suffering, you are always suffering. If you resist confusion, you are always confused.
We think that we resist certain states because they are there, but actually they are there because we resist them.
I heard the other day, someone saying “I am vehemently against people who hold strong beliefs”. This seems to be a good example of what Adyashanti is saying.
The question that also comes to my mind is, “If I am resisting DJT right now… does this mean I will become more like him?”
Take a moment to think about it. Perhaps you notice how your ego mind wants to dismiss this immediately. Or vehemently defends the idea of resisting. Fascinating!
What are you resisting and how is this showing up?
May we continue to move forward with an open heart, fierce kindness and a readiness for action.
A battle of egos will never bring peace.
