I’ve been thinking a lot lately about resistance. By that, I mean resistant thought I have sometimes experienced, and still do to some degree on some subjects.
Today I was listening to Abraham while running and they said the following (I am paraphrasing):
The reason you are so resistant is because you were taught to take action without inner alignment or satisfaction. You acted against your own impulses. Naturally, at some point you got really tired of doing that, so you rebelled. After all, doing nothing is better than forcing yourself to do something you aren’t lined up with. You should never make yourself do anything you don’t want to do!
I have heard this kind of sentiment many, many times from Abraham, yet today it was especially clear how true this was for me. In fact, my journey of personal happiness might be boiled down to this:
Learning to follow my own guidance and only take action when inspired from it.
Mastering this is an ongoing process. I woke up last night in a state of making myself wrong. It sucked. There I lay, frustrated and awake, instead of content and asleep. Eventually I realized what I was doing to myself. This realization helped me ease up, and eventually I got a good night’s rest.
The biggest breakthrough in my thinking has been in easing up on myself, accepting where I am, and stopping the old habit of self-judgment. Essentially, these days I am learning to make myself right, instead mercilessly doing the opposite.
I much prefer it. More of that, please!
