“What could be more futile, more insane, than to create inner resistance to what already IS?” – Eckhart Tolle
Have you ever noticed how much you’re resisting your current situation?
Start paying attention to your thoughts. How often do you catch yourself complaining about the way things are?
How often do you say:
I wish she would…
Why can’t he just…
It’s so unfair…
By resisting what already IS, you’re making yourself sick.
You’re wasting precious energy.
All for something you can’t change, because it is already happening, or has happened.
I’m in no way saying you should just suck it up and deal. Quite the opposite, actually.
I’m saying if you stop resisting what is happening in the moment, you free yourself from the suffering that usually follows; suffering caused by incessant thoughts of how bad life is or how unfair things are.
How you just wish things could be different.
Without the aftermath of resistance, you’re free.
Free to feel calm. Free to release that moment into the past.
Free to move forward.
Free to think with a clear mind about how you can change what is in your power to change.
