Living without resistance is a state of knowing that everything in the universe is in perfect working order. It’s a recognition that the Infinite Power that runs the universe is intelligent and trustworthy. It’s a deep acknowledgement that our Soul’s journey is unfolding with all that’s necessary for It to evolve.
Getting to the state of living without resistance is a process. It’s about cultivating our Oneness with Life itself. Not just the idea of Oneness, but the acceptance of Oneness as our only true reality. When we align our thoughts, beliefs, and feeling nature with the natural flow of Oneness, we come to understand that everything and everyone in our experience is an aspect of self. Everything! Everyone!
That’s easy to live with when your sitting in a beautiful backyard canopied with old growth trees on a mild spring afternoon, smelling freshly cut grass, feeling a light breeze caress your face while listening to chimes signing in the wind and drinking a glass of cold, clean water. But what about when someone cuts you off in traffic? What about the one more job possibility that didn’t manifest? What about when the one you love walks out on you leaving a string of character assassinating words in his wake. What then?
How does one live without resistance under those circumstances? How does One meet Life’s difficulties with acceptance, love, and trust?
As I continue to contemplate Oneness, I’ve come to deepen my understanding of It. The mirror exercise is an incredible way to make sense out of the trials of Life, especially when the heart is involved. It’s not, however, for the faint of heart. When life “seems” to break my heart, I know its important for me to look at how “I” break my heart. When someone cuts me off in traffic, it’s an opportunity to explore where “I” cut me off in Life. When the one more job doesn’t come through, it’s imperative to let it go as it has let me go in order to open to something greater, specifically, God as Source. When someone is mean or abusive toward me, it’s an invitation to look at where I’ve bean mean or abusive toward me.
By seeing Life as a mirror and really owning Oneness as more than just a theory, we deepen our trust in Source to align our thoughts and experiences with Spiritual Values that open us to the best Life ever, regardless of present appearances.
I encourage you to practice the mirror technique the next time someone hurts or betrays you. You’ll likely get in touch with a shadow side of yourself that’s longing to be loved into the light. By doing so, you’ll fill with compassion and gratitude not only for yourself, but for the One who played the role of other in order to bring you back home to Self. It’s a beautiful gift to give yourself. If you’d like support in deepening this process or cultivating the depths of self-knowledge, self-love, and self-respect, call me. Let’s journey there together.
