Are You Resisting Your Life?
No matter where we go, our pain can follow if we let it. We can resist all the situations and people in our lives that aren’t the way we want them to be, but fighting against what’s appearing in the present moment only creates more of a focus on the negative.
When we connect to Universal Love and view these people and experiences from a higher perspective, we see how the resistance to all of this doesn’t help. We can hurl anger and judgment at people who hurt us, but it’s not going to improve their behavior toward us. In fact, it will probably make things worse, or bring an end to the relationship.
When we constantly focus on situations that we’re unhappy about, believing we can’t be happy as long as this is happening, we won’t be. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. We can take steps to change things, but resistance to what isn’t changeable only creates more stress and pain.
There’s always something in our lives that isn’t perfect. That’s the nature of our experience on earth. We’re here to live and learn, and one of the hardest things to master is giving up our resistance and attachments.
As humans, we so easily let the pain of resistance take us over, and it’s okay to be in that space. We’ve all been there. But we don’t have to be stuck there. We can bring Universal Love into our hearts, to heal the pain and help us to know that no matter what happens or what others do or think, we are worthy and we are loved. We are beautiful, one-of-a-kind creations, and we are all connected to the same source of love. All of this earthly business we’re so concerned about today will eventually pass away, but love is eternal and it connects us all. In any moment, we can always choose love and peace instead of resistance.
Here are affirmations that may be helpful reminders:
I bring Universal Love into my heart and know I’m okay right where I am.
I take action to change what I can and let go of any stress or resistance to what is.
I bring peace and acceptance into this moment. I am loving and kind to myself and those around me.
