Resistance is Pain
or "just let go, it will be over soon."
The other day I was getting a deep-tissue massage and my therapist was digging in to the muscles and there was pain, lots of it. I know that I must relax and allow the therapist to do their work. Lately I’ve had a lot of deep tissue work and know that once the therapist finds some tension, If I just let go there is hardly any pain and we can advance quickly.
I was doing my best, but he was finding the spots too quickly! He wasn’t really giving me time to relax the muscle fully, so there was some pain. That’s when something told me to go higher level than the muscles, to go tell my mind to yield all resistance.
That was it! When I got to the mindset of yielding to all resistance, the therapist was able to get to all the muscles and there was no pain.
So that got me thinking…what if you gave in to ALL resistance? What if resistance is what brings heartache and suffering in life?
What if you really opened up and let God’s will manifest in your life? I’m not trying to be all religious here-(insert your favorite deity in that place-(the Universe, or the Great Spirit, Buddha, the Great Pumpkin or whatever you else you like.
What if your resistance is prolonging your misery? What if it’s all planned out and your stupid ass is delaying progress?
In my life, the important changes were initially never welcomed. The biggest changes came with some sort of a loss-loss of employment, loss of relationship, or even the loss of a person (like a death)
While I never took some losses well, they have shaped me into who I’ve become. Maybe its my resistance that caused all this collateral damage.
Maybe next time I will bend rather than break.
Live Long and Prosper.
