Non-Resistance

Commentary by Peter Shepherd
non-resistance
“What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it.” ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti
If love is the unconditional acceptance of what is, then fear is the non-acceptance of what is, leading to resistance. Acceptance is powered by love; resistance is powered by fear; it is you that empowers them both. Where there is love, oneness naturally exists; where there is fear, understanding and compassion go missing.
“Let us not look back in anger, nor forward in fear, but around in awareness.” ~ James Thurber
Another take on being in the moment, with a quiet mind. Meditation sessions help, but the best meditation is when you practice being mindful as you go about your daily life, with all the buttons that presses. And it's not to suppress the response, it's to simply recognize and accept what actually is, without resistance, and let those fears and resentments just float on down the river of time and out of your life.

“By starving emotions we become humorless, rigid and stereotyped; by repressing them we become literal, reformatory and holier-than-thou; encouraged, they perfume life; discouraged, they poison it.” ~ Joseph Collins
Many of us believe that we need to keep a tight lid on our emotions. We fear that if we ever allow these emotions to be expressed, they will do harm - the painful ones will be overwhelming to experience or lead us to bad behavior; the positive ones won't last and they'll leave us with a loss, another painful emotion. The only thing that keeps painful or unwanted emotions alive within you over long periods (whether conscious or subconscious) is unwillingness to acknowledge them, experience them, accept them and then let them go. Resistance just leads to persistence. Besides, we're missing out: emotions are the life energy of experience, and when we suppress emotions we also make intuitive knowing inaccessible since both pass through the right brain.
“When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live at peace with others.” ~ Peace Pilgrim
I feel this positive approach is empowered by the love that is the nature of our being, and is effective in creating peace and happiness. The alternative - applying resistance, judgment, antagonism and hatred - is to be ruled by fear, which is to deny one's essence, and has the effect of empowering that which one opposes. As Guy Finley says: “Your true nature is fearless because it lives for one reason only: to be the instrument - moment-to-moment - of whatever Love asks it to be.”
“There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.” ~ Denis Waitley
There's no point banging your head against a wall. What you resist persists even more, so if you don't want to suffer, accept what is as it is. Or you have another choice... if you can see a way then take responsibility for making it better, the best you can. That's not complaining about it but doing something constructive. Life gets better this way, and simpler.”

Here’s some further reading on this theme...

The Path of Non-Resistance ~ by Wallace Huey

Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional. We cannot avoid pain in life, it’s a major aspect of being a human on a material planet. However suffering is different. Suffering happens when we seek to avoid what is actual, real and true. Suffering is in the mind. The Path of Non-Resistance is the best way to go and these are the steps to take. Continues...

The Other Side of the Coin ~ by Peter Shepherd

When your belief system, politics and lifestyle are different from others, do you judge them and resist who they are and how they live their lives? That depends on whether your motivation is love based or fear based, and that depends on where your ego is at, right now. We need to train our ego to be aligned with love instead of fear, so that it then becomes a transparent mental interface to the spirit. Continues...
PODCAST by Peter Shepherd ~ Non-Resistance and Acceptance
Non-resistance is not passive or weak if it is powered by acceptance... which doesn't mean you necessarily like or agree with what you see, rather you're facing reality without defenses, with no need for emotional resistance and avoidance of communication.
