What you Resist persists

September 29, 2008

Do you hate the way you look?

Do you despise the idea of having to work eight hours every day while your neighbour has started what you think is a cushy little business?

Do you bemoan the fact that you’re driving a ten-year-old car while your friends drive new cars?

Do you feel you’re unworthy?

Do you feel you’re a failure?

Do you feel you’re incompetent?

All of the above are aspects of resistance. The more you wallow in them, the greater they will become.

The key is to accept who you are. Stop resisting. Replace resisting with acceptance.

You are who you are and that’s perfect.

Do you know how much energy it takes to resist all the things in your life that you consider to be negatives?

Accept who you are and go on from there.

Can’t you feel the peace that comes over you when you suddenly realize there was no need for all this resistance?

Accept and take a giant step toward happiness.

    It’s all in your mind, Misti.
    Look at your inner self.
    I know you’ve got a heart of gold.

    ‘You are who you are and that’s perfect’

    Glad you like it, Annant. πŸ™‚

  5. Be me! πŸ˜€ Hehe… Although the me i know is too variable for most to accept. Hehe… πŸ˜†

    It doesn’t matter if they don’t accept you ‘coz what is of utmost important is how you feel about yourself, Lizzy. πŸ˜‰

    I looked at my inner self and it was all red and squishy with lots of tubes and blood and stuff.

    Of course, being the lazy sort, I smile a lot. Why? Because it takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile. πŸ™‚
    So, even if you feel unhappy, be lazy and put a BIG SMILE on your face. People will wonder what you’ve been up to! πŸ™‚

    I agree, Dabs. Make their minds boggle. πŸ˜›

    We are not perfect beings. But we choose our own pathways in life – to be happy or miserable.


    That’s very true, Kyels. πŸ˜‰
