It is said that only when we resist what is happening to us that that causes (or at least amplifies) the suffering.
As you explore further into the body to where you experience that resistance, that always seems to be there, it is like a car driving with the handbreak slightly on. Or fully on, depending on how much resistance you have.
A most obvious example of this is when we are receiving an injection. When we are gripped tight in fear, very tense, it hurts a lot more than if we simply welcome it and allow it.
Resistance to what is signifies a judgment that not all is ok. That you would prefer something to be other than it is. Well the last time I looked it is almost impossible to have everything ‘perfect’ on the outside world, consistently. There is always going to be some degree of ‘off’ which causes the cascade of judgment and resistance. Which lifts you out of your Peace.
So check in with the body now. Is there resistance? Where is it? What is it like?
Now allow the resistance to be there fully, and notice what happens. It starts to soften and release. And what will be revealed is what was always there underneath: the nature of Pure Self, which is perfectly peaceful, pure, non-judgmental and fully Loving and Accepting of whatever is occurring. For whatever is happening cannot pierce or affect the Light that You Are.
Forever are these 2 choices offered to us: resisting what is, or resisting the resistance! And the more we can do the latter, the more our Pure Self is revealed to us, moment by moment.
