Resistance is futile, yet we all seem to do it. Where do you resist? Most of us resist stepping into our glory – our Perfection. And, by doing so, we create patterns that continue to pave our roads with uncomfortable asphalt, irritating speed bumps or ridiculously steep grades. Perhaps our well-worn paths need some major work and a detour sign has directed us down the backroads of life.
Nearly all of the repeating “obstacles” in our lives are simply areas where we have forgotten our grandness.Many spiritual teachings use the word “lessons” to imply that we are here to learn. Sure, the human part of our being may need to learn a skill or two, but the spiritual truth is most of our “issues” haunt us because we have lost touch with our essence. Thus, it is not so much learning that we need, it is re-collecting.
Whether we use the word “essence,” “soul,” “Truth,” “Light”, “grandness” or “divinity” doesn’t matter. What matters is that this core part of our being is perfect and whole and is trying to reveal itself to ourselves and to the world. And, since it is eternal, it is more a matter of re-membering – purely merging our everyday selves with our Perfection.
In these times of awakening, our soul’s desire to align its Perfection with our humanness is demanding our attention. When we resist the process of this integration, or ignore it altogether, we experience the Universe reflecting back to us this very resistance.
For example, our belief that we are not whole and Perfect enough to find an adoring lover leaves us miserably single or with an unsatisfying partner. Money, which is how many of us determine our worth, doesn’t flow so easily if we believe we really aren’t that deserving. We don’t have to place judgment on being single or poor, but we typically do when the ideals we carry in our hearts don’t match the reality of our experiences. These experiences often leave us with bad feelings about ourselves and the cycles continue leading us farther from our Perfection.
If you don’t mind such experiences, then pave on! If, however, you wish to create more flow in your life – with money, relationships, joyful living and so on – then the first thing to do is stop resisting your grandness. Moving into your Perfection means you begin to accept yourself as a whole, perfect (yes, even with all your human imperfections!), worthy being. The acknowledgment of this truth becomes the foundation for experiencing less resistance and more flow. It does, however, take mindfulness and a bit of real life footwork.
For those of us who are on the stubborn side, sometimes it takes hearing something over and over and over before we really get it:
“You are a divine, grand, perfect being of truth and light.”
Are you ready to step into this truth? You might want to consider it since “what you resist, persists.”
