Resistance tends to strengthen the energies it attempts to oppose by giving them power and energy to work against.
It is easy to witness this in my high school students. They are constantly in a state of drama. Especially the girls, and I am not being sexist. The kids energies and emotions are all over the place. The good thing is as quickly as something flares up it calms down again.
Two days ago a young lady approached me with a problem she was having with another student. I asked her why are you giving up your energy to this person. I think she understood that by talking and getting upset about something she could not do anything about, was a waste of her time. As long as she resisted what was, she was never going to get over it. One of my favorite saying is “Get off the cross, use the wood to build a bridge and get over it.”
I guess the opposite of resistance is acceptance. So there is the solution. By accepting what is we retain our energy and in most cases allow our energy to grow. Pretty cool right? The “tance” in both word mean the act of. So it really is another case of acting our way into good thinking, which gets us into good feeling.
