One cold autumn day many years ago my old friend Joe and I were towing his antique truck from its storage place back to his house.
The truck’s suspension system was in pretty bad shape. So we tied several concrete blocks to the front bumper, thinking that would stabilize the truck while we towed it.
About halfway to Joe’s house we noticed the truck suddenly became lighter and easier to tow, creating less resistance to the tow vehicle we were using.
When we got home we saw the concrete blocks had fallen off somewhere along the way. Obviously, that was the reason the truck became easier to tow.
It became a standing private joke between Joe and me for many years. Whenever either of us ran up against a problem, we’d remind each other to “Drop your blocks.” Meaning, when you quit resisting, life just gets easier and things simply flow better.
Do you have any blocks you need to drop?
The biggest challenge most humans face in their lifetimes is their resistance to what they do not want. And yet resistance only brings more of what you do not want.
There are two principles — or laws, if you like — at work here.
The first is what many of you call the Law of Attraction. Simply said, the Law of Attraction, dictates you will always get more of what you put your focus on. Always. No exceptions.
If you are focusing on something through your resistance to it, you’ll get more of it. And if you’re focusing on something through your appreciation of it, you’ll get more of it. You get what you focus on. Period.
The second principle is simply allowing all others to be whatever they choose to be. Whether you agree with it or not. You will find great peace and joy, friends, in simply following your own bliss, and ignoring what others are doing.
Resist what others are doing and you’ll end up frustrated and drained. Allow others what they are doing and concentrate on what you are doing, and you’ll end up joyful and energized.
Money is not the root of all “evil.” Resistance is.
Resistance is the cause of not only physical illness, but also wars, poverty, epidemics, and all the other ills you want to banish from your planet.
The root of resistance is fear. When you have a society, or an entire world, living in fear, and the resulting pain that fear produces, you’re going to have lots of resistance.
No one has a monopoly on resistance. You find it not just in individual humans, but even “institutionalized,” if you will, in governments, nations, religions, schools, and so on.
The fact you can wage war, condemn others of different races or religions, commit horrible crimes against one another is positive proof of fear running rampant in your society. These things would be eliminated if you gave up your resistance.
If you could erase resistance from the face of your planet, all the ills of your society would vanish in a heartbeat.
As more and more of you follow the path of non-resistance, you€™ll find your lives becoming far more peaceful, abundant, and joyful.
You can create what you call peace on earth only by starting with yourself. That’s where it all begins and ends — with you.
