Quotes by Maria Mar
Resistance is walking against the Winds of Change. When you resist you cannot receive.
Think about it…
Why do you resist what you want?
You resist something you want because it’s new and therefore you are not familiar with it. This leaves you paddling in the murky waters of the past, full of debris and waste. As long as you resist the unfamiliar you are unable to unable to move to new, fresh waters.
Anything that you want is by definition new, otherwise you’d have it already. But your RAS, your Reticular Activating System, does not allow anything in that is not familiar.
It especially repels anything that is not congruent with who you feel yourself to be.
What can you do to stop resisting?
The response is in your Internal Actions such as allowing, listening and receiving.
These subtle intentional processes do several things:
- Allowing tells RAS that it’s OK, that this is part of who you are. Pushing will only get more pushing… back.
- Listening allows you to find the way in which what you desire is familiar, so that it can then be accepted by RAS.
- Receiving opens your cells to the environment. It is a signal that what approaches is desired and good. It is the green light for RAS.
Because there is resistance, these actions need to be engaged consistently. Like water currents that massage the rocks, smoothing them out; these three Internal Actions smooth away your resistance because they also allow, listen to and receive that resistance, so that it can then be dispelled.
