Breakthroughs do not happen when we are stressed. They happen when
we finally let go and stop struggling. Resisting is at the heart of
struggle. Although what we are resisting feels like it is “out
there” the resistance is really inside of us. That is, if you are
resisting anything you are really resisting yourself.
When we resist something we increase the amount of struggle in our
lives and this in turn increases how much scarcity we experience.
When we resist, we make things harder than they have to be. By
making things difficult we create struggle and prolong getting
where we want to be.
We make things complicated because we are afraid to decide. It is
partly our fear of the unknown – what will happen if – and partly
our fear of making a mistake. The excuse I hear most from my
clients is that are afraid they may make the “wrong” decision.
There is the fear that somehow they will permanently be locked into
the consequences of their choices.
But consider this for a moment. What if there are no “wrong”
choices, only choices. Even if we don’t make the best choice, we
will be guided to what we need to learn.
All great athletes understand this concept. They know they can only
anticipate so much, but have to make constant instantaneous
decisions IN THE MOMENT as each new situation arises.
So who wouldn’t want to stop struggling? More people than you can
imagine. I struggled for most of my life with the illusion of
struggle. The power of any illusion is its ability to keep us
thinking the illusion is real.
When you give up struggle it involves letting go of both the past
and the future to activate what is needed right now.
It is not your hard work that creates the results, but your ability
to give up struggling and forcing things to happen.
Flow happens when we accept and embrace “WHAT IS”. Flow happens
when we release our death grip on resistance and insistence and
instead step back and take more conscious actions.
Flow is the lack of resistance. It is effortless. The magic in life
is believing in possibilities and the getting out of your own way.
Today will bring you a new awareness, a lesson or a manifestation
that you are making progress – IF YOU LOOK FOR IT! No matter how
large or small, please record it in your Evidence Journal. It will
only take a few moments and will AUTOMATICALLY put you in the Flow.
