Resistance or Aliveness, what’s it gonna be?

Resistance or Aliveness, what’s it gonna be?


Let’s start with the morning: do you joyfully jump out of bed bright eyed and bushy tailed? Or do you resist the intrusion of the alarm clock or the daylight poking you to get up?

Do you hear that sweet little voice whispering in your heart to meditate a bit, but you resist that voice telling yourself that you don’t have time?

And this impulse to check your day in the context of your week? Creating clarity in your mind what the important priorities are? Priorities that deserve prime attention and only then the world of urgencies would get your attention? Are you resisting making a conscious plan?

And that hug you just got from your partner? Did you resist that too? Were you fully present? Probably a part of you was already half on the way to the office. And in the traffic, do I need to say something about resistance there?

And what about your job? Zero resistance? Fantastic! Stop reading and celebrate your life! Aha, I got you – like 99% of the others – you too resist your job.

Truth be told, if you had 100 Million U$ in your bank account, would you continue exactly what you do? You wouldn’t, would you?

Resisting to say yes. Resisting to commit. Resisting to wait. Resisting to work 2hrs longer. Resisting to accept support. Resisting to give up a bad habit. Resisting to see an inconvenient truth. Resisting to invest. Even resisting resistance.

Resistance gives you a false sense of power; saying “no!” flatters your ego and boosts your vanity. It’s a con that comes with a high price.

Before I go on, maybe we should start really with the core: maybe you resist life itself?

I mean: the full, whole-hearted participating in life! Most people are resisting being fully alive. Sounds weird I know, but take a look… don’t you feel this permanent and unconscious having your foot on the break, while trying to accelerate your life?

Giving up all your resistance would mean an instant energy shot of gigantic dimensions, because all your life you have been resisting. Resistance became your way of life.

The moment you stop pushing against life, all that energy you needed day by day to generate for resisting is now free. Boooom!

You were wondering what aliveness really feels like? Her you go! Without any side effects! J

You may think that resistance protects your interests. Yes, but who’s interests? Your ego’s interests to be miserable, poor and lonely, but right?

Who’s interests? Your wounded, scared, damaged subconscious, which believes it is not good enough, not worthy, not deserving?

Who’s interests? Your perfectionist’s, who never feels complete, never fulfilled, never liberated? Who’s interests? Your anxiety’s, which worries by default about everything and nothing?

Do you still think that resistance is having YOUR best interests in mind?

I dare you to doubt.

The price for a false sense of being protected by your resistance is huge: your aliveness! Even biologically you are losing plenty of years hosting the energy of resistance. But life is more than biological survival.

If you dare to challenge yourself for one day to take life for a test ride without resistance, you will set yourself up for meeting an army of unrecognized resistances against your attempt to experience how it’s without it. You see what I mean?

Even if you just get more suspicious with regard to your inner “best friends”, your “gut feeling” and so on, it’s a good thing, because you will move faster and more consciously towards what everyone is pulled towards: the liberating surrender to life itself.
