The american writer Neale Donald Walsch once wrote:
What you resist will persist!
I'd say what you resist often grows stronger and stronger,
since you give it all you attention, energy and force.
Even the bible says I urge you not to resist evil,
cause resisting means you create and opposite and equal respons.
So what could help us to overcome?
It is what the chinese call wu wei,
which means doing by not doing.
Acting whithout a show of force,
whit a tenacity that leaves nothing to be desired
gives us and others more room
to overcome the difficulty we are facing.
Of course this also means you're in for the long haul.
On the other hand if you come with a show of force,
you might succeed temporarily,
but eventually it will come back to bite you
since most people resent being pressured.
And this means often we start aswell as
fuel a longtime conflict because of that.
It also means we often waist a lot of time
and precious energy to prove our point.
Aswell as that we often tend to loose touch
with the ones we're trying to reach.
So what do you think,
would you prefer to step into that loophole
that keeps somany people from seing eye to eye.
Or are you willing to explore a different approach,
which in the long run, pays of as we maintain living
a peacefull and harmonious life?
Be blessed and give it your best!
