Steven Pressfield came up with the term Resistance to describe the force that keeps us from getting where we want to be. It's both the best and the worst name at the same time. It's perfect because it precisely describes the body-based sensation we experience when trying to do something meaningful. It's a poor word choice because inherent in its name is the notion that we have to push back against it in order to "win." But Resistance isn't something to aggress, as much as it's something to understand.
"Resistance obstructs movement only from a lower sphere to a higher. It kicks in when we seek to pursue a calling in the arts, launch an innovative enterprise, or evolve to a higher station morally, ethically, or spiritually."
When you come to understand the concept of FLOW, you'll realize it, like Resistance, only moves in one direction: forward. Resistance is an opportunity to move forward! FLOW and Resistance are two sides of the same coin. They're never in opposition, and they've always operated synergistically. Instead of trying to ignore, reject, or control Resistance, choose to observe, accept, and surrender it. Once you stop fighting it, you'll begin "seeing" it through a broader lens, understanding both its origin and protective function, which positions you to let go of that which no longer serves you.
The only way to understand FLOW, which changes your relationship with Resistance, is to spend time in it. Today, I'm launching pre-course content for The Whole Person Project, and part of this experience is teaching people how to connect to an infinite FLOW within themselves, which becomes their source of unlimited potentials and possibilities. Believe it or not, this begins happening inside of three-minute daily meditations. This level of empowerment alone is worth a hundred times more than the cost of the program. Imagine being UNLIMITED! 24 people have decided to say YES to themselves, and 25 people will achieve the same results when you say YES to yourself too. Registration is open until Monday, February 10th, and reduced rates expire this Friday, February 7th. Click here for details and to register.
