Resistance is doing its job

 

I went to a concert with Jean Michel Jarre yesterday and had a seat just in front of a booth with noisy drunk people. Some irritation came up along with the thoughts…. they are obnoxious, they are disrespectful, they ruin my experience. 

A bit later, there was a shift and I saw that they were only doing their job. In that situation, their job was to be loud and drunk – and, in my mind, obnoxious. They were doing their job very well, and it was perfectly OK.

On my way home, another shift happened and it was clear that beliefs and resistance are doing their job too. They are doing it perfectly, and it’s OK.

By seeing this, there is a shift out of resistance. It allows for it to be held differently, related to with a bit more kindness and wisdom.

Seeing beliefs and resistance as a problem, there is identification and wrestling. Finding more clarity and seeing that beliefs/resistance are doing their job, there is a release.
