The Law of Non-resistance

The law of non-resistance teaches that whenever you resist some situation, you are giving more power to it. This way you make the problem increasingly harder to solve.

What you resist always persists. This is because by resisting something you are directing negative energy to that object.

You make it stronger therefore it affects you more negatively. The problem may even appear too big to be solved.

You start feeling disempowered and you lose hope that you can overcome such situation.

This happens because you use your energy to resist the situation, and you have no or little energy left to actually overcome it. By acting this way you disobey the law of non-resistance.

The first sign of resisting any situation is when you start struggling with it. Struggle always shows that you are going against the flow. You should change the direction whenever you notice that you always struggle with some situation in your life.

How to make the law of non-resistance work for you

The best way to approach any problem is by firstly acknowledging it. You should see the situation for what it is, and not neglect any aspect of it. After acknowledging it you should take action from the present moment, rather than from over-thinking.

Whenever you acknowledge the problem, you completely surrender to it. By that you are saying to yourself ‘I know that I have the problem in my life’. This lets you see the situation in the best way possible – for what the situation truly is.

Whatever action you take from such acknowledgement will be the correct action. Why? Because by acting from the state of acknowledgement you are giving only positive energy to the action you are taking to solve a problem.

Whenever you give out positive energy, you receive positive energy back. So when you take a positive action to solve a problem, you will get a solved problem in return. You should always take positive rather than negative action. This way you will make the law of non-resistance work for you.

If you see no way to solve a problem, you should leave it for a while. When you come back to it, you will notice that the problem was solved by someone else or you will get ideas in your mind that will lead you to the solving of a problem.

But that will only happen if you leave the problem unsolved with a peaceful mind rather than worrying about it throughout the day.

Going with the flow

There is only one reason why some problems cannot be solved. They indicate that you are going against rather than with the flow of life.

When you go with the flow, you are heading towards your life’s purpose.

Whenever you encounter big problems that cannot be solved, it means you have just turned upstream trying to paddle against the flow.

By doing this you ignore the law of non-resistance, and the ignorance of this universal law brings struggle and suffering.

If you try really hard and finally overcome such situation (I am talking about years here rather than moments of your life) you can achieve your desired outcome.

But you will see that the outcome does not make you happy or that it is not what you expected.

This is the price you pay for struggling and failing to correct your course.

Whenever you feel that there is something constantly preventing you from overcoming some obstacle, your should start thinking what other options you have.

For example, if you constantly meet misfortunes in your current business (no clients although business was established for 6 months, for example), you should start thinking of selling/liquidating it and starting another company or doing something else.

By doing that you will stop yourself from going further away from your life’s purpose.

Whenever you feel that everything is going great and that obstacles solve themselves, someone else solves them for you or you easily overcome them, it means that you are going with the flow – you are using the law of non-resistance to your benefit.

When that happens, unaware people consider themselves ‘lucky’. This not luck, it is just the correct path they are taking. And those ‘unlucky’ ones that only meet misfortunes are not really unlucky, they are just heading the wrong way.

Conclusion

Whenever you encounter some difficulty you should never fight it. Acknowledge it, surrender to it and take action from the present moment. This way the action you will take will always be the best way to solve the problem.

When there is no way to overcome some difficulty, it means you are going against the law of non-resistance and you should change the direction instead of struggling with your current situation.
