Re: What you resist persists - why?

So why does what you resist persist? Because if you are resisting something you are focusing on that thing, event, situation even if it's something you do not want. What you focus upon expands and persists. If we classify something as undesirable, unpleasant or dangerous we create a nervous respons...

Re: End of Suffering??

Desire is what gets most of us out of bed in the morning. Desire is what makes us try to be a better person. Desire is what motivates us to learn more about spirituality...but then who said "even the desire for enlightenment is still a desire that must be relinquished"? I like what rt said about gi...

Re: End of Suffering??

Mooji is exactly right. It again depends upon where that 'wanting' is stemming from. You can want something without basing your happiness off of that something and understand that it's not the end of the world, if you don't get it. Of course, you'd have to be deeply rooted in 'presence'. However, i...

Re: End of Suffering??

If you want something you will suffer at some point. Mooji says: "As long as there is wanting in you, especially for someone or something to make you happy; Paradoxically, this is a sure way to make yourself feel miserable." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUXYs5AQHWc Nice video with a small example,...

What you resist persists - why?

Carl Jung was the first who said "What you resist persists" Then, the Universal Law, the LOA...so why? The Universe gives you more of what you are focusing on, so if you want a "X" situation in your life, of course you do not want a "Y" situation. So, the Universe should respond by saying ok, I will...

Re: Go with the flow

This may make no sense to you as it's only my personal perspective :D It does make sense tomtom, thank you very much What's the proper balance between passivity (letting things take their course without intruding) and activity (taking action that changes the course things take)? thank you rachMiel,...

Re: Go with the flow

If you gave a specific example (fictional or real) of what you're talking about, it might be easier to understand exactly what you're getting at. As it stands now, it's unclear to me. Hi rachMiel, thank you :) Sometimes you complain about a situation, or you want more, or you do not trust in someon...

Re: Go with the flow

thank you so much onceler and tomtom! :) Is the choice you made not just part of the flow? :D : maybe yes, but it was more something you like to change or to confirm, some doubt was raised for a moment, your action received a reaction - and the result was worse than you thought, the direction of the...

Go with the flow

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” - Lao-Tzu Is it possible to restore the flow? Some situation has happened and for some moment you are not acceptin...

Returning to life

Hi all, I was traveling for some days and I was feeling very good. But I had to return home and I today I was thinking about my life again. I don’t feel the old pain, I remember about it, but the feeling is different. It is like I have accepted what happened. If I start to think about it, I feel sad...

Re: Writing and Speaking

Let's see...when you are spontaneous, candid, honest and clear about what you are feeling, these people think you are pretending to feel good? How do you know? What exactly do they say or show in body language / tone of voice? Maybe I am doing assumptions some of the times. But I can realize that s...
