In a constant struggle to make real what is not real, and true what is not true, you find only suffering
Non-resistance, or acceptance of what is, simply means allowing what is real to be what is true. This realness includes not only the external reality of what happens, not only the thoughts and feelings of others, but also the truth about our own thoughts and feelings. We can let it all be as it is and flow as it does.
While this approach to life would seem obviously superior to the alternative, to the ego it is impossible. The ego is the struggle against reality and the foolish attempt to make true what is not true. Despite the ego’s best intentions, attempting to make illusion real can only lead to ongoing suffering followed by eventual crisis.
Non-resistance is not our diminishment; rather, a decision to come alive in joy. This is love, freedom, and everything we do want. The only requirement is the decision to be honest and to want only truth.
