Resistance is the Search

by Michael Simmons on Mar 16, 2013

When what we resist is accepted, then the search for what we don’t have disappears.

With the search gone, we find that we are home.

We are home where we’ve always been, but it is the first time that we realize we are there.

The feeling that’s left is gratefulness.

Over the last few months, there has been a lot of change in my life. But, really there has been a lot of change in my thinking. Letting go is painful at first and freeing at second.

As what I resist occurs, and I accept that it is occurring and that it is for the best and always has been, the space for peace is created.

As relationships, thoughts, and situations enter that space of peace, they become part of it and the space grows larger and deeper.

I know this is true.
