With a loving heart, I practice nonresistance.
I may not always agree with another person’s opinion. During those times, I focus on the idea of nonresistance – an acceptance of what is without judgment or condemnation. Applying spiritual discernment, I acknowledge my opinion is just one viewpoint.
Continuing to discern, I realize that resisting a situation I don’t like or trying to change the perspective of another does not lead to peaceful solutions. Instead, I center myself in my awareness of my true nature. I recognize the Truth that there is only Oneness and shift my thinking and actions to reflect that knowing.
External events and situations have no effect on the calm peace of my soul. With a loving heart, I accept what is. Through the practice of nonresistance, I learn to look for the gifts in every experience. I move through life with patience, love and nonresistance.
