Why is resistance so popular? I read recently that what people want most is sovereignty.......that is; supreme power or authority over themselves.
This makes a lot of sense. No one wants to spend any of their personal time in life doing something that is dictated by someone else. This is why kids can't wait to grow up. We all remember saying those things to ourselves about being free to choose everything once we are grown up and no longer under our parents control.....I do!
As societies go, no one group wants to be under the control of another.....
We all want to be free!
We want someone to do something about all those who would run roughshod over us in all manner of obvious and not so obvious controls while we are living out all this self directed destiny. We would like someone to provide some peace and security so that we can enjoy this sovereign existence......please.
Here is where resistance comes in. Opposing forces! Opposing desires! Opposing wills!
My sovereignty against yours.
The stage is now set for the ultimate competition.....Who will win over whom in the fight for the thing they now threaten?
The absurdity of this situation is clear and we live it out every day.
With resistance. The only way to live out this illogical and unwinnable battle is to resist our inner wisdom and the constant call of humanity.
In every moment of every day every member of the human race hears the call of their fellow beings. I believe that we all know in our bones that we are all connected to each other and that to deny another is to deny ourselves. We can feel in our hearts that when we reach out to help another that we are helping ourselves. I believe we know that fear is running the show and that when we assert our sovereignty over one another's we are losing our own.
We know in these same bones that our axis is amiss and that something must be done to fix it or we will fall out of orbit.
We must justify. We must straighten out this axis if we are all to be spared.
Now, who will be first?
Who will offer space to the other? A srtip of land? A helping hand?
We can do it where we are......I'm not the owner of a great piece of the world but I do walk about in it and I do come into contact with others every day and likely, so do you. With some self-honesty and self-reflecting I can do some straightening wherever I am. Resistance begins on the cellular level of each of us as a living being. It can be uncovered and discarded.... rooted out of our hearts and minds.
If this option doesn't seem workable then the only other one is to
........and this is why resistance is so popular.
