Episode 32- How Resisting Life Causes Us Pain

by | Aug 17, 2016

In this new podcast episode, David & Caron Loveless discuss how seeing resistance in life, is your pathway to growth.

Right at the point of our most resistance, to what life seems to be bringing us, is a beautiful place to see God. It is there God is inviting us to relax the tension, let go and let be. If God can be okay and welcome anyone or anything, then the God inside us is all the power we need, to do the same.

Here is a brief summary of today’s episode of “The Live True Podcast.”  You can use this as a reference or reminder of key things you feel like you need to pay attention to or pass on to others, in the next 7 days of your life.

If we can notice our times of resistance without rationalizing our need for it, we can keep positioning ourselves for greater personal and spiritual transformation.

We most often expect to find God in moments of peace, love, and joy. While that is true- it is also true that God is present and at work, in the times we feel most resistant. Someone has said, “What we resist persists.” Resistance is a pretty good sign that some part of our egoic, false self is being triggered. It is right at that point we find our greatest invitation to spiritual maturity.

Most of us say we want to grow and be spiritually mature but in our religious cultures we’ve made it out to be about so many other things… rather than what is most helpful and obvious.

Resistance is rooted in mistrust. Receptivity/acceptance is rooted in trust.

Romans 14  Accept the one whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters. One person’s faith allows them to eat anything, but another, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables. The one who eats everything must not treat with contempt the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must not judge the one who does, for God has accepted them. …

Matt 5:39   But I say to you, do not resist an evil person [who insults you or violates your rights]; but whoever slaps you on the right cheek, turn the other toward him also [simply ignore insignificant insults or trivial losses and do not bother to retaliate—maintain your dignity, your self-respect, your poise].
