    What IS resistance?

    Resistance is about believing
    that you are vulnerable or susceptible
    to something not wanted,
    and holding a stance of protection —
    which only holds you in a place
    of not letting in
    the Well-being that would be there otherwise.

    There is nothing big enough to protect you from unwanted things,
    and there are no unwanted things big enough
    to get into your experience.

    Why do we keep up resistance?



    We (source) canīt figure out, why any of you would be willing to complain, rather than praise,
    -when praise FEELS SO MUCH BETTER.

    Why you would be willing to hate, rather than love-
    -when love FEELS SO MUCH BETTER.

    Why you would be willing to deprive yourself of wellbeing, of vitality, of clarity, of wellness-
    -when wellness and clarity and vitality FEEL SO WONDERFUL!

    And we know, you do it because you got a habit of doing it, and itīs hard to brake habits.
    You do it, because LoA enables you.

    What CONTRAST really means!
    It does NOT mean "resistance".



    We want you to focus with us, for just a little bit,
    and get a sense of this very important contrast.

    We don’t mean conflict.
    We don’t mean agony and defeat and ecstasy and exultation,
    although agony and defeat and ecstasy and exultation certainly
    is a contrasting experience.

    We mean difference.

    Abe



    Just plain "no, thank you" isnīt resistance.
    Resistance is the belief, that I have no power to CHOOSE.
    You are NOT powerless!

    Abe

    You came here willingly -
    the unwillingness happened after you got here.

    Big resistance gathers from many small steps


    If you get a diagnosis that is not what you want to hear, the tendency is to say, "Oh, my god! How did I get so far away from something I want so much?"

    And we say, it isn't big like that at all —
    it's just a series of little things.
    It is the, "I could choose this thought which feels good, or this thought which doesn't feel so good. But I've developed a pattern for what doesn't feel good. And so, it is the daily dose of not being in the receiving mode that keeps me not in the receiving mode."

    And that's all that it is!

    Resistance that is upon your path is SERVING YOU.
    Otherwise, it would not be there.



    You
    (the audience) help us in shoring up, redefining, getting the emphasis in all the right places about the things that matter to you! Iow, you helped us during this conversation, to accomplish a stronger, clearer, surer EXPECTATION of your success, than ever before!

    So as we take pleasure in knowing who you are, and no discomfort at all about where you are in relationship to it, right now- because there is nothing iffy about it. There is a little bit of "when" about it, but there is nothing iffy about it.

    EVERYTHING YOU WANT is in the process of unfolding.

    And so youīve given us a more focused opportunity to sit back in our place of quiet contemplation and anticipation of your discovery of your path of least resistance, on your way to ALL THAT YOU WANT. So what weīr saying to you is, it really doesnīt matter where you stand in relationship to any thing that you want.

    Because, itīs a SURE THING that you are on the way to it! We just wanna soften your anxiety about the speed, with which you are traveling your path.

    We would like to encourage you to slow down and savor,
    WHEREVER you are, just a little more.

    To catch more glimpses, about how WE feel about where YOU are, along your way. To take more pleasure, in this journey. We said to our friends, who got on board of this magnificent cruise-ship, here in Seattle a week ago:

    We said to them, you got on, in Seattle, and in a few days, youīll get off in Seattle, wouldnīt it be disappointing if the captain just said to you: "Hello, weīr glad youīr here. And since youīr getting on, exactly where youīll get off, weīd like you to now get off. This journey is now complete."

    And you would say: "But wait! I didnīt start this journey, just to get where Iīm going! I KNEW I was going to come back to Seattle. But I was interested in things along the way! I was interested in the new experiences. The new conversations, the new perspectives, the new opportunities, the new contrasts, the new giving birth to new desire!"

    And THAT is the way we want you to feel in every moment of your experience: We want you to stand where you are,
    happy and proud and satisfied about WHERE YOU ARE.

    Because even though it is TRUE, you have sometimes introduced unnecessary resistance to your path-
    that resistance that is upon your path is SERVING YOU.
    Otherwise, it would not be there.

    You said: "I will go forth into a time-space-reality where there is contrast, and variety, AND OUT OF IT will be born MY DESIRES." And that is certainly something that is happening for you!

    Because of YOU, the Universe is expanding. Because of YOU, we are able to focus with you, into this leading edge. We cannot find words enough, to describe to you the appreciation we feel, for the on-goingness, that YOU provide, for the eternalness, that YOU put into eternity.

    But we can promise you, that every step along of your journey, we will be there, WITH YOU, proud of you, and sure with you, and if you feel just a little bit,

    you will begin to FEEL the worthiness that is natural, and once you hook into that feeling of self-pride and worthiness, right-place-right-time-ness, -which is what WE feel about you all the time!-

    - then, WHEREVER you are will yield to you ALL THAT YOU WANT it to. There is great love here, for you.

    Moving through Contrast is on the path of least resistance.

    Reality- often- causes you to throw stuff on your path,
    that keeps you from moving into the direction of what you really want!
    We just want you to understand, that youīr doing it!

    (...You are where you are, and source always calls you towards what you want...)
    and isnīt it logical, that- as youīr being called, on your path of least resistance,
    that if youīve got a bunch of resistance on your path- that some of the resistance
    youīve been called through, might not feel so good, as youīr coming through it?

    Whoo, thatīs really worth thinking about it, isnīt it!
    Which means- now this is what we REALLY wanna say,
    we REALLY want you to hear this:

    That sometimes, your own, beloved,
    brilliant pure positive energy inner being
    is calling you right through stuff you do not want,
    ON YOUR WAY to what you do want!
    Ahhhhhhh!!!!
    Itīs THE PATH OF LEAST RESISTANCE!


    (...) Itīs the path of least resistance, and you are where you are.
    So donīt ask yourself to suddenly be some place youīr not-
    youīr gonna move from where you are, so sometimes
    resistance is seen by you.

    But as long you have this knowing, that you are moving,
    and that it IS getting better and better- and better and better
    and better and better and better...
    you see, you didnīt say "Oh, Iīll go to the leading edge!
    Iīll go to this time-space-reality, where everything that is expansion
    is born from- but donīt give me ANY resistance!"

    You didnīt say that. Because you know,
    that knowing what you donīt want is NECESSARY
    to focus you into what you do want!
    Itīs ALL part of it!
    You just never expected to get BIG gaps, between it, you see.

    The more resistance, the more fun the game!


    ...You know what?
    The more resistance, the more fun the game!
    And ask anybody who ever played the game of a great obstacle-course.

    Iow, the more resistance, the clearer you get! The better you get. The more powerful you become. The more help you get, from nonphysical.

    Because this is for sure: YOU CAN NOT LOSE!

    All resistance is,
    is for a moment feeling yourself singular
    instead of plural.
    That is the oneness, the in this together-ness.

    Sometimes Esther will say "that person is really really hard.
    Its just hard. Its just hard. That person rings my bells, yanks my chain.
    That person is hard. And every now and again she says "TOO Hard"!
    "TOO Hard, not worth it! Too hard, NOT worth it!"

    -And you have to
    decide, when the path of least resistance says
    "too hard, NOT worth it".
    And when the path of least resistance says
    "too hard, BUT worth it".
