“Through resisting our experiences, we draw more of the same to ourselves. Through focusing on what you don’t want, you attract more of it. A far better (and infinitely more peaceful) approach is to consciously offer no resistance. Simply acknowledge what is there, allow it to be there and know there is nothing “wrong” with it. Be aware of any commentary about the experience. There is no need to fix or change anything. Wanting to fix it will create more of it. Simply seeing it is enough. Then see what happens! If it is true that what you resist persists, the opposite is equally true… what you embrace dissolves. Negative states persist because we give them energy and importance by focusing on them. When we offer no resistance, they wither and fade away, over time and one day you just realise they’ve gone…and when you search for them maybe you feel they are still there, but you’re conscious of the fact they have no power.”
