This next key factor for wellness is something that your ego is going to dislike, but if you incorporate this concept, you will be in the state of wellness where dis-ease cannot exist. Using the simple phrase, “Resist nothing” brings about a state of wellness. Because, only the things you resist can harm you, and if you don’t resist, it cannot cause any harm.
Now, the challenge with this is the ego wants to be in control. The ego has its own plan. The ego does not like your non-resistance because in its mind, it shows weakness. “Oh, we’re not resisting so they must be winning” is what the ego is saying.
Recently, I was completing business transaction, and we were actually foreclosing on a property (we were the lender/mortgage holder), and I was working close with the borrower. We made arrangements for us to gain possession of the property prior to the foreclosure, so we received keys to the property and reinstated the permits. We stabilized the building and made improvements to protect the asset.
It was at this point that I met with the borrower and he said, that he had spoken to his attorney and was told to take back the keys and to take back possession of the property. Now, we just went through this big contractual obligation where we even paid money for these rights! So my response was simply, “Here are the keys.”
The borrower then stated that he was going to “go downtown and get the permits to demolish the building.” My calm response was, “Fine, knock yourself out. Have fun.” His reply was, “And we’re going to sue you.” I quickly responded with, “You can’t sue me because we’re not resisting. We’re not fighting with you. You want the keys. Here they are. If you want to knock down the building, then knock it down.” I then reminded him that the building didn’t really belong to me, or to him. Everything belongs to God under the Universal Law of possession. Whatever you want to do is fine. I decided that I wasn’t going to give him my peace or buy into the attorney’s idea. I later walked away from that table with the keys, with possession of the property, with everything in full force and they did not knock down the building.
So, the idea is if you don’t resist it, how can it harm you? It cannot. Resist nothing. You are not in charge. You’re just the observer. You’re in charge of your thoughts. You’re in charge in the way in which you respond to situations, but your ego says, “I can.” “I can improve God’s plan. I can improve God’s creations.” Judgment tells you that you can improve individuals, situations, circumstances, and people around you, that you have a better plan than God. The problem is, these ideas do not promote wellness… they promote dis-ease.
It’s so much easier and so much more peaceful if you resist nothing. You’ve got to remember that God looks down at everything and sees everything in order. When you look and see everything in order, you too are at peace. When you have that peace, dis-ease cannot occur. Dis-ease cannot even think about being present.
