Spiritual love is easy. Resisting it is hard. But resistance is what we’ve been taught. It’s what we settle for and plan our lives around.
Resistance means trying to control things by defining them, before they have even been experienced. It means denying what we go through before we have seen the lessons there. This is the detrimental consequence of resistance. It keeps us from actualizing what we came here to experience and thus squanders the opportunities of our human lives.
In your own life, every time that you ignore an experience, you resist what is asking to be felt. Every time that you measure a human being, you resist the love that is asking to be known. And when you focus on what you aren’t getting from the people and situations around you, you end up limiting your very self. Because the judgment that you inflict upon the world begins and ends with you.
The truth is that it takes tremendous work to perpetuate such limitation. It is endlessly exhausting to constantly judge your little world. But you can decide to let this thinking go and expand your consciousness. You can open your magnificent heart and feel the ease of love instead.
Of course, opening your heart can be scary. There’s a lot you have buried in there. But once you acknowledge how you really feel about what you have been through, you can let it go. It finally stops defining you.
And then you will feel a peace you may have forgotten, perhaps for a very long time. You may even begin to feel ecstatic, as you let love flow through your being again. This is the love that you come from. It is who you really are.
You see, love is easy. Resisting it is hard. You are here to remember this and to act with love instead. That is why you are living as a human being – to heal yourself by surrendering yourself to effortless spiritual love.
