Can you recall a period in your life when everything you tried to do or accomplish was like smacking your head against a brick wall? (i.e nothing is working in your favour?!)
Well today I woke up, opened my email, only to find a transformational piece about 'choosing the path of least resistance,' by the former, Dr. Wayne Dyer.
It was honestly as if someone heard that I needed that guidance right now.
So here it is for all those people struggling to find meaning or gain understanding/enlightenment into what's just not working in their life.
Choose the path of least resistance, to allow yourself to walk into the ease and enjoyment of life.
Article By Dr. Wayne Dyer
You live in a universe that has limitless potential for joy built into the creation process. Your Source, which we call the universal mind of intention, adores you beyond anything you can possibly imagine. When you adore yourself in the same proportion, you’re matched up with the field of intention, and you’ve opted for the path of no resistance. As long as you have even a pinch of an ego, you’ll retain some resistance, so I urge you to take the path in which resistance is minimized.
The shape and quantity of your thoughts determine the amount of resistance. Thoughts that generate bad feelings are resistant thoughts. Any thought that puts a barrier between what you would like to have and your ability to attract it into your life is resistance. Your intention is to live a tranquil life, free of stress and anxiety. You know that stress doesn’t exist in the world, and that there are only people thinking stressful thoughts.
Stressful thoughts all by themselves are a form of resistance. You don’t want stressful, resistant thoughts to be your habitual way of reacting to your world. By practicing thoughts of minimal resistance, you’ll train yourself to make this your natural way of reacting, and eventually you’ll become the tranquil person you desire to be, a stress-free person free of the “dis-ease” that stress brings to the body. Stressful thoughts all by themselves are the resistance that you construct that impedes your connection to the power of intention.
We’re in a world that advertises and promotes reasons to be anxious. You’ve been taught that feeling good in a world where so much suffering exists is an immoral stance to take. You’ve been convinced that choosing to feel good in bad economic times, in times of war, in times of uncertainty or death, or in the face of any catastrophe anywhere in the world is crass and inappropriate. Since these conditions will always be in the world someplace, you believe you can’t have joy and still be a good person. But it may not have occurred to you that in a universe based on energy and attraction, thoughts that evoke feeling bad originate in the same energy Source that attracts more of the same into your life. These are resistant thoughts.
Here are some examples of sentences on the path of resistance, which are then changed to sentences on the path of least resistance.
I feel uneasy about the state of the economy; I’ve already lost so much money.
I live in an abundant universe; I choose to think about what I have and I will be fine. The universe will provide.
I have so many things to do that I can never get caught up.
I’m at peace in this moment. I’ll only think about the one thing I’m doing. I will have peaceful thoughts.
I can never get ahead in this job.
I choose to appreciate what I’m doing right now, and I’ll attract an even greater opportunity.
My health is a huge concern. I worry about getting old and becoming dependent and sick.
I’m healthy, and I think healthy. I live in a universe that attracts healing, and I refuse to anticipate sickness.
— Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
