I talk a lot here about resistance. How we can recognize it and how to allow and let it go. How some will call it stress or karma or identification.
But we should not demonize resistance. Resistance is not a bad thing. It’s a natural response to some aspects of life.
For example, in it’s most basic state, the fear of a wild animal. Or our sense of holding back if something doesn’t feel or look right. Or our hesitation with circumstances if we lack clarity.
Even more deeply, that resistance can act as a natural brake in our spiritual development. Make sure we only open as far as we are prepared to be. Pause before jumping in to a new arena we are unfamiliar with. The divine safety net.
Amusingly, even the blocks to totality are none other than totality itself. Even identified consciousness IS infinite consciousness.
So the deeper secret to allowing is allowing whatever arises. We may find ourselves allowing resistance to release it. Or allowing resistance to resist. Both of them can be the movement to clarity.
It is a curious thing. We work to eliminate obstacles to totality even though both the blocks and the totality are totality. When we can see blocks as unbounded, then there are no obstacles anywhere.
That is the secret of Ganesh.
