A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on pain, suffering, resistance, judgment, negativity, moment, and ego

The pain that you create now is always some form of nonacceptance, some form of unconscious resistance to what is. On the level of thought, the resistance is some form of judgment. On the emotional level, it is some form of negativity. The intensity of the pain depends on the degree of resistance to the present moment, and this in turn depends on how strongly you are identified with your mind.

A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, resistance, knowing, truth, human nature, misanthropy, distrust, denial, self-discipline, and self-mastery

The truth about human beings is, above all other forms of truth, something far too susceptible to our own willful and subjectivist distortions; by nature we never JUST LET SUCH A THING BE, or accept it as it is. Of all the decisive and strategic things that an intelligent human being needs to know about human beings, primary on the list would be this: human beings are overwhelmingly profoundly RESISTANT to knowing the truth about human nature. The one creature in all of organic nature that is capable of KNOWING its own nature is also, paradigmatic over all other creatures, the one most IN DENIAL about that nature. To ask of mortals that they should "know themselves" is little more than a cruel joke, japing at their crippled mentality and personality. Their grasp of this structural perversity or contrariety within human nature is the basis of all Greek wisdom, their aristic "misanthropy" or principled and profound distrust of human beings as pseudophiliacs. All that human beings are willing to call "truth" (for the most part) is some saccharine or cosmetic sweetness and light, some soporific opiate against all in human existence that might demand the utmost self-discipline, rationality, self-mastery, or spirituality from them.

A Quote by Esther Hicks on resistance, how, and contradictory vibration

When you talk about what you want and why you want it, there's usually less resistance within you than when you talk about what you want and how you're going to get it. When you pose questions you don't have answers for, like how, where, when, who, it sets up a contradictory vibration that slows everything down.

A Quote by Peter O. Erbe on materialize, misinterpretation, mirror of our immediate material environment, resistance, and undesirable

"We have our 'nose full' of a particular situation and so this mental condition is reflected on the mirror of our immediate material environment, which is our body. This feeling of having one's 'nose full' is but a misinterpretation of our situation. Certain aspects are resisted as undesirable. If we had seen them as equally valid to the desirable ones, then they would not have mattered enough for us to evaluate them unequally and what does not matter in this manner, does not materialize.

A Quote by Frederick Douglass on injustice, tyrants, oppression, and resistance

"Find out just what the people will submit to and you have found
out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon
them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words
or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the
endurance of those whom they oppress."

Frederick Douglass (1817? - 1895)

A Quote by Albert Einstein on peace, non-violence, resistance, and gandhi

It is my belief that the problem of bringing peace to the world on a supranational basis will be solved only by employing Gandhi's method on a larger scale.
