A Quote by Evelyn Rodriguez on beauty, inspiration, hardship, resistance, and creation

Whatever your complaints are, your resistances, your avoidances, your limitations, your constraints, your frustrations - what if they actually were the necessary ingredients for the alchemical recipe of creation? Whatever you have to work with, why not entertain the thought that those are precisely the threads that She needs to weave Beauty? That our travails is the travel (etymology of the word travel comes from travail)? That's the way of Her open road?

A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on resistance, reality, and life

You cannot resist something to which you grant no reality. The act of resisting a thing is the act of granting it life. When you resist an energy, you place it there. The more you resist, the more you make it real—whatever it is you are resisting.

Neale Donald Walsch

A Quote by Sheradon Bryce on mans mind, gods mind, follow joy, truth, joy, mystery, school, life, living in body, one with body, denial, resistance, and flesh

You did not come here to conquer flesh. You came here to live in it. You came here to be part of it, not to destroy it, not to repress it and not to conquer it. If you are not one with your body you will be owned. If you go into social consciousness from an image standpoint you are owned also. ...If you cannot see the world and hear the world then you can be fully controlled. These mystery schools, all of your religions, all of your dogmas, all of these that have secrets, all have penalties. Every one of them will take your life away; they will take the love away from you which is worse than taking your life. The only school that exists is LIFE and that is no mystery....Why are you not yet living it? (pg 422-424)

Within your beings, always simply remember, if you follow no other truth, follow the truth that within your being is called joy. If you follow that , you're always going to be right where you need to be, and you will always have life within your being. That's where you need to be. ...when you are faced with something that gives you fear, realize that fear is of man's mind- not God's. So realize that within your being you already have everything you need to go home. (p437) Joy is the fastest way to bypass the circuitry you have with your subpersonalities. (p166)

A Quote by Thomas Moore on soul, mates, intact, resistance, sensitivity, sensitivities, defense, feelings, honest, emotions, healing, understanding, compassion, and self acceptance

“Often we may feel that something in us doesn’t want to be understood or healed. We don’t want to go to the doctor. We decide against taking a class. We’re tired of the friend who always tries to change us, give us advice, or figure us out. These feelings, sometimes dismissed as resistance or defense, may be Daphne sensitivities, honest emotions keeping the soul intact.”
    From “Soul Mates” ~ Thomas Moore ~

A Quote by Gay Hendricks on intimacy and resistance

The heart of the matter is that there is nothing the matter with our hearts.  It is not love that is to blame.  But each of us has resistance to the very love we desire.  We also have resistance to the space and independence we need.  So we go back and forth, not letting ourselves have one or the other.  Sometimes it is difficult to accept that it is our own resistance, rather than other people or the world, that is responsible for out problems.  Try on the idea, though, because it has powerful consequences.  It means that you are in charge again, and are in a position in which you can do something about how your life goes.

It boils down to this:  Are you willing to have your relationships be a pathway to fully revealing yourself and your potential?  If your answer is yes, real intimacy can be yours on a dail basis.

A Quote by Steven Pressfield on desire, life, resistance, and achievement

Most of us have two lives. The life we live, and the unlived life within us. Between the two stands Resistance.
