Use resistance for revelation. Presently the usual first reaction to any unwanted moment is one of resistance, and what we are resisting is the captivity we feel. We are held captive only by identifying with a reaction, which is created by something in us that interprets the moment and comes to a negative conclusion about it. What we are working to see is that resistance is a form of revelation that shows us what we don’t know about ourselves. In the moment where you feel resistance to some unwanted moment, instead of identifying with the reaction and fighting with what is being blamed for the conflict, reclaim your attention and watch the resistance. Remember that the original resistance is an integral part of revelation. The negative reaction comes downstream when there is no awareness of the resistance. Do your best to observe the consciousness that is reacting. Work to learn all you can about resistance. The unwanted moment, and the resistance to it, have both appeared for you for the purpose of revealing and releasing you from a misunderstanding about your life and the purpose of it.
