"The more important a call or action is to our soul's evolution, the more Resistance we will feel toward pursuing it. Resistance will tell you anything to keep you from doing your work. It will perjure, fabricate, falsify, seduce, bully, cajole. Resistance is protean. It will assume any form, if that's what it takes to deceive you. It will reason with you like a lawyer or jam a nine-millimeter in your face like a stick-up man. Resistance has no conscience. It will pledge anything to get a deal, then double-cross you as soon as your back is turned. If you take Resistance at its word, you deserve everything you get. Resistance is always lying and always full of shit."

Here's that excellent excerpt again from Steven Pressfield's excellent book, THE WAR OF ART, a handbook on how to deal with one's inner Resistance to change and growth.

I often tell my patients that when they are about to break through to a better, higher place, their Resistance, in its death throws, will fight with all of its might to undermine their progress. It is at that time that a determined, 24-7, whatever-it-takes effort is required to dissolve the resistance.

The same applies and is equally true for the development of our collective self. Right now, our world, and our society in particular, is engaged in a quantum paradigm shift to a higher level of awareness and oneness. As a reaction to that advance, our collective Resistance, in its death throws, is throwing the kitchen sink at us. The lunatic fringe of our society, now in its death throws, isn't just saying "no" to every progressive move we are making collectively, they are saying: "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!"

These retrogressive, racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, greedy, needy, prescription drug-filled, numbskull Deliverance hypocrites are not only willing to, but they are determined to try and take the entire country down rather than give way to a new day of conscious living.

So, like the Resistance in each one of us that acts against our higher well-being, these forces must be dissolved. Not with violence or oppression, of course, because that would actually feed the negativity of the Resistance, just as suppression of our individual feelings feeds the existence of our own internal resistance. No, these dinosaurs can only be made to accept extinction by exposure. That is why, as distasteful as it is, this blog continues to use the hammer of exposure to display for all to see the inane, fear-and hate-driven ignorance of the Resistance. It must be dissolved, not silenced or suppressed.

This is not a "difference of opinion" here folks, or different political philosophies clashing right now. This is the unevolved, infantile part of us having a tantrum, and like all little ones screaming for more cookies, they don't get or care about what's good for them or anyone else.

And so, I continue to do my part in the exposure campaign.

The light of awareness is always the way out.
