People often believe that they are doing this all wrong, or that they’ve somehow messed it up. And while indeed it is possible to temporarily be moving away from your desire, in the longterm view, you are always on your path. Everything that comes up is on your path. It has been hand-picked by the […]
So imagine this scene:
You’re standing in front of the mirror. You take a look at your reflection, and you really don’t like the expression on your face.
So you stand there, waiting for the reflection to smile. You stand there for a minute, two minutes, five minutes… and that reflection just persistently holds on to that same expression. Though perhaps it’s looking more annoyed at this point…
Now you might think this is silly. You’ll say, “Of course I wouldn’t expect my reflection to change, unless I change myself. If I want it to smile, then I’d have to smile first.”

Is there a method that can just melt away that resistance effortlessly?
I don't want to promise more than I can deliver. Any technique will take practice, and there is no silver bullet to instantly and irrevocably remove any and all resistance.
However, if you regularly apply the techniques I'll discuss in this post, you will find it far easier to remove stubborn resistance.
