I posted a few new quotes about resistance at www.conflictquotes.com and wanted to share them here:
“What you resist not only persists, but will grow in size.” Carl Gustav Jung
Even in your rightness about a subject, when you try to push your rightness toward another who disagrees, no matter how right you are, it causes more pushing against. In other words, it isn't until you stop pushing that any real allowing of what you want can take place.
"All resistance reflects an unmet need, and is a request for authentic communication."
"To fly, we have to have resistance."
“Pain is a relatively objective, physical phenomenon; suffering is our psychological resistance to what happens. Events may create physical pain, but they do not in themselves create suffering. Resistance creates suffering. Stress happens when your mind resists what is... The only problem in your life is your mind's resistance to life as it unfolds. ”
― Dan Millman
