“Gandhi built his whole philosophy of life around the theory of nonviolence. An ancient Chinese sage said that all things are possible to the person who can perfectly practice inaction. And the Bible exclaims: “Be still, and know that I am God.” Surely some great truth must be contained in these simple thoughts.
“Today I practice nonresistance. Disregarding everything that contradict the Reality in which I believe, I affirm that It is operating in my life. Turning resolutely from everything that denies the good I wish to experience, I affirm that good. There is no situation or condition that resists this transcendent thought…”
– “365 Science of Mind: A Year of Daily Wisdom from Ernest Holmes,” March 23
This reading reminds me of the idea of that which we resists, persists. Since my thoughts are creative, I focus on the good I want to experience, and with Spirit’s transcendent power, that is what comes to pass. Resisting anything will only actually keep it in my life, the opposite of what I am trying to achieve.
I surrender and my good flows to me.
