The Path Of No Resistance

Envision your journey through life as the River of Life that takes you to different scenery (experiences). You can float effortlessly on the River, or it can be a trying experience where you fight the current. Unfortunately, many people are fighting the current now. As we progress on the path of remembrance back to God, it is a blessing when we understand the path of least resistance. This involves some dead ends where we think we are on the main current but we are on a side current that brings us up against the rocks on the side. These are not wasted experiences --- we learn what is right for us through contrast, by taking the wrong current. If we learn from these "wrong" experiences, we come to a high path --- the path of no resistance. This is where we have abandoned any pretense of thinking we know what is best for us and we allow the main current --- the God stream ---to carry us without any effort on our part. After struggling for so long against what IS, we finally recognize that of ourself, we are nothing and that our effort actually impedes us floating effortlessly. This is called full surrender, and this is the only place you can find His joy and peace.
