A meditative lifestyle
By: / Beginner
Post # 1
I recently realized a way to bring the joy of meditation into everyday life. I would like to share it with you all:

Take lightning, as it jumps from raindrop to raindrop... the exertion of force brought on by the difference in charges takes the path of least resistance.

This is the path I realize I must take. Veering from this path brings resistance, which pushes me back into the path. The right path for a certain person is the path that provides the least resistance, that can come in the form of pain, angst, confusion, and the like. So when one is on the right path, those feelings are minimized.

I hope this helps!

I'm sorry to contradict you Magickthumbs, but sometimes the path with the most resistance is the one we should take. With pain and suffering comes knowledge and with knowledge comes enlightenment. Take for an example: when I was in my first year of high school I wanted to study witchcraft but was afraid of what my parents would think. At the time I thought that my parents opinion were one and the same. A year later I had finally heard that the kind of stuff I was into like Ouija boards and tarrot cards were wrong so many times that I believed it. Then my junior year in high school I started looking up spells online. Then in school I did a project on the Salem Witch Trials. I wanted an opinion from someone who was actually a witch. So, I picked up The Teen Witch By, Silver Ravenwolf and I figured out how much sense it actually made. If my Dad hadn't moved out of the house I wouldn't have had the courage to tell my Mom that I believed it. Sorry for the whole biography here but, I'm just making a point.

Living a life of non-resistance does not mean you do not work hard, have obstacles to overcome, or encounter suffering along the way. That would be wholy unrealistic. They key difference is whether or not you view those situations as oppositional versus part of the Oneness.

everyone is right and that is why topics like these are disscussed for many ages. For you the path of least resistance may be just the path to take, where as for other we need the resistance to learn to push back and become stronger. Not everyone grows or learns the same. Sometimes we just need a little push back to keep going and other times we are perfectly happy riding the waves where ever they may take us.
