Whatever we resist is strengthened by our resistance. Two spiritual principles which amount to the same thing: (1) Resist nothing. (2) Stop trying. There will come a day when these subversives are taught routinely, as a matter of necessity. For now, ego’s handling things.
Make no plans. Or as Jesus said, “Take no thought for tomorrow.” Re-stated in the positive: Let life lead. Welcome what comes. All of it. No exceptions, exclusions or judgements. “This being human is a guest house,” Rumi wrote. “Every morning a new arrival.”
Men are taught how to fix things. What they’re not taught is how to be a space for what happens. How to allow. How not to resist. “Male and female he created them, and called their name Adam, in the day they were created.”
