“When you think of resistance as not optimal for your spiritual practice, then that becomes resisting your resistance.” 

“There may be a very good reason that resistance is coming up in your experience. It may be trying to get your attention and have you look at something in your experience more closely.”

“If we can accept the inputs of resistance and learn from it, then we may be able to move beyond the felt discomfort of that resistance. Then the energy of resistance has done its job and can release.”

“The path of becoming more conscious is knowing ourselves as that which has been bearing witness to all of our life.”
