(Taken from the book: Power, Freedom and Grace by Deepak Chopra)
Difficult situations don’t create suffering; resistance to what is creates suffering.
When you experience resistance, your unconscious mind is perceiving a situation as intolerable.
Separate the situation from this moment, and surrender to the moment. Join the flow of life. The situation may be intolerable, but this moment is still perfect.
To surrender and do whatever the situation demands, you are establishing in BEING while performing the action.
When you surrender to this moment, you act from the level of your soul. When you act from the level of your soul, you act like a true spiritual warrior: without anger, without self-righteousness, without resentment, without grievousness. You act without being compulsively driven by a memory of resentment or being wronged.
If you flow with the moment, your will becomes aligned with the will of the one BEING.
Act moment by moment as the detached silent witness, then you will act with spontaneous right action, with timing and finesse.
When you live in the moment, you live from the source. If your attention is in the moment, if you pay attention to what is, then you see the fullness in every moment.
NOW is the door to eternity. In every moment, the door is open to the source. The source has never left you.
