Haleya and I were big Star Trek fans. One group of bad guys were the Borg. They were this big amalgamation, part human part machine, that was always flying around in space absorbing every living thing in its/their path into its collective. As they were about to absorb another poor soul, their great line was "Resistance is futile."
We love to apply this quote ironically to what happens when we ask for growth or some mainfestation and then it actually begins happening. "Resistance is futile," we laugh and say. This is what happens: we have a dream of what we want to do, then put out the desire for it, and then the universe/god/love starts manifesting the necessary changes in order to create and manifest what we have wished for. Our little selves don't like to change, so they resist. We whine, we beg, we get mad, we get annoyed, we even get scared, but its all part of the changes and letting go required to manifest exactly what we've asked for. And once you've gone past a certain point of commitment to what you want, there really is only one way to go and that is forward towards it. So it is here we joke and say,"Resistance Futile!"
Letting go is required to receive what we have asked for. Isn't it ironic that we fight against it? We asked for it. Are we willing to make the changes necessary to receive our gift? Can we let go and say, "I surrender to what I want? I embrace what my Soul is asking for? I acknowledge what I really want to be?" Can we be that big? Can we be that open? Can we be that happy? "Resitance is futile!"
