Week 3 – The Path of Least Resistance

Many conversations have been discussed surrounding this subject of the path of least resistance (PoLR). Most of us take it to mean taking the easy way out of something, avoiding conflict, circumventing something challenging, etc. Some have proposed that the PoLR does not allow growth as it is from resistance that we expand and become stronger ie. muscle growth through lifting weights, commonly referred to as “resistance training”; likewise life growth through trying experiences (resistance) causing growth/expansion.

However, for the purposes of this discussion, we would like you to consider the PoLR as the path of most allowing; the path of clarity; the path of alignment. The PoLR in life is about vibration. In the vibrational realm of the universe, attention to resistance attracts more resistance, which is completely contrary to the physical world, where we have been taught fight hard to overcome the resistance.

We are not encouraging fleeing from life’s issues (resistance). We are suggesting to take the path of most allowing until you are in better alignment to better address the issue at hand. How do you do this? Through mediation, yoga, taking a nap, sitting in stillness, engaging in fun activities, anything that slows the momentum down long enough to find alignment with your own power and clarity. All that we have asked for and are desiring, God knows, and has created the path to get to it, we just have to let go of resistance and allow. What are your thoughts on the path of least resistance?

    PoLR to me is the path that brings me to my well-being, (the universal state of feeling good), in the most expedient manner. While I agree that we have been programmed to believe that resistance is good, as conscious and deliberate creators of our own destiny, there is that millisecond right after something occurs that we actually can choose to resist it, (fight it / try to control it / or just feel badly about it), or allow it, (accept that everything happens for a reason / believe that ALL our experiences occur to enhance our journey / or focus on the silver lining of it — and yes, there is ALWAYS a silver lining). I consciously attempt to train my mind, in the same manner that we train our bodies through exercise, at each of these instances to choose the latter. And again in the same way that the repetition of the physical exercise strengthens our physical self, the repetition of the spiritual exercise will do the same for our non-physical self until always choosing the PoLR comes to us naturally and easily — as it should.

    Thank you for your thoughts on PoLR. You’re definition is easy to understand and practical. Isn’t it interesting that most often, we take the path of most resistance, which is efforting, struggle, fight, all in the name of nobility. We think we’ve taken the PoLR, when actually we’ve taken just the opposite. And the strange irony is that the very efforting that we employ, the “trying so hard”, keeps us off the very path we’re seeking.
