RESIST NOT EVIL
RESIST NOT EVIL?
"Resist Not Evil" - What Does This Mean?
“As a man thinketh in his heart so is he...” Proverbs 23:7
Whatever a man thinks, he creates.
Whatever a person focuses on, that, he shall have.
This is such a simple concept and yet we have not grasped it. Jesus was quoted as saying, “Resist NOT evil.” WHY did he say that? And why do we continue to resist it?
The word “resist” here is key. He knew that in our resistance and focus, we will create MORE of what we are actually NOT wanting. THINK ABOUT THAT.
Let me explain further: The human being is endowed with this “pearl of great price,” something that has been forming within the human race for eons. This “treasure” hidden within the human field is the ability to create. Whatever the human focuses his/her thought and emotion upon he/she creates MORE of what he/she thinks about.
Let’s say a woman experiences betrayal and thinks about the circumstances of the betrayal time and time again, and feels the pain, and sheds the tears because of the pain she re-lives. There is a deep cry coming from within her being that is actually requesting, ASKING to be betrayed!
The Universe does not discriminate. It hears the vibrational request because a human being is focusing thought and emotional currency into - in this case - being betrayed. And the answer is YES. It is always yes. Our subconscious Mind cannot accept “not” or “won’t” … it accepts the thought … in a positive light … and delivers. It is based on image, or picture graphics. You cannot draw a picture of someone NOT swimming. They are either swimming, or doing something else. In this same way, the subconscious Mind and Universe cannot deliver to you ... something that you DON’T want.
The more we think about war … the more war we get. Think about PEACE, and in that way we can eradicate war by manifesting peace instead.
Scripture, in Philippians 4:8 says “take every thought captive” and to “... think/meditate on things that are pure, lovely and of a good report.” There is good reason for this.
If you are focusing on betrayal for example, you are actually sending a detailed plea for more of the same. You must cease focusing on betrayal and begin focusing on loyalty and integrity in order to receive it.
Albert Einstein said: “The definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over again, but expecting different results.”
Don’t like where you are? Don’t like the ways things are? Then change your thinking.
Dr. Wayne Dyer said “Change The Way You Look At Things And The Things You Look At Change”.
If we truly grasp the mechanics of creation, then we will maintain our focus on GOOD things. Focusing on things we deem as evil/bad will attract more of it to us, and we will ultimately receive whatever it is that we “ask” for ... good, or un-good.
The reason that so many people focus on the negative things is because we have an ego that recognizes right and wrong, good and evil. “The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.” We must remove this wrong thinking ruler from the throne of our humanity, and let the ego be a servant to us rather than a master of us.
Just a thought ...
