Resistance Is Futile

Posted on: May 12, 2017

This is an expression used as a call to surrender in the face of inevitable defeat. It is also popularly known in the Star Trek series as a message from the Borg to assimilate with their species. However, I use the term here to describe mental, emotional, and spiritual surrender to the universe. This surrender is a powerful way of exercising “resistance.” It is a way of opposing that which is controlling and constraining.

To resist then is to let go, be in the moment, and stay in the moment. It involves being fully present and aware that the moment will pass. Every moment passes. There is no moment that does not pass. We are continuously moving through the eternal flow of time and space.

As long as we remain present and let go, the perceived obstacles melt away. This is because everything is fluid. When we focus on an obstacle and become attached to the obstacle, it does not appear to move. However, when we let go and do not become attached to the obstacle, it eventually dissolves.

Obstacles are illusions. They are put in our way to distract us. And distractions impede our progress. Breathe and let go. Resistance is futile.
