The two…‘Extremes’ are alike…


                         Between Resistance and Non-Resistance
        It appears that in matters the two extremes are alike…Also; the extreme positive and the extreme negative are similar. As a matter of fact, when the vibration of light are too slow, we can’t see them, nor do we see them when they are too rapid.

        Similar condition happens with sound, when it’s very low in pitch we can’t here, when to very high we do not here it either…

        Likely, the human nature expresses the difference between resistance and non-resistance at their extremes also seems to be…

        However, there are some who does not resist because they are weak and cannot, not because they will not!
        On the other hand, those who knows that they can strike an irresistible blow if likes, yet does not strike willingly!

        Thus, one who from weakness resists not commit a sin, and as such cannot receive any benefits from non-resistance, while the other would commit a sin by offering resistance…

        Our history speaks many great achievers (without mentioning a specific name) has gave up there power of resistance and renounced their position.
        That is true renunciation, but there cannot be any question of renunciation in the case others who have nothing to commit…

        So we must be careful about what we really mean when we speak of non-resistance and ideal relevance.
        Importantly, we must first take care to understand whether we have the power of resistance or not. Then having the power, if we renounce it and do not resist, we are doing a great act of compassion.

        But if we cannot resist and yet, at the same time, try to deceive ourselves into the belief that we are actuated by motives of the love, we are doing the exact opposite.

        Therefore, we must stand up and fight! Such is the central idea of practical living. A person who understands that the highest ideal is non-resistance, and also knows that this non-resistance is the manifestation of power in actual possession. And also what is called the resisting of evil or odds is but a step on the way towards the manifestation of the power, namely non-resistance…

        Before reaching this ideal, we should work, fight & strike straight from the solder. Then only having gained the power of resistance, will non-resistance be a virtue.

        As such, inactivity should be avoided by all means. Activity always means resistance. Thus, resist all evils, whether it is mental or physical. It is only when we succeeded in resisting, and then calmness will appear.

        When we plunge into the world, after a time when suffered and enjoyed all that is in it, renunciation will come and calmness…

        Until we fulfilled the desire and have passed through that activity, it is rather impossible to come to the state of calmness, serenity and self surrender…

        These ideas have been around for thousands of years…

        Thanks!
