Pushing Against quotes

It’s a rare person that doesn’t push back

It’s a rare person that can have something pushed at them that they don’t push back. But that is the key to living happily ever after.

No one experiences freedom until they stop pushing against others

No one experiences freedom until they stop pushing against others.

The only thing that binds you is the pushing against that which is unwanted.

And so, if a religion could just be excited about what it is, or a person within a religion could just speak with appreciation about what it is, without justifying what it is by pushing against everything else, then each religion, in all of its difference, could be just exactly what you’re reaching for.

A million people could be pushing against you

Because others cannot vibrate in your experience, they cannot affect the outcome of your experience. They can hold their opinions, but unless their opinion affects your opinion, their opinion matters not at all.

A million people could be pushing against you and it would not negatively affect you unless you push back. That million people pushing against you are affecting their millions of vibrations.

They are affecting what happens in their experience. They are affecting their point of attraction, but it does not affect you unless you push against them.

Abraham, G-2/21/98, Orlando, FL

He who angers you, conquers you.

You cannot be diminished by someone cheating you

If you decide to make someone the enemy and you’re pushing very hard against them, you don’t affect them at all, but you disconnect yourself from the Stream.

If someone cheats you, they cannot diminish your experience. They only diminish their experience.

You cannot be diminished by someone cheating you unless you get all upset about being cheated and push against them and use that as your excuse to disconnect from the Stream.

Make peace with everyone who opposes

We encourage you to make peace with everyone who opposes you and with everyone whom you oppose, not only because you cannot insist on their yielding to your perspective but because their opposing perspective is of tremendous benefit to you.

You see, because of your exposure to what you perceive as their wrong or bad or unwanted behavior or perspective—you have given birth to an improved situation. And just as they helped the problem side of the equation to come into focus, they helped the solution side of the equation to come into focus, also; and that solution waits for you in your Vortex of Creation.

Through our daily meditation process, you will come into alignment with those solutions and creations that are in your Vortex, and from inside your Vortex, you will feel appreciation for everyone who contributed to its becoming.

When you make peace with those who differ in desire and belief and behavior from your ideas of what is appropriate, you do not perpetuate what you consider to be wrong. Instead, you align with the solution side of the equation that has been waiting for you in your Vortex of Creation.

Complaining is complaining

Most people do not realize that as they continue to find things to complain about, they disallow their own physical well-being. Many do not realize that before they were complaining about an aching body or a chronic disease, they were complaining about many other things first.

It does not matter if the object of your complaint is about someone you are angry with, behavior in others that you believe is wrong, or something wrong with your own physical body. Complaining is complaining, and it disallows improvement.

You have not yet come to the end of Pushing Against

Unless you do something about your vibrational countenance, nothing can change.

Nothing long term will change, that’s certain…

Haven’t you noticed that a new disease pops up, and humanity finds the cure, only to find another disease popping up? Don’t you think it’s interesting that you don’t get to the end of those diseases?

The reason you don’t, is because you have not yet come to the end of pushing against things.

You can be problem focused without pushing against the problem

It is much more difficult for you to calibrate toward what you want once you have manifested something that you don’t want.

But the only reason for that is because you are see it, hear it, smell it, taste it, touch it-oriented, and you don’t have to be.

But once you are, you have to find some way of selectively sifting what you are seeing; or you have to be deliberate enough to look somewhere else; or you have to quiet your mind often enough that you calibrate your vibration to something other than what you’re seeing.

Those are your choices.

If you’re looking at things that you don’t like, you’re calibrating to them and you’re going to get more of them.

If you’re looking at what you don’t like and you’re looking through the eyes of source, so you’re looking for the benefit of it, not the problem of it… if instead of justifying why you feel bad you are explaining why looking here feels good - now you’re really doing some constructive, beneficial work for yourself.

That’s hard to do, we know that it is, and some subjects are easier than others. But if you will begin with the subjects that are the easiest, you’ll get better and better at this.

And meanwhile, close your eyes and quiet your mind.

And let yourself calibrate to the frequency of well-being because the more often you do that then the more often, when your eyes are open, you will see more of the things that you’re wanting to see and fewer of the things that you are not wanting to see.

You are solution oriented which means, as a human race, you’re sort of problem focused.

But we want you to know that you can be problem focused without pushing against the problem. You can be solution oriented while you’re looking at the problem - if in your solution orientation, you’re looking for positive aspects of the problem.

If you’re pushing against the problem for now, then you are calibrating to the problem. And the problem will get bigger.
