The Line of Least Resistance

“The line of least resistance was always the most difficult line in the long-run.”
~ Peter Cheyney, English author

That doesn’t seem right. If the line is of the least resistance won’t it be the easiest? I’m not exactly sure what line the author’s talking about. I suppose it’s a sentence in a story or something.

When you write, do the words come to you easily? Like these words you’re writing now?

Not all the time. I have some entries in my chronicles that are left hanging because it just doesn’t seem that important half-way through. Like it wasn’t really going anywhere or has no purpose. As for those posts or tweets that I’ve published, they’re usually the ones that come to me–well, they come to me with the least resistance. The words just seem to flow out of me. So how can those lines be the most difficult in the long-run?

They are the most difficult in the long-run because they are usually made of The Truth. And as you know, The Truth is sometimes hard to believe because The Truth is from the soul. The soul knows no rules or regulations. And what happens to The Truth when you let it be known to everyone?

Not all will believe. Some will believe and some will find it hard to believe.

THAT is why the line of least resistance is always the most difficult in the long-run.

Letting Go & Forgiveness

8:33am

Isn’t letting go and forgiveness the same, God?

Have you been offended lately?

No, not lately. But there were a couple of people who I felt were antagonistic towards my cause about a month ago.

Do you know them?

Um…let me just say that I come in contact with them often during the week.

Alright. Do you still feel that they are antagonistic towards you in the recent days?

I’m not sure but there was an incident that happened on Friday that seems appropriate to what we’re talking about now. Letting go and forgiveness. You see, when the offense happened a month ago, it really angered my soul. There was judgement and I felt it when I was in close contact with this person. So as much as possible I try to avoid her whenever she was at the establishment I frequently patronize.

How was this person judging you?

I don’t wanna be specific coz it might bring trouble. I still have to come face to face with her. I just felt the judgement. The attitude was not friendly. Not courteous even though I am a regular face there.

Alright. I understand. So you avoided her as much as possible.

Yes.

And then what happened on Friday?

I could have avoided this person but Soul said, “Go. Face your fear.” I walked over. The heat went to my head and my heartbeat speeded up a little. I was cold and brusque. My soul was showing that it still remembered the antagonism that this person showed me a month ago.

How was this person’s reaction?

I felt coldness and brusqueness as well. But less intense this time. When my transaction was done, we did thank each other even if it was a tad curt.

Then what happened?

Then I went on my way. On the walk home, boom! I spotted something on the ground.

What was it?

A round sticker that said PAID.

What do you think it means?

You should know. You put it there.

Of course I did. Now tell Me what it means.

It means that the offense has been PAID. It means that our Souls have recognized each other’s divinity by way of our saying “Thank You” to each other.

Yes. Do you think you have forgiven this person for the antagonism shown you?

I’m not sure. I’ll see what happens when we meet up again. But I might still want to avoid this person if I can.

That is called “letting go”. Forgiveness is still on the shelf for you with this person. And since you are only in contact with this person as a business transaction, as in she is not family or a relative, there may not even be any need for formal forgiveness being exchanged. Your souls have already accepted each other’s apologies without words of forgiveness being exchanged.

Formal forgiveness? You mean spoken words? Like “I am sorry” kind of thing?

Yes. If the offense is felt only by the soul then isn’t it appropriate that only the souls forgive or let go of the offense as well? There is no need for spoken words. Your cause is The Unspoken Truth. Whatever offense is committed regarding The Unspoken Truth does not need spoken words because it is a matter of The Unspoken Truth.

Believe it or not, I think I just understood that.

Good. Let’s hope others do too.

Trust, But Verify

7:56am

Trust, but verify. What exactly do you mean, God?

Meaning of trust and verify, please.

Right. Trust–There’s like a long list of meanings in the dictionary. Twenty four of them, in fact. But this is the one that shouted at me: TO BELIEVE.

Very good. Now, how about “verify”?

Verify means “to prove the truth of, as by evidence or testimony; confirm; substantiate: Events verified his prediction. To ascertain the truth or correctness of, as by examination, research, or comparison: to verify a spelling. To act as ultimate proof or evidence of; serve to confirm.”

Repeat the quote, please.

Alright. Trust, but verify.

Expand that using the meanings that you just verified. No pun intended.

Ya right. Okay. Big breath. Here goes–To trust is to believe. But verify The Truth by evidence or testimony. Confirm it and substantiate it. Ascertain the correctness by examination, research or comparison with his prediction of events. These serve to confirm as ultimate proof and evidence. Phew! How’s that?

Well done.

So is it done?

What is done, child?

The verification?

Only time will tell, dear one.

And minds.

I beg your pardon?

Change of minds. Everyone can easily change their minds. Doubt can rear its ugly head anytime.

You are right.

Woah. Cool. God actually admitted I’m right!

If you think you are right or you wrong, you are right.

I think it’s time to go. Bye!

I Am always with You, dear one. There is no such thing as “bye” with God.

Fine. See You later then.

That’s better.
