To offer no resistance to life is to be in a state of grace, ease, and lightness. This state is
then no longer dependent upon things being in a certain way, good or bad. It seems almost
paradoxical, yet when your inner dependency on form is gone, the general conditions of your
life, the outer forms, tend to improve greatly. Things, people, or conditions that you thought
you needed for your happiness now come to you with no struggle or effort on your part, and
you are free to enjoy and appreciate them - while they last. All those things, of course, will
still pass away, cycles will come and go, but with dependency gone there is no fear of loss
anymore. Life flows with ease.
It is the law of life that if you are kind to someone you feel happy. If you are cruel you are
unhappy. And if you hurt someone, you will be hurt back.
