What is resistance? As Sharathji has been telling, we are supposed to grow some resistance through our practide. Resistance so that we would't get too much affected by the changing circumstances such as hot and cold, profit and loss, etc. We practice to have equanimity of mind.
And then there is this other resistance, the subtle, sneaky inner resistance against the current of life that simply makes us suffer (more). "It shouldn't be that way", "He/she/they should not have said so", "I should not feel like this". This inner resistance might manifest as actual thoughts, or perhaps uneasiness, a stiff feeling in the body. It prevents us from accepting and enjoying life, and the practice, as it comes, without criticizing.
Maybe things should be just the way they are, simply because that is how they are. So, this is something to study: Where and what kind of resistance is useful. And when is the resistance just blocking the natural flow of energy, preventing us from experiencing the path in all it's different colors and changing circumstaces.
