Resisting the change

Being comfortable with what is...is not easy
When watching Star Trek I 've always loved the mantra of the Borg, "resistance is futile".
The fact is change is the only constant in the universe and yes resistance is futile...
I suppose it's only natural to bristle at change, and myself , I do too.
We really want things to remain the same , and yet all around us are constant reminders that things change, every minute and every second.
Our mind's construct for what is our reality , what we take for granted as constant and non-changing is circumstantial at best and due to our attachments they cloud and tint the situation like rose-coloured glasses.
Recently I  read a very erudite paper on physics, string theory and theoretical physics and I really like this Einstein quote :
"As far as mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain, as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality"
We try very hard to describe our natual world, and while we are good at it, as far as what we can see and perceive but we shouldn't confuse what we can decribe with what we can understand.

  1. Resistance creates suffering...some math for you..Pain x Resistance = Suffering. Using a 0-10 scale for pain (which can be what is)and Pain is a 5...and your resist at a 5...your suffering is a 25...way off the scale. Make resistance zero and you have zero suffering...reality/pain is just as it is...resist and the wheel turns.
