LMTV #96: Resistance is Futile

Remember the Borg? Remember Their Mantra?

For any fan of the TV Series Star Trek, the words Resistance is Futile are the familiar threat of the infamous Borg, those cybernetic beings who strove to assimilate all of life into their one mechanical mind. It was the Borgs’ way of demoralizing people and removing all hope, and the underlying message was

No matter what you do, no matter how hard you try to resist, we are going to win and you are going to become one of us.

The Soul Talk Guys are not here to talk about the Borg. Instead, Tommy & David turn this mantra inside-out and look at it from a number of different angles. Instead of seeing it as an omen of capitulation to an external power, David & Tommy examine it as a reminder to surrender to your own higher power.

See, whether you are a Trekkie, a Borg, a Human, or some other life form, chances are you believe what you’re doing is right. From your perspective, you intend ‘good’. You may even feel you have a purpose and mission in life to be good, to do good, and to help others. And that’s where the story begins, because many of us take up our cause for good in the way we’re taught to take up any cause:

To FIGHT for it.

That’s right! We are taught to:

  • FIGHT for justice;
  • FIGHT for liberty;
  • FIGHT for our dreams;
  • FIGHT for the cause(s) we believe in;
  • FIGHT for our country;
  • FIGHT for what’s “right”;
  • and on and on it goes.

Sounds tiring, doesn’t it? And indeed, that’s exactly what it is: exhausting! Why? Because all that fighting and resisting is a never-ending effort and struggle to push away things that we don’t want in our lives. And the real irony is that the more we resist and fight, the more those undesirable things seem to find a way to stick around. Our attempts to push things away only seem to give those things more energy and intention to continue with their objectives. And so, in a very real sense, our resistance is indeed futile.

It may not seem obvious, but resistance is actually a violation of your individual Primary Directive. You see, you are here ultimately to attract Light, Love and Goodness to the planet. However, if you engage in repelling forces like resistance and fighting, then you end up engaging energies like fear, sadness and anger—which may seem to achieve results in the short term, but in the long term actually sabotage your cause, purpose and mission. If you think about this for a moment, you can see that resistance actually goes against your very nature.

David & Tommy share with you ways that you can release your resistance, and even transform it into a form of attraction that supports and helps your cause. So, instead of fighting fire with fire (in which case your Resistance is Futile), join the Soul Talk Guys for another mind-bending journey that is sure to help you to

Live Long and Prosper!
