What’s Behind All the Resistance?

Reading Time: 12 minutes

One of my favorite things about the Pathwork teachings is how they illuminate problems from many different angles. This is incredibly insightful, yet it can also make things seem complicated. But the reality is, people are complicated. And therefore the solutions to our bigger problems are seldom simple. With that in mind, let’s look at resistance, and consider it from a few different perspectives.


It’s a Jungle In There: Hacking Our Way Around a Spiritual Path

Reading Time: 7 minutes

In our psyche, we are constantly building forms by way of our behaviors and actions, our thoughts and feelings. So in every typical human soul, there will be a jungle. That doesn’t mean we’re bad people. It merely means we’re full of confusion, error and lack of awareness.

This jungle analogy isn’t just an analogy. These forms do, in fact, exist in our psyche. And when we set off on our spiritual path, we will need to find our way through such difficulties. If we don’t understand what’s going on, this can be very discouraging. Here’s what’s happening.

“Here is a room full of people, and not one person is completely happy. There is not one person who would not want some kind of change…You may feel an unhappiness, unrest, disharmony, fear, insecurity, loneliness, yearning. All of you, my friends, including those who will read these words, have the power to change this if you want to.” – The Pathwork® Guide


Minding the Gap: What Stops Us From Being Happy?

Reading Time: 7 minutes

For many, there’s a gap between what we say we want in life and what we’re actually getting out of life. Why is there this gap? And really, why bother trying to close the gap if, in the end, it seems like darkness will keep winning anyways?

It may be helpful to realize that, no, darkness can’t win in the long run. The reason is simply this: the greater our darkness, or negativity, the lower our awareness. In other words, opting to remain in the dark about our own negativity closes off our ability to perceive what’s going on in and around us. (Part 1 of 3)


Getting to Know Ourself: Where is Untruth Hiding?

Reading Time: 8 minutes

When there is a disturbance in our life, we must find the root cause of the problem. Because the source of our disharmonies always originates within us. If this weren’t true, we would have to fix the outer world in order to find peace. And changing the outside world is beyond our control.

The good news is that we have it within our power to resolve all the problems in our world by looking within. The bigger problem is that we can’t see what we’ve been hiding. (Part 2 of 3)
