In the current environment it is very easy to go into resistance. In electrical terms, Resistance is a measure of the opposition to current flow.
Resistance at present is to the standstill being caused by governments response to Covid-19. No doubt a life saving measure even if it is only a delaying tactic to the inevitable but resistance is palpable both energetically and through people’s social actions to want to be together.
Interestingly, resistance is measured in OHMS and symbolised by the Greek letter Omega. Omega is the last letter of the Greek alphabet. Most of the time in English, omega is used as a symbol of the last, best, or final nature of something.
This raises the question, Is our resistance to the final nature of something? It certainly feels like a death of sorts, to life as we have known and assumed it to be. Is our acceptance related to a Phoenix type rebirth out of the physical and metaphysical ashes.
Perhaps the answer lies in the spiritual Ohm, which is all about sacred threes. Most faiths have trinities in their roots and Hinduism, where om was born, is no different. Even though it’s usually pronounced seamlessly so it rhymes with “home,” om is made up of three syllables: A, U, and M, or, phonetically, “aaah,” “oooh,” and “mmm.” Experts say these syllables can represent a slew of trios, including: the heavens, earth, and the underworld; the Hindu gods Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva (aka creator god, sustainer god, and destroyer god); and the waking, dreaming, and dreamless states — “to represent all of consciousness,” says Yoganand.
It seems that we are in the threefold Ohm of destroyer, sustainer and creator. In accepting our current situation, or consenting to receive or undertake what is on offer, instead of resisting are we are being called to a higher consciousness so that can create new sustainable pathways?
Acceptance does not mean not being discerning and taking appropriate action in the face of danger but by allowing the changes to flow through us hopefully we can build a different kind of resistance, one that will inspire future generations.
