The Law of Nonresistance

The Law of Nonresistance

“Resist not evil. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.”

Nothing on earth can resist an absolutely nonresistant person.

The Chinese say that water is the most powerful element, because it is perfectly nonresis-

tant. It can wear away a rock, and sweep all before it.

Jesus Christ said: “Resist not evil,” for He knew in reality, there is no evil, therefore noth-

ing to resist. Evil has come of man’s “vain imagination,” or a belief in two powers, good

and evil.

There is an old legend, that Adam and Eve ate of “Maya the Tree of Illusion,” and saw two

powers instead of one power, God.

Therefore, evil is a false law man has made for himself, through psychoma or soul sleep.

Soul sleep means, that man’s soul has been hypnotized by the race belief (of sin, sickness

and death, etc.) which is carnal or mortal thought, and his affairs have out-pictured his il-


We have read in a preceding chapter, that man’s soul is his subconscious mind, and what-

ever he feels deeply, good or bad, is out-pictured by that faithful servant. His body and

affairs show forth what he has been picturing. The sick man has pictured sickness, the

poor man, poverty, the rich man, wealth.

People often say, “why does a little child attract illness, when it is too young even to know

what it means?”

I answer that children are sensitive and receptive to the thoughts of others about them,

and often out-picture the fears of their parents.

I heard a metaphysician once say, “If you do not run your subconscious mind yourself,

someone else will run it for you.”

Mothers often, unconsciously, attract illness and disaster to their children, by continually

holding them in thoughts of fear, and watching for symptoms.

For example: A friend asked a woman if her little girl had had the measles. She replied

promptly, “not yet!” This implied that she was expecting the illness, and, therefore, pre-

paring the way for what she did not want for herself and child.

However, the man who is centered and established in right thinking, the man who sends

out only goodwill to his fellow man, and who is without fear, cannot be touched or influ-

enced by the negative thoughts of others. In fact, he could then receive only good

thoughts, as he himself, sends forth only thoughts.

Resistance is Hell, for it places man in a “state of torment.”

A metaphysician once gave me a wonderful recipe for taking every trick in the game of

life, it is the acme of non resistance. He gave it in this way; “At one time in my life, I bap-

tized children, and of course, they had many names. Now I no longer baptize children, but

I baptize events, but I give every event the same name. If I have a failure I baptize it suc-

cess, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost!”

In this, we see the great law of transmutation, founded on nonresistance. Through his

spoken word, every failure was transmuted into success.

For example: A woman who required money, and who knew the spiritual law of opulence,

was thrown in a business-way continually, with a man who made her feel very poor. He

talked lack and limitation and she commenced to catch his poverty thoughts, so she dis-

liked him, and blamed him for her failure. She knew in order to demonstrate her supply,

she must first feel that she had received — a feeling of opulence must precede its manifes-


It dawned on her, one day, that she was resisting the situation, and seeing two powers in-

stead of one. So she blessed the man and baptized the situation “Success”! She affirmed,

“As there is only one power, God, this man is here for my good and my prosperity” (just

what he did not seem to be there for).

Soon after that she met, through this man, a woman who gave her for a service rendered,

several thousand dollars, and the man moved to a distant city, and faded harmoniously

from her life. Make the statement, “Every man is a golden link in the chain of my good,” for

all men are God in manifestation, awaiting the opportunity given by man, himself, to serve

the divine plan of his life.

“Bless your enemy, and you rob him of his ammunition.” His arrows will be transmuted

into blessings.

This law is true of nations as well as individuals. Bless a nation, send love and goodwill to

every inhabitant, and it is robbed of its power to harm.

Man can only get the right idea of nonresistance, through spiritual understanding. My stu-

dents have often said: “I don’t want to be a doormat.” I reply “when you use nonresistance

with wisdom, no one will ever be able to walk over you.”

Another example: One day I was impatiently awaiting an important telephone call. I re-

sisted every call that came in and made no outgoing calls myself, reasoning that it might

interfere with the one I was awaiting.

Instead of saying, “Divine ideas never conflict, the call will come at the right time,” leaving

it to Infinite Intelligence to arrange, I commenced to manage things myself — I made the

battle mine, not God’s and remained tense and anxious. The bell did not ring for about an

hour, and I glanced at the ‘phone and found the receiver had been off that length of time,

and the ‘phone was disconnected. My anxiety, fear and belief in interference, had brought

on a total eclipse of the telephone. Realizing what I had done, I commenced blessing the

situation at once; I baptized it “success,” and affirmed, “I cannot lose any call that be-

longs to me by divine right; I am under grace, and not under law.”

A friend rushed out to the nearest telephone, to notify the Company to reconnect.

She entered a crowded grocery, but the proprietor left his customers and attended to the

call himself. My ‘phone was connected at once, and two minutes later, I received a very

important call, and about an hour afterwards, the one I had been awaiting.

One’s ships come in over a calm sea.

So long as man resists a situation, he will have it with him. If he runs away from it, it will

run after him.

For example: I repeated this to a woman one day, and she replied, “How true that is! I was

unhappy at home, I disliked my mother, who was critical and domineering; so I ran away

and was married — but I married my mother, for my husband was exactly like my mother,

and I had the same situation to face again.” “Agree with thine adversary quickly.”

This means, agree that the adverse situation is good, be undisturbed by it, and it falls

away of its own weight. “None of these things move me,” is a wonderful affirmation.

The inharmonious situation comes from some inharmony within man himself.

When there is, in him, no emotional response to an inharmonious situation, it fades away

forever, from his pathway.

So we see man’s work is ever with himself.

People have said to me, “Give treatments to change my husband, or my brother.” I reply,

“No, I will give treatments to change you; when you change, your husband and your

brother will change.”

One of my students was in the habit of lying. I told her it was a failure method and if she

lied, she would be lied to. She replied, “I don’t care, I can’t possibly get along without ly-


One day she was speaking on the ‘phone to a man with whom she was very much in love.

She turned to me and said, “I don’t trust him, I know he’s lying to me.” I replied, “Well, you

lie yourself, so someone has to lie to you, and you may be sure it will be just the person

you want the truth from.” Some time after that, I saw her, and she said, “I’m cured of ly-


I questioned: “What cured you?”

She replied: “I have been living with a woman who lied worse than I did!”

One is often cured of his faults by seeing them in others.

Life is a mirror, and we find only ourselves reflected in our associates.

Living in the past is a failure method and a violation of spiritual law.

Jesus Christ said, “Behold, now is the accepted time.” “Now is the day of Salvation.”

Lot’s wife looked back and was turned into a pillar of salt.

The robbers of time are the past and the future. Man should bless the past, and forget it, if

it keeps him in bondage, and bless the future, knowing it has in store for him endless joys,

but live fully in the now.

For example: A woman came to me, complaining that she had no money with which to buy

Christmas gifts. She said, “Last year was so different; I had plenty of money and gave

lovely presents, and this year I have scarcely a cent.”

I replied, “You will never demonstrate money while you are pathetic and live in the past.

Live fully in the now, and get ready to give Christmas presents. Dig your ditches, and the

money will come.”

She exclaimed, “I know what to do! I will buy some tinsel twine, Christmas seals and wrap-

ping paper.” I replied, “Do that, and the presents will come and stick themselves to the

Christmas seals.”

This too, was showing financial fearlessness and faith in God, as the reasoning mind said,

“Keep every cent you have, as you are not sure you will get any more.”

She bought the seals, paper and twine, and a few days before Christmas, received a gift of

several hundred dollars. Buying the seals and twine had impressed the subconscious with

expectancy, and opened the way for the manifestation of the money. She purchased all

the presents in plenty of time.

Man must live suspended in the moment.

“Look well, therefore, to this Day! Such is the salutation of the Dawn.”

He must be spiritually alert, ever awaiting his leads, taking advantage of every opportu-


One day, I said continually (silently), “Infinite Spirit, don’t let me miss a trick,” and some-

thing very important was told to me that evening. It is most necessary to begin the day

with right words.

Make an affirmation immediately upon waking.

For example:

“Thy will be done this day! Today is a day of completion; I give thanks for this perfect day,

miracle shall follow miracle and wonders shall never cease.”

Make this a habit, and one will see wonders and miracles come into his life.

One morning I picked up a book and read, “Look with wonder at that which is before you!”

It seemed to be my message for the day, so I repeated again and again, “Look with wonder

at that which is before you.”

At about noon, a large sum of money was given me, which I had been desiring for a cer-

tain purpose.

In a following chapter, I will give affirmations that I have found most effective. However,

one should never use an affirmation unless it is absolutely satisfying and convincing to

his own consciousness, and often an affirmative is changed to suit different people.

For example: The following has brought success to many:

“I have a wonderful work, in a wonderful way, I give wonderful service, for wonderful pay!”

I gave the first two lines to one of my students, and she added the last two.

It made a most powerful statement, as there should always be perfect payment for perfect

service, and a rhyme sinks easily into the subconscious. She went about singing it aloud

and soon did receive wonderful work in a wonderful way, and gave wonderful service for

wonderful pay.

Another student, a business man, took it, and changed the word work to business.

He repeated, “I have a wonderful business, in a wonderful way, and I give wonderful serv-

ice for wonderful pay.” That afternoon he made a forty-one thousand dollar deal, though

there had been no activity in his affairs for months.

Every affirmation must be carefully worded and completely “cover the ground.”

For example: I knew a woman, who was in great need, and made a demand for work. She

received a great deal of work, but was never paid anything. She now knows to add, “won-

derful service for wonderful pay.”

It is man’s divine right to have plenty! More than enough!

“His barns should be full, and his cup should flow over!” This is God’s idea for man, and

when man breaks down the barriers of lack in his own consciousness, the Golden Age will

be his, and every righteous desire of his heart fulfilled!
