If you don't meet resistance with resistance, it dissipates dramatically. It just softens. Try it! Next time somebody says to you, "I'm right, and you're wrong," say, "Pfftt, you're right. You are right. You're right." And mean it. In other words, don't mock them. Don't be sarcastic. "You're right." And then watch how, all of a sudden, their legs almost go right out from under them. They don't have the energy to blast you, because you just took the fuel away from the fire.

Path of least resistance always feels good. And the thing that is tricky with so many of you, you say, "Abraham, the path of least resistance makes me worry that I might end up being a door mat. If I'm not…if I don't stand up for myself, if I don't way what I want, then won't people take advantage of me?" And we say, it's not possible. When you're in alignment with the Energy of your Source, and you are always following your bliss, following your joy, following the thought that feels best, then those action paths just begin to unfold magically before you. Amazing things begin to happen. People who are watching you can hardly believe the Well-being that you are living. They want to know, "What are you doing?" And you say, "Really, I'm not doing as much as you might think. I'm just working to align myself with Well-being.
"It's more thought work with me. It's more about controlling my mood. It's more about choosing things that feel good than it is doing anything. I sort of let the doing take care of itself. Doing just sort of opens before me—obvious paths begin to unfold—where the doing is sort of a non-issue. I just find myself being swept by the current. My real work is in my moment-to-moment choosing of the thought that feels best."
