I – ” Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.”(Matthew 4:1 – NKJV)

II “Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.””

“Then said Jesus to it, “Get out satan (satana), for it is written, you shall worship the Lord your God, and Him alone shall you serve.”

VII – “Psychologically speaking, resistance and resolution are at opposite poles. For resistance has fundamentally to do with not being able, or willing, to deal with the negative experiences in your life. And ultimately your happiness depends a lot more on handling—then letting go of—such adversities than it does, self-protectively, denying them, or fighting against them. In addition, so does (unwittingly) holding onto their associated feelings of hurt, sorrow, anxiety, or anger.
Without consciously deciding to, you can even get “attached” to feelings you haven’t resolved. But if you become aware of the exorbitantly high costs of not acknowledging, and working through, these feelings, you’ll realize that heedlessly clinging to them hasn’t at all contributed to your welfare. Quite the opposite.
Long ago, the depth psychologist Carl Jung contended that “what you resist not only persists, but will grow in size.” And today this viewpoint is generally abbreviated to “What you resist persists,” with many kindred paradoxical variants—such as, “You always get what you resist.”
The complementary opposite of these similar expressions is another equally counter-intuitive one, which hints at the most viable solution to such a quandary. It goes: “To get what you want, want what you get.” What links these two on-the-surface almost mystifying expressions is the underlying notion that it’s wise to accept what is, if only to put yourself in the best possible position to change it—or to achieve the freedom to move past it, and on to something else. And I should stress that I’m in no way intimating that you adopt a defeatist attitude in the face of what you deem inequitable or unjust, just that your resistance doesn’t end up taking the form of resisting yourself.
In any case, this post will elaborate on what’s become a prominent topic in popular psychology, frequently identified with the title, ’The Law of Attraction’ And while I regard this supposed “universal law” as somewhat overstated (and, in its suggestions of passivity and intentionality, at times even dangerous), it nonetheless represents an essential truth that demands to be taken seriously.”
