When we direct love into the person or situation, we apply the lubrication of Grace and remove all friction, for there is no friction in Love and Unity. Resistance exists only in Ego and Separation. In ego, we are tied to our enemies. In love, we gracefully release them.
When we detach emotionally, we disengage our ego. When we send love into the forces against us, we disengage their energy, and remove their power over us.
Doing this will help you feel better too. By releasing your emotions and sending love, you detach yourself from the situation. When you are detached from something, you are not energetically connected. This means that the adversary cannot drain your energy or manipulate you.
