Does seeking increase resistance?
"Seek and ye shall find" still holds true. What I'm talking is the subtile desperation people exhibit today. I've seen friends become irrational, self-exalted, or beat-down by the tide of resistance, which brings me to the second part of my question.
How do you tell someone not to seek?
seeking does not have to become a resistance if you enjoy the journey.that is what alot of people do not get the journey is more important then the target that you seek. that is why alot of people run after something and once they have it they are not satisfied or do not know what to do with what they have found.well this is a world based on competition so that is why they run after things thinking i need to get it first to succeed but they missed all the journey to get there.you could say that they are on the wide gate with a narrow mind set. when they should be on the narrow gate with a wide mind set.they could have achive better things and enjoy them self on the journey cooperating with people around them.
as for how to stop some people from seeking things that are destructive to them well you cannot they have free will and they are responsible of it.but you have free will also and are responsible of it. the only thing you can do is talk to them open their eyes to what you see and offer them alternative, something else to change their course toward something good.but i would suggest to not manipulate other people onless you have no other choice,and it is for good reason that outweight the responsability that you will take and you better make sure that there is no mistake.
i think that pretty much covers the question.

No I don't believe so actually because it isn't the seeking but the belief about the scarcity of what is being sought after.
As you pointed out Jesus said, "Seek and you will find." He doesn't say, "Seek and hopefully with some luck you might actually find what you are looking for."
Unfortunately most the world seems to believe the later rather than that of the former. They believe that seeking will probably take a lot of work and some luck, or even a lot of both. Because just the fact that if they have to seek for it it then must be rare and hard to find.
We need to get into the belief of, as soon as we seek we find, "Oh here it is right under my nose! Why didn't I notice it before?"

Possibly replace the definition/synonym of seek to mean that you expect "Expect and you shall find".

There is "truth" in the Picasso quote "I do not seek, I find" as indicated by blubird two ... in other words seeking implies a state of 'not yet found' which attracts a state of 'not yet found' ... it's a self perpetrating resistance ... this brings to light the "genius" of Picasso
a pure state of being, finding
