~Thich Nhat Hanh
We are used to striving and trying so hard for things to work out the way we want them too but sometimes they dont! Therefore, can we literally just trust, surrender, let go and open our eyes to what has been put in front of us instead. If we can, Surrender instead becomes enlightened behaviour. It becomes the most beautiful soft space of acceptance. Surrender and letting go is not about giving up, handing power over, or failing, its about allowing our life to unfold and to be what it is, irrespective of our agendas or expectations. We have to be open and at the same time deeply rooted in trust. When we can relax and trust that, even though things might not be going the way we like or the way we planned, everything will turn out just the way its meant to. By embracing surrender, we get out of our own way and this is how we experience a life of real freedom. Free from our limiting self-beliefs, and negative mind talk which is basically what prevents real growth and transformation. At first, the journey into surrender can be really hard, we may question or resist it by trying to remain in control, but eventually, when we completely let go of the outcome, surrender can be the space where everything starts to shift. Surrender allows us to step into our lives ready to receive, and willing to embrace everythingthe good and the bad times with an open heart, then, who knows, life may magically open up for us
So right now, this is me! Here I am on the surrender train, I dont know where it might stop or where I am heading but I have to trust that I will keep rolling along just fine, there is so much more to see and so many different experiences to savour along the way.
I know that I want to be free and freedom comes from a space of pure, open-hearted surrender to what is.
