I let go my resistance to life’s natural rhythms and allow myself to be carried through change and growth.
I surrender my need to control every outcome and circumstance and allow life to unfold naturally.
I surrender to faith.
I live with trust.
I let go.
Surrendering is not giving in or giving up, it is letting life unfold in its mysterious unbridled way, accepting that some things simply can’t be controlled. When we surrender to life, we let go of our resistance – which pushes against the natural flow of things – and allow ourselves to become a part of the harmonious rhythm of the universe. When we surrender, we throw our oars in the river and let the current carry us, acknowledging that sometimes we truly do not know what is best, but having faith that something greater than us does. Surrendering is accepting the unacceptable, when there is no other choice. Surrendering is accepting the inevitable as part of life’s journey, even if we don’t really want to. Observe a leaf floating downstream, a hawk gliding on an air current, or a child going down a slide, and you are observing surrender. Let’s know when to be the leaf, the hawk, the child, and let life carry us for a while.
