Surrender. It seems to be a word that gets thrown around a lot. And I can’t say that I was ever very fond of it because I used to associate it with giving up. And I don’t like the idea of giving up a whole lot because it implies that I feel defeated or without strength.
But in the last few years I’ve come to discover what surrender really means. Have I been in pain? Yeah, sometimes. Have I found all the reasons why things happen the way they do? No. I’m learning that for all the awareness we may have as people walking a ‘spiritual’ path, we may never know the reasons why some things are the way they are. Sure, it can be helpful to see the blessings within our experiences, even search for them if we need to, but maybe the greatest peace comes from just accepting that life can be inexplicably mysterious and uncertain? I’m guessing that those who proclaim to have all the answers are probably the ones who….well, they are the ones who I am most weary of because they are not being REAL. How can they be when we are always learning and growing? If we knew everything I believe we wouldn’t be living as human beings!
I like to pretend sometimes that I’m completely OK with Divine Timing. But those middle of the night moments when I’m awake with a thousand thousands swirling around my worried, impatient mind tell me otherwise and I find myself having to make the very deliberate, conscious choice to Surrender my thoughts of what should be, and to trust that the situation is being taken care of for the highest good. And when I do, something GREAT always shows up as a way to remind me that all is well.
So here’s what I know: surrender doesn’t mean giving up. It just means that sometimes, ‘doing’ is not necessary and that letting go is then the only thing left if we want to find some relief. It means trusting in Divine Order and letting go of the need to control everything so that we can make room for miracles. It doesn’t mean life is without challenges but it does mean that it’s possible to find ways to deal with them and move forward as best we can. And that has got to be worth learning, hasn’t it?
What are you ready to surrender right now?’ Let’s let go, let God and let the BEST happen!
With my love, Anna
