Surrender is a Good Thing…
“Surrender is the simple but profound wisdom of yielding to rather than opposing the flow of life.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
Surrender was never an option before. When I was younger, I somehow got the impression that I was expected to persist to the end, regardless of how futile my efforts appeared to be. The word ‘surrender’ had a negative connotation to me and it was not often used in my vocabulary.
There came a time, however, when life became so difficult that I finally had to throw my hands up in the air and shout “I GIVE UP”! My way of living was just not working. As I look back on it all now, I can see where I was opposing every circumstance and situation in my life rather than yielding to it. This definition from Eckhart Tolle makes perfect sense to me now.
How do you handle the flow of life? Can you see where surrender might help you if it was recognized as yielding to the flow of life? All I can do is share my experience with you here. Once I became willing to surrender by yielding to the flow of life, things turned around for me. It took some time, but it worked and it was worth the effort.
