The act of surrendering can be viewed as being weak or giving up. I was thinking about this and came to the conclusion that it can be quite the opposite, matter of fact empowering. When you surrender you get closer to the true you, this can apply to so many situations in life. Surrendering comes from the heart, and operates from the present not focusing on the past. Once you are able to surrender, magical things can happen in your life. No, you are not giving up or accepting failure- by surrendering you are using your power within to overcome and give in to something that was weighing you down. When I “let it go” I gain clarity that allows a negative space to be filled with positive energy.
My husband is the master of surrendering. I recall one time he had a patient that he did a surgery on for little of nothing, it may have even been free. The procedure went fine, but the person was not happy with the outcome and decided to sue him. Many years later the same person to the dismay of the staff, came back as a patient again and my husband was so gracious and of course accepted them again as if nothing ever happened…
“Surrender is faith that the power of love can accomplish anything…even when you can not foresee the outcome.”Deepak Chopra
So my friends surrender to someone or a situation. Let me know your thoughts-I love feedback.
