The beautiful quote from Eckhart Tolle inspired my article this week:
“Don’t look for peace. Don’t look for any other state than the one you are in now; otherwise, you will set up inner conflict and unconscious resistance. Forgive yourself for not being at peace. The moment you completely accept your non-peace, your non-peace becomes transmuted into peace. Anything you accept fully will get you there, will take you into peace. This is the miracle of surrender.”
― Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now
One of the concepts I love to share when I teach is; to learn let go of our personal egoic state or often our; ‘pushing against the river’ way of moving through life. Even with the doors slamming shut around us we tend to push and try harder.
To surrender to the flow of life is a more peaceful route to take. I truly believe that when things do not work out there is something better just around the corner. There just has to be. When we place our faith and trust in divine guidance and surrender a peaceful calm befalls us. We can let go and let God. (or whichever term use like to use for a higher power)
we let go of the map…to see where our curiosity might take us.
To surrender means to let go of the control – of how we want things to be. Often in our control of people, our kids, home or office spaces – what we are really doing is trying to feel safe. And that’s a normal reaction in a world that feels unsafe. Or perhaps we grew up in an unsafe environment. We can now see that control is rooted in fear.
It can be hard to believe that we are already safe – safe in the arms of the Universe that wants the best for us. Truly! We learn to build our trust and faith over time. When we begin to see the positive results of our faith, things just get better and better.
What do we do?
Surrender to the flow of life; we let ourselves be guided. Get out of our heads and into our hearts more of the time. Surrender to a place of trust even when things look terrible. I always think of the Star Wars movies – the light always wins!
