There is freedom in surrender.

There is freedom in surrender.

The spiritual path is riddled with points of surrender.  Surrender into the vast energies beyond our sense perceptions, surrender to the idea that we don’t have all the answers, that we don’t control anything outside of ourselves, that our bodies hold on to stagnant memories, that giving up anger, hatred and resentment is not a function of the mind but of the heart…. and oh so many more points of surrender.  It feels uncomfortable at first, like we are giving up control and will power, but it eventually reveals itself more and more as freedom. 

In my last post I spoke about some transformations I’ve gone through recently and how my heart has opened up and freed itself from certain negative patterns.  Surrender has been the very thing that has allowed me to soften into my heart space.


The bumpy ride called transformation. Softening into our hearts.

Have you felt the whirlwind that’s been stirring things up these last few months? 

Its been impossible not to.  We are all being asked to transform on some level, whether we like it or not, because the inner world of the individual must be reformed before the broken structures of society can be reformed.  All I know is that I have never before retreated so deeply into myself, and my heart has opened up in so many profound ways because of it.  I’ve surrendered and softened into myself.
