What do you do when you don’t know what to do?
For me it’s no trivial question. It’s a question that we’ve all been brought to from time to time–me, quite often along my journey. It has even brought me to my knees, and every single time I’ve only been met with one logical answer… SURRENDER.
I’ve come to know first hand that there is no greater power than the power of surrender. In fact, it is when we do the opposite, trying to always control the outcomes of this physical life, that we suffer the greatest pain. That’s because life is made up of more than just the physical parts that we can see, touch, taste, smell, and hear. Yes, we are more than just our physical bodies. According to A Course In Miracles, we are spiritual beings having a human experience. Therefore, our true core operates in a dimension that oftentimes cannot be explained by anything physical short of a miracle.
But don’t get things twisted. To surrender doesn’t mean that we are being weak, or that we should condone poor behavior from others. It merely means that we find ourselves at a place of peace about what is, no matter what is. Once we’ve done all the good that we could do to try to help or correct it, surrender that which is beyond our own control to the DIVINE, and watch grace take over and miracles unfold.
“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.” – James 4:10
So simple, yet often so hard to rid ourselves of the ego enough to let life unfold in our own favor.
