“To give up our attachments and disconnect from our desires(I’m not saying desires are bad, in fact, I’m all for them; it’s our attachment to them that keeps us stuck and frustrated) to let go of our stories, and our pain, and our projections of what we think life out to be, is a relief.
Surrender is a choice. It’s a decision you make to release the interior garbage without expecting anything in return. You just let it go so you’re not bogged down by it anymore.
These troubles you’ve been carrying around, longer have to be your troubles. You can release them. In the beginning, after you decide to do this, you mind will kick in with its Emergency Alert System. This is your Ego fighting for its life, urging you to hold tight, keep working, try harder, and stay in control. It’s worried that if you surrender, you will lose sight of who you are, your ideas and drive, and desire. If you release your anxiety and worry, your Ego will say, it means you don’t care enough. This is hogwash. Surrender actually makes room for more positive action. It leaves you free from the weights of worry so you can do something proactive.”
