“All struggles and unhappiness arise out of your rejection of what life brings. Instead of enjoying the life you already have, you seek what your beliefs and conditionings dictate. If you were prepared to accept what life gives you and able to watch your ego-mind from moment to moment, there would not even be a question of needing to surrender. In the absence of the ego-mind, you would already be in surrender.
What prevents us from surrendering is our need to always be right and in control. When we are afraid to let go of our beliefs and attachments to people and things we prevent ourselves from receiving what life abundantly showers upon us with all of its creation. It’s impossible to accept and surrender to life when you negate it through fear and insecurity. Your fear of the unknown and your worries of survival turn your life into a struggle that inevitably jeopardizes your own health and happiness.
You bring peace to yourself, others, and the world when you let go of your struggling ego-mind and gracefully accept what life offers you. By surrendering to what is you free your energy of the pain and suffering that your desires, beliefs, and conditionings create and discover many new and exciting things about yourself, others, and the universe.”
Eliza Mada Dalian, in “In Search of the Miraculous”
