Surrender

surrender_balloonDefinition – to cease resistance.

I have been contemplating surrender for several days now.  Every time I feel like I am ready to surrender I pause.  I pause because surrender always meant giving my power away to some nameless, faceless being.  Don’t get me wrong.  I am a believer in a power greater than myself.  But the idea of surrendering to that power is something I find myself reluctant to do.

After many nights of reflecting on the word, I realized I don’t need to surrender to some being.  I just need to surrender.  It’s the act of surrender that is important here and not the who or what I am surrendering to.

As I write this I can feel my body and mind easing into surrender.  I know this is not a one time deal.  It is a practice just like anything else I want to commit to in my life.

How do you feel about surrender?
