If you see the world as a war zone, surrendering will typically create a sense of loss and failure in you. All bets are off when we’re living to avoid defeat and shame will always invite his little sister, misery. Why would you surrender in something you could still jujitsu yourself out of?
However, if you see the world as a symphony, surrendering will create a sense of openness and possibility in you. You’re now surrendering to the flow of what’s good and true and everything here becomes much lighter and much brighter.
Surrender. Step into it don’t fight it.
