Wisdom of Surrender

To some people, surrender may have negative connotations, implying defeat, giving up, failing to rise to the challenges of life, becoming lethargic, and so on. True surrender, however, is something entirely different. It does not mean to passively put up with whatever situation you find yourself in and to do nothing about it. Nor does it mean to cease making plans or initiating positive action.

Surrender is the simple but profound wisdom of yielding to rather than opposing the flow of life. The only place where you can experience the flow of life is the NOW, so to surrender is to accept the present moment unconditionally and without reservation.

It is to relinguish inner resistance to what "IS."

(Derived from Practising the Power of NOW - p106)
