War

* * *

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….

.

It is to relinquish inner resistance to what is.

The wisdom of surrender
