I want to write about a concept that has been on my mind a lot lately; I call it – The Surrender Point.
The Surrender Point – is the point at which we try and try and try and nothing we “do” seems to work. Maybe we get so impatient, so fed up, so frustrated that we just want to give up and/or let go. OR perhaps we have been in an addictive pattern and life has gotten so unmanageable that we don’t know what to do.
The Surrender Point is a time in our lives when we get sick and tired of letting our ego and fears run the show; we don’t know what to do and we just want to give up.
The Surrender Point isn’t just a one-time thing; we can have many Surrender Point moments in a year even. But, I believe there is Grace in Surrender Point moments. The Grace is this…
Compared to Uni-versal Wisdom, that is the wisdom of the higher order of The Uni-verse, our fears, insecurities and ego have small minded, unaligned agendas. Unaligned? Yes, we cannot think two thoughts at once. We cannot simultaneously think a thought of love and a thought of fear. And as a wise man once said, “Love is what we’re born with, fear is what we learn here.”
So flow with me on this thought for a moment. When we let thoughts of fear dominate our lives, we step out of Love and are no longer in alignment with our Highest Potential. So, like a drop of water separated from the ocean, we separate unknowingly from the Love that sustains us. As a result, our lives, our passion and our hearts begin to become even more consumed with fear. This cycle continues until we hit a Surrender Point. We hit a Surrender Point because the pain of continuing in our fearful habit is finally worse than the pain of changing, facing ourselves and realigning with Love.
When we reach a Surrender Point, it should be celebrated. It means that we have finally let go of a lower and unaligned way of living and given in to a higher order of Life. The wisdom and value in the Surrender Point is that we SURRENDER our fear and ask to be filled and aligned with Love in that moment.
We step away from our past habits and addictions that have distracted ourselves from ourselves and instead decide to face our shadow. Not with fear, but with Love.
Surrender Points are painful in the moment, but in the long run we will see them as some of the greatest moments of our lives.
Are there any habits or addictions that you have that you want to give up? How much longer do you want to subtly suffer knowing that you are participating in an unhealthy and unloving habit? How much more pain do you want to endure before you give it up?
Do you want The Uni-verse to bring you a Surrender Point, or can you walk away now?
I’m urging us to take a deep look at our lives and see what unhealthy and unloving habits, addictions and thoughts we can let go of. Not because it’s so painful, but because we know that in doing so, we will liberate ourselves to live alongside a higher order of things.
You are capable of much more than you think you are!
