Thoughts of Surrender on This Spring Equinox
How do you feel when you hear the word surrender? Does it feel passive, vulnerable, debilitating? Or does it feel freeing, gentle, empowering?
We are in a time of great undoing. Unraveling all that no longer serves us, humanity, and the planet. This time requires a deep surrender. A surrender of all we have known, all we have believed to be true, all that we believe served us well in the past.
This surrender is necessary in our collective evolution and requires each of us to commit to the personal, inward-facing work required of us.
The definition of surrender is this: cease resistance to an enemy or opponent and submit to their authority.
What have you made the enemy in your life? What are you opposed to and how is it impacting your ability to move forward? These are tough questions, and feel so important as we navigate the world at this present moment. Our deepest fears drive our actions and create enemies where there are none, put us in opposition to ideas and other people who are here to teach us.
My wish for this beautiful time of awakening is that we see the potential in the buds on the trees, feel what wants to awaken within us as the grasses come out of their dormant state. That we face the fears that are driving our actions and acting as filters for how we experience the world and how the world experiences us, and realize it doesn’t have to be so.
There is an entire world waiting for us on the other side of fear. Let’s commit the time and energy needed to do the important, self-healing work. The work that opens the door to reconnection with ourselves, each other, and all living things.
