Surrender is not “giving up.” It’s going all in. It’s removing all fear of merging with the infinite chaos of life. It’s aligning your will with that of the Universe/God/Love.
It’s not resiliency, as that implies some sort of struggle you went through and overcame. Surrender transcends struggle.
When you’ve surrendered—i.e., handed everything over to the Universe with not hope but faith—faith that you’ll be OK and everything is working in your favor—what can touch you? What can affect you? What can break you? Everything becomes so small.
You can take my home
You can take my health
You can take my partner
my mind . . .
But you can’t take my peace.
You can’t take my joy.
You can’t take that thing in me that is indestructible.
