Surrender Isn’t Losing
Surrendering to what is
Will gain you the trust
Of the divinely penetrated world,
The world that has no separation
Between divinity and physical.
-Barbara Brennan from “Trust” – Seeds of the Spirit
Poor humans we are, trying to dominate Nature with our intellect. As I write this, Hurricane Matthew is boiling up a powerful punch in the Caribbean. Having seen the effects of Hurricane Charley in Florida (snapped giant oaks like twigs and took the roof off my house using solar panels as wind sails), I deeply respect these exhalations of Mother Nature. Mother is angry in the Caribbean.
In every happening, even wicked storms, is a rebalancing of forces, corrections that must occur as the Earth rights itself. The San Andreas Fault in California WILL make a correction at some point. Why not surrender now and call those areas “No Build Zones?”
Why doesn’t Donald Trump just say he has no idea what he’s talking about? Wouldn’t we all breathe a sigh of relief? I did when Hillary Clinton said, regarding those blasted emails, “I made a mistake.” That was surrender, albeit a little late in the game.
In the long run, it’s better to surrender in humility than to fight what we can’t change. The ego doesn’t like that plan, but the soul would rather ride the wave than swim against it.
I vote for the soul. How about you?
With love, Rosanne
