Mastery of life is an incredible space to be in.
Now, that’s interesting how I said that, right? Most of us consider mastery to be a destination. Like you study and do all sorts of things to become a master, and then you’re there and… that’s it. Done.
mastery is a beginning
Mastery is just the beginning. Ask any master.
Mastery, in terms of life, comes when you can successfully say that you know how to truly surrender to the rhythm and the flow of life.
what say you?
Now there are some that will say, yes to this concept. And there will be some who have experienced this and from there, they will agree.
Not many of us truly know what it is to surrender to life. I thought I did once, and then hit a bottom and I had a whole different experience of surrender. On the other side of that experience, I realized I knew diddly about surrender before that.
I would have been a person to have stood on the ground that I knew what surrender was. But now, I know better.
how do you truly know surrender?
If you’re willing to lose everything you have – really, not in concept – and it not matter one iota, then you know what it is to truly surrender to a power you cannot control. And that is a beautiful thing.
Some of you have just thrown up in your mouth at the idea of relinquishing control at that level. Some of you are about to close this website because you have just lost all interest in reading further. Losing all control? Have I lost my mind?!?!!
What is true surrender to life?
A WILLINGNESS to be supported WHOLLY by the Universe.
SUPPORTED WHOLLY BY THE UNIVERSE means you’ve got to believe that there’s a Universe out there that has your back. It also means that when you’ve allowed yourself to be supported wholly by that force greater than you that wholly has your back, you’ve also relinquished all control you professed to ever have in life. This means relinquishing control even when you think you know better.
No control. None.
Some of you think that sounds batty. Some of you may be downright indignant right about now (what does that prove?, you might be thinking).
I know about thinking I know better. I know about thinking I’ve got to “figure life out.” I know about control and not being willing to relinquish any of it.
Been there. Felt safe there. Designed the t-shirt. Sold it to everyone around me.
Control is overrated. Surrender is the way.
Want real joy in your life? This is where it’s all made possible.
Want bliss is huge doses? This is what is required to get there.
Stop thinking you know all of it. You don’t. You never will. And that’s okay. In fact, that’s wonderful. In fact, that is where you will recover your wonder in life. And in wonder lies joy.
how do I get there, you say?
What tidbit of control could you relinquish today to feel a wee bit lighter?
What control could you see you’d actually be better off without?
What if your success could be based not on your accomplishments, but on how many times you were present in a day? What if that success led you to everything else you ever wanted? It could happen, you know.
My success is wholly based on how wonderful it feels to know that my life is being guided, in every moment, by the Universe – what I also call Source. And I am wholly a part of the Universe. I am not separate from it. This is my source.
As I expand, so too does the Universe. It does not expand separate from all of its inhabitants. It and its inhabitants expand mutually.
And as we expand, our visions expand, our creativity expands, our lives expand, our beingness expands and who we are expands.
Okay, what one thing could you do today to let go of control and feel lighter in your world? What one thing could you give up controlling and begin to see your load in life lessen?
Let go of that one thing and see how you fare for an entire day, an entire week… okay, okay, an entire two days. (wink, smile)
