Somewhere between trying to control life and slipping into defeated inaction, lies a surrender which also allows right action in the moment. When you say you need someone to behave a certain way or if you say you need your business to improve or even if say you need to surrender, you reflect your preferences, not current reality. You need what you have and have what you need in every moment.
The payoff from surrendering won’t come from a defeated resignation but rather stepping back into your own power, the power to influence your experience and resultant outcomes. When you try to override the mystery of life, the universe, God, or whatever you call “what’s bigger than I am,” you waste energy you could otherwise direct toward what you actually can influence. Tapping this efficiency brings relief because you can relax into your own abilities rather than feeling inadequate and overwhelmed. Notice how life gets easier, even effortless, when you effort less.
What if you just can’t find a way to stop trying to engineer your life? Surrender to your non-surrender. Accept your tendency to want to control what you experience and remember your inability to surrender wants to teach you lessons about your life. Relief comes swiftly when you drop into trusting what brought you into this world in the first place. Honor yourself and your present experience and know everything evolves toward the highest good, regardless of how unfair or illogical life may seem.
For Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ) Japanese acupressure self-helps, apply Safety Energy Lock (SEL) 12 to yield to “Thy Will, Not My Will.” Safety Energy Lock 2 invites expansion into life, harmonizing the contraction of control. Use Organ Function Heart and Small Intestine self-helps to relieve dictatorial thoughts and “trying to.” I recommend holding each self-help for thirty-six out-breaths and in-breaths or until you feel “done.”
When does surrender seem easy? Impossible?
