Some things are just beyond our control.
Yes, we do create our reality, to a point.
Yes, we do have complete control over how we respond to the world around us.
Yet things happen in the world that ultimately are beyond our control to do anything about. That’s when we learn how to surrender.
Surrendering is not about giving up. It’s about understanding our place in the universe and seeing where we can do something that has an effect, and where we can’t.
That is the time we learn to develop trust or faith.
As humans, we cannot see the full implications to our own actions, let alone the actions of others or of nature. Our perception is limited, and we are not omniscient.
Learning to be okay with that helps to make our lives easier, and allows us to enjoy the ride. When we enjoy the ride, we show up from a more empowered place.
