What Surrender Really Means

May 9, 2019
Often I find myself on a quest for more.

Do you ever find yourself craving a deeper understanding of this thing called life?

Often I find myself on a quest for more.

More knowledge.

More spiritual connection.

More intuition.

More growth.

My thirst for a deeper understanding of our journey through life and the greater part of us is insatiable.

I am learning more every single day and I still want to drink more in.

Recently I was listening to an ‘oldie but a goodie’ - A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson.

Marianne articulates her words quickly, so you must be fully present when listening to her content.

As the words poetically rolled off her tongue, a collection of them suddenly captured me in a way that caused me to switch off the audiobook and sit in deep contemplation.

She said, “Surrender means giving up attachment to results.”

Those seven little words left me reeling for more, reeling for a deeper understanding, reeling for examples of if or when I had truly surrendered in my life.

The word surrender is thrown around like a buzz word of late.

It’s almost a trend to speak the sweet sound of such a word.

And at the same time, it can be the most antagonistic word you can hear when you are in the midst of a crisis.

Surrender reveals the polar opposite of each other in an instant – at the very mention of the word and your reaction to it will give you are clear indication of which end of the pole you are choosing.

Surrender will cause you to feel one of two things:

The terror of losing control or relief.

Apply it to any crisis you’ve ever ‘survived’ and delve into this concept.

What would you have felt if you were to truly surrender and given up attachment to the results?

I explored the concept of surrendering even more and discovered something really powerful.

I realised that to truly surrender and release attachment to the results does NOT mean to become complacent.

It does NOT mean to sit around and wait for things to happen ‘to’ you.

It does NOT give you a free ticket on the lazy train.

What it DOES mean is that you continue to take consistent, aligned steps, towards what you desire, void of doubt, with the knowing that the outcome is already done.

And the best bit is you just may end up with something even better.
