Surrender Saturday!

“You have to surrender to your hair,” a hair stylist once told me when I was fretting over how the left side would curl under while the right side would flip out, making the lengths look uneven. Well, I tried to follow her advice and surrender to my hair, but I can’t really say I succeeded… Instead of surrendering, I started getting buzzcuts! (Well, that wasn’t the only reason for the buzzcuts, but that’s another story!)

Now I’m hearing a voice in my head saying similarly, “You have to surrender to your body.” After dealing with chronic health issues for years, I am feeling weary and needing to continually reset and refresh my attitude… And there isn’t a simple solution like a buzzcut for the body! But hey, at least my sense of humor is intact!

Besides surrendering to the body, every day when I sit to meditate, chant, or write, I pray to surrender my life and my work to God… And there are moments when I truly feel absolutely one hundred percent surrendered, but I haven’t yet mastered the ability to maintain that surrendered state all the time. Can you relate to this? Do you feel surrendered? Are there aspects of your life in which you would like to surrender more fully?

Years ago I was telling a friend that I was working on surrendering to God, and she said, “Well, if you have to keep working on it, then you haven’t really surrendered.” I understood her point, but how many people are capable of just completely surrendering all at once into a lasting state of surrender? It seems to me that it is an ongoing spiritual practice. What do you think?

 

“May you surrender to the Sun in your heart. ~ May the Sun in your heart shine its healing rays on everyone and everything.” ~ from the “Blessings for humility” section in my new book, Reaching for Orange: Practices, Visualizations, & Blessings to Help You Happy Up Your Life.
