Acceptance and Surrender

‘Surrender is the simple but profound wisdom of yielding to rather than opposing the flow of life.’

Eckhart Tolle

Choose to experience the present moment no matter how you are feeling about it. Acceptance is one of the first steps needed to be taken in order for healing of any conflict you may feel.

Acceptance is the removal of any judgment you may have about a situation. Whether you consider it a positive or negative experience is of no importance when you are choosing to surrender. To choose to relinquish judgment allows healing energy to move freely through you without resistance and you will see this reflected through your future experiences.

Choosing to make decisions in a state of surrender will always bring more positive outcomes than if you were to react out of anger or frustration for instance.
Stepping back for a moment allows you to act proactively rather than reactively.
From a state of surrender you are able to see a situation differently and therefore make decisions that are more in alignment with your true self as you have chosen to listen to your inner guidance in that moment.

When we feel we are in conflict it is usually because we are trying to protect something. By remembering that what is real cannot be destroyed and does not need protecting you may find it easier to enter a state of surrender. This is something to remember when you are in conflict with others. Ask yourself if there is something they may be trying to protect or is there something you are trying to protect. It is a perfect place to start looking for a resolution.

Tolle explains;

‘It is the consciousness at this moment that is the main determinant of what kind of future you will experience, so to surrender is the most important thing you can do to bring about positive change.’

All creation of future experience starts in the present moment and you get to decide right now how you will experience your life in the future.

Please enjoy Tolle reading more about acceptance and surrender from his book ‘Stillness Speaks’.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and sharing your thoughts on "Think and Grow Rich". It brought me to this post of yours, which is something I needed to read. I think you will understand if you read my latest post, "Starting Over." Isn't it awesome how the Universe will bring you just what you need?

Love & Blessings,

Stillnes Speaks is an amazing book. The cupcakes of wisdom that I have enjoyed from him remain on the tastebuds of my mind. If we live in the present our life is so much more delicious. There is no reality in fear or worry for those emotions cannot live in the present. They take energy from the past and the future to survive. Thank you for the reiminders. Blessings, Sherry
