Living From a Place of Surrender

“If we pay attention, we will realize that every moment around us, there is a world that we did not create that’s been there for 13.8 billion years, and there’s trillions of cells in your body that are doing what they’re supposed to do, and all of nature, everything.

You wake up and you realize, “I’m not doing any of this. I didn’t make my body. I didn’t make my mind think. I don’t make my heart beat. I don’t make my breath breathe, etc, etc, yet I have this notion that I have to make things happen. Yet, all throughout the universe, things are happening everywhere and I’m not doing them, so why exactly am I the one that’s in charge of what’s unfolding in front of me?”

What you realize at some point is that you’re not; that the moment in front of you that’s unfolding is no different than all the zillions of other moments that aren’t in front of you that are unfolding in accordance to the laws of nature, the laws of creation.

You start to practice saying, “I don’t want to check inside of me first to see what I want and what I don’t want. I want to pay attention to what the universe is creating in front of me just like it’s creating everywhere were I’m not, and let me see how I can participate in that, be part of that instead of interfering with it with my desires and my fears.” That’s living from a place of surrender.”

~ Michael Singer


Wake up to everything that is around you.

What is the universe creating for you?

Pay attention and shift your perspective.

Let go, and live life fully.

  2. I’m going to read this several more times to soak it in. I’m either a willing participant in what’s happening or an unwilling one. . Either way, we are in the flow of what life is creating. Thanks for sharing this.

  3. Once you realize the source for the universe and yourself is same. The act of surrendering itself comes naturally without even being conscious! πŸ™‚ it doesnt remain surrendering in its literal sense.. πŸ™‚
    Bless you!

  6. Unfortunately it took me quite a chunk of my life to fully realize that I am not in charge…but better late than never, I guess. And good things will flow from that πŸ™‚
