Surrendering isn’t about giving up. Nor is it about laying back and going unconscious. It’s about paying attention in a deeper way. In surrendering we find the piece of the story that is ours to embody, to carry, to share and bring to life. In surrendering we find our way of weaving or quilt-making- which is to say, our way of participating in the Sacred Wholeness that is what we are. ~Oriah Mountain Dreamer
there may never be a mystery so enlightened as the one of surrender…..how to let go and be deeply engaged?
inquiry for today~ experiment with star gazing……allow space and make sure to be warm and comfortable…..
When we are alone on a starlit night, when by chance we see the migrating birds in autumn descending on a grove of junipers to rest and eat; when we see children in a moment when they are really children, when we know love in our own hearts; or when, like the Japanese poet, Basho, we hear an old frog land in a quiet pond with a solitary splash – at such times the awakening, the turning inside out of all values, the “newness,” the emptiness and the purity of vision that make themselves evident, all these provide a glimpse of the cosmic dance. ~Thomas Merton
