Surrender VS Control
by Cynthia Sue Larson
September 5, 2000

I recently got a long letter from someone who wanted to know if it makes a difference to "go with the flow" and surrender one's will to the universal spirit force, or to willfully and intentionally create what one desires. This letter said:

From my perspective, surrender is about feeling one's eternal spiritual nature, and recognizing the blessing it is to be alive here in physical form right now.

Surrender is the deepest form of acceptance... of acknowledging that there are some things we can't force to change, and being at peace with that.

Surrender is one part of the human experience, which is balanced by our desire to control. Both are necessary for our survival, and just like the Chinese symbols of yin and yang, both must be in balance for our life to feel harmonious and whole.
