Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. ~ Corinthians 13
9 Steps: How to Surrender to Love
Embrace … the Fear of Surrender. Instead of running from fear, instead of pushing it away or shoving it down, down, down; simply embrace it, and become intimate with it. Know it inside and outside.
Practice Surrender… Each and every day, sit – if even for a minute or two or maybe three – and practice letting go of the hundreds, maybe even thousands of fears that we have individually and collectively. Fear of not being good enough, not doing enough, being less than, fear of success and failure, fear of losing it all – whatever fears you have, practice surrendering to love.
Imagine … Place all your fears in a pink bubble and allow them to simply fly high into the sky, into the stratosphere and watch them dissipate and disappear.
Clear the Space … As the bubbles of fear go up, up, up know that you are clearing a space for true transformation; a space for all the gifts of the Universe, of God to be delivered to you.
Recognize …. That a burning, indestructible core of life lives within you; the light of love. Recognize fully that God is Love and Love is God.
Be Fully Present … Be one with the moment of recognition, one with the everlasting core of inner light and love.
Be the Bodhisattva … There you are, present, no longer trying to control or manipulate; no longer protecting and defending yourself from the slings and arrows of judgment and criticism. Simply surrender each moment to the next.
Love … allow love to flow through you and then out; streaming out.
Surrender … to Love. When you surrender to your own heart, you are surrendering to the veiled power of God. You are surrendering to love. God is love. Love is the interconnected force of the universe that unites us.
Surrender to Love …. NOT the icing!
