It’s always a privilege to be asked to train the nation!
So while I was preparing, I got out a few of my favourite books to include some key quotes.
The one that hit home today was from Marrianne Williamson’s ‘Return to Love’… It’s from her chapter on Surrender, where she talks about how we have created a ‘fight mentality’.. how we are all fighting for something – a job, money, relationship, to lose weight, etc etc.
It’s true… I feel it. A battle in my head… a fight to be happier, better, back to normal. A fight to make sure everyone is happy, on time, to please everyone!
Her words are soothing.. allow yourself ‘mental surrender’. Surrender, I have always seen as showing signs of giving up.. as weak. But she says this is not so.
“When we stop trying to control events, they fall into a natural order, an order that works.”
Those words bring just so much relief. Allow myself to let go. Stop the fight and relinquish events to the universe.
In fact she says just that…
“To relax, to feel the love in your heart and keep to that as your focus in every situation – that is the meaning of spiritual surrender……..Something amazing happens when we surrender and just love. We melt into another world, a realm of power already within us. The world changes when we change. The world softens when we soften. The world loves us when we choose to love the world”…
I don’t think I can add to that. I just need to do it.
