Surrender, if you wish to conquer

Yes, this statement is probably a prototype for a paradox. But that is what spirituality is all about: truths disguised as mind-squeezing paradoxes. If you wish to take charge of your life, you'd better surrender control. Why? Because there are forces operating in dimensions different than yours, which can see things in a broader perspective. Your ego is like a stubborn kid, which likes to control everything, and then sit down to cry when things don't work out. But your ego usually fails to understand that the higher forces want nothing but your own good. The moment you surrender control to the spirits and just "let go", the stalling airplane of your life starts to regain poise.

Dr. Joe Vitale puts it like this in "Spiritual Marketing":

"What I discovered was that we have at least two distinct beings within us, not personalities so much as aspects of our mind. Gallwey called it Self One and Self Two. Self One can be likened to your ego, the part of you that wants to control. Self Two can be likened to the inner master within you, the part of you that is connected to all things. The job of Self One is to select what you want and let go. The job of Self Two is to bring it to you. Gallwey learned that when people learned to let go and trust, they got what they wanted more often than not, and it came much easier than if they fought for it."

John Harricharan presents a similar notion in "When You Can Walk on Water, Take The Boat":

"Why struggle? A seasoned swimmer does not struggle against the water. He flows with it, using it as a means of reaching his goal. Don't struggle, just follow the flow. Let the river of life carry you."

In "Morning Has Been All Night Coming", Harricharan says:

"That's the secret to solving problems. Remove your focus, your concentration, and the matter is free to fix itself. The result is sometimes astonishing." [How much I love to quote other writers! **wink**]

By the way, if that stubborn child called your "ego" is not comfortable with the word "surrender", try substituting the word with "delegate". That should calm down the unhappy kid.

So, when you surrender (or delegate) control to the forces unseen, not just are things taken care of more efficiently, but you feel freer, and more relaxed too. Living passionately in the present moment is essential for you to realize your powers as a human being. And that can only be accomplished when you are free of all worries. Yes, life always has some challenges for you to overcome, but that should not be an excuse for not enjoying the bounties of life. Looking at the bigger picture, it is more important to conquer life as a whole than fretting over relatively meager issues such as paying the bills. Let the unseen forces of the world do you a couple of favors; they actually look forward to it. And while you are at it, I assure you, and wish you, a rich, fulfilled and happy life.

Again, to quote the great John Harricharan,

"People are so busy trying to make a living that they have no time to make a life."

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
