Episode 135: Surrender
Today's episode is all about the future, brothers. I want to help you let go of the past and move into the new you, the real you, the you that you want to be! I will be discussing the idea of surrender, and the first point in this discussion is to remove this word's negative connotation. I want us to reposition our understanding of surrender as ceasing resistance to oneself. We all encounter the problems and fallacies of trying to be what we are not, and what we are not meant to be. When we can truly surrender to the truth, we enter a state of awareness, where we are able to seek self-knowledge and inner truth! The best way to understand this all, is through the analogy of a car. I want you to imagine that your body is the car, the passenger is your mind, and the driver is your spirit. When we listen to the mind, we are taking direction from the wrong authority. The mind is misleading, brothers, and although it wants to help us, we should be listening to the soul, the actual driver. The mind is not the enemy, it is a creative force that we can work with, it is a powerful part of you that you need to keep in context and use with purpose. I have spoken before about where this need of the mind to control comes from, and it is rooted in our past, our need for safety, and from a place of fear. Letting the mind make decisions for us leads to people-pleasing and the need for external validation, exactly what you do not want! We all experience the external pressures of the world, when what we really need is to get back to our true nature and see through to our true potential. When we surrender to this, we decondition ourselves and meet our real self. Want to know more about what I do and how I can help you?
