To see things in the seed, that is genius. ~Lao Tzu
We avoid the things that we’re afraid of because we think there will be dire consequences if we confront them. But the truly dire consequences in our lives come from avoiding things that we need to learn about or discover.
Right when you are about to make a major shift, your ego will step in and start pulling out all the stops including feeding and stroking all of the parts of you that are looking for comfort in a field of unknown, as well as tearing you down so you feel incapable of doing the new. When this happens, you know you are close to making the change. Keep believing more than ever, loving yourself more than ever, and feeling as if the change has already taken place and that the voices are merely remnants of an old you that no longer serves, but have been instrumental in getting you to this point. Acknowledge, understand, and lovingly release, but don’t get stuck in the stories of fear. ~Tania Marie
The creative process is a process of surrender, not control. ~Julia Cameron
The word “surrender” is often interpreted as giving up, as weakness, as admitting defeat. Although this is one way to use the word, we will use it in a different way. Surrendering means letting go of your resistance to the total openness of who you are. It means giving up the tension of the little vortex you believe yourself to be and realizing the deep power of the ocean you truly are. It means to open with no boundaries, emotional or physical, so you ease wide beyond any limiting sense of self you might have. ~David Deida
Surrender is faith that the power of Love can accomplish anything even when you cannot forsee the outcome. ~Deepak Chopra
