Surrender Give up the search for something to happen and fall in love, fall intimately in love with the gift of presence in ‘what is.’ ~Tony Parsons Let yourself be made new by your willingness to drop everything you know, and float in the Unknown sea of the Heart. ~Jeannie Zandi Surrender is the inner transition from resistance to acceptance, from no to yes. ~Eckhart Tolle The best way is to simply surrender to Existence and allow it to take you wherever it takes you; it has never taken anybody into any wrong space. It always takes you back home. ~Osho It is when God appears to have abandoned us that we must abandon ourselves most wholly to God. ~Francois Fenelon Surrender. Let silence have you.

When you fully accept that you do not know, you give up struggling to find answers with the limited thinking mind. That is when the greater intelligence can operate though you. Sometimes surrender means giving up trying to understand and becoming comfortable with not knowing. ~Eckhart Tolle One act of surrender, One change of heart, One leap of faith, can change our heart forever. ~Robert Holden When you really surrender to the moment, even if it’s very unpleasant, you feel “There’s no place I’d rather be.” ~Adyashanti When one surrenders, one becomes like a valley. One becomes depth, not height. Then the whole Existence begins to pour! ~Osho We find this place of Silence through surrender, after perhaps years of struggle to dis-cover the false self. ~Bob Fergeson If you surrender to the truth that no phenomenon can ever touch, you are free. ~Gangaji Welcome it, be tender to it, whatever it is, and you grasp the angel’s hand. ~Fra Giovanni In the simple, direct experience of what is, you have an ongoing opportunity to awaken out of the trance the mind perpetuates to the radiant fullness and completeness of being. Just keep letting go and surrendering to what is. ~Stephan Bodian Whatever you fight you strengthen, and what you resist, persists. ~Eckhart Tolle I might formulate it as an affirmation of things as they are; and unconditional “yes” to that which is, without subjective protests. ~Carl Jung It is, moreover, only in the state of complete abandonment and loneliness that we experience the helpful powers of our own natures. ~C. G. Jung How can the divine Oneness be seen? In beautiful forms, breathtaking wonders, awe-inspiring miracles? The Tao is not obliged to present itself in this way. If you are willing to be lived by it, you will see it everywhere, even in the most ordinary things. ~Lao Tzu The path of the heart requires a full gesture, a degree of abandon that can be terrifying. Only then is it possible to achieve a sparkling metamorphosis. ~Carlos Castaneda Difficulties along the way are opportunities in disguise; they reflect your expectations. Facing them with surrender helps you follow a more peaceful and perceptive life. ~Carl Abbott The more you struggle to live, the less you live. Give up the notion that you must be sure of what you are doing. Instead, surrender to what is real within you, for that alone is sure. You are above everything distressing. ~Spinoza As soon as you surrender the need to understand, you do understand. ~Gangaji Complete surrender, complete nothingness, “yes” to everything. This is the greatest power. ~Irena Tweedie Something powerfully good and infinitely expansive is seeking to breathe through you, lifting your life to its highest possibility. Say yes. ~Marianne Williamson Surrender all thought, emotion, and circumstance to that which is bigger and deeper. Surrender your identity. Surrender your suffering to that which is closer than identity, deeper than suffering. Do you discover victory or defeat in this surrender? ~Gangaji Surrender the need to understand and confusion dissolves. Only clarity remains at the heart of silence. ~Leonard Jacobson In surrender, you no longer need ego defenses and false masks. You become very simple, very real. ~Eckhart Tolle People who have let go of themselves are so pure that the world cannot harm them. ~Meister Eckhart Pain is a moment of grace because we surrender into the deep space around us that is alive with consciousness, and fall into the arms of infinite Grace. ~Fred La Motte When you die of surrender, only then you will live forever. If you are put to death through surrender, There is no such thing as death for you, For you have died already. ~Persian poem Surrender is the most difficult thing in the world while you are doing it and the easiest when it is done. ~Bhai Sahib The inner reality of love means that you give all of yourself to the One until nothing remains of you for you. ~Unknown One is more likely to awaken through surrender than through seeking to waken. The effort to awaken is the effort of the ego, whereas to surrender is to give up all efforts and to place oneself in the hands of a vast force that is more powerful than any realization of nonduality. ~Mariana Caplan The journey to enlightenment involves shedding, not collecting. It’s a continual process of opening and surrender, like taking off layer after layer of clothes, until we’re completely naked with nothing to hide. But we can’t just pretend, making a big display of disrobing, then putting everything back on when no one’s looking. Our surrender has to be genuine. ~Pema Chodron Suffering is exclusively the result of attachment or resistance, it is a sign of lacking readiness to go on, to flow with life. ~Nisargadatta Maharaj Nothing is meaningful except surrendering to Love. Do it! ~Rumi Surrender is giving oneness up to the origin of one’s Being. In due course, we will know that our glory lies where we cease to exist. ~Ramana Maharshi If you surrender to the wind, you can ride it. ~Toni Morrison What’s wrong with falling apart? Why not fall apart so completely that there’s nothing left? And then keep falling apart for the rest of your life, recognising yourself as the wide open space of awareness that cannot fall apart, but deeply allows all falling apart to happen? And then can you really call it ‘falling apart’ at all? Thoroughly Fallen Apart, thoroughly ONE. ~Jeff Foster Spiritual maturity is being ready to let go of everything. Giving is a first step, but real giving-up is the insight that there’s nothing to be given up, since nothing is your property. ~Nisargadatta Maharaj If you leave the pool you have dug for yourself and go out into the river of life then life has an astonishing way of taking care of you, because then there is no taking care on your part. ~Jiddu Krishnamurti We tried reasoning our way to Him: it did not work; but the moment we gave up, no obstacle remained. ~Hakim Sanai You have to sit with your life and feel how you hold it, and be willing for the release to happen. It will happen spontaneously, because it’s already so. ~Reb Anderson Remember, when you are in a relaxed mood, you are not. You are, only when you are in a tense mood. When you are relaxed you are part of the whole; you are not. Then boundaries are blurred; then the whole and the part are no more separate. They meet, they merge… surrender happens. ~Osho This is what is asked of us, over and over and over, to offer our empty hands. To let the things we are holding so tightly just drop. To give it all up, everything, that does not exist in this moment here. All that has happened, that we think we somehow need to do something about, all that we think might happen, or we hope will happen, every sweet dream that we cling to. This is like God’s loving strip search, give it all over! Something else wants to live you. And you can feel it. ~Jeannie Zandi Self-surrender is the surrender of all self-concern. It cannot be done, it happens when you realise your true nature. ~Nisargadatta Maharaj
