Beginnings lead to endings and what kind of endings they lead to are often beyond our control. The desire to control what we cannot control creates inertia that prevents us from moving into the unseen to create a new beginning. We have all experienced that inertia and the fear that underlies it and we can overcome it.
Surrender literally means to stop fighting. Stop fighting with yourself. Stop fighting the universe and the natural flow of things. Stop resisting and pushing against reality.
You can train your brain to become mindful and accept things as they are by saying “yes” to the realities of daily life without becoming discouraged.
You can let go of your attachment to control, then confidently surrender to the process, determined to be at peace with the outcome.
By becoming emotionally detached, yet, keenly mindful in the now moment you can seize opportunities to keep your promises to yourself as they arise through present moment living.
You can beat inertia by applying the mix of methods by choosing what combination fits your particular circumstances and mood.
