#OneWord Thursday: #Surrender to Powerful Present

On November 7, 2013 by Janice Taylor

Imagine, just for a moment, what your life might look like if you stopped fighting, stopped hiding, stopped resisting life.  Imagine what it might feel like if you let go of trying to force the issue, if you stopped trying to manipulate the situation.  Breathe deeply and allow the divine to present herself to you.  Surrender to the moment.

Here, 8 powerful quotes that highlight the beauty of surrender.

“Always say “yes” to the present moment. What could be more futile, more insane, than to create inner resistance to what already is? what could be more insane than to oppose life itself, which is now and always now? Surrender to what is. Say “yes” to life — and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

“The creative process is a process of surrender, not control.” ~ Julia Cameron

“Change is the essence of life.  Be willing to surrender what you are for what you could become.” ~ Anonymous

“Something amazing happens when we surrender and just love. We melt into another world, a realm of power already within us. The world changes when we change. The world softens when we soften. The world loves us when we choose to love the world.” ~ Marianne Williamson

“The reason why many are still troubled, still seeking, still making little forward progress is because they haven’t yet come to the end of themselves. We’re still trying to give orders, and interfering with God’s work within us.”  ~ A.W. Tozer

“We rise up
And we fall down
Only to rise again” ~ Karen Hackel

“I remember sitting and meditating beside a slow flowing river in India, and I got the feeling that this river could teach me all the secrets of the mystery of life. If we learn to surrender to a stone, a flower, to a man, to a woman, or a river, it becomes a door to the Whole.” ~ Swami Dhyan Giten

“The greatness of the man’s power is the measure of his surrender.” ~ William Booth

“No matter how much you stress or obsess about the past or future, you can’t change either one. In the present is where your power lies.” ~ Mandy Hale
