Surrender to God is advocated by many of the world’s religious traditions
It is considered a means of transcending the individual self. But the word surrender is often misunderstood.
What we want most in life is to be right. And we want to know that we are right. But one of life’s most bittersweet moments is when we finally realise that we don’t have it all figured out. Everyone with an ounce of self awareness eventually figures out there’s a price to pay to be right.
The two quotes below may shed some light on this.
Whatever is destined not to happen will not happen, try as you may .Whatever is destined to happen will happen, do what you may to prevent it.That is certain. The best course, therefore, is to remain silent.
Everything changes from moment to moment, so why spend so much time and energy worrying about what has been or what is to come? Why try to control time, those people close to us or even our own lives, it’s impossible.
