Surrender - living in the mystery


The void is that place in our lives...
 where we've been clinging to for dear life . . .
is stripped away.

It's that place in us where we let go of what we know...
 what we want...
 and surrender to the unknown...

It means standing there with our hands empty for a while...
  sometimes watching everything we wanted disappear...
 our self image...
 our definition of who we thought we should be...
  the people we thought we had to have...
 the things we thought were so important to collect and surround ourselves with...
 the job we were certain was ours...
 the place we thought we'd live in all our lives. 

Surrender control.
 Step into the void with courage.
 Learn to say "I don't know".

Quit hanging on to the handrails . . .
Let go. Surrender. Go for the ride of your life...
