Surrender is not giving up, it is letting go of the struggle to control or make something happen. We open up to a greater vision of what is possible, take the Spirit`s Eye View of our lives, and go for more. The story of why we can`t have what we want is the only thing holding us back. Spirit holds nothing against Itself, and therefore holds nothing against us. We are free enough to create bondage, but it`s only a thought; change it.
