Why Surrender?

See this short poem…

As children bring their broken toys
With tears for us to mend,
I brought my broken dreams to God
Because he is my friend.

But instead of leaving Him
In peace to work alone,
I hung around and tried to help
With ways that were my own.

At last I snatched them back and cried,
“How can you be so slow?”
“My child”, he said, “What could I do?”
“You never did let go!”

Beyond your well-conceived plans and creativity, beyond all the hard work you put in, there is still more at work in the unfolding of life that is not in your control.

This is why the Wise Masters have pointed, to do all you can and must, and let go of attachment to the results.

Results will come when they will come, in the shape and form that they will come.

And when they do, accept and receive what did come, with gratitude.

This is a mindset necessary to eliminate struggle and suffering.

This is why you must cultivate surrender – to eliminate struggle and suffering.

The way to surrender?

Do what you must, and let go of the rest.
