2021 | The Year of Surrender – Entry 1

I Was Reared in the “Name It Claim It” Genre: Now I’m Tired.

“Ask what you will”, they said, “and it will be done for you.”

The problem is I did not know what I wanted or what was best for me. So started a cycle of bad marriages, unwanted circumstances and feeling like I was somehow not in the right place and everything was happening at the wrong time. I began to say what I saw, therefore my confession was skewed, which fueled an unending flow of more bad experiences. I have grown weary of this.

Like me, some of you need a break from the Manifestation team and are ready to surrender to the Divine. Some call it God, Goddess, The Absolute, Brahma, Brahman, Spirit, Orisha, Loa, The Deep, The Light, whatever. If you have not learned anything in all of your mistakes [in all of my e-zine articles], you know It exists. I will call It Spirit in this post.

There is a school of thought that says Spirit is neutral and does not know the difference between good and bad. I go further to say that when [S]he is surrendered to, and little demand is made, good things occur as a result, things conducive to life.

I Haven’t Tried Surrender Since I Was a Baby, and It Wasn’t Too Bad Then.

Swami Vivekananda said:

Instead of the sacrifice of pouring oblations into the fire, perform this one great sacrifice day and night — the sacrifice of your little self. “In search of wealth in this world, Thou art the only wealth I have found; I sacrifice myself unto Thee. In search of some one to be loved, Thou art the only one beloved I have found; I sacrifice myself unto Thee.” Let us repeat this day and night, and say, “Nothing for me; no matter whether the thing is good, bad, or indifferent; I do not care for it; I sacrifice all unto Thee.”

There is freedom in this passage, for we see that in all of the genocides and massacres of the world, there was strife and intense selfish desire that only led to death and chaos.

You want to trust Spirit. You are ready to trust Spirit. How do you become as a child again?

Any Great Feat Begins with Intention. Here’s Your 1st Assignment.

Your intention, my intention, will be different this time.

I don’t know how many posts I will write. I don’t know how this will change me. What I do know is there will be no force, only surrender. I also know that to do something over and over again when it is not working for you is called insanity.

You may have been doing life wrong for a long time so don’t be surprised if you have pause and consider how and what to think along the way.

If you want to join me on this journey, starting now, through December 31 2021, here is the plan. I think we are stronger together 🙂

Your intention for the remainder of December 2020 is to surrender to the Highest Manifestation of Life. This is all you will focus on.

The Mantra is: I surrender to the Highest Manifestation of Spirit while I live on Earth.

Don’t think about love; don’t think about money; don’t think about your enemies, don’t think about death, do not consider work.

What will this accomplish? I believe you will begin to feel the presence of Spirit in a big way and Spirit will demonstrate synchronicities and It’s True personality. It’s time to get to know Spirit again, because everything Spirit pushes, Spirit backs up, and that’s all you need.

  1. I like this idea. You say the month of December eh? It’s worth a try and sounds quite liberating because at this point, I’m a bit exhausted and totally ready to surrender for sure. After making my meditation practice more consistent, meaning I’ve rarely missed at the very most more than 2 days in week’s time, I’m definitely feeling the distinction between Spirit and human in my waking life. Surrender will be an exercise in “trusting”. I’m definitely cool with that.

    • December 2020 is the month in which we will focus on the initial mantra, which gets us ready for 2021. The real work begins in January 2021 and will go on thru the entire year of 2021.
