Surrender. Nothing delivers more peace and balance to a life out of control than simple surrender.
This surrender can be to a spouse, partner or a trusted lover. Or it can be to personal obedience to disciplines. Or it can be to Divine Providence.
Surrender can grow and deepen to an abandonment to the duty of each moment, to what life delivers, to the responsibilities and obligations of being a wife, mother, daughter, sister, professional, citizen – and person. It is all-encompassing.
The value of surrender is predicated on the depth of understanding that comes with the investment of trust that submission requires. Our belief is that learning about our instinctive needs is a helpful way to gain that kind of self-knowledge and awareness, and thus a way to increase the value of the gift we make of ourselves and give to others.
