The‌ ‌Answer‌ ‌is‌ ‌Always‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ ‌Surrender‌ 

The most important thing to remember

Is the answer is always in the surrender.

Our little egos fight so hard

To maintain the illusion of control

Always grasping tightly

Because the ego fears 

the Divine Unknown

Surrender transcends fear.

By its very nature,

It allows an open-armed and loving space

For fear to express its frenzied frequency

And surrender also does something even more magical—

It creates space for the Grand Mystery

Since it doesn’t have the strangling choke-hold of Fear,

In Surrender,

Everything is allowed

To move and grow

To inhale and exhale

Expand and contract

Rise and collapse

Be born and die

And be born anew.


Unfurl those pretty fingers

From that strangling grip

you’ve tried to place

on the Universe.

Silly girl.

Your tantrums are charming


You continue to weep

as you enter into

your self-made cage.

It is this

that is madness.

S u r r e n d e r

Let your hair

dance around you

as you free fall

into the Divine Unknown.



Trust in this

Deep, ancient Love.

Allow your own Light

to shine through you,

expanding beyond

your human body.

You ARE—


It all IS—

the same infinite Energy.

Trust that you will learn to fly,

with elegance, grace, and ease.

This is how Angels are born.
