When I was first introduced to the word and concept of "surrender," I'll be honest I thought it was a sign of weakness. Having experienced certain events in my life that required me to surrender (and still do) in order to resolve life's challenges at times, I have a newfound perspective about "surrender." It's very powerful and freeing when you choose to stop fighting with yourself and others. The worst conflicts tend to happen internally and unfortunately if not addressed, could spill out into the world. Below is the universal prayer my teacher Pierre recited with our emotional intelligence class and I would love to share it with you. I hope for those who feel comfortable reading the universal prayer you can attain something very positive that speaks to you.
"Lord, may I evolve the habit of surrendering my burden onto you
For it is not my responsibility to do, fix, or repair anything
Take from me self-judgement, flagellation, and accusation
Give me the intelligence to remember that all healing come from you
Grant me the wisdom to forgive my accusers and enemies
For they are the reflection of internal conflicts that I have yet to address
Ground in me your Compassion and Divine Love that I may become a vessel for your Will and Purpose on earth.
For you are The Way, The Truth, The Light, and The Path of redemption.
