Episode 18, February 2022: Surrender Without Capitulation

When you want something, sometimes your desire for that thing can grow and expand to the point that you find yourself almost addicted to the idea of having it. It’s as if the thing itself loses its appeal. You lose sight of the original object of your desire and instead become attached to the idea of getting it and having it. As a result, your choices become highly focused; almost everything you do seems to be oriented toward the prospect of getting and having.

“Achieve, achieve, achieve!” screams the mind. “Do whatever you have to do to make sure that thing is added to your collection as soon as possible!”

Well, I’ve fallen into this achievement trap a few times in my life. Watch the video and learn a little about how I got out of it!

I’ve learned that Acceptance is not passivity, agreement, or capitulation. It is the simple awareness, recognition, and understanding of what is, without any attachment or agenda. The more I practice acceptance, the more I surrender to what is, the more I flow with life rather than fighting against it.

I encourage you to develop and expand your practice of Acceptance and Surrender so that it gives you more freedom to enjoy all aspects of your amazing life.
