In order to receive, you have to surrender first. In our productivity-focused, profit-driven, control-freaking world, surrender sometimes feels like the ultimate terror. But you can’t connect with transpersonal energy unless you surrender to it. It won’t be controlled, or micro-managed, or dictated to. It has its own terms, agenda, timeline, and values. If you don’t surrender, you won’t be able to connect with it, or receive the gift of transformation.

How good are you at surrendering? What stands in your way?
