What exactly is the state of surrender, and why are we using surrender at every drop of a hat ? Is it hip, is it cool and pretty happening kinda word or just something ‘in vogue’, a lingo jumping out of oxford dictionary…

So what have you surrendered ? What’s the big deal about it ? Whom are we surrendering by the way ? Sounds crazy , or not so as one may refute.

The awakened ones might say of course…surrender to the source, next question is who is the source ? Is it god, universe or a person ? Can be anything, anyone according to our belief system; it’s pretty straight. If today we believe that the source is the ‘universe’, than so it maybe since every star, every planet, the whole of constellation revolves in it’s vast expanse; all of it does affect human attitude and culture. What if you believe that source is a person than yes it is so ! That source is maybe the ‘living siddha or ascended master adorning a human body’, if he is the one who ignites the fire in you , so be it. Or else as most of us believe it’s a supernatural power ‘god’, by all means ‘yes’ ! Whoever it maybe the bottomline is you do derive your strength from them and you feel happy when you are connected.

When exactly should you get into this state ?

I would say all the  time but if you really cannot stay in this state than perhaps some situations in your life you will have to 'let go'. To illustrate this , few examples are as under...


  1. The world is cruel, insane, I don’t seem to belong …

  2. Everybody is just trying to be pricey, no genuineness, no generosity !

  3. I am always suffering ,I am not going to try further …

  4. So many expectations…no respite !

  5. I am being tested all the time , no effort seem to suffice …

  6. I don’t know where my life is heading , nothing is really making sense !

  7. I have ‘given up’ …

  8. I am in love but he /she doesn’t respond !

  9. The world seems to get these things so easily yet I never seem to ‘survive’
  10. I am so unlucky

Does any of this reminds you of ‘yourself’ …in some point in life where you were hitting the ‘dead end’ or didn’t know whom to hold on to ?I guess many of us will resonate with these situations …

As the famous saying goes "When the going gets tough the tough gets going".Yes life does make you face some ‘hard times’ or shall we say ‘disguised growth opportunity’…

  1. But we still have to live, love and sometimes maybe move on …that’s what enriches the soul, that’s what’s called, ‘living’…had it been easy, one would have missed the depth of it ! As one may  say the “best swimmers are the one’s who stick to the ‘deep’ when the rest are just buoying in the shallows", ironical statement yet profoundly true . So it is with life ! You hold on to it strong when it is the roughest and it will see you through …even better surrender!

    So getting back to surrender , honestly speaking it is one of the most powerful vices one can think of , it actually makes you feel ‘liberated’ to say the least. Imagine when nothing ‘binds’ you, you are free and that’s exactly what surrendering does, you are setting a powerful signal to the universe , look ‘now nothing controls me’ take over and yes universe than unfolds some mindblowing ‘miracles’…just be open to ‘receive’ them! It might sound a little gibberish and ‘dreamlike’ but try it with 100% surrender as in with ‘no attachment’ to the outcome and trust me, you will be pleasantly surprised with what unfolds …

    Many of you reading this may have some question’s popping up, things like if I am unemployed …that means just by surrendering I will get a job ? or something like I just flunked my exams so if I surrender I will pass ? Well sounds a little outrageous but understand ‘surrendering’ doesn’t mean that you stop doing your ‘karma’ i.e, your part of the act , you do your part and than surrender. Like apply for job everywhere possible, update your skills, network with the right people and than surrender ,don’t get hooked on to the result ; in the ‘exam' case, study wholeheartedly and trust the universe will deliver the result in the right time ! And it will ! for sure. As long as you have done your part ,that’s what matters rest ‘have faith’ in the universal support and let things materialize in divine timing smoothly and beautifully. It’s like attachment to your part of work and detachment to the result . Apply this principle in every part of your life and you will come out with ‘flying colours’.Remember while doing your karma do it with complete integrity and ‘soulfullness’ and you for sure will rise like a ‘phoenix’…! By ‘soulfullness’ I mean immerse your spirit in your work …let your soul take over and see every act of yours as a ‘piece  of excellence’ …as a work of ‘class’… And if despite everything done from your end and still surrendering doesn’t yield what you desired, than it’s time you realize either that ‘something’ is not meant to be or universe has a better ‘game plan’ for you so buddy ‘course correct’ or move on !
