BEING PLUGGED INTO SURRENDER

February 28, 2014

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine posted the following on his Facebook page. “I’ve come into a higher CONSCIOUSNESS that to RELINQUISH and to SURRENDER are entirely two different things and I no longer want to GIVE UP…. I want to ACCEPT that I AM NOT IN CONTROL OF EVERYTHING and ACCEPT that my control is LIMITED. Periodically, over the last few weeks I have been thinking about what he said and realized that he, like many people associate the word “surrender” with negative energy and meanings. He was, like so many other people I know, viewing it as a weakness or deficiency. He saw surrendering as giving up. Another friend of mine told me those who surrender are losers.

I have been thinking about what the word surrender for me. However, I have not been able to agree with what he said about surrender. See in my Dream, the word “surrender” is a positive.

“Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn’t you – all of the expectations, all of the beliefs – and becoming who you are.”

P is for Pomegranates

I know I was supposed to write about a Q thing this week, but I had an epiphany the other day while taking a 15-minute break and found myself in a quandary over whether to pay attention to my new P inspiration, my Q inspiration or write about both my P and my Q. In sharing with my followers on FB that I was discerning what to do most said to follow my instinct and inspiration and give myself another P week. A few told me to write about both my P and my Q. One of my friends, had a sense of humor, and shared that it was nice to see me paying attention to my P and Q. (LOL – Thanks Milton). So after some prayer and meditation, I have decided to do my P thing.

I was taking a short break from my normal routine of reading, writing, grading, and editing and when I turned on the television, Food Networks new show The Kitchen was on and Katie Lee was showing an easy way to get the seeds out of a pomegranate

Around our house, Wednesday night is the night we take out the trash. The little cans are emptied, the kitchen bag pulled and tied shut, and they all are thrown in our wheeling little dumpster. We also condense the recycle bins and bring them down to the curb as well. We have to do it at night because the trash men normally come before either of us up and moving.

Over the last few years, we have become increasingly focused on recycling and reusing as we strive to reduce our carbon footprint on the environment. We put a lot of thought into what goes into the trash, what goes into the recycle bin, and what we can reuse somewhere or for something else. When we throw something out, we are very clear on what and why it is being thrown out.
