“The universe is ingenious in the ways it can help you.  Let it.” —  Alan Cohen

I just love this quote! How wonderful its message.  I especially enjoy the choice of the word “ingenious.”  M-W uses words to describe it like, discernment, discovery, inventing, originality, resourcefulness and cleverness.  The origins of the word speak to it being “natural capacity.”

It warms my heart to think the Universe is doing all these delicious things for me.  And all I have to do is “let it.”

I’m all about Surrender these days.  It is a wonderful practice, though a constant one.  I keep seeing my teacher, Paulette Terrels, twirling her palms up and out.  “Keep surrendering, releasing,” she says.

Surrender is often misunderstood as inactivity.  Truthfully, it has nothing to do with the bodying doing or not doing.  It’s an attitude, a state of mind, which keeps saying, “Okay.  This is the way it is.”

I suppose it starts to get deep into spiritual soil.  Surrender asks you to trust in a higher power.  “Turning our will and lives over to the care of God as we understand Him,” says Alcoholics Anonymous.  I always find, though, when I do, miracles abound!  The more I release, the better it gets.

It has to begin with my Intention.  What is it I really want?  Then, turning it over to the Universe to guide, to show me the way.  After all, the Universe is far more ingenious than I am!

Do you have stories of miracles from surrender you’d like to share?
