“Always remember, deep in your heart that All is Well and everything is Unfolding as it should. You are the Self (God Within), That perfect, immutable Self. There is only the one Self and you are That. You are Bright and Shining. You are the sun behind the clouds. Rejoice! All is Well.

This Supernal Awareness that everything is Well, is of The Ultimate. Yet you are in a human bod and you must honor what is required to respect this journey. Everything that you do and say will return to you in order to learn compassion. Therefore it behooves you to abide in Goodness while you are in this world. Be humble, gentle and strong. Alleviate the suffering of others. This is Truth. This is the highest thing that you can do while you are on this earth. This is holiness.”

Robert Adams

You are, your real nature, absolute reality.
So you see you are not what you appear to be.

"Surrendering is very important. To whom do you surrender? To the
source, the Self. You may say something like this: "Okay Self, take my problems. Take my negativity, take everything, Thy will be done. I no longer have any concern about these things."

And you stop reacting towards person, place or thing. You mellow out. You become calm, in the face of all adversity. It makes no difference what is facing you. You become happy, peaceful and calm."

OMG - I did that on Jan 2006!

Same thing - "give me your burdens" - and I DID!!!!

All the minutia of my life gave it to the One, God, our Source.

You should talk to my friends of decades-- what a change in me!!!
One therapist friend, I have so many of them...said what a pleasure it was to call me - cuz I was always happy and up.
(Everybody having so many problems, oy.) Not anymore! Gave 'em away.

I encourage everyone to do this...try 2 weeks - you'll never stop.

That's wonderful. Did you just surrender once?

I've been surrendering over the past 6 months. It has definitely helped. I'm not reacting to people and situations like before.

Yay!
It was a 'test' of sorts...to do what Jesus suggested, (no one else I knew was doing it!
I counseled Christians - lemme tell ya they were not following instructions! Ha!) So, how novel, I gave God my burdens -
and vowed to not worry/ be not afraid/ be anxious for nothing.

After 2 weeks the world didn't end with me not worrying, lol!
I continue to this day over a decade later. Whew, wonder if I've added years to my life! Ha!


PS I think you should listen to someone who walks on water.
And now, I do ACIM, A Course In Miracles - channeled over 7 yrs by Jesus, himself!
Robert would approve. Ha!

Yes, I've a situation in life at the moment that feels unfair and unjust. It seems all that can be done about it is to surrender it. Don't know how this situation will turn out but at least there is no bitterness. Perhaps it is a test.

A quote from Ramana on surrender:

"Either the thoughts are eliminated by holding on to the root thought I or one surrenders oneself unconditionally to the Higher Power. These are the only two ways for realisation. It is not enough that one thinks of God while doing the karma, but one must continually and unceasing think of Him. Then alone will the mind become pure. God cannot be deceived by outward genuflections, bowings and prostrations. Leave it to Him. Surrender unreservedly. One of two things must be done. Either surrender because you admit your inability and also require a Higher Power to help you; or investigate into the cause of misery, go into the source and merge into the Self. Either way you will be free from misery. God never forsakes one who has surrendered."

"Surrender is complete only when you reach the stage Thou are all’ and ‘Thy will be done’. … you can have no likes or dislikes after your surrender; your will should become completely non-existent, the Lord’s will taking its place."

Ramana
