Surrender: Cease resistance.
As I transition my life to one of more serenity I find myself seeking more time alone, or more aptly, more time with my own mind. It’s pretty cool to just observe your mind, and follow without judgement or attachment wherever it goes. I am really enjoying my time at the very special Bolton mountain. It’s peaceful. I never thought I would enjoy hiking alone but it’s really a special time to just “be” and enjoy nature without electronic distraction.
In my practice over the last few months I’ve notice dramatic positive changes in my relationships and knowing that the only thing that changed was me, I realize how much control we have over our mental state, both positive and negative. How enjoyable life can be and much more rewarding relationships can be through acceptance. Both acceptance and love of ourselves and seeing the beautiful beings in others. Although it is a constant challenge to let the ego go, and not follow societal’s influence to blame and get angry, I just feel much better when I don’t. And that makes my life better overall.
