For a large portion of my life, I trusted and surrendered my religious beliefs to a specific organization. I wasn’t naïve enough to believe they were perfect, but I was willing to forgo what I considered to be minor imperfections. I trusted them and for the most part that trust was not broken.
If we can trust religious organizations knowing they are imperfect, then why do we sometimes struggle to trust — or surrender — to The Divine? Perhaps it is simply a matter of trust. Do we really believe our Higher Power has our best interests as His or Her priority? Will we be safe? Or, will we lose things such as material possessions or loved ones?
To surrender to The Divine means to turn over the care of our lives to that which created us in the first place. How can we go wrong? That which knows us more intimately than we know ourselves and loves us more than any human ever will — including ourselves — is trustworthy.
The main reason we resist is our attachment to results. It’s okay to dream, make plans, and hope for a brighter future. But, if we could understand that The Divine wants what is best for us and The Divine’s plans for us far exceed our own meager ambitions, we wouldn’t hesitate to trust.
