Sweet Surrender -Trusting the Divine

It has been said, when you put down the sword, God appears. It’s what some call surrendering or sweet surrender to the Divine. But what does it mean?

As I understand it, to sweet surrender is to accept that we don’t have all the answers; that we don’t know all the questions; that we’ll probably be misunderstood by many; that maybe perhaps, God is an invention of our mind created by evolution to assure the survival of our species. And yet in spite of it all, we decide not to fight these doubts, reason and questions. We let go of the need to defend our faith and decide to trust our hearts. Paul called it “to be a fool for Jesus.” Krishna asked Arjuna to give it all up and surrender to him. Wiccans talk about giving up themselves to the Goddess. Einstein spoke of choosing to live life as if everything a miracle or as if nothing is.

There seems to be two kind of people in the world: the “videndo credes” (I see, therefore I believe) or the “credendo vides” ( I believe, therefore I see). Hence, the sweet surrender means, in part, to stop fighting against the credendo vides in you. It also means to leave your prejudices behind and open ourselves to new perspectives. Sweet surrendering is to empty yourself to fill yourself once more. It’s to see what you are bringing from past learning and experiences that is not useful in this moment in time, and lovingly let it go. Jesus speaks of wearing new robes; the Tao recommends to not hold on to anything, but to dance with the rhythm of life. Part of sweet surrendering consists of feeling the fear of abandoning the familiar and still walk into the unknown.

To surrender is also to give up the need to always be right. It’s to learn to listen: your inner voice, nature’s cycles, friends and foes. And silence. It’s to let Spirit -not fear, vanity or insecurity- to speak through us. To surrender is stop the constant fight between what “should be” and what actually “is,” including our view of the Divine. Is to stop complaining to God about this or that -and, according to Meister Eckhart, it even includes stopping asking God for this or that. Once you surrender to the Divine, you simply trust that the Divine knows best. You accept that the Divine saw (or designed) that challenging experience coming your way and allow it to happen because it knew it would somehow help you grow in spirit. So surrendering is to accept, with equal gratefulness, the sour with the sweet.

The surrendered heart knows that all comes from God and hence, wherever light or dark, nothing can be truly evil. The heart surrendered to the Power of Love feels joy in spite of the human feelings because it knows itself to be protected; it knows that the experience has been bestowed upon it to educate it; that its sacred tears have been orchestrated by the Great Spirit to become source for love, compassion, and unity. But above all, the surrendered heart knows it is not alone; that it beats and lives within the infinite love of the Goddess who loves, suffers, rejoices and learns with it. And when the surrendered heart grows in God, God grows in it.
