surrender





.

Until you practice surrender, the spiritual dimension is something you read about,
 talk about, get excited about, write books about, think about, believe in - 
or don’t, as the case may be. It makes no difference. 
Not until you surrender does it become a living reality in your life. 

When you do, the energy that you emanate and which then runs your life
 is of a much higher vibrational frequency than the mind energy that runs our world - 
the energy that created the existing social, political, and economic structures of our civilization, 
and which also continuously perpetuates itself through our educational systems and media. 

Through surrender, spiritual energy comes into this world. 
It creates no suffering for yourself, for other humans, or any other life form on the planet. 
Unlike mind energy, it does not pollute the earth, and is not subject to the law of polarities, 
which dictates that nothing can exist without its opposite, that there can be no good without bad. 

Those who run on mind energy, which is still the vast majority of the Earth’s population, 
remain unaware of the existence of spiritual energy. 
It belongs to a different order of reality and will create a different world 
when a sufficient number of humans enter the surrendered state 
and so become totally free of negativity. 
If the Earth is to survive, this will be the energy of those who inhabit it.




~ Eckhart Tolle
from The Power of Now

This is lovely, and particularly important to reflect on in the holiday season, where mind-energy takes over so readily.
