     To me, surrendering means surrendering my egoic mind, the mind that is self-centered, possessive, not caring  for others that incudes nature-animals, plants, trees, water,earth and sky.I am responsible and accountable for messing things up and doing right to sustain and preserve the creation. How do  I employ my energy in creating, sustaining, contributing and serving life is my life mission. When I live this way, I feel I am in harmony with life force. I feel like I am in a dance with the life force. When i receive the grace from nature and people, my heart is filled with joyful gratitude. Such gifts are not measured on a materialistic scale. They are experienced in our hearts and they blossom our hearts.

    This may sound very simple. It is my knowing that too much "headding" takes away the simple joys of 'hearting". How to have the  joyful innocence of a child in an adult body and mind is an interesting challenge. It is like planting a seed and watching it grow with an ever present curiosity. It is like hearing the birds chirping, watching the clouds floating and listening to the inner voice singing on its own.These are the moments of grace and I am blessed to have them coming everyday on their own. My heart is filled with gratefulness.

    May we keep our hearts open to receive and give gifts coming from everywhere!
