I've been living a surrender experiment of my own since 2015, which coincidentally is when this book was published, though I've only discovered it now in 2021.
In November of 2015, in a drastic gesture following a moment of satori, I quit my cushy job, gave away all my possessions, gave up my apartment in San Francisco, and hit the road on my motorcycle. My mission was to "go where the road takes me". I set out to face my fears and to let love lead the way. And I ended up in a very difficult position with seemingly no way to love myself out of the corner.
This is a long story for another time. Suffice it to say, the surrender experiment is the deep end. It starts easy and gets harder until it's easy again. I've now embarked on the second experiment in the series. This time there's a baby involved. Breathing is the most effective practice for enjoying these pursuits.
Thank you Lynne, this is a beautiful way to conceive of money.
Money feels like holy water to me in moments of impulsive generosity, like when someone says they like something I have and I suddenly know it is for them.
Gratitude meditation or journaling do well to make me mindful of the abundance of money.
Cup your hands. Bring a cup. Share your cup. Nourish life. Keep it clean. Wash away your worries, pains, and ills. When plenty, bale out, bail out. When it dries up, suck it up, move on. Like water, still money becomes poison. Always let it flow.
