Do you ever get confused by the words surrender, let go? The journey to the answers for me has been strange, sometimes painful, yet somehow mystical always ending in simplicity. By no means do I have all the answers but I wanted to capture for myself what I know for sure in this moment.
When we let go of the majority of our possessions before we came to Bali I thought the letting go was about my ability to let go of what I had accumulated that represented my life, my life style. It really was about surrendering the “need” to have things, not the things themselves but more what they represented. The need for security, ownership, prestige, status, wrapped up in my need for beauty, love, comfort, wrapped up in my need for recognition, respect, wrapped in my need to succeed, my need to make a difference.
