Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Dawn Downey

Acceptance. It sounds so gentle; you foolishly imagine you might try it. As if you could choose. You don't choose. You plummet into acceptance, because the floor has collapsed beneath your feet. — Dawn Downey

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Kristiane Backer

Nothing happens without God's will, and life doesn't always go according to plan. Man proposes, God disposes. And it is God's will that we need to surrender to. In retrospect it usually all makes sense. — Kristiane Backer

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Maggie Nelson

For to wish to forget how much you loved someone - and then, to actually forget - can feel, at times, like the slaughter of a beautiful bird who chose, by nothing short of grace, to make a habitat of your heart. I have heard that this pain can be converted, as it were, by accepting "the fundamental impermanence of all things." This acceptance bewilders me: sometimes it seems an act of will; at others, of surrender. Often I feel myself to be rocking between them (seasickness). — Maggie Nelson

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Maggie Nelson

I have heard that this pain can be converted, as it were, by accepting "the fundamental impermanence of all things." This acceptance bewilders me: sometimes it seems an act of will; at others, of surrender. — Maggie Nelson

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Dan Millman

Surrender means accepting this moment, this body, and this life with open arms. Surrender involves getting out of your own way and living in accord with a higher will, expressed as the wisdom of the heart. Far more than passive acceptance, surrender uses every challenge as a means of spiritual growth and expanded awareness. — Dan Millman

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Eckhart Tolle

Watch any plant or animal and let it teach you acceptance of what is, surrender to the Now.
Let it teach you Being.
Let it teach you integrity - which means to be one, to be yourself, to be real.
Let it teach you how to live and how to die, and how not to make living and dying into a problem. — Eckhart Tolle

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Jeffrey Small

He'd wondered for so many years if he'd ever be able to forgive his father. Maybe he'd just used the wrong word. Surrender. Acceptance. Those seemed better. — Jeffrey Small

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Nathaniel Branden

The more you surrender to the fear of someone's disapproval, the more you lose face in your own eyes, and the more desperate you become for someone's approval. Within you is a void that should have been filled by self-esteem. When you attempt to fill it with the approval of others instead, the void grows deeper and the hunger for acceptance and approval grows stronger. The only solution is to summon the courage to honor your own judgment, frightening though that may be in the beginning. — Nathaniel Branden

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By George C. Lorimer

To deny one's self, to take up the cross, denotes something immeasurably grander than self-imposed penance or rigid conformity to a Divine statute. It is the surrender of self to an ennobling work, an absolute subordination of personal advantages and of personal pleasures for the sake of truth and the welfare of others, and a willing acceptance of every disability which their interests may entail. — George C. Lorimer

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Gian Kumar

Like and dislike, good or bad, God and devil, this and that,
Creates dualities and confuses mind to discriminate and make choices.
In Oneness, they all merge into surrender and acceptance. — Gian Kumar

Acceptance is an active response to a temporary situation; surrender is a passive reaction to a situation that you think will last forever.
-Personal Revolutions — Oli Anderson

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By David Platt

Accept him? Do we really think Jesus needs our acceptance? Don't we need him? Jesus is no longer one to be accepted or invited in but one who is infinitely worthy of our immediate and total surrender. — David Platt

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By David R. Hawkins

events are due to decisions, and choices are based on our intentions. What we get is the result of these choices, even though they are unconscious, rather than what we think we want. When we surrender the pressure of wantingness, we are clear to make wiser choices and decisions. We think that our happiness depends on controlling events, and that facts are what upset us. Actually, it is our feelings and thoughts about these facts that are the real cause of our upset. Facts in and of themselves are neutral things. The power we give them is due to our attitude of acceptance or non-acceptance and our overall feeling state. — David R. Hawkins

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Shelley Lundquist

The healing that comes with self-acceptance rippled through my life. As I embraced my carefree nature, I began living from my truth, and watched as the pure expression of who I am and the love I bring to the world illuminated my life. — Shelley Lundquist

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Kevin Sessums

People who aren't addicts want to know why I became one. They ask whether I had a midlife crisis. I'm only speaking for myself now, but I've stopped asking why and how. It's all about surrender and acceptance. It doesn't matter why I am an addict. — Kevin Sessums

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Rajneesh

Relaxation is one of the most complex phenomena - very rich, multidimensional.

All these are part of it, and all these start happening if you learn the ways of relaxation. — Rajneesh

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Clarice Lispector

But if I hope to understand in order to accept things - the act of surrender will never happen. I must take the plunge all at once, a plunge that includes comprehension and especially incomprehension. And who am I to dare to think? What I have to do is surrender. How is it done? I know however that only by walking do you know how to walk and - miracle - find yourself walking. — Clarice Lispector

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Terry Brooks

Shea, particularly, had passed the point where his chief emotion was fear; now he felt only a sense of numbness that dulled his mind into self-imposed surrender, a robot-like acceptance of the fact that he was being led to the proverbial slaughter. — Terry Brooks

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Michael Bassey Johnson

Being free brings a lightness, a carefree surrender to all that is happening around you, and, above all, an acceptance of reality. — Deepak Chopra

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Mastin Kipp

If you choose to see everything as a miracle, then where you are right now is perfect. There is nowhere to run to; there is nothing else to do except be in this moment and allow what is to be. From that place of radical acceptance, major change can happen. The first step in any transformational experience is acceptance and surrender to the present moment, the way that it is. From that place we have the awareness, humility and power to change what is. — Mastin Kipp

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Nityananda Das

To be able to accept everything that comes our way, even the things we don't want to accept, is the art of Love. However, this acceptance isn't to become conformists or martyrs. The art of accepting has to do with surrendering the need for control; it's ceasing the effort to regulate our environment and manipulate the human beings, as well as the other creatures, within it.
"When we give up our attachment to the outcome and rest our minds in a peaceful state, then we have a better chance to act free from the results. Such a state of surrender could be described as "just be-ing".
"Whatever happens is an indication that at some level we're ready for it, or at least we've got all the tools required in order to become ready, and face any problem or obstacle that may arise along this path. — Nityananda Das

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Henry Miller

Life, as we all know, is conflict, and man, being part of life, is himself an expression of conflict. If he recognizes the fact and accepts it, he is apt, despite the conflict, to know peace and to enjoy it. But to arrive at this end, which is only a beginning (for we haven't begun to live yet!), a man has got to learn the doctrine of acceptance, that is, of unconditional surrender, which is love. — Henry Miller

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Maureen Rose Muldoon

In order to grow
you have to let go
of all that you are
and all that you know. — Maureen Rose Muldoon

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Maximus Freeman

Resist nothing, allow everything, and surrender that which persists. — Maximus Freeman

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Marianne Williamson

The heart's transformation is not attained through the mind - it's attained through surrender, authenticity, forgiveness, faith, honesty, acceptance, vulnerability, humility, willingness, nonjudgment, and other characterological values that have to be learned and relearned continuously. — Marianne Williamson

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Andrew Murray

And here it is that the teaching is needed: If you would enter into full fellowship with Christ in His death,and know the full deliverance from self, humble yourself. This is your duty. Place yourself before God in your helplessness; consent to the fact that you are powerless to slay yourself; give yourself in patient and trustful surrender to God. Accept every humiliation; look upon every person who tries or troubles you as a means of grace to humble you. God will see such acceptance as proof that your whole heart desires it. It is the path of humility that leads to the full and perfect experience of our death with Christ. Beware of the mistake so many make. They have so many qualifications and limitations, so many thoughts and questions as to what true humility is to be and to do that they never unreservedly yield themselves to it. Humble yourself unto death. It is in the death to self that humility is perfected. — Andrew Murray

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Human Angels

The total acceptance of ourselves in the present moment without judging things that happen, letting things happen as they happen, is the final act that frees us from the ego: this is the unconditional surrender of the ego to the Higher Self. — Human Angels

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Erin Loechner

I used to think the opposite of control was chaos. But it's not. The opposite of control is surrender. — Erin Loechner

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Nikki Rowe

There are some moments you won't completely heal from, those rare ones you will take torn open to the grave but throughout all the big moments that shake you up there will be countless tiny experiences that help you laugh all over again. — Nikki Rowe

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Anna White

My fear of being real, of being seen, paralyzes me into silence. I crave the touch and the connection, but I'm not always brave enough to open my hand and reach out. This is the great challenge: to be seen, accepted, and loved, I must first reveal, offer, and surrender. — Anna White

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Eve Ensler

I was always reaching for love, but it turns out love doesn't involve reaching. I was always dreaming of the big love, the ultimate love, the love that would sweep me off my feet or 'break open the hard shell of my lesser self' (Daisaku Ikeda). The love that would bring on my surrender. The love that would inspire me to give everything. As I lay there, it occurred to me that while I had been dreaming of this big love, this ultimate love, I had, without realizing it, been giving and receiving love for most of my life. As with the trees that were right in front of me, I had been unable to value what sustained me, fed me, and gave me pleasure. And as with the trees, I was so busy waiting for and imagining and reaching and dreaming and preparing for this huge big love that I had totally missed the beauty and perfection of the soft-boiled eggs and Bolivian quinoa. — Eve Ensler

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By Jennifer Lynch

464Joy is found in the breath of acceptance knowing that all is well in our world, if we surrender with grace. — Jennifer Lynch

Surrender And Acceptance Quotes By George Bernard Shaw

Marriage is to me apostasy, profanation of the sanctuary of my soul, violation of my manhood, sale of my birthright, shameful surrender, ignominious capitulation, acceptance of defeat. — George Bernard Shaw
