Linda Adsetts and The Group are here with their weekly Go for the Joy message. Enjoy!
The best moments I have had are when I surrender to the moment. They are those times when I am fully immersed in the moment.
Often, I have had to consciously set aside my fears and/or my thoughts in order to do that and when I do time stops briefly. I find myself resting, in a place of allowing for whatever reveals itself.
It can be a moment of insane laughter, allowing it to bubble up unedited by what people may think. That usually happens when I think of something so witty that I am laughing with the delight of the unexpected wittiness that shows itself. I am not someone who is quick with repartee and so when it happens I can be found gasping with laughter unable to deliver said wittiness. It can look a little crazy!
It can be the moment that I allowed myself to be with my husband; totally in the physical moment-skin to skin-breath to breath-heart to heart that creates a magical coming together of two lovers.
It can be the moment when I slipped into the ocean for some snorkeling, ignoring my fear of deep water and finding myself surrounded by multi colored fish looking back at me. I was exhilarated. I was a mermaid! I could breathe underwater. I may have even imagined I had a tail!
It can be that moment where I was faced with an angry husband. It wasn’t one of his better days. He felt like life had been beating him up and I said something that sounded like more of that to him. I surrendered into the moment. It wasn’t about me. I didn’t resist it by making him wrong or me wrong. I just let him vent. The moment quickly passed and soon after I received an apology.
All of those moments had a commonality. I wasn’t thinking. I was in allowance for whatever showed up. My goal is to have more of those kinds of moments, those moments of surrendering into life. They are the moments that make my life worth living.
But, in order to surrender I really have to stop being in judgment of myself. I have to stop thinking for however a brief time. I have to just be. Isn’t that what surrender is all about just being in the moment and allowing for what might reveal itself? It may be that tears show up or anger or acceptance or joy. None of it need be judged. It just is.
But, unless I surrender into what is there I will never know what lies within.
Dear ones, we are pleased with Linda’s examples and we know that in the writing of those moments she understood and she felt those moments again. As she is off on new adventures we know that she will be carrying the surrendering process forward with her and we are eager to see what will reveal itself to her.
Everything is there for each of you, whatever you have dreamt of and some of it you may never see until you allow yourself to surrender into whatever moment you will choose. We would tell you that if you tried for 25% of each day, consciously, surrendering into what is before you, you would be far ahead of most of those on your planet. And we know that it can seem frightening sometimes as you face someone’s anger or sadness but how about you practice first with something easy? How about you surrender into eating your favorite food? How about you surrender into a hug with a loved one? How about you surrender into the feeling of the sun on your face?
Start small and let those moments add up to something more and then try surrendering into your fear. Try surrendering into a reaction you are faced with. You will find that it wasn’t as bad as you made it out to be. It is the resistance to life that creates problems on your planet.
Allowance of life simply grows the good stuff. You begin to find the innate joy of your being as you allow yourself to simply be. Set aside your judgments of yourself and others-set aside those thought that may not serve you very well-you know the ones-they don’t feel very joyous, do they?
And so dear ones, sweet ones, how we love to see that conveyed to you! You are each of you magnificent beings of light and love-you are-you are! Isn’t it time to surrender into that?
