This meditation is perfect for me. I am forever trying to control everyone and everything - it's just my nature. I need to work on this.
The essence of surrender is a recognition that you can't control everything. In fact, there is very little you can control. Give up trying to control everything and you will feel a giant weight fall off your shoulders. Give up some of your worries to your higher power, your inner sense of wholeness, the deeper self that has intuitive wisdom and perfect peace.
Say to yourself: I am part of a whole that is larger than me and also present in me.
