One of my favorite authors is Michael Singer, writer of the NY Times Bestseller The Untethered Soul. Michael is pictured above with Oprah on the set of Super Soul Conversations. In a lecture I attended, Michael discussed the idea of “living a life of surrender.” He explained—the Universe has been unfolding for 13.8 billion years and will continue to unfold whether we like it or not, so why not like it! Since trying to control the world is pointless, why not focus our efforts on something we can control—like how we react to life as it unfolds. YES, we all have free will! We get to accept the natural flow of life or resist it. I will attempt to explain this often-misunderstood concept of surrender.
