It’s all about acceptance by Sudha Umashanker

This year’s mantra…. Acceptance and surrender

A very pithy pearl of wisdom that I came across recently reads thus, “What screws us up most in life is the picture in our head of how things are supposed to be.” How true I thought!

 

 

Acceptance and surrender

“A Prayer of Surrender”:

Father, I abandon myself into your hands; do with me what you will. Whatever you may do, I thank you: I am ready for all, I accept all. Let only your will be done in me, and in all Your creatures – I wish no more than this, O Lord. Into your hands I commend my soul; I offer it to you with all the love of my heart, for I love you Lord, and so need to give myself, to surrender myself into your hands, without reserve, and with boundless confidence, For you are my Father. Amen.

Charles de Foucauld
(1858-1916)

Aka acceptance & surrender… Carry the Cross & the Cross will carry you
