How to Act

If you believe that laying down arms is the only way to surrender, you’re not getting the whole picture.

We get this concept confused when it comes to others’ behavior. Their behavior may be wrong, unethical, criminal, unjust, or simply not what we would do. Humans are difficult to live with. At times it seems that it would be easier if we ran the show, but trust me when I say it would get tiresome.

The work of surrender is not blind compliance, not condoning wrong action, but acknowledging what is. It is a solemn “yes” to the mad meal life has served us.

Look around — there’s no manager to speak with about the bad service we get, except for the manager within. This one is equipped with the tools to determine right action, but it needs the facts.

Surrender — another word for witnessing the truth of a situation — shines naked light on the available options. Laid bare, we can see what our integrity asks us to do.
