The Red Flag of the White Flag

by | Nov 8, 2021 | Freedom, Journal, Surrender, Wisdom Bites | 0 comments

Surrender is a white flag that raises a ton of red flags.

We are taught to defend at all costs. We are taught that letting our guard take a break leaves us at risk. Yet we are never taught that keeping our shield up all the time keeps the good stuff out too.

Of course we don’t open when there is danger present. We don’t use this golden gift foolishly in front of someone who cannot see its worth. But we practice so when it is safe, we are ready. We do it behind closed doors. In the dark. With tears, with joyful dance, with breath.

When we find safe surrender, we find that the only thing that loses power in this state is the ego. And that’s a good kind of loss.
