I am learning to live between effort and surrender.
I do my best and hope for what I want,
but I do not resist the direction of the wind.
Through surrender, I move from
outer turmoil to inner peace.
By letting go of expectations and outcomes,
I transform a painful experience
into a positive, fruitful endeavor.
When fear gets the best of me,
I surrender to love.
When I release my resistance to love's presence,
I am able to receive what I need--
what's trying to come into my life,
for my highest good.
