Some of the most misunderstood states are surrender, defencelessness and admitting powerlessness over a compulsion (addiction). These states are the vital steps to reaching heights of personal enlightenment. In achieving such states we gain the fulfilment we crave, giving us the serenity to deal with internal and external conflicts.
Surrender means accepting that I am who I am and
need not fight to control challenging behaviour
instead I get smart about how to handle the situation!
defencelessness similarly means I am prepared to
be open to seeing things in a different perspective and
does not mean I have to abandon myself but rather
negotiate for meeting my needs!
admitting powerlessness over my compulsion to do
self sabotaging actions gives me
the ability to hand over my will to experienced others so
that I find recovery and serenity!
