When we worry about a problem that we are having, we are unable to bring our attention to the present moment because we believe that our worrying will somehow solve our dilemma. We make lists of "pros" and "cons" and try to figure out the best answer to our problem.

However, when we surrender our thoughts and worries, and bring our attention to the present, we align ouselves with Universal Intelligence. Once we are in harmony with Universal Intelligence, the best course of action will present itself, without thought or worry. Often, one decision makes us feel nervous and unsure, while the other brings conviction and a sense of calm. Sometimes the best course of action is the less obvious one.

Let's surrender to Knowing.

Happiness does not exist without unhappiness. Satisfaction does not exist without frustration. The everyday ups and downs of our lives continue until we stop and realize that there is another way. There is a never ending joy that we can experience that is between and beyond thought.

All of our unhappiness comes from thought. All of our frustration comes from thought. All of our neuroses comes from thought. We cannot stop thinking. However, we can stop our compulsive and destructive thinking by bringing our attention, without judgement of any kind, to our thoughts, our emotions, and our actions.
Let's surrender to joy
