The Surrender Experiment

By Andrea Goeglein

Surrender experimentIt seems I finished reading the Surrender Experiment by Michael Singer just in the nick of time.  My intention was to write a blog about it.  However, before that happened I was called to practice its thesis: surrendering to the moment and yet maintain an inner state of peace.

What I have surrendered to and obviously needed to #relearn:

  • The reason you or I should not worry is because what we worry about rarely happens, and what happens we would have never thought to worry about.
  • I can be actively dying and fully alive.  With each call we have, the incredible Don’t Die spirit exhibited by Lily Salm shows me how to surrender to the moment-by-moment experience of active dying.
  • Synchronistic events at one point in life can converge again under totally different circumstances. Synchronicity is outcome neutral.
  • Incredible synchronistic events occur and incredible challenges occur. The path of all life is crooked.  The same way you cannot explain the incredible events, it can be impossible to explain the challenges.  ‘Change is the only constant’ is not a cliche.  Change, especially rapid change, is life.
  • People matter. Currently the health and well-being of #Gary Russo is unknown.  What is known is that the army of people who showed up to raise his spirits, push forward his dreams, and bask in his love of singing and smiling in 2011, have shown up in full force in this living surrender experiment in 2015

Thank you Apryl Nebozenko, David Fischer, Lily Salm, the New York City Police Department, and media new, old and social. Police Flyer Gary Russo 080715
