The Universal Agreement (Part I)
Living life beyond the need to run, search, chase and defend your position is a matter of surrendering to a universal agreement. Such an agreement recognizes your Divine Right and the Divine Right of all life to be. Chasing after, hiding under and arguing over all stem from doubting the existence of such an agreement – ultimately, it is a matter of self-doubt, needing others to approve and verify a right that is already yours. There is a missing self-value due to which a series of lessons will automatically be presented in your life. These will be as painful or painless as your impulse to surrender or resist them. The outcome will be determined by your surrendering or your resistance, your preservation or your commitment.
The pathway to mastering these relentless lessons is the pathway to true and unconditional surrender. This can be the most feared form of all surrendering, a commitment which projects life beyond “identity-fears” of self-preservation. When such a commitment is permitted, one recognizes all of one’s own connection-desires hiding behind the massive loads of self-defense. Like a fearful child behind a mother’s dress, refusing to emerge into the surrounding joy.
