Surrender. So so so hard. I try every day.

I found this a few days ago, what do you think?

"Suffering is nothing but resistance to God.
The more you resist, the more you suffer.
Once you surrender to God, there is no struggle, there is no resistance, there is no suffering."

-- Don Miguel Ruiz

I'm glad you are feeling better. And I had to laugh about your Vin Diesel obsession, I had one too a few years ago. Mrowr!



It is hard to surrender the bread. But once you do it and give in, didn't it seem easier than you thought? This is what surprised me. I don't really miss it. Plus I can see more clearly the bad effects of eating it.

“Looking up gives light, although at first it makes you dizzy.”

What helps me is to surrender something for an amount of time. For instance this january I stopped drinking coffee. I loooove coffee, the smell, it early in the morning, the warm feeling when sipped. I made an aggreement with myself to stop drinking it for a month, just try it. After a month I could drink it again. Somehow this type of processing worked, and I still don't drink coffee. :)

Of course this is all not me thank goodness for that! That is a lot for one to take on, surrendering it all to our HP is a relief. It is such a huge job I would not want the responsibility.


Hi -- just wanted to stop by and let you know that I'm going to my first OA meeting tonight. Unless I chicken out.
