Taking control: Love and faith prepare the heart to surrender!



Love is one law through which we must all learn to conform to and trust the Creator to reveal their power to maintain connectivity with Him.  Faith that He knows what is best for us; ushers us into transcending peace and holistic wellness.

Love and faith defined.
Love is the positive energy that defines your spirituality; the completeness which characterize the source from which mankind comes from.  Faith is unfathomable trust and enabling mechanism that is necessary to maintain connectivity and divinity of our higher self.  Love and faith therefore co-exist to maintain access to the powerful and all knowing Creator, whose name is Love.

The concept of surrendering.
Surrendering is yielding to what is through the power of being fully present to the reality.  It is a spiritual technique that enables a person not to apply resistance because that which you resist, you attract.  This then says you maintain your power over negative circumstances through conscious application of the principle of acceptance of your environment. This does not mean allowing the negative energy to invade your inner self. It simply says you must learn to observe negativity without attaching your emotions; thus maintaining your power over such circumstances.

How love and faith apply to overcoming challenges!
Maintaining love is a personal decision.  This means not allowing anything to steal your ability to function in love and applying it in all situations. Yes, it is possible if you learn to be conscious of your driving motives.  For an example, have you caught yourself reacting to a situation?  How did you realize that you reacted and not responded to the situation? Consider the following: You are in a doctor’s waiting room with other patients, all quietly reading something. Suddenly someone pushes a door open and starts talking about the current political scandal.  You can:
a)   React by annoyingly hush that person and start lecturing him to keep quite.  The tendency is to go on to display your grievance for respecting other people’s right for maintaining their peaceful state. 
b)   Alternatively, you can respond to disturbance by looking at this person with conditional compassion:
*      He is not seriously ill and feels like talking.
*      He is not cultured and do not know how to handle public places.
*      He is not mentally well, so he could have done better!
c)    Responding denotes simply keeping your cool and not allowing any disturbance to steal your peaceful state of being (which means be- in- God).

The first two items are reactions of differing degree: The first is a clear negative reaction that shows absence of the consciousness and self control.  Reaction equates you and associates you to the scene at hand; thus reducing your ability to maintain your peace and self control.  The second is still negative reaction. The difference is that you are silently disturbed and are reacting by being judgmental.  The last state of calmness reveals consciousness which surrender to the change of environment without allowing your peaceful emotions to be altered by outside factors.  You are able to maintain peace because it is your functioning principle. It is choosing to control your thoughts for you are the only one who has access to them.

Taking control means ability to maintain your power of surrendering to circumstances through being alert to monitor the nature of your thoughts.  Ego wants to be in control by applying forceful approach to maintain its ideal environment; anything contrary tends to flip into negativity. The principle of applying unconditional love to yourself first then to others will elevate your sustainable access and connectivity to your Creator from whom your peacefulness is guaranteed.
