I have realised that 'surrender ' which is the cornerstone of Muslim faith is really letting go…In fact jumping off the precipice into the UNKNOWN.
Granted on the surface this appears to be anti-rational and there is undoubtedly a loss of individuality as you surrender control. However if you want to make / write history or build cathedrals or to merely live a meaningful life then you have to let the divine in…
Consequently I adore the A.A prayer:
I admit that I am powerless over my addiction I admit that my life is unmanageable when I try to control it. Help me this day to understand the true meaning of powerlessness. Remove from me all denial of my addiction.
God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Change the things I can, And the ability to know the difference...
