Surrendering to Divine Will

October 9, 2009 by Andrew Baerthel

Swami RadhaIn the first part of this two part video series, Swami Radha discusses the subject of Surrender. “Every one of us, no matter what our possessions are, we have to surrender to life itself.” We have to begin with self control and awareness, to ask ourselves if we surrender to our emotions and self will? In this way, we begin to expand awareness and use the power of choice.

In her book, Kundalini Yoga for the West, Swami Radha poses several questions regarding surrender. Over the next week, you may reflect on surrender and ask yourself:

Is my self-will behind the ego? Can I discriminate between self-will and surrender?

  1. Divine Light should be evermost in our thoughts.When I am practicing the Divine Light Invocation, the precious gift of out dear Swami Radha, I am in direct contact with the Divne: I am occupied in the great work of ontology, the science of being. When I am not actively practing the Invocation, I am enjoying and relying upon the attributes and energies of Divine Light. For me, the Divine Light Invocation is a two-fold experience, the substance of spiritual cause and effect. Swami Radha brought me into Light. I am ever grateful. I had been living in shadows.

  2. This is a wonderful talk! Surrender as the way to yield God’s will. It clarifies that tricky process of leaving self-will behind.
