Rev Patti Paris- “To The Moments”

We must surrender completely to the moments as they pass, by releasing the judgement of good or bad events. Pain brings us into the present moment, but that`s no way to live. We can make the choice to have nowhere else to be, to be with what is before us, fully aware, always.
Time is a human construct. We know this because we can alter the flow of time in our experience. Being in love, we can miss hours of the clock as our hearts and minds are fully engaged with someone. We can do this anywhere.

Alan Olson, RScP - “Surrendering Stress As A Choice”

Stress can cause any number of physical ailments, it is a western plague. We must remember that stress comes from impatience, a sense of "doingness" where we feel out of control. In that mind set we often blow the moment, and our day passes us by unfulfilled.
We must be at choice in our decisions. We can choose to use traffic or waiting in line as a time for quality time: listen to a book on tape, engage in a conversation, contemplate our spiritual hero`s activities and how we would emulate them. We can choose fulfilling experiences, when we know we are at choice.

Rev. Patti Paris - “Surrender, Don’t Give Up”

Surrender, is not quitting. Giving up means there is no hope for future growth. Surrender opens the door to unlimited possibilities.
We live as if we are in control, but we must remember, we are not in charge. We can select our clothes, and our plan for the day but the weather, and other people, this we cannot control. And when the outcome does not match the plan, we can get crazy trying to regain the illusion that we are in charge of the whole situation. Surrender is trusting the Universe has our backs.

Rev. Patti Paris - “To A Greater Good”

Surrender is not failure, it is allowing a greater idea the room it needs to come forth. We must let go of the smallness of who we thought we were, or who others told us we were, of what we think is possible. Give up those "lesser" thoughts, and be open to a greater expression of the Divine Life through us!
We can eliminate that which is no longer needed, which no longer serves, or was never true to begin with, and transform out lives into something better. We are called to know our Wholeness in the tension of dualism; where we know of ourselves as Spirit, and walk in this world.
