All life, within the greater game at work, is an interplay of Command and Surrender. Command and Surrender is the ability to make clear deliberate choices and be open to all the possibilities of what can progressively unfold from it. It’s knowing when to move, when to do, and when to rest, and when to be. It’s knowing when to persist along a specific path and when to adjust and adapt. There’s a discipline and a flexibility in flow. Mastering this beautiful relationship of energy creates a harmonious movement along the process of life, witnessing the manifestation process unfold at a rapid rate, and in effortless fashion.
To understand Masculine and Feminine energy is to understand the command and surrender dynamic, recognizing how both are important elements in a life of creative expression and ultimate fulfillment. This is essential for another topic of discussion, yet was a pertinent reference to make for the moment.
There is an important distinction to make when it comes to command in regards to the idea of control, and to surrender in regards to the idea of submission. Command is the ability to take the lead or guide with all that is present, like the driver of a car or captain of a ship. We can guide and steer the car or boat, yet have no control over the road or ocean. When it comes to our lives, in truth, we are in command of everything yet in control of nothing. We have our ability to choose in every moment. For that which we have no control do we surrender to the process. Surrender is an allowing to unfold, an allowing to reveal in patience that which comes with the journey of any creative process or life development. Submission is the relinquishing or quitting of one’s own personal power or ability to move or figure out other possibilities.
The difference between these choices is vast in relation to choosing a life of empowerment. Utilizing the dynamic of command and surrender in efficient and intuitive fashion is the mark of one who is masterful in their own creatorhood. All things in life have rhythm, a natural flow in cycle. As this energetic function becomes more understood, it can be utilized to move in life with less stress, more coherence, and a greater sense of freedom to explore and reveal toward all greater accomplishments.
