Surrender is True Freedom

“I am free and that is why I am lost.”  Franz Kafka

 

I can choose to do what I want because I am free.  This can get me into all kinds of trouble.  When left to my own instincts, desires and devices I try to make things mold to what I want.  This has left me quite lost and unhappy.  I know the desires of my heart, but I can’t fight my God or the Universe.  Life is going to happen to me in spite of myself.  True freedom is the surrender that I logically know this and accept this.  Today I have clarity and I am healthy enough to know that if I continue to work daily to do the next right thing which leads me to a pretty good place.  My by product is contentment, lack of chaos, happiness and I don’t feel so lost.  My path continues to be clearer to me.
