The Nature of Surrender

We come here together

with the common intention

of surrendering everything as it arises

as Described by D.r Hawkins’ teaching

on the pathway to God through Truth.

We will read from his new book "Letting go: The Pathway of Surrender"

We will then follow with a brief meditation and discussion on this wonderful topic.


Spiritual work: The best thing to do is not work at it,

because it’s more like floating in air than striving.

It’s more like letting one’s self go

to become that which You are,

and you just stop resisting it.

Dr David R Hawkins, Unity Church Marin


Enlightenment is not something that occurs

somewhere in the future...

It's what Is right this instant.

As one lets go resisting it...

It’s being resisted because we are trying to control the moment.

So if we let go trying to control our experience of the moment,

constantly surrendering it...

so you live on the crest... not anticipating the next moment,

not trying to control it,

not trying to hang on to the moment that has just passed.

Let go clinging to what has just occurred,

and let go trying to control what you think is about to occur.

Dr David R Hawkins, Unity Church Marin


However it is

is however it is.

Dr David R Hawkins, Healing Nightingale Audio, Track 23


The fastest road to peace

is total acceptance

of however you are

experiencing reality

at the moment.

Dr David R Hawkins, Veritas Autumn Newsletter 2012


How long are you going to hold on to that?

I'll tell you how long to keep it –

about one second.

Let it go the instant it happens.

Just let it go.

Surrender it completely and totally to God

the instant it happens.

Why? Because you develop the capacity to do that.

So the reason for spiritual training then

is you develop a powerful capacity to let go of anything

and you never know when it's going to come up.

So-and-so just died;

you just let it go,

the minute the phone message comes in

you let it go.

Dr David R Hawkins, Devotion, Sept 02 lecture
