“The Surrender Experiment” is a fascinating, true story of Michael Singer’s life. After a spiritual awakening he decided to surrender to whatever life brought his way. Sometimes he did not want to do what came his way, but, he made a commitment to accept what life brought him. And what came his way was pretty amazing. Some of the experiences were nothing short of miracles.
Michael founded a spiritual community near Gainesville, Florida. It currently sits on over 600 acres of forest and meadows. The Temple of the Universe has daily mediation services in the morning and evening. Michael also gives lectures on a weekly basis. He made a pledge to “stop the chatter in his mind” and to begin “the surrender experiment” with his life.
He developed a medical practice accounting software from his place in the woods and it turned into a billion dollar company. The people and events that came to him at just the right time is remarkable.
Reading this book may have you change the way you look at your life and the experiences that it brings. You may decide to just go with the flow.
An excerpt from the book:
“One thing is for certain: he who left on this journey-never returned. The flow of life had served as sandpaper that, to a great extent, freed me of myself. Unable to unbind myself from the incessant pull of my psyche, in an act of sheer desperation, I had thrown myself into the arms of life. From that point forward, all I did was my very best to serve what was put in front of me and let go of what it stirred up within me. Joy and pain, success and failure, praise and blame-they all had pulled at what was do deeply rooted within me. The more I let go, the freer I became.”
I received this book from Blogging for Books in order to write this review.
