Letting Go of Control

I came across these wonderful quotes recently, and found them to be especially relevant for these trying times - when it seems that we are constantly being reminded that we are most certainly not in control...

"The world is not to be put in order;
the world is order, incarnate.
It is for us to harmonize with this order."
- Henry Miller

"It is not action or effort that we must surrender;
it is self-will, and this is terribly difficult.
You must do your best constantly,
yet never allow yourself to become involved
in whether things work out the way you want."
- Ekanath Easwaren

"True spiritual surrender responsibly
opens itself to the unknown."
- Stephen V. Doughty
