Make No Promises #BarAThon

Make no promises. Promises keep you focused on what your mind wants you to do.

But it is the soul that knows the path you must take and that may not be the path you promised yourself or others.

When your mind is in alignment with your soul, you are in what sports people describe as "being in the zone".

How do you bring your mind in alignment with your soul - it is only with total surrender. It is what I call going with the Universal flow.

The way I exist is to simply live each day as it comes with total surrender to my Lord Rama / Lord Krishna  knowing without a shadow of doubt that He exists with me every moment of every day. And that he guides my path and takes me where I am meant to be.

I make no promises. I just know that I am in the zone when I feel the joy and bliss.

If you must make a promise, make the promise that you will do what brings your soul joy and then surrender to it.

Two years ago I wrote a post on "Paddling Downstream" as part of the AtoZ challenge. This post gives a more detailed perspective of surrender.


“The peace of God is with them whose mind and soul are in harmony, who are free from desire and wrath, who know their own soul.” 


The senses are higher than the body, the mind higher than the senses; 
above the mind is the intellect, and above the intellect is the Atman (soul). 
Thus, knowing that which is supreme, let the Atman rule the ego.
~ Lord Krishna to Prince Arjuna, Bhagavad Gita

  11. One realizes the futility of charting out plans, plots and promises only when one understands and accepts that all our actions are orchestrated by the Supreme Being. Beautiful and liberating! Love your posts Suzy, they leave behind a sense of serenity and harmony.

  12. When every one else is making promises to themselves, make no promises feels so good.
    'If you must make a promise, make the promise that you will do what brings your soul joy and then surrender to it' - this is the advice I am taking back home. For now, the promise I have made to myself is to remain positive in whatever situation arises.
