To surrender means to give up our need to control every situation. Surrender means surrendering to the unseen part of our mind called higher self or inner being. Once we remember and thus realize that our higher self is the part of us which conceives our future, then we'll surrender to it and relax our need to control the outcome of every situation.
Surrendering means we realize that while we know what's wanted, we also know that it's not our job to bring what's wanted into our now experience, it's the job of our higher self. So we do our best to release worry, doubt and fear. Then we relax and enjoy our life, whilst having faith in and trust in our total being, knowing that our desires will be fulfilled.
One way to reinforce our faith and trust it is to say: I create my own experience of reality and I only want all good things in my experience, therefore, as long as I get out of my own way only good can come to me. So in truth, surrender is really surrendering to our higher vibrational self or our inner (closer in vibrational frequency to source) being.
Those who surrender, win; nobody loses: we all reach the final...

I hope I am interpreting what you are asking correctly- here goes:
There is a saying that I like: You have to surrender to win! Now, this seems a bit confusing at first. Football players do NOT win games by surrendering! Soldiers do not win wars by throwing up their hands and saying, "I give up! You win!" It is not human nature to "give up" when we are fighting a battle. We are taught to "Fight! Fight! Fight! Go! Fight! Win!"
But there are some times in our lives when we must surrender. Surrender what? Our ego! Our desire to be "the best"! Our hearts and lives, in fact...
This is what has to happen to an alcoholic when he decides to quit drinking, for example. He has to admit that his way just does not work. He is miserable. He cannot control anything. He may be on the brink of losing everything he has. The only way the drinker who cannot stop drinking has to conquer his addiction is to surrender; to admit complete defeat; to become willing to listen to the advice and counsel of other people and DO WHAT THEY SAY!!!!
This is just one example of when we must "surrender". There are other times: when we are faced with a problem, and suddenly see that we need God in our lives, for example. It is easier and faster to surrender "into" the situation, and ask for help. "E-G-O" stands for "Edging God Out".
To make a long story short, we surrender when we turn off our pride and close our mouths and open our eyes and ears. We finally see that we do NOT have any of the answers. Then, we surrender- and guess what? The Universe-God- says, "Bravo! Good Job!" and suddenly throws aid into our path like buckets of water poured onto a spot of the desert.
I hope this answer is what you were looking for! God Bless you!
Happy New Year,

In my opinion, we surrender when we have reached a crisis point in life and there is no obvious solution at hand to improve our situation.
What I mean by a crisis point is something or several things really bad has happened to us which has had a huge negative emotional and/or physical impact on us. At that point, it seems that the state we are in is going to be a permanent one and there will never be any improvement and it seems almost pointless living life any further as there does not seem to be anything good to look forward to.
I have been in one of those situations before which caused me to completely change my attitude towards and the way I live life. Before this point, although I knew about reality creation, I would find it really hard and was quite lazy to apply it to my own life. But that was an unbelievable turning point in my life where I had no choice but to tackle this issue and utilise the methods of reality creation I knew about to get myself back on track.
This helped me unburden myself of a lot of resistance I had built up over the years struggling with this issue as I had made it the biggest issue of my life. After that point, not only did I get rid of the issue but things I had wanted started to manifest in my life one after the other.
In your case, your current way of thinking might be what is acting as resistance, and if this change in way of thinking is a step towards feeling better, then you should definitely take that step. This will probably have a similar effect of releasing a lot of resistance and things you have wanted will probably start to manifest quicker in your life.

I was just about to ask this very same question :)
I would've phrased it as : "How can 'i' surrender to 'I'?". Still might ask it, we'll see.
'i' think's (hahaha) that giving UP is a clue. Like how a flame burns. It stays, relatively, in the same place but always lusting up crazily!
According to the Buddha Gautama, everything is as it should be. This seems like a possibility but 'i' doesn't want to believe it can't have exactly what it wants.
'i' thinks (HaHaHa) it knows everything, but surrendering 'i' to 'I' is surrendering to the mystery of I.
"It's alright now, baby it's all right now!"

Surrender is the gentle release of ego and allows instant manifestation of joy ... the feelings of surrender creates space for energy to flow freely within ... it is the learning to follow of a deep warm and loving light.

The courage to accept the things that you cannot change and the courage to carry on!

I am curious about who surrenders and why? What is resistance? Resistance to what? We can talk of taming the ego; or connecting with Source; or giving up. Seems to me that we hear what Source did or manifested. Our Source is not a separate thing, it is part of us.
I don't thank my hand for bringing food to my mouth. I don't pray to be one with my foot. These are parts of me, of my unity as a being.
It seems more fitting to me, that we are looking for integration, not surrender. Somewhere along the line we have separated at a conscious level. Perhaps we might more adequately define surrender as stopping the mind chatter and listening. From listening, to take a small inspired action that has abundant results. Maybe we need to get so tired from struggling that we 'surrender' and listen, maybe that is what surrendering is about?
Sometimes when we are in the middle of difficulties, it helps to stop, quieten and ask God, "What do you want me to do?" Stay in silence until you get an answer. Maybe then, you will answer your own question. Maybe the answer comes from within.
The world is run by Satan. When Adam sinned he lost the contract of the control of Earth to Satan. Do not give up! There is a book that basically says life sucks but push on anyway. The book is called "Anyway" by Kent M. Keith. This came from a simple poem he wrote while in school that Mother Theresa liked so much she put it on her wall.
It actually takes a lot for Satan to break someone enough for him/her to just give up, sadly most do surrender though. I know for me there have been times where I just felt "What is the use? I am losing going for my dreams. I surrender." There seems to come that time when we just can't take it any longer and decide to give up on our dreams...to just fit in the "rat race" like everyone else to scrape along surviving life until we eventually die.
I believe if I were God, I wouldn't wish to see my children surrender to depression and give up hope that things can be different and better! I would want my children to fight! No retreat and no surrender! So many never achieve their dreams because they surrendered to the problems and needs of life, example: "I have too many bills to pay to even think about my dreams!" This problem lasts a lifetime until eventual death.
Satan keeps attacking us to get us to that point to surrender, to break us and make us a slave to the needs of life unhappy but surviving until we die. This is being a value producer, working for someone else to fulfill that person's dreams at the cost of your own dreams. We need to keep it in mind to be the value creator! This means we end up being the ones that change the world for the better, and the world repays us kindly! We even get to the point of having others work for us! This is the freedom to have a good life that I am sure God would like to see us have, it is to stop reacting and start acting. To stop being a puppet to life and others and turn the tables to be the puppet master!
you have to surrender to the truth. because even if you deny it. it is still the truth. that you accept it or not does not change anny part to the truth. because the truth remains. you cannot shield your self to the truth for ever. eventually you need to drop those blinds in your windows of perception. if not you get confuse. the truth was always there it has respect your choice. but if you did not want to see it who can you blame?
