Rising in Surrender

My dear friends,

I don't know about you, but in my experience, the world is becoming quite chaotic at the moment. Many things are falling apart, people, family, and friends are being lost, wars are waged in many countries. Yes, grief and sorrow are part of our human experience yes, but at witch degree?


Here in the northern hemisphere, it's the month to remember those who have passed away. And let me tell you, many have embarked on the long journey to the other side in the last months.


In light of all this, how can we make sense of what's happening and what we might feel we have no control over? How can we continue to love, open our hearts, come together, forgive, and rise into our truth for the sake of all beings and this beautiful Earth? These questions are here for us.


As the state of our world seems to be unraveling, it's a time to discern what truly matters. Where do we want to invest our energy, attention, and time? How can we choose what feels beneficial to create the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible?


I believe we all have the answers to these questions deep inside us. We only need to sit with them long enough for them to emerge with clarity. Even in the midst of lies, confusion, and chaos, we know. However, it takes courage, as the answers to these questions often require us to let go of what we have known in the past, our habits, social security, and unhealthy patterns.


All that happens outside reflects what's going on inside us. Where we place our attention and energy determines our reality. When we examine the wars, chaos, confusion, lies, and illusions, we can understand that all of this requires energy to manifest, and in this world, that energy is our attention, our time, our money. If we follow this energy to its source, us, we will see that it shapes the world we live in. This may sound drastic and harsh, I know. Nevertheless, it is the reality.


So, how can we change the course of events? Well, my friends, it requires courage and determination. Change necessitates a change in our actions, it’s obvious. This should happen at our own pace, doing our best, and recognizing that everything is as it should be. This is the grand surrender. Forcing change will not make it happen.


I am sharing with you some of the changes I have made in my life, and I know they have not been easy. These changes have brought me to where I am now, and I believe they contribute to the well-being of all beings. When we acknowledge the hungry ghost and stop feeding it, and when we start to nourish life, harmony, love, and peace have a place to emerge.



Perhaps some of these changes will inspire you. I would love to hear about the changes you have made, so please feel free to share them in the comments, and we can celebrate them together.


If you feel called to make any of these changes and you have questions, fears, or doubts, I will be happy to be there for you. We are all here for one another.


  1. Quitting my job sixteen years ago, not knowing how I would make a living.

  2. Selling my house, my land, and all my furniture, then traveling around the world on a pilgrimage to find myself.

  3. Letting go of friendships and social relationships that did not align with my journey and calling, holding them in my heart with love.

  4. Becoming vegetarian and then vegan, with the understanding that this would stop my contribution to the suffering and brutal killing of animals, our brothers and sisters of this Earth.

  5. Embracing and walking the Red Path of the Native Americans for over twenty years.

  6. Starting to practice Yoga.

  7. Participating in spiritual rituals and ceremonies from various traditions worldwide (such as Ayahuasca, Buffo, Kambo, Peyote, San Pedro, Rape, Sweat Lodge, Sun Dance) with the intention of opening myself and my heart, shedding layers and masks, and becoming more in harmony with Nature and Spirit.

  8. Embarking on a profound journey of healing and wholeness with psilocybin mushrooms for thirteen years.

  9. Paying off all my debts and stopping to borrow money from individuals, banks, or credit cards.

  10. Offering all of what I have received on my path, my teachings, classes, and retreats without making monetary gain for seven years.

  11. Refusing to pay government taxes, as I know that this money mainly supports big pharma, the military-industrial complex, and big tech that attempts to control all aspects of our lives.

  12. Engaging in a daily Sadhana (Yogic practice).

  13. Saying no to temptations as soon as I recognized they were not aligned with the greater good, my Dharma, truth, and clarity.

  14. Opening myself to the truth that I am more than this body, this personality, and receiving my spiritual name and nature from my spiritual family.

  15. Wholeheartedly embracing Ganja and the elixir of Soma Amrita and trusting the process of dissolving the old self to make space for my spiritual nature to manifest in this body.

  16. Letting go of all my possessions, including my sacred pipe, drum, and sacred objects, keeping only what I can carry with me: two suitcases (one for clothing, one for my Yogic altar), a Yoga mat, a guitar, and a bansuri flute.

  17. Choosing the path of Yatra Yoga as my Dharma and offering these teachings and practices to all those who feel called to them.

  18. Surrendering to this reality, knowing that I have done all I could.


That's it for now, with more to come, I'm sure in this ongoing, infinite process of life.

It's my way to rise in surrender. Knowing I can change my own action and in doing this, changing the impact I know I have. This is my way of saying no to more war, terror and injustice. This is my way of saying yes to all life, to beauty, peace, love and harmony.


Many blessings to you, In Love, in service. Krishna
