Yoga Sutras
Sutra 2.45

samādhi-siddhir īśvara-praṇidhānāt

By total surrender to God, samādhi is attained.

Translated - Swami Satchidananda

Surrender completely to the universal consciousness or Source (Īśvara) and effortlessly attain the highest state of spiritual realisation, samādhi. This state leads to experiencing interconnectedness and oneness with all of existence. Surrendering is not about giving up or feeling powerless; it's about embracing the flow of life and allowing the universal intelligence to guide us. This guidance is always available to us. As co-creators with Source, we allow inspiration and creativity to flow through us. Our actions are guided by the wisdom of the universe, leading us to a heightened state of alignment with our true purpose. By offering our thoughts, actions, and desires to higher intelligence, we release resistance and align with the effortless flow of abundance and joy. We learn to let go and be carried by the current of well-being instead of pushing against life. Through this surrender, we experience a deep sense of peace and contentment, knowing that we are supported by the ever-present Source. In samādhi, we connect with the truth of our existence as eternal beings, transcending the limitations of the ego. We expand into the vastness of our true selves, recognising our integral part in the cosmic dance of creation. Through this connection, we become aware that we are not separate from Source, but rather, we are an extension of its infinite love and wisdom. In this realisation, we feel the joy of being in complete harmony with the rhythm of the universe.
