Somewhere between spending slow summer days with the kids and practicing deep breathing to manage anxiety over the uncertainty in my life, I have been immersing myself into everything Michael Singer. If you don't know him, he is a self taught yogi who moved to the woods on his own to meditate, and kept finding himself in uncomfortable situations where people would come into his space and disturb him. He decided to embark on a practice of surrender - essentially saying yes to everything that came his way and figuring out how he could be okay with everything despite not choosing it.
His experiment lasted 40 years and he shares his wisdom in his books The Untethered Soul and The Surrender Experiment. If you have read these books and they spoke to you like they did to me, then you might also want to head to Sounds True and find Michael Singer's audio course Living from a place of surrender. It is 9+ hours of thought-provoking depth into the topic of how one can achieve personal liberation. As odd as it may sound, learning to rid oneself of oneself feels extremely liberating ;-).
“When a problem is disturbing you, don't ask, "What should I do about it?" Ask, "What part of me is being disturbed by this?”
“The only permanent solution to your problems is to go inside and let go of the part of you that seems to have so many problems with reality. Once you do that, you'll be clear enough to deal with what's left.”
