Such Great Heights

Reason lost the battle, and all I could do was surrender and accept I was in love-

The very essences of our being lies in the ability to surrender. How often do we have to push ourselves to the limit, only to be left depleted, sore and broken? Our inane culture rewards those who go faster (amrap), hotter (vanity soaked yoga) and longer (trivial distance events). None of these are healthy to our inner selves. It’s a lie we pay forward, the way that we live.

We all have limits – Surrender to them.

Surrender to the “What If” in your life: Become fuller, more robust, richer, hardier and more open to possibility. When we surrender to the “What If, we open up spiritually and bring limitless possibilities into our lives.

Imagine your life without all the pushing, striving, soreness, sense of loss and pictures of your feet in a magenta saturated Insta-look-at-me photo. Consider a world in which you plant a seed, nurture it slowly and patiently watch it grow …

Surrender is a beautiful word (yup, a dude just said beautiful). It implies a total release to the tensions of our days. Surrender indicates acceptance, letting go no matter what is happening in this present moment.

There is no “What If” today, nothing to see and nowhere to go. Surrender.

** It’s not often I ask for frivolous favors from you. Today, I ask of you to reflect on the message above and in the very near future, re-write this post in your very own words. Not at the last-minute like myself but rather in a very personal and open way.


There are quite literally only .001% of the readers, reading this morning who know the murky behind the scenes details of CultFit. Here’s your chance to get a peek behind the curtain. This Friday the 8th of March at 6pm a few members of CultFit will attend the Buddhist Boot Camp book signing and Q&A session at The Bookworm in ‘Muricas home town: Omaha, NE. Timber Hawkeye is a brilliant speaker, writer and a breath of fresh air in today’s world.

If you would like to meet beforehand for a coffee, tea, glass of wine (<-Hint) by all means drop me an email at:

  1. I wish I was going to be in Omaha this Friday.

      I often write about a lot of silly, drab and not so conventional topics. Today, the topic of “surrender” is near and dear to me. I was that balls to the wall, careless about my family and body dude. Learning to listen and surrender has changed my life.
      Be well today!

    I love coming back to CultFit so that I can be reminded of what I tell myself I already know. Because, I think I forget this stuff as quickly as I learn it. It’s like… CultFit is my auto-focus for where ever I find myself from day to day. Ya’ dig? I wish I were in Omaha too! All of us non-Nebraskans should get together and flash mob the party.

      It’s always my pleasure to have you over! Your comment really moved me this morning, some days I feel like I am beating the same old drum, repeating the same message over and over. Maybe its because I’m a dude and that I can be pretty dense at times? That’s why I try to keep things pithy, simple and to the point.The first round is on me Friday night if you can make it over here …

    Here’s to accepting rather than fighting against my limits. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

      That little thing between our ears always wins the battle over our bodies 😉 Our mind has no limits, our bodies on the other hand … Be well today and please take care!
