Surrender to grace?

Non-Christian interpretations of the saying/mantra "Surrender to Grace" - are there - if so, where? Can anyone tell me anything else about this phrase. As in depth and from as many angles and philosophies as possible.

I like the idea of the phrase, but the thought of grace meaning the fact that god grants us things even though we don't deserve it puts me off. I would like less religious and more spiritual - or any - interpretations of the word "grace" so I can view this in a different light. So, in non-christian religions - or spiritual but non-religious, OR just literary/history of the word type ways, are there any less depressing and disempowering (my views only here) definitions or explanations of the word "grace"?
PS - No offense, but please no clarifications on the Christian meaning of the word. Catholic school attendee here.
