“I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day.”
What is surrender?
We all have an understanding or an experience of what we believe surrender is. Recently I heard a talk from Sadhguru on ‘Surrendering’ that simply made me stop and say “Yes!” that’s it.
He describes surrendering like being trapped in a prison. There is no way out. You cannot leave this prison standing. And so we have a choice. We can stay in this prison for life, or discover there is a gutter, a filthy gutter.
If you crawl through this gutter you can have freedom. It will be the most horrible filth you will ever crawl through. This filth will get up your nose, in your mouth and over every part of your body, but it doesn’t matter, because it will lead you to freedom.
Surrender is the realization, in your present form, you cannot leave this prison. And so, we must choose.
