Most teachers of Spiritual Elevation get to it: Surrender and your life will transform.
But doesn’t Surrender mean Giving Up? ‘Cos that doesn’t sound like something I want to do. For example:
“One path we shall never choose, is the path of surrender, or submission.” –John F. Kennedy
“If you fall behind, run faster. Never give up, never surrender, and rise up against the odds.” —Jesse Jackson
In fact, we’re talking about a different kind of surrender. It’s commonplace to say; but (I have found) it can
be difficult to do. “Let Go, Let God”…”Go with the Flow”…Or:
”All of our reasoning ends in surrender to feeling.” –Blaise Pascal
One of my favourites is: “Don’t Push the River.” That comes from the patriarch of Gestalt psychology, Fritz Perls. One of the reasons I like it is that it “flows” naturally into what for me is the clearest analogy for this, the kayak and the river.
I like having a handy image that explains Surrender, as it’s something I think of a lot.
