Surrender (Letting Go)
There are many paths to the river but the final step is always SURRENDER. There is no painless path to soul consciousness - the path is not through the mind. The true path is SURRENDERING TO THE HEART.
So what do I mean by SURRENDER?
It means letting go of the ego's need to protect and control.
LOVE IS THE THRESHOLD TO ANOTHER UNIVERSE - Teilhard de Chardin
Surrendering to love is much like our original birth passage - for we are surrendering to a force far greater than ourselves or our ego and its need to control. As such, Love represents another passage - the passage from ego consciousness to soul consciousness. Obviously, the experience of love is a threat to the ego for it represents realness and heart-felt feelings - which the ego was created to avoid at all costs.
THINK NOT THAT YOU CAN DIRECT THE COURSE OF LOVE , FOR LOVE, IF IT FINDS YOU WORTHY, DIRECTS YOUR COURSE - Gibran
Love is not about control - Love is all about surrender! In that regard, there are three types of relationships:
My most recent relationship was a great love in which I surrendered and virtually confronted any fear that kept me from loving that deeply and, of course, felt myself and my love expand in the process. My partner watched me surrender and swim in that river but she only got up to her knees before she went into her head, out of her heart and eventually out of the river. However, a wonderful example of surrender happened after our separation. I had a precognitive dream of her leaping into my heart and actually experienced it during a phone conversation with her, a few weeks later, while we were discussing her running towards me versus away from the relationship. We both felt it deeply and it was definitely bigger than both of us! She quickly hung up when she got another call and later disqualified the experience. I , however, totally surrendered to it and later opened my heart to her and in the process fully claimed myself and my deepest connection to source. In other words , I let go of any pride, anger or resentment and instead completely surrendered and opened my heart.
IT WAS BIGGER THAN ME!
And by totally surrendering - I now saw through clearer eyes. I saw that my partner had, once again, run away from this experience as she had run away from fully surrendering to love in our relationship. I was now free and could clearly see the real reason for our separation - she was afraid to fully love because she was afraid of losing control.
The greatest remorse is love unexpressed - it is the ultimate NO to ourselves and it takes a great toll on our inner as well as outer health. Pride, unfortunately, is the last refuge of the ego and it's constant companions are denial and resentment.
Only love truly heals for only love joins us to what is deepest within ourselves. Only by surrendering to love can we emerge from our protective and controlling cocoons of fear and claim our deepest joy as well as our part in a universal loving plan.
ONLY BY SURRENDERING TO LOVE CAN WE TAKE THE FINAL STEP AND SWIM IN THE RIVER OF SOUL CONSCIOUSNESS - THE MOTHER AND SOURCE OF US ALL.
ONLY LOVE HEALS
