#Surrender doesn’t depend on the object, it is a quality that you bring into your #being. To whom you surrender is irrelevant.

Any object will do. You can surrender to a tree, you can surrender to a river, you can surrender to anything, your wife, your husband, your guru.
Even through stones, people have attained because it is not a question at all to what you #surrender.

You surrender, and that brings the whole thing, that opens the door. Surrendering, the effort to surrender brings an opening to you.
If you are open to stone, you become open to the whole existence, because it is only a question of opening. How can you be open to a stone, and not open to a tree?
Once you know the opening, once you enjoy the euphoria that it brings, the ecstasy that happens just by opening to a stone then you cannot find such a foolish man who will immediately close to the remaining #existence.
In the beginning, one surrenders to something and then one is surrendered to all.

That is the meaning, that if you #surrender to a #master, in the #experience of surrendering you have learned a clue; now you can surrender to all. The master becomes just a passage, a door.
Remember, you cannot find God to surrender to, but many people think that way; they are very tricky people. They think, “When God is there, we will surrender.” Now, this is impossible because God is there only if you surrender.

#Surrender makes anything #God.
But of course, there are problems. You cannot so suddenly surrender to stone because your mind goes on saying, “This is just a stone - what are you doing?”. Then you cannot surrender, because #surrender needs your #totality.
Hence the significance of a #master. A master means somebody who is standing on the boundary of the #human and the #divine. One who has been a human being like you but is no more like you - something else has happened - one who is a plus, a human being plus.
It is difficult to #surrender to a stone, to a river, very, very difficult. Even to surrender to a master is so difficult. Whenever you see a #master, then again your #mind says that this is a human being like you, so why surrender to him?
Seek a #master, #surrender to a master. Be attentive to him. Listen, watch, eat and drink him. Let him enter you, allow your heart to be filled with him.

Soon you will be on a #journey because the object of the #attention ultimately becomes the #goal of your life.
Surrender is the method to let go of your #ego, your #will. Unless you have a properly developed #mind you cannot enter into the state of no-mind. Unless you have a well-formed and mature ego you cannot surrender.
#Surrender needs tremendous #courage, it is not for weaklings.

Surrender is the last and the greatest act of #will. Surrender is not #impotence. It is not something that because you cannot stand you surrender; because you were already falling you say, “Okay, I surrender”
#Ego needs continuous fight because it feeds on a fight. The more you fight, the stronger your ego becomes. It is a fighter. That’s why surrender is so #difficult. Surrender is the door to #bliss, to #beauty, to the #truth, to #love, to #life, to #God. Surrender is the door.
You cannot learn #surrender. If you can do it, you can do it, and there is nothing more to it.

Surrender means you are feeling that you are not #capable of doing anything, so you surrender but with certain #awareness. Surrender needs strong, absolutely strong #souls.
It will take a long time and a long struggle for the Western #mind to #surrender, but once the Western mind surrenders, then there is nothing like it.

The Eastern mind has to be brought up; the #ego has to be ripened and matured. Only when the ego feels too heavy, it is possible
Two lovers dissolving into each other is also an example of surrender. But these are small surrenders, indicative only, fingers pointing to the moon.

The ultimate #surrender is your #individuality moving into the #universality. You are #becoming part of the whole.
To #surrender to the other is the problem. You would like the other to surrender to you, but the other is also in the same plight.

Two egos, when they meet, try that the other should surrender, and both are trying the same. #Love becomes a #hopeless thing
When you #surrender on your own it is a gift, a gift of the #heart. And when you surrender on your own, voluntarily, you give yourself to the other; something for the first time opens in your heart.
In #meditation, #surrender happens, surrender to the whole. Not to any idea, not to any idol, but to the whole.

Not surrender to Krishna or Christ, but to the whole of existence. Nothing is excluded; everything is included in it, which we call the #universe.
#Surrender is the secret of #knowledge because surrender is the secret of #love and love is the only knowledge of worth.

Your love is your #destiny. Love something superb, love something of the supra-existence, love something of the #divine, and you will find your way.
#Surrender will help #freedom, and freedom will make you capable of surrender. Don’t choose one otherwise you will remain half.

If you have inner light then there is no fear in surrendering because #fear comes only because of the #ego.
