Surrender carries another great advantage. Besides allowing the drop to experience the reality of the ocean (I love the analogy), it also takes a great weight off of one's shoulders. Instead of using my life energy to constantly defend and reiterate the parameters of my individual being, I can "let go" of that effort. What a relief!
Dear Kate , Thank you for sharing your thoughts on surrender. To learn to completely let go is a work in progress as we are holding on to things not only in our active level of being but also in the subconscious many of which are inherited.. but the effort to let go can be huge relief as you rightly shared!
