Many do not understand what surrendering is about … most believe it is either being a subservient or compromising / sacrificing or losing self & therefore rightfully ask … Why ? Is it worth ?
Most do not understand what ‘ Surrender ‘ is . They mistake it as being subservient – secondary to some one or a forced sacrifice or an undesirable compromise ; that is why typical questions come to their minds , like : ‘ Why should I / Why should I always compromise ? ‘ , ‘ Why me , why not he /she ? ‘ . This happens because of 2 reasons
First big reason is ignorance . They miss the point that ‘ Surrender ‘ is to a cause & not to a person , hence no one really has to surrender to any one else — all should surrender to a cause … therefore the question of Why me / Why not he will disappear
Second big reason is ego . Ego prevents us from doing , what otherwise should be simple straight thinking . Till we learn to dissolve our ‘ me ‘ identity , we will not be able to think beyond ‘ me ‘ . The moment we can cross the boundary of ‘ me as someone important ‘ , we can connect with the purpose , the cause .
Have you seen sugar dissolving in a glass of milk …. What happens , the sugar disappears , but does the sugar lose its existence by that , far from it . The sugar is recognised by the taste , while it has surrendered to the cause …. You do not like milk unless it is sweet . Sugar hence has added value to the milk
Sugar is reborn , is recognised , it is discovered
Dissolving for the sugar was for connecting with a larger purpose ( making the milk sweeter for the larger society ) … it was about recognising what is a ‘ Larger Sum ‘ game , what comes first , what is that we want to achieve & therefore , what needs to be done
It is just like what JFK had once said : ‘ Ask not what a Nation can do for you , Ask what you can do for the nation ‘
For those can reach that higher level of understanding , ‘ understand ‘ what a real ‘ surrender ‘ ( to a cause ) is … it is applicable in any potent relationship : Motherà Child , Husband à Wife , Employee à Organisation , Citizen à Nation
Do you have it in you to discover yourself by dissolving yourself
Do you want to be the Sugar who chooses to discover itself through Dissolving or would you be the sugar which chooses not to dissolve in the milk to ‘ protect its identity ‘ ? – You have a choice
That Sugar , which is transactional , will always ask : ‘ What is in it for me ? ‘ , ‘ why should I do it ? ‘ ‘ Why should I ( always ) sacrifice ? ‘ … this sugar never realises its full potential , because to protect its ‘ identity ‘ it will never make a milk sweet
That Sugar which connects with the larger purpose , attains ‘ Nirvana ‘ … she is the one who is fulfilled , having reached its full potential & adding joy to larger community … it hardly matters whether she is ‘ seen ‘ — she is always there !
