Sitting In SurrenderSitting in surrender is a sublime thing to do. First you close your eyes and begin to breathe consciously, slowly and deeply.
You witness your thoughts as they arise and fall away. No clutching at the contents of consciousness....open the fingers of finite thought. Let worry fall away.
Buddha-mind can be experienced only in the now. The Christ-consciousness is the same yesterday as it will be tomorrow and is now. The Eternal Now is the same as Buddha-mind.
Nirvana, bliss, the kingdom of heaven--all within the witnessing self seated in surrender. It is too easy to be accomplished without great resolve. It is said that the great way is not difficult for him who has no preferences. I might add this. No self, no preferences.
Sitting in surrender you will be present in presence. Gifts will arrive from the magi of the moment--peace, bliss, and all the hell realms will offer themselves to you.
Who would want the hell-realms? Only the ego wants those, so if they are offered to you, just continue to sit.
Sooner or later the hell-realms wear themselves out. But peace is permanent.
Sitting in surrender I learned the truth of my being. It is unlimited peace surrounded by limited angst. Once you know how to get to peace, you will be willing to let the angst go. Persevere in peace. Persist in its protection. Surrender into the power of now.
