When you cannot surrender,
When you cannot go beyond the feeling that
You are confined to yourself and its limited cycle,
Then a nagging sense of incompleteness is your destiny.
One remains embroiled in the constant struggle between
One’s drive for personal continuation and the world.
Recognition is possible in the midst of
Any of your habitually fixed states.
It is easy, yet paradoxical.
The paradox is that with the total surrender of the self to Self,
There arises the recognition that Self is all and that
There never was a self to surrender anything.
