October 8th - Day 281
We cannot surrender but we can BE surrendered. This may look like a small distinction but it is everything. The difference between surrendering and being surrendered is that surrendering involves listening to the ego and its version of how to surrender, which is why it always asks: How do I surrender? Being surrendered is listening to the Self. To be surrendered requires no change by you. To be surrendered is simply to be surrendered and that includes being surrendered to anything the ego does.
