yield and surrender

veils are rising
I can see through the mist
loosening my grip
over life’s order.
I am no longer life’s commander.
I yield and surrender
to a gentler flow.
there is no more fear
the way ahead is clear.

Being ‘subservient’ is not the same as ‘surrendering’. The wave cannot be ‘subservient’ to the ocean, because it was never separate from the ocean. By surrendering, it gains all the power of the ocean. It is based on loving devotion, not fear and separation.

So really, it is only the mental attitude you bring along. One will make you slave, the other will make you king.
