‘Giving IN’ is NOT the same as ‘giving UP’. Humility, which ‘opens’ the mind, leads eventually to genuine ‘surrender’ where you put away your ‘learned-spiritual-toys’ and receive Truth through an OPEN Heart, This arises when you are ‘on your knees’ at a breaking point of ‘giving IN’, from which you can no longer ‘sedate, run or distract’. There is nothing so blind as ‘spiritual arrogance’ … that ocean of accumulated wisdom [from ‘out-there’] that says: “I know that …”. This myopic phase of ‘learned ignorance’ currently pervades spirituality and keeps Truth hidden in plain sight. It sets a stage with ‘thorny props’ and unbroken suffering in the midst of lofty phrases pontificating and show-casing the ‘ignorance’ of Real Truth.
No matter how spiritually majestic one ‘appears’, if they Truly ‘know’ Who They Really Are, they are ‘always’ on their knees in sacred humility to the grandeur of that Living Awareness.
