WHAT IS DEVOTION/SURRENDER?
Freedom does NOT depend on:
-complicated practices and disciplines
-elaborate costumes or clothing
-rituals, mantras or incantations
-beliefs of ‘any’ kind
-accumulated knowledge or great intellectual ability
-years of training under so-called gurus or masters
Freedom requires ‘only’ a steady, persistent focus on ‘IT’.
Whatever has your undivided ATTENTION – ‘expands’! Then … whatever is required ‘for’ that expansion and the desolation of the clouds of conditioning that seem to hide the ever-Present existence ‘of’ Freedom – simply shows up.
This is called Devotion or Surrender.
