Blunt Force Truth: Surrender does not mean defeat. To surrender one’s ego does not mean that you abolish the ego or love its gifts any less. This is the beauty of letting go. In doing so, you become free. First, love yourself. Realize that the ego brings up feelings for healing. With love and gratitude, trust this process. Now view the process from a different point of view as you step out of your 1st person frame of reference. This is dissociation. Notice how you no longer have attachments as you see, hear, and feel from your expanded perception. That’s what surrender is!
