The Paradox of Surrender: Love is the mother energy that surrounds, supports, and maintains all dimensions and all physical reality. Like a current of light it pushes against every barrier, seeps through our closed eyes, flows around and caresses our physical form. It is present in every atom. But as long as we believe in the illusion of separation, we stand like impassive stones in the stream of Love.
Only when the Mind is willing to accept the Heart as its partner, and let go of the need to survive and protect the physical self, can a full reversal of the misguided hierarchy of domination and suffering occur. The Heart must forgive the Mind and give it Love. Without Love, the Mind cannot take the leap of faith and enter into divinity, for Love is what it craves.
The moment of surrender feels like a fall upwards. The Soul experiences an epiphany. It releases the ballast of negativity. Since it is buoyant—literally “lighter than air”—the Soul naturally rises.
Every culture describes their version of Eden as a place of peace and plentitude. This story is a universal archetype that tells us that we once lived in harmony with nature, and can do so again. All the legends agree on one thing: Eden isn’t just a legend from the remote past, Eden is our destiny.
