In surrender we must relinquish what we want entirely and let life-force have it’s way. Surrender brings destruction in the fullest sense of the word. Then, if all goes well regeneration follows bringing us into conscious alignment. Razor’s edge living. Razor’s edge healing. Read: Surrender

Anyone who has done any amount of serious meditation will have come to know that we don’t control our thoughts. We don’t control our thoughts or our feelings. Of course, that doesn’t stop us from trying! Read – “Change your thinking, change your life.” ha ha – our mind is a wild monkey gym
