Surrender to what’s here

 

Here is one form of surrender, which I am (again) exploring more intentionally as part of the Living Inquiries.

Notice what’s here. Bring your attention to the sensations in your body. Notice the area of most tension. Allow the sensations to be here. Notice they are already allowed. Feel the sensations, as if the sensations feel themselves.

Notice the sounds, coming and going. Words coming and going. Images coming and going. Notice the space it’s all happening within.

Notice the sensations, feel them as if it’s for the first time.

This is a surrender out of being caught up in words and images, and into sensations and whatever else is here. It’s a surrender out of identification with words and images, and their identities and viewpoints, and into noticing words as words, images as images, and sensations as sensations.

It is, in a way, the simplest form of surrender. And it can be supported by the Living Inquiries, looking at how words, images and sensations are “glued” together, and how this loosens when each is examined in turn.
