Surrender: Zen meaning
Surrendering has many negative attributes:
As far Zen is concerned, to surrender means something entirely different, if not, the opposite
It does not mean to give up whatever situation you find yourself in, and to do nothing about it.
To surrender is the simple but profound wisdom skill that Zen called “yielding “ rather than resisting, especially when there is nothing you can do about it ……..which is most of the cases.
Surely you will hurt your ego, and creates temporary suffering from the frustration of surrendering but yielding to the situation which means accepting what you don’t want to accept represents a giant step towards serenity. Surrendering is an integral part of Awakening. Thanks
