What things? (asks the economist, student of scarcity). Here's a short list, so far:
If you have to fight to the death with your committed enemies even family like Arjuna in the Gita, surrender even there, to what? to your duty, and to whatever the outcome may be.Anyway of that there is plenty, plenty, more than plenty, that's what we have nothing much but of.
For every situation there is a wisdom to heal, to empathically warm, to turn to insight, and it's all the same wisdom: turning off the ego attribution process.
Inner surrender, so defined, in infinite forms:
- Applied to social status it becomes humility;
- applied to worries it becomes trust;
- applied to your victim story it becomes forgiveness;
- applied to the body it becomes relaxation;
- applied to work it becomes service;
- applied to action it becomes being "in the zone of effective action".
Every situation is another opportunity to attribute, but equally or better yet to not attribute, qualities to yourself. Such-and-such happens, so I choose to attribute that to me, saying, it's my story, and thus I feel I'm in this role and I have this feeling. Or alternatively I cease the OCD storytelling activity and fail to attribute a role to myself and hey that feeling wafts away in the breeze, actually I'm free, serene, blissful, even in this situation. Same thing: non-attribution-to-self = bliss (also = effective performance, since in the zone that's what's going on). Or you can think about it in terms of the application to the detailed situation, then it develops a million faces and forms for wisdom.
