Friday, January 30th, 2015 Focus: I surrender in each moment and listen to the still, small voice within.

wow
Surrender is absolutely necessary if you are to have success on the spiritual path. But surrender has to be done with awareness and discrimination. Otherwise it may be just apathy or indifference.
I became aware, also, that unless I surrender my habitual thinking, the habitual quick response in my mind — in other words, my own mental activity — I can’t really hear what anybody is telling me. In any human relationship (not only in marriage), if you want to hear somebody, you have to surrender at that moment and really listen to that person.

If you practice that, thinking each time, “That was another little opportunity to be better able to listen to the still, small voice within, to listen to the Divine,” then surrender becomes second nature and you don’t have to make a conscious effort. You have to surrender to the Divine twenty-four hours a day. You cannot do it part time.
