SURRENDER YOURSELF IN LOVE- VALENTINE SPECIAL
So what is the problem ? why one feels so hopeless about love ?. too much ego will not allow you to love anybody: too much ego centric, too much selfish, too much self oriented, self obsessed- then love will not be possible because one has to bend a little and one has to lose one’s territory a little. One has to surrender a little in love. Howsoever little, but one has to surrender a part and in certain moments, one has to surrender completely.
To surrender to the other is a problem. You would like other to surrender to you, but the other is also in the same plight, same confusion. Two egos when they meet, try that other should surrender and both are trying the same. Love becomes a hopeless thing.
Love is not to force the other to surrender to you. It is hate that forces the other to surrender to you: that is the nature of hate, because to force the other to surrender to you is to destroy the other. it is a sort of murder. Love is to surrender yourself to the other, not because you are forced to surrender, no. it is a voluntary thing- you simply enjoy it, not that you are forced. Never surrender to anybody who is forcing you to surrender because that will be suicide. Never surrender to anybody who is manipulating you, because that would be slavery, not love. Surrender on your own and the quality immediately changes.
When you surrender on your own, it is a gift, gift of the heart and when you surrender on your own, voluntarily, simply you give yourself to the other.
Something for the first time opens in your heart.
For the first time you have the glimpse of love.....
