Surrendering the body

Student:
I have a question about surrender. Actually what surrender is and what it isn’t. It seems to me it is somehow… it is not the surrender to the situation, but to the Truth of the situation, which may in some sense sometimes require total letting go and sometimes igniting the warrior…

Aisha:
From what you’ve said, I have two things specifically that I want to point out. One of them being you saying this about, that surrendering is surrendering to the Truth of the situation. And basically I would say that the Embrace of Truth is all about surrender: surrender like this (Aisha makes a gesture lifting her arms up and bending backwards), surrender to Nothing, surrender to Love, surrender to Humanness, surrender to Earth, like surrender to each other, like the whole thing.

But specifically the key that you need right now is around the fact of surrender – is there is a specific kind of surrender that you don’t know yet. And it’s that surrender of your body. Because surrender to a situation, you are still with the controller, which then can apply whatever it knows in a situation or allow and so on and so forth. But there is a surrender of your body, which allows the birth of the action body. And that’s the kind of surrender, which is invited or which is the most beneficial application of yourself in sitting in these meditations. Because that is that, which doesn’t separate the surrender through your cells from you surrendering as consciousness.

The thing is that I can only give you words right now. My Being has been showing you this the whole week. That kind of surrender, which is not about surrendering to the Truth of the situation and which is not about surrendering into these forces, but that, which is present here as these forces and which is that radiation out as these forces. So that happens through a specific surrender, which is combined with your body. So it’s a surrender of yourself on a bodily cellular level. And of course I cannot explain this to you.

But you have to keep on asking yourself that question until this unbuttons. Because it is a part of exactly what we’ve been discussing over the last few days in Satsang. And it is something that you really seek the answer to this because it’s one of the places that you know, this kind of surrender and that kind of surrender and so on. But this one brings all of them together.

Student:
Can you suggest me how to support the evolution of this, just being still with this or …

Aisha:
No, because that’s exactly the point that you have surrendered in this direction, that direction, that direction, but surrender, which is not about a direction is surrender to Being. So that’s the key that you need: being.

Student:
I felt a strong need to dive very sharply into my psychology and all these wounds. To do the healing and so on.  It was a very strong impulse to … like I have to dedicate myself with much greater precision, like a surgery

Aisha:
Yeah, yeah. Ok. So you are telling me about this point, and this point has tried going in this direction and that direction and that direction. And ok, now I’m really confused, so I have to sharpen up even more, like the point getting even more pointy. But what it needs is this (Aisha makes and expanding gesture with her hand): its own relaxation into Being.

Student:
I think I get this, thank you very much.
