Self-Surrender

They think self surrender means to say, "I have no mind. I have no heart. I only believe and follow, for I am nothing."

This is not self-surrender — this is denial of the truth. For it is saying there is a place where G–dliness cannot be —namely your mind and your heart.

G-d did not give you a brain that you should abandon it, or a personality that you should ignore it. These are the building materials from which you may forge a sanctuary for Him, to bring Divine Presence into the physical realm.

Don't run from the self with which G-d has entrusted you. Connect your entire being to its Essential Source. Permeate every cell with the light of self-surrender.
