Where there is love there is no fear, only surrender
Surrender means an unshakeable confidence. Surrender simply means unconditional love. If you notice, when there is love, there is no fear, know it is one energy that functions in three forms, either love, fear or hatred. When there is hatred there is no fear. When there is fear, there is no love or hate.
And with all these three, the sensations in the body is at a specific place, the heart, whether you are in fear, in deep love or in hatred. And they are interchangeable. One changes into the other. You love somebody and that love slowly changes into hatred or you love something very dearly and the fear rises, thinking, “Oh, I may lose it”. Whatever you love most you hold onto. So, the same love has changed to fear.
Also, true surrender happens. If you love something, very deep, its true surrender. Surrender is not a burden, not a fear, not something which comes out of force. Only the strong can surrender, the weak can never surrender. To surrender takes great courage and power, strength and confidence. And surrender is always unconditional.
Love is a very deep, intimate phenomenon in your consciousness. It just flowers. There is no way you can meddle with it. You go near love, you dissolve, you simply don’t exist. Either you are there or there is love. Often, in conversations we say, “I love you because you are very good, I love you because you are honest” etc. You only love those qualities. Also, when we remain as a small pond, a stone can create a big ripple. But when you become an ocean, even a big mountain falling into it, does not affect it. Being an ocean, we behave like a pond – that is the wonder. You go crazy over little insignificant things and that worries you over and over again, day and night for several years. Once you are surrendered, there comes a depth in you and nothing what so ever can throw you off.
