Surrender of the Ego


from Priya   
      In surrender to God, it is not the ego that surrenders what it 'has' to God who is "outside." God is the totality; the ego is an apparent divider in it. When the totality is real-ized, the ego is absorbed into it. The totality cannot be conceived of by the mind. That which 'is-was-will be' cannot be comprehended by the mind (which functions in time) and can only comprehend what is in the present, or remember the past, or imagine the future. God alone is: the real-ization of this truth is the surrender of the ego.
