surrender into your own ground...

“A human being 
has so many skins inside,
 covering the depths of the heart. 
We know so many things, 
but we don't know ourselves! 
Why, thirty or forty skins or hides,
 as thick and hard as an ox's or bear's, 
cover the soul. 
Go into your own ground 
and learn 
to know yourself there.” 
~ Meister Eckhart

"Soft Surrender"

"We must walk a fine line
 between surrender and engagement. 
As we individuate,
we learn to remain open 
to the nature of uncertainty in the journey,
allowing ourselves to fearlessly unfold. 
At the same time,
our active participation in the process
 functions as a kind of dialogue
between the ego and our Buddha-nature. 
We still pay the bills, do the washing up,
and take the kids to school."
