Treasures: 'If I cannot do it, how is surrender going to happen?'

If I cannot do it, how is surrender going to happen?

“I cannot explain it to you, I can only indicate a few directions. In the morning when the sun is rising, just sit silently on the riverbank. Watch it. Doing nothing, just sitting silently, watch it. And some time in some blissful moment it will happen: there will be no observer, and nothing observed. The observer becomes the observed. It is not that you are separate from the rising sun – you are it.

“Sitting by the tree, just close your eyes, feel the tree. Hug the tree, just be one with it, as if you are with your beloved. And sometimes... and it is not predictable; I cannot say that it will happen each time. Only once in a while it will happen – because it has to happen in spite of you, that's why only once in a while…

“Be in relaxation a few moments. It can be any kind of situations – swimming in the river, relax with the river, or sunning on the beach, relax with the sun – anything. Life is full of opportunities. Remember Atisha. He says life is full of opportunities, life is the opportunity. Don't wait for the opportunity, the opportunity is already here.

“But you will have to learn a totally different kind of consciousness – not that of a doer, but that kind of consciousness which is simply existing... that simple consciousness, innocent.”
