In spirituality, it is frequently said that surrender is vital for awakening. Yet people often want to know, “What are we surrendering to?” As Mukti explains, embedded in this question is the paradigm of duality, an agenda to surrender to “other.” In this talk that begins with a guided meditation, she points to the essence of real surrender. When all our seeking and agendas are allowed to naturally settle, our true ever-present being comes clearer to the surface and we can see how surrender is already expressing in every moment.

“The mind can become so center stage that it can divorce us from life.”
“We are not simply our experience; we are ever-present to all experience.”
“As seeking falls away, we see that the sense of what we’ve always wanted is our very own self.”
“Surrender is a knowing of being, not a knowing of thought.”
