The Paradox of Surrender

…the mind’s stopping is absolutely good news. Deep inside you already know this, you just can’t quite believe it is true, because you don’t understand it. And you want to understand it, so that you will then have control over it. […] At a certain point you recognize that you don’t understand a thing, and you experience a moment of surrender. The paradox is that as soon as you surrender the need to understand, you do understand. And the moment you think you do understand, you don’t understand.
