“This is the paradoxical nature of our struggle—we can’t win by fighting. The very thing that fights, that resists what is, is the thing we seek to overthrow. Only in surrender can we find victory.”
This Week’s Discussion Topic
If you’re trying really hard to act spontaneously, you’ll never succeed. That’s because, by definition, you’re not being spontaneous if you’re “trying” to do something. Your very effort gets in the way of what you’re seeking to achieve. Discuss how this scenario relates to tonight’s quote, and how true “surrender” might work in real life.
