When we really start to let go of the ego, old thought and emotional patterns may start to scream and feel rather painful. This makes the experience of surrender a grind – at least initially.
If we move through these moments when the ego wants to go back to a familiar pattern, then we find the peace that is often talked about by spiritual teachers like myself. If not or if we only go part way, we can get stuck in unnecessary discomfort.
Hopefully, this video can inspire you to keep surrendering to let go of whatever you are surrendering and make it through the ego grind.
