Forget about surrender! Just know that there is one power which is in control of everything. Seasons are not in your control; the earth moving around the sun and all the planets moving in their orbits are not in your control. Every element on this planet has its own laws within which it functions, all of which are not in your control.

There is a natural law, a power that is in total control of everything, which gives you some control to do certain things. It is like the pilot of the plane is controlling the plane, but inside the plane you can get up, use the washroom, sit or stand. There is little freedom for you too. Similarly, we have our responsibilities; we perform them to our optimum. We take responsibilities; do what we need to do knowing well that the plane is being steered by a good pilot.

Surrender is not an act. Actually the word surrender has lost all its meaning. Just be aware that there is a bigger mind, a bigger self, a bigger intelligence which is at work.

Importance of Spiritual Practice

When prana level is low - you feel upset, angry, dejected and not so good. When prana level is even lower - you feel life is not worth living. When prana level is normal - you feel yourself, like a normal human being. When prana is a little higher than normal - you feel more creative, enthusiastic, and joyful. And if it is even higher, you realize something much deeper.

Sadhana, the spiritual practice, is meant to increase this prana level in you. If your prana level is constantly high - then you don’t need to do sadhana - that is what is enlightenment; your optimum prana.

I remember an elderly gentleman, some 40 years back, asked me, "Are you tired? You must be tired!" There was an 86 years old gentleman with me, he pounced on the person, suddenly saying, "Come on! A yogi will not get tired!" That is true! Tiredness is when our senses go outward; the moment the senses start turning inward, we are tapping into the eternal source of energy.

First, never step on the emotions of a woman. Second, encourage womenfolk to step out of their routine and comfort zone. Third, encourage some creativity and some acts of kindness. Four, let them take some time off to be quiet, and observe nature.

We all take time off and go on vacation, but talking too much and talking all the time spoils the whole vacation. You come back tired, tanned and tired. Sometimes, one needs to take some time off to be quiet and spend a few moments in silence; meditate, and be with nature.
