Abstract

What have I come to mean by surrender as of now? Seminally I mean by it cognitive love: whatever other meanings it may have flow from it. Among them are total involvement, suspension of received notions, pertinence of everything, identification, and risk of being hurt.1 To surrender means to take as fully, to meet as immediately as possible whatever the occasion may be. It means not to select, not to believe that one can know quickly what One’s experience means, hence what is to be understood and acted on: thus it means not to suppose that one can do justice to the experience with one’s received notions, with one’s received feeling and thinking, even with the received structure of that feeling and thinking: it means to meet, whatever it be, as much as possible in its originariness, its itself-ness.
