Some may try to make surrender another asset,
As if spirit were another tool for personal growth.
Some may see it as a way to roll with life's punches,
An end to the pain from unnecessary resistance.
Yet no matter how ego-mind tries to incorporate it,
Real surrender remains beyond the bounds of a grasping mind.
For what's given up are ego-mind's very roots,
An active work that only our awakening-self dares undertake.
