*"What is the surrender state? It means to be free of negative feelings in a given area so that creativity and spontaneity can manifest without opposition or the interference of inner conflict."
"If the feeling has been totally surrendered and let go, usually all thoughts associated with it will have disappeared entirely and be replaced by a concluding thought which handles the matter quickly." "The corollary to letting go of negative feelings is to stop resisting the positive ones". Letting Go, the Pathway to Surrender" David Hawkins, MD PhD. "Highly recommended reading and very complementary to this exercise. Skim chapter 20. It is over the top but most of the rest of the book is PURE GOLD. Alternate this exercise over time along with readings". Michael Grant White more about Hawkins, Letting Go and Breathing
