Surrendered Souls - an essential subject
J. W. Goethe, one of the biggest philosophers and poets of modern times said: “the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.” Nothing propels us better along the path of spiritual life as completely surrendering God and His pure devotees. To become a surrendered soul will bring us immediate victory as we will receive all the blessings we need and all the knowledge, strength and protection will flow our way.
For surrendered souls the reservoir of knowledge is wide opened - The Supreme Lord, as the object of their love and sole shelter will reveal Himself according to the level of their commitment and faith. Surrender is not an act of passivity or lethargy but a conscious informed decision to accept and embrace our constitutional position as eternal servants of the Supreme Lord, who is always ready to protect His surrendered souls.
