    yes. this is the fundamental teaching.

    when your spiritual intuition is active - you dont have to fight or struggle. you just flow...

    this is why people of color (black, indian etc.) taught the need for every person to establish a guru/student relationship, so that you learn to surrender here and gain the guidance of someone that has successfully done so, that you might eventually learn to surrender to your spirit.

    I wonder why the OP was deleted.

    (At any rate, I'll be back to read in full.)

    But just from the title, and from CherryBlossom's approval;) , I can see what was said must be something to hold onto.

    Surrendering to the will of the Father is what must be done so that our lives be salvaged in the faith of the One who sacrificed for our sins. Being humble in the Spirit to the One who has created all is wise, and the Son who was resurrected the 3rd day by our Father has taught us why this is so. We need only believe His Word, obey His commandments, have faith in His Way, and keep His Holy works, and the victory will be ours to hold. Blessings!
