Courage and Willingness are Primary Qualities

The Continuous Act of Surrender and Letting Go
We can only be fully alive when we are present and grounded in the present moment. If we continue to place our attention in the past or project our energy into an uncertain future we lose touch with the reality of now. The key to maintaining presence in reality is the continual surrender of what arises without adding further commentary to it. In this way we are able to surrender our feelings, thoughts and sensations as they arise and therefore remain fully in the present moment.
