Footpaths – Surrendering


Mencius said to a disciple, "There are the footpaths along the hills; if suddenly they be used, they become roads; and if, as suddenly they are not used, the wild grass fills them up. Now, the wild grass fills up your mind."

—Mencius

Either surrender because you realize your inability and need a Higher Power to help you, or investigate the cause of misery. The Divine never forsakes one who has surrendered.

Sri Ramana Maharshi
