When you surrender completely to your Master, your Master becomes everything for you. Your Master becomes the mother, He will shower the Love of a mother on you. He becomes the father, He will be disciplined with you. He becomes everything. Then the world dies. He becomes the world. The Master becomes the path. That’s why you will see in ashrams, in monasteries, one lets go of everything. One lets go of family, one lets go of children, one lets go of the husband, wife, one lets go of mothers, fathers, and lives for God. The same in context is everywhere. In the Gita you will see similar, when Krishna explained that: To Realise God, to Realise who you are in Reality, one has to let go of everything. Christ said: I have come not to make peace, but to separate the daughter from the mother. I have come to separate the father from the son. This is so that one doesn’t get attached, so that one detaches and Realises who is the real Father and who is the real Mother. Otherwise, one stays always in this illusion.
When one really lets go of everything and one surrenders, one gets everything! One gets the real thing: why one has come here. One gets Self-Realisation, one gets God-Realisation. One rises in the Divine Love. So, this should be your ultimate goal if you are on a spiritual path: to have Self-Realisation, to Realise God’s Love continuously inside of you.
