Don Love describes the practice of surrender – a key to spiritual growth and development, and one of the important “activities” of meditation. We repeat the sacred word whenever we are distracting by thoughts during meditation as a prayer to surrender not only those thoughts to God, but all of the “real estate” that they represent in our hearts. Jesus’ life represented a constant process of surrendering Himself to God, and He calls us down the same path which is the doorway to all of Heaven’s riches.
