The essence of awakening is surrender. Surrender of your parts, surrender of their beliefs and strategies, and surrender to the now.
These five points are valuable to deeply consider:
1. All is impermanent.
Everything changes, all things decay, all things come and go, all things die.
2. You are going to die.
Perhaps this afternoon, or next week, next month, or in 30 years. It is not if, only when.
3. You are alone.
You can enjoy company, good friends, but you will always be alone.
4. You are in control only of your actions.
All else is out of your hands.
