You wont surrender, wich means, surrender means only accept this moment as it is But you wont be able to surrender unless you are completely fed up with suffering you've had enough suffering and at some level you recognize that most of you suffering is self-created it is created out of resistance to what is it is created out of interpreation of something that is it comes from a thought, from an interpretation not from a situation so you realize really that i've had enought suffering and only when you've trully had enought suffering in your life are you able to say that you dont need it anymore suffering is a wonderful teacher suffering is most people's only spiritual teacher and suffering deepens you it gradually erodes the mind made sense of self, the ego and for some people the point arrives when they realize i have suffered enough and that points obvious the case with almost all the people who comes to retreat if you ask them they've all had less eeear of human suffering otherwise they woudn't be open to the message they've had less eeear of human suffering and they've reached a point where they are ready to listen to the message that says "there is another way to live" there is another way in but you can live and does not create further suffering for yourself because to a large extend humans create their own suffering and so when you are ready to hear that message and that is really the message that that is in every religion thats the message, the central message of budism is the end of suffering and even the central message of the teaching of Jesus is finding the prole of great prize, finding the kingdom of heaven that is within you here and now and as Jesus says and, that of course, is the end of living in a state of suffering So One good say that you need suffering for you to realize, for you to come to a point of realization that you do not need to suffer anymore there's a paradox here If i had not suffered I would not misteaching or would not exist so you could say it has come partly as the result of intern suffering because as a human being i would not have evolved spiritually if i had not suffered so suffering was my main teacher and suffering is for many people their main teacher but then there are, some people are when they are ready they come into a contact with the spiritual teaching or teacher and that can speed up the process of realization that you dont need to suffer anymore you are ready to hear that so that was the Budda talked about nothing else already 2600 years ago

I have suffered enough. There is another way to live. Humans create their own suffering. If I had not suffered, this teaching would not exist, so you could say that it come partly as a result of intense suffering. Because, as a human being I would not have evolved spiritually if I had not suffered. Suffering was my main teacher.
