From the Foreword, by Evie Lindemann:
“For those potential readers who might take a dive into this book on the topic of surrender, some of what you may discover will surprise you and some of the content will be familiar. Meher Baba, in His writings, reminds us that the spiritual path is unique to each individual. He also places emphasis on the relinquishment of the ego as a necessary step along the spiritual path. Here, with his skillful inquiry, Laurent shows us how Meher Baba wades into the waters of surrender with full confidence that the spiritual aspirant, over time, will recognize both the difficulty and the inherent value in taking steps toward surrender.”
In the first half of this book, Laurent explores the basic questions of surrender, such as how, when, why, and who will embark on the process with generous quotes from Meher Baba. Laurent explains his understanding of the path Baba has laid out for us, invites us to consider what the obstacles to surrender are, how surrender must be an active rather than a passive process, and why surrender must be sincerely executed.
The second half of the book contains a series of personal stories and poetry contributed by Laurent’s spiritual writing companions explaining their own personal experience and understanding of surrender. These authors include Evie Lindemann, Daniel Stone, Alan Manoukian, Cyprus Weichberger, Sarah Weichberger, Thomas Wolfe, Daniel J. Stone, Dale Draeger, Cynthia Barrientos, Geoffrey Wight, Tracey Schmidt and Vanessa Weichberger.
