When a mother sits by her sick child all night, does she say, “I surrendered my sleep. I did not eat; I sacrificed my dinner”? It is natural. So, the natural state of love is to surrender.
Mahatma Gandhi is said to have once remarked, “The way to freedom lies through jail!” If we take this world to be a prison-house, the above saying fits in quite appropriately in the spiritual sense also. In utter despair people often wish for an end to life. But in my opinion it shall be far better under such circumstances to pray to God to bestow a life which might be parallel to death.
