Why is surrender so great?

Why is surrender so great?

Surrender is great
Because it accepts
What it does not understand

It does not care to understand
anything whatsoever.
It only believes and obeys,
Obeys and believes.

Surrender is by far the greatest
 Because it alone is the glowing ascent
 Of the aspiring heart
 The proud descent
 Of the Absolute.
