~ SurrendeR ~

"Bow down to existence, Stand tall everywhere"

"The surrender of the palm tree is the attunement of its root to the earth"

Living Master Akshara

The palm tree looks so graceful especially when it dances to the soft melodies of the gentle breeze. The bending of the leaves is like bowing down to the earth in gratefulness for the nourishment it derives from the earth through the roots.
