As an adult, the mind has already acquired the information that it needs to take care of itself. This information is used spontaneously in the moment when needed. For example, you drive to work each day without really thinking “make a left here, stop there, go this way three miles and hang a right.” You may drive to work thinking something totally different or nothing at all. Yet, you arrive at your destination safely. The whole of life is like this. Even learning new information can feel this way if one learns to truly listen with a quiet mind.
Consider the breath: If you focus on it exclusively you feel like there must be an effort made to breathe, and there is a sense of “doer”. You can manipulate it, stop it etc. But if you move your attention away from exclusiveness, the body breathes all by itself.
Will you have to feed yourself?
Is there a “you” in the absence of a thinker that is going to “feed yourself?” Or, is there just Appropriate Spontaneous Action that seems to arise automatically in the moment, and seems to always be on time as if thought and body are one?
That is why “surrender” in its highest definition implies a death. The death of the “me.” The controller; the doer.
With great intensity and perseverance, test the validity of this for yourself.
