On Submission

Submission does not mean being weak or passive. It leads to neither fatalism nor capitulation. Just the opposite. True power resides in submission; a power that comes within. Those who submit to the divine, will live in unperturbed tranquillity and peace even the whole wide world goes through turbulence after turbulence.

Shams Tabrizi  (Poet Rumi’s spiritual teacher from 13th century)
