In a congregation, H.H Sri Sri Ravi Shankar asked, “How many of you feel strong?” Many people raised their hands. H.H Sri Sri Ravi Shankar then asked, “Why?” “Because you are with us,” they answered. “Only those who feel weak can surrender,” Sri Sri responded. All those who were feeling strong were taken aback; they suddenly felt weak!
If you are in love, you feel weak because love makes you weak. Yet there is no power stronger than love. Love is strength. Yet love is the greatest power on earth. You feel absolutely powerful when you are with the Divine.
Someone asked: But why do we keep alternating between strength and weakness? H.H Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: That is the fluctuation in life. When you feel weak - surrender. When you feel strong - do seva.
