“You can practice Communion only by
transcending fear, by actual, literal, heartfelt surrender
beyond all fear of death and madness into the Transcendental
Reality. To do this you do not have to die or become mad,
but your fear must be surrendered in love, in ecstasy. You
must simply renounce your fear, give up the luxury of it,
and presume surrender as your attitude under all conditions.
When that attitude becomes true of you, you realize that
fear is not inherent in the act and the moment of emotional
surrender. Therefore, abide in surrender perfectly and you
will not be involved with fear, madness, or death in the
conventional forms that we fear and try to avoid.

Heartfelt release of fear is the
secret of passing through the spiritual process without
going mad. To the degree that you are full of fear, you
limit your experience – and if experience is forced upon
you, then you have no ability while fearful to view it
sanely, to relax and surrender within it. You cannot
surrender by relaxing and trying to feel better. You can
surrender only by giving yourself up, relaxing your
self-hold, surrendering your mind
