Two Egrets Poster/I Call My Spiritual Rowboat Surrender

Above the Two Egrets image, the poster offers the following quote in large print:

I call my spiritual rowboat Surrender
My two oars are instant forgiveness and gratitude

Under the image, in smaller print (but a still very readable font size of 18, almost twice the size of the font commonly used in books):


 I have simplified my life to just three principles, which I try to practice.  I cannot say I have mastered them.  I attempt.  I fall, I falter and I attempt.

I  call my spiritual rowboat Surrender — complete surrender to the will of the Greater Power.  
The act of surrendering is so important that Who or What you surrender to becomes insignificant.  
It is the surrender itself that is important.  

My two oars are instant forgiveness and gratitude — gratitude for the gift of life.  I get angry, I get mad, but as soon as I remind myself to put my oars into action, I forgive.  
          - Balbir Mathur, founder of Trees for Life, adapted from an interview by Roderick MacIver
