A couple observations here:
First, earlier in Your post, You use the word "refuse"...that implies that a person has a conscious choice in order to "refuse"... No one has that awareness if they are spiritually unconscious. And once someone is conscious... there is no longer a need to "refuse" anything. Everything is accepted as it is.
Secondly in the phrase I copied above here. This is not a true surrender. Surrender happens, without thought... and combined with that there is no "give up"...truly. The true sense of what "surrender" means, in the spiritual sense or awakened sense, is that a person allows what is, to be...because a person cannot argue with what already exists. Change cannot occur, ever, only thoughts about something are dropped automatically... and in that, the person is changed. No more suffering, no more creating suffering for others. The mind does not know how to do this. In awakening, the mind is suddenly or gradually relinquished. It loses its illusory power over oneself...and the assumption that it has power over other people. It beautifully becomes non-existent.
What I like to call the heartmind or Heart...functions beautifully, effectively, creatively without the mind. This is where evolution is playing the roll; Life is moving through Us, not *by* Us. It always has, now We Are Aware of It.
