    isn't bhakti/the art of divine love all about surrender and letting go of all the falsity one clings to in this world of illusion? for isn't the essence of surrender rooted in the destruction of the constructed "self". Be it Mira's submission to her heavenly lord or the seeker of the truth who says 'aham bramhasmi' -- each to himself, be it formless or with a form, each one came into this world alone, and shall go back alone without carrying all these contructs with her/him. when one realises this most simplest of and basic truth, there is no dual of 'i and mine and thou' or 'dual' -- there is no contruct of time, be it medieval or 21st century-- and time is how you percieve it, linear/cyclical. Submission is intuitive not rational and even that rationality is conditional.
    jesus/krishna/buddha only came as teachers...finally each one writes and walks his/her own path, reminiscent of that radiohead song,

    I sail to the moon
    I spoke too soon
    And how much did it cost
    I was dropped from
    The moonbeam
    And sailed on shooting stars

    Maybe you'll
    Be president
    But know right from wrong
    Or in the flood
    You'll build an Ark

    And sail us to the moon
    Sail us to the moon
    Sail us to the moon
    Sail us to the moon
