But surely relaxing into awareness, into listening etc is a goal in itself. So to advocate goal-less meditation we also need to acknowledge the insoluable paradox involved. Trying not to have a goal is a subtle new goal. Trying not to try not to have a goal takes it meta step on in an infinite regress and so on. At some point we become so exhausted/bored with this round that surrender just happens - but not because we willed it so.
