Before you read this please read the previous post if you have not read it yet.

Dropping all resistance: I would like to quote from one of my favorite books, God Loves fun,” How has the ocean become the ocean? Because it has accepted the lowest! The humblest is the greatest. If you agree to go low when you don’t feel good you will become the richest person on earth. “

Keenness: Observing not superficially, but witnessing the intricate movements of prana. We need to go deep. As they say,”doobna seekho” (learn to drown). With a keen eye we need to track down the cause behind the cause behind the cause….Like peeling the onion…one layer after the other with commitment and dedication.

Playfulness: All this is done like a game, playfully…” lila “(play). With a playful attitude the result does not matter, whether you fall down or rise up. It’s the same thing. There is no labeling or any judgments or analysis. Its with a sense of wonder and amazement. Enjoying every bit of the process of observation.

Impermanence: Experiencing the change and getting established in this realization that nothing stays the same.

Non-Identification: Again and again reinforcing the truth that “ I am not the mind”…I am not “this” So ham… I am that, the unchangeable. Untouched consciousness.

Somehow we need to come back to the state where we can say,” thy will be done” or better still,” thy will alone is happening now”!

    Wonderful....

    and I reckon all these happen simultaneously when we are submerged in devotion...giving up oneself and getting dissolved in the Presence...

    but how to be in that state all the time...only by abhyasa?

    hey bhaiya
    you know since long I have also been doing the same thing, of bringing the mind back to the present. the last thing that you have said "let thy will be done" is so powerful because in that state/thought the mind becomes empty and somehow the craving drops off, immediately
    this is so amazing and also you know simply becoming aware of the 5 modulations of mind(as guruji has said in patanjali sutras) also the mind comes back to present moment so totally...
    what you have said is v true it is abhyasa, it has to be done regularly/consistently
