    My last session with Keshav opened with being fully let go into blue ,vibrant pulsating energy. Mind followed with a heavy retaliation ,which has been moving through since. The invitation was to let go deeper ,and put more effort into stillness in each moment. I have chosen to commit to no phone involving weather, news, or any other distraction that will give mind appeasement. I just finished some magic eye book work ,and found the presence very soothing. I must remind myself that this is not about war. When mind retaliates I notice a tendency to grab my own sword and shield. However, through our experience I know this energy needs more support and space to move freely. Thank you

    Letting go of each past moment, and looking at the present, and open to the next moment produces flexibility. I have seen mental problems in myself and others that takes on a very sticky circular spin. It is not at all flexible.

    “Taking the focus off of some end goal is not giving up. It’s a reflection of staying receptive to the present; it means allowing for a fresh response to changing life circumstances.” Thank you for that comment. I think for me, under the surface the idea of success and failure are always running, filtering how I perceive this moment. Staying receptive to the present and allowing a fresh response to the (ever) changing life circumstances is what keeps me from “giving up.” Thank, Keshav, I needed that!

    I am acutely aware that nothing in life is certain. Whatever aspect of myself that is still preoccupied with fixed ideas of "success," is actually fed by the idea that I am somehow a "failure at life."

    It is really rough riding the waves of ok and not ok. The “not ok” compared to the “ok” is certainly are like riding a roller coaster of emotions and the drop from the “high” to the “low” can make the drop seem all the more intolerable. It is such a relief when I give up the need for the high and instead open to all of it. Nothing to fear, nothing to lose, nothing that needs to be gained. Just appreciating the “gift” (to borrow from Stephen Colbert) which is here in every moment, which can be appreciated whole-heartedly when in awareness.

    I have found the energetic fluctuations of change to be challenging. When things go a particular way “my way”,all in the universe is wonderful. However, minds commentary when life appears not “my way” tends to be a bit sour. From my experience, acceptance and openness to all energy’s allows for a much smoother ride. Peace then reveals itself in each moment.

    Flexibility is the essence of acceptance of what is. All will be. Namaste.

    I will probably listening to “All will be well,” by the Gabe Dixon Band. Of course, all IS well. Still, I find it comforting.
    “All will be well,Even after all the promises you’ve broken to yourself, All will be Well, You can ask me how, But only time will tell.”

    As I have just gotten my notice that I will soon have to give my 2 month advance notice as to whether I will be renewing my lease or terminating it, it is good to be reminded to deal with it in the now. Since 2 month notices don’t have to be given until the day I have to give mine it is a bit of a challenge. Each day I must stay “receptive to the present,”open to change and accessing the creative process in order to be able to be flexible, adaptable to whatever is appearing in the moment; careful not to form a hard and fast idea of how it must all turn out. And remembering that “sufficient unto the day” are the concerns thereof!
