"Meditation techniques & spiritual practices
are extremely important
but do not necessarily
take you directly into meditation.

They might, they might not.

For many,
practices take them to frustration.

You might find that no matter
how focused you are on the practice,
you feel further and further away from peace.

And eventually that frustration turns to despair.

And if you are really blessed,
you surrender to that despair.

You surrender to your own longing for peace
and your despair in not achieving it.

And in surrendering to the despair,
meditation happens.

You have finally gotten out of the way
so that meditation can happen.

That does not mean you should not practice.
It just means you get to a certain point
where meditation takes over.

The very idea that you can do meditation
keeps you from meditation.

But in order to get to that point,
you have to practice;
you have to make an effort.

You make an effort until
you see effort is futile
like your wheels are spinning
a hundred miles an hour
but you aren't moving an inch.

Then you see how useless your ego is;
how useless it is to believe
that you can do meditation.

And when you surrender that doer
that has failed miserably,
then what is left is meditation.

If you try and take a shortcut
by never doing any practice
and just believing you are not the doer;
that you are already consciousness,
then you most likely end up in a
conceptual understanding of meditation
which is worst than not meditating at all.

Because that conceptual understanding
can keep you from meditation.

And also,
it is not that you do practice to a certain point
and then give up all practice
and meditation takes over.

It is that meditation takes over
and then the practices themselves
become infused with meditation.

You have a new realization of practices.
They become a direct link to meditation.


Much love,


Kip"

How to Be Free from Suffering and Unhappiness "A lot of your suffering
comes from what you are putting
into your mind and body:
The food you eat,
the alcohol/drugs/stimulants you take,
the media you watch, the music you listen to,
the people you listen to,
the books you read etc.

Take away everything unhealthy
and replace it with healthy,
get daily exercise and meditation
and some time in nature,
and already there will be a feeling
of health and radiance to your mind and body.

Most of the other suffering comes from
your sense or separateness
and identification with thinking.

"I don't like this. I'd rather have this.
I believe this. I have this opinion.
I like oranges. I don't like apples."

But what is the common
denominator in all of it?

It is the 'I.'

What is the 'I'
that does not like apples?

Is it anything more
than an identification
with a thought?

Take away thought,
now where is the 'I' that likes
and doesn't like?

Don't identify with the thought;
allow the thought to be
without claiming ownership of it,
then where is that 'I'
that likes and doesn't like?

Don't resist this moment.
Allow everything to be just as it is,
then where is separation?

You still exist perfectly
yet you are free from that sense of
separating yourself from what is.

That is the transcendental aspect of spirituality:
to rest in what you are beyond thinking,
beyond separation
as consciousness itself.

It is simply letting go of your involvement
with mental perception and resistance
and allowing your attention to relax
into it's essential nature of consciousness.

The other side of it is to love.

Not dualistic love
of wanting something in return.
But just to love.
To give yourself over to being loving,
being respectful, being devotional.

That also requires you
to surrender the sense of 'I'
that separates itself from everything else
with all of its endless judgments..

Whether you love a spouse, a child, a pet,
an animal, a guru, a god
or even a teddy bear!

Just the act of loving
frees you from duality,
frees you from suffering.

Because love is 
the very essence of this moment.
And so when you love without conditions,
then you feel connected
to your true nature.

Much love,

Kip"

Oneness in Meditation and in Action "Offer 100 percent attention
to whatever you do.

If you do that,
no matter what the outcome,
you will be fulfilled.

There is no real peace or love
when you scatter your attention
a little here and a little there
or you are attached to the outcome
being a certain way.
Then you are not alive.
Then you are separating yourself from peace.

When you give your full attention
not in concentration or control,
but in full surrender, love and awareness,
you transcend duality
and feel one with everything.

Whatever practice you do,
give your full love and attention to it.

When you give your full attention to it,
there is nothing left of separation.
There is no room for worry, greed, or selfishness.
There is only freedom; only peace.

Even if it is just for one second.
Just for one mantra repetition, one breath,
whatever you are doing,
immerse your full attention into that one moment
with love and humility.
Then you become one with everything.

It may take hours and days and months and years
of practice to get to that point of 100 percent
or it may be instant.

It could be an ongoing exploration
of what it means to give yourself
completely to this moment
and immerse yourself deeper into peace.

Or it could just be the willingness
to let go of one thought
you have been holding on to,
that you have been repeating and identifying with;
just to let go of it completely for a moment
and rest in the silence that is underneath it.

And when you taste that peace of letting go,
when you taste the oneness
of offering your attention one hundred percent
you will want to return to it again and again.

Much love,


Kip"

Spiritual Awakening: Consciousness is Always Here "Everyone has situations
in their life where they say
'It's impossible to be present
in this situation.'

But impossibility
only exists in your thinking.
You are only holding on
to a certain judgment about how it should be;
holding on to a certain idea of yourself
and refusing to budge from your position.

It is just about surrender.
Surrendering the ego,
surrendering your position.
In surrender, there is awareness.

It does not matter what emotions
or thoughts are there,
or what the situation is.

You exist completely transcendent
of the situation,
beyond body, beyond mind
as consciousness itself, as peace itself.

Consciousness is always here,
peace is always here.
It is what everything is made of.

If you are always thinking
'first I need to change this situation,
then I can be present'
or 'first I need to change myself
before I can be present'
then you cheat yourself out
of your own freedom.

Because that time when everything
is perfect is never going to come.
If it does come, it will not be permanent.

But what is permanent is this conscious peace
that you are, that everything is.
This is what must be realized.

At the same time,
it is important to create a lifestyle
filled with meditation, spiritual practice,
eating healthy, immersion in Shakti
so when challenging situations do arise,
awareness is already there.

Or even if you do lose awareness
or your sense of peace,
you can easily bring yourself back into balance
because there is already that commitment to peace
that you have been nurturing
and growing over a period of time.

That commitment to peace
on a daily basis is most important
to realizing your essence.

If the ocean surface is full of turbulence,
you cannot see what is beneath it.

Much love,


Kip"

How to Move through the Various Stages of Meditation into Oneness with Everything "'I am' and 'everything is'
are the same.

You may start in meditation with resting in 'I am,'
and feeling your sense of being
that is beyond thinking.

And that may turn into witnessing.

And witnessing may turn into
'everything simply is,'
the sense of no separation
between you and the world.

In this, the sense of 'I am'
has merged into is-ness itself.

That is one way to consider it.

If you are identified with thoughts
then you are identified with being
a 'me' that is separate from this moment.

There is a desperate self importance to it;
the sense 'these thoughts matter.'
And then you are imprisoned by thinking.
Thoughts themselves dictate your experience.
That is true brainwashing.

Without identification with thoughts,
there is no sense of being a separate 'me.'.

And without that sense of separateness,
first you may feel a feeling of simply being.
Then that may open up to a sense of being consciousness itself,
of just witnessing.
And in that witnessing,
there may be a subtle surrender
into is-ness, where everything merges into one existence.

When all is one
then all is peace.

It is just a matter of relaxing your attention
out of your thinking,
out of self importance,
and into the already existing awareness
that is the foundation of this moment.

Allowing this moment to be
and in that allowing
you are no longer involved with the
thinking 'me' and thus you relax back
into your natural state of awareness.

It is very simple, very relaxed.
No controlling or forcing.

But if there are too many thoughts
and you find you are getting too caught up,
you have all the various spiritual practices
and meditation techniques that you can use
to purify the mind and body.

And with enough spiritual & meditation practice,
the power behind your thoughts dissipates
and the awareness that you are becomes
easily realized.

Much love,


Kip"
