Blissmusic's blog listings. Feed Zend_Feed_Writer 1.10.8 (http://framework.zend.com) http://community.beliefnet.com/blissmusic How to Realize The Void in Meditation "The mind must cling on to something.
It clings on to the body,
clings on to thoughts,
clings on to emotions.

When it can cling on to something, it feels real,
it feels as though it's something solid,
defined, and that feels safe.

Even though there's suffering in that safety,
there's limitation in that safety
there's separation in that safety
there's even conflict, stress,
it prefers that safety.

But when the mind begins to recognize
that which is beyond thinking,
beyond emotions, beyond the physical,
it recognizes a sense of being
that it can cling on to.
And there's nothing wrong with that.

So you cling on to a sense of impersonal being
that does not have form
but still has a sense of self to it
which is peaceful to a certain degree;
blissful to a certain degree.

But if the mind does not cling on to that self,
if your attention does not have to cling on,
if you release that clinging urge,
when you relax that sense of being enough
it becomes something
that cannot be spoken about in any way.

It's the absence of everything.
It is the absence of everything yet it is infinite.

You no longer have a center,
you're scattered in all directions;
everywhere.

Words like nothingness, the void
they kind of point to it but
they're almost derogatory
they're not good words,
but they point to that absence of everything:
Not this, not this, not this.

See the mind clings on
clings on to thinking, the personal self,
then it clings on to a sense of being as consciousness
but the nothingness it cannot cling on to.

The infinite, it cannot cling on to.

Yet the mind does recognize
incredible delight, happiness, joy
when that clinging is no more.
When consciousness no longer
has a center.

It mischievously becomes intoxicated
by its own relinquishment.

Much love,


Kip"

Meditation is Noticing that Consciousness Is "If you close your eyes in this moment and
let go of being involved with both thinking & doing,

then that sense of being separate disappears
and all that is left is consciousness.

You don't do consciousness in any way.
It simply is.

Only when your attention
contracts into being involved with thinking
do you appear to be a someone
separate from consciousness
that needs to find your way
back to consciousness.

It is not that spirituality is complex.
Spirituality is completely simple.
It is your involvement with thinking
that creates complexity.
You become entangled in your own
self created mental construct
and can't find your way out.

And so there are the meditation techniques,
spiritual practices,
to help the mind be free of itself
so that it can return back
into its natural state of being.

The more you remain focused on a technique,
or simply remain in consciousness,

(which means the more you remain
not grabbing hold of thinking and doing)

the more the karmic attachments
to thinking and doing get burned away
and you are left just as you naturally are.

You are simply wide awake awareness
as pure peace and fulfillment.

Much love,

Kip"

Advaita Vedanta: How to Reach Nondual Consciousness in Meditation This quote is from last week's satsang.
You can listen to it by playing this youtube video
Nice to listen to while reading.


"You cannot define yourself.
That's in the superficial thinking perception.

The superficial thinking perception
creates its own definition through thinking
not through reality, but through thinking.

And then that thinking becomes reality.

You see?

You assume from the mind
that you experience reality
and then your thinking defines it, describes it
so that there is order.

But the truth is it is the thinking itself
which is creating the reality.

I'm not saying the physical world is not real.
But your perception
your mental perception,
how you experience yourself in the world
lies only in thought.

It's deeply ingrained.

And with this thinking reality
you assume this is what you are.
And from this false assumption
you try to be free of it!

But what you need to be free of
is the false assumption
which is constantly reinforcing itself
reinforcing itself.

All that mental chatter
its reinforcing this thinking-reality.
Its reinforcing this thinking to be reality.
'I am John, I am a carpenter
this is my wife, this is my mother,
this is my dog, this is what I like
this is what I don't like,
this is my house, this is my body.
I like olives, not cherries."

The thoughts themselves are not false.

That sense of me is not false.
But it only exists in the mental realm.
That is one level of experience.

So that assumption
that the thinking is reality
has to be seen through,
has to be broken.

So there are all the meditation techniques
to help get past this assumption;
to allow your attention
to loosen its grip on thought
so that it can perceive this moment
without perceiving it through thought.

Which means without perceiving it
through definition, description judgment,
commentary.
To directly experience this moment.

When attention
directly experiences this moment,
it experiences itself.

Isn't that delightful?

Because when attention is freed
from being bound by mental perception,
all that is left is attention.
Not personal attention,
because personal attention
is mental perception.

Consciousness is all that there is.
It's everywhere and everything.
And that is you.
You are that consciousness.

It is in this we are one.

Much love,

Kip"

How to Live in Oneness in Every Day Life This quote is from a recent live satsang.
You can listen to it by playing this youtube video
It's nice to listen to while reading:

"The essence of this moment
is oneness, peace, fulfillment.

There is nothing that is separate
from this peace.

To say the physical world
is Maya (illusion) is not really true.
Maya (illusion) is created in the mind.

You objectify this world.
You create a 'you'
and all of the individual objects
that are separate from you.

Which is not actually the problem.
At the simple level of objectification,
if your attention is still resting in
the essential oneness of this moment,
then objectifying the world is natural.

You feel both the oneness
and the sense of you & everything else.
But that everything else is still oneness.

People make sandcastles on the beach.
They make dolphins, mermaids
all out of sand on the beach.
Write their names in the sand.

You can be aware of all of these things,
but they are all made of sand.
That essential oneness remains.

And I'm not talking
intellectually knowing everything is one,
I am talking feeling it.

Your attention always is resting in it.
Your attention can be looking outward
and resting in it all at once.

Because attention itself is oneness.
Attention itself is consciousness.
It's the essential nature of oneness.

So when you are looking from consciousness,
from this essential oneness
at other objects, they are not felt as different.

They can be seen to be different like
the different sand sculptures.
You can recognize all of the different things
yet the essential nature of everything
is oneness; peace.

The suffering comes in,
you get locked in Maya,
you get locked in the illusion of duality
when your attention goes so far
into the objects, that it's no longer
resting in its essential nature of oneness.

Desire itself is not the problem.
Desire is natural.

Its the hyper-objectification
to the point where your attention
is locked into duality.
It's locked into the sense of 'me'
separate from everything else.

When you look, perceive, experience the world
from your essential nature of oneness,
you feel love for everything.

Love, oneness,
they're kind of the same thing at this level.
That's real love.

You know you say
'I love chocolate chip cookies'
that's not really love!

You don't love chocolate chip cookies.
You desire to eat chocolate chip cookies.
If the desire to eat chocolate cookies
were not there, you would feel no love
for chocolate chip cookies.
You would be indifferent to them.

So love is the essential oneness.
It's what spontaneously arises
out of that oneness, out of that connection.

It's not a personal sense,
it's not liking, it's not desire.
It's a sense of compassion almost.
Not in a separate sense,
but a sense of everything's your family.

Much love,


Kip"

How to Dissolve the Ego in Meditation

"At one level in meditation,
one movement into consciousness,
there is a sense of 'me' and there is consciousness.

And at a gross level, these two seem to be separate.

The 'me' that feels separate from consciousness
cannot be conscious
because the root of that 'me' is separateness.

Try and remove the 'me,' you just get more 'me.'

But when the mind begins to feel
the peace or the bliss or the love
or the silence of this moment,
it falls in love with it, wants more.

And then the ego willingly
dissolves itself into this peace
through relaxation.

Just like you're going to sleep:
you feel that bliss of sleep come on
and you willingly allow that sleep to take over you.

You willingly give up the personal 'me'
to enjoy that rest.

In a similar sense, in meditation
you feel the bliss, the peace of this moment,
and there is no manipulation of the ego,
there are no tactics to remove the ego,
you just let the ego relax in this peace.
Let everything relax into this peace
and your attention naturally lets go
of your fixation on 'me.'

Then that sense of 'me' seems to
dissolve into the peace.

Even the sense of 'I am'
dissolves into the peace.
The sense of being dissolves into the peace

so there is just the vastness of peace,
the vastness of consciousness
that is completely fulfilled,
because there is just this.

There is just the oneness.
There is just peace;
unmanifest reality, just peace!

Not some crappy little peace opposite of war
but all encompassing,
infinite, intoxicating, loving peace
that envelopes and dissolves everything.

Much love,


Kip"
