Blissmusic's blog listings. Feed Zend_Feed_Writer 1.10.8 (http://framework.zend.com) http://community.beliefnet.com/blissmusic Enlightenment & The Joy of Being Nobody "It's a lot of effort to be a somebody;
a lot of stress.

You have to keep reinforcing
the idea to yourself and others
that you are a somebody.
You have to defend your position,
your opinions, your beliefs, your accomplishments.

You have to keep remembering
your worries and desires;
always planning and manipulating
so you can have it the way you think it should be.

You have to be that somebody
to everyone around you.
And perhaps a slightly different somebody
to each person around you.

It's exhausting.

But what happens if you stop
maintaining the sense that you are a somebody?
Then you are just a nobody.

And that is the last thing
we are supposed to be in our culture.

Yet, what happens when you are nobody?

You don't have to be a certain way.
You don't have to maintain an image.
You have nothing to defend,
no position to hold, no idea of yourself to reinforce,
no self importance,
no need for life to be a certain way.

If you really let yourself be nobody,
(and that does not mean
adding a sense of nobody
on top of what is here,
it just means to stop identifying yourself
with being a somebody,
or more simply,
stop being so involved with your thinking,)
then you are free.

Just be simple, and quiet
and rest in this moment
without grabbing on to thoughts.

The sense of being nobody is just that:
there is no definition of you,
no idea of what you are to hold on to.

You are just free to be as you are.
And that is not a thing or a person.
It is just being awake in this moment.

Then there is just consciousness.
Not your idea or knowledge of consciousness,
not you holding on to consciousness,
just consciousness; wide awake awareness;
completely free.

There is great relief in this;
incredible peace.

You will feel alive in a way you could not
when you were a someone.
You will feel you are life itself
radiating this moment.

Much love,


Kip"

Feeling Your Way into Awareness in Meditation "Awareness cannot be known
by the intellectual part of the mind,

but the mind can and does
recognize awareness through feeling.

It may feel it as peace, as bliss, as love.
It may feel it as formless being,
energy, silence, the witness
or even as a sense of freedom.

And through feeling,,
the mind can recognize awareness
and very naturally, it will be drawn to awareness
for the feeling it gives.

It feels good, it feels right, it feels pure.
Your whole being is attracted to this goodness.

But the other aspect of awareness
cannot be recognized with the mind.

For this aspect of awareness to be realized,
the mind must surrender itself completely.
The mind gets sucked into awareness like a black hole.

It disappears completely into its essence
in order to realize its essence.

And what that essence is cannot be described.
One could say nothingness, pure consciousness,
but those words do not touch it.
It is why it is called 'neti neti' or 'not this, not this'
as it is beyond all comprehension.

But what is again recognized by the mind
is the exquisite peace and joy that comes
out of that nothingness
and then in turn is felt as all and everything.

Much love,


Kip"

How to Awaken into Silence & Stillness in Meditation "Silence is not a cessation of thoughts.
Stillness is not a cessation of movement.

If you try and stop thinking,
that is an action of repression.
The thinking has not stopped
you are only holding it back.

It is an action on top of the action.

Silence and stillness
is at the root of allowing.

When you allow thinking,
when you allow all happenings
to naturally happen,
then you are both no longer
involved with the happenings
and no longer trying to control the happenings.

It is a completely 'hands off' experience;
completely passive.

You will find the very allowing
is silence, is stillness.

In allowing,
your attention sinks deep
into this moment
underneath all happenings
and falls into the silence and stillness
that never moves,
that is eternally here.

And in resting in this silence,
thoughts fall into the silence and disappear,
happenings fall into the stillness and disappear
and this silence & stillness
that is the essence of all experience
rises to the surface
and encompasses everything.

Much love,


Kip"

Meditation Technique for Spiritual Awakening "Turn your attention to consciousness.

Whatever arises,
allow it to arise
but keep your attention
resting in consciousness.

We pay far too much attention
to the noise of the mind
and not the consciousness
that is the essence of mind.

Consciousness is silent.
It is prior to noise.

By remaining in consciousness,
the silence of consciousness
begins to become louder,
it begins to take over the noise.

All noise seems to dissolve
into that silence.

When the energy of consciousness
is strong in you,
you no longer need to keep your attention
on consciousness.

Rather,
you are pulled to surrender
into the silence, into the stillness.

It feels like a losing battle
to try and go against it.
And in losing the battle,
in full surrender to silence,
you find you are free from all suffering.

You are free from everything
when you are perfectly resting
in that silence
which is the same as resting in yourself.

Then you can really see how destructive
noise can be, the human noise;
the outer human noise we are bombarded with
and the busy-ness of thinking;
the over stimulation of noise to the point
where awareness is forgotten.

You can see how
you create your world with thinking
and how your involvement with thinking
can kick you again and again.

Something painful happens,
or might happen in the future
and the mind keeps repeating it
so you live it over and over.

And so you add more noise on top of it
to distract yourself from the hurt.
And it gets louder and louder,
busier and busier.
More imbalanced, more stressed.

You can see how humans
have gotten completely out of balance
with the natural world;
the silence that exists
so beautifully in the natural world.

The silence that is simply aware.

Turn your attention back into consciousness.
Don't let the noise of being involved with thoughts
dictate your experience.

Allow the thinking to be.
But come back to what is naturally here
prior to the noise
and reclaim the peace that is
the essence of all experience.

Much love,


Kip"

Spiritual Awakening & The Purpose of Peace This quote is from our last online satsang.
You can hear it by playing this youtube video
It's nice to meditate to while reading.


"The purpose of this peace
is not to give you more money,
not to heal your body,
not to make you happier,
not to make you enlightened.

The purpose of this peace
is peace itself.
Because that is fulfillment itself.

And because it is fulfillment itself
it does wash into every area of your life.

But if you see this peace
as something you can manipulate
something you can use
for your own benefit,
then you're not really going
to realize this peace in it's fullness.

Ultimately you surrender fully into this peace
and you live this peace.

And in living this peace
the idea that this peace is here
for some egotistical benefit just
does not make any sense- that's ugly.

That doesn't mean you have to
give up your desires or your goals.

It's just about how you approach this moment,
how you approach the peace
that is at the essence of this moment.

That's why there's all those eastern practices
of bowing, of being humble.
It's an act of surrendering to this peace,
surrendering your ego,
your sense that
'I am more important than anything.'

And what is that "I" that is more important?
It's your thoughts, your opinions,
your judgments, your desires.

When peace becomes the most important,
then you are fulfilled.

Much love,

Kip"
