Blissmusic's blog listings. Feed Zend_Feed_Writer 1.10.8 (http://framework.zend.com) http://community.beliefnet.com/blissmusic Falling into Infinite Bliss in Meditation "Even when you taste
the bliss that you are,
the mind still runs back
to its old assumptions
of what it is.

You experience yourself as consciousness,
then what happens?
You snap back like an elastic band
to assuming you are your thinking again.

That sense of being a person,
being the doer, the controller
who has it all together,
who knows everything
is a hard nut to break.

In truth, you can't break it.
Because who would be breaking it?
The ego may step forward to supposedly
break the ego, but it's a trick.

So life does it for you.
Once you really start feeling the bliss,
the bliss itself starts to break apart
the illusion of who you think you are.

One thing you can always count on
is that everything is changing.
Everything comes and goes.

Your identity of who you think you are
is about stability,
about things staying the same.

If you keep holding on to
that which will eventually change,
you will come to a point
where you have nothing to hold on to.

Then you fall.

Everyone thinks they can bypass this step.
That you never have to fall.
That you just keep rising and attaining
like a spiritual Donald Trump.

But that is not how it goes!
The falling is the best part.

The best part is not that you fall,
hit the ground and start walking again.

The best part is that you fall
and keep falling
and realize you are the falling itself.

That there is no center
to fall back on.
That there is nothing there.

And when there is nothing there,
there is pure consciousness
and the radiance of life
shines forth like a thousand suns.

Not some little feeling of being,
but because you are nothing,
the infinite shines through as life itself.

Much love,


Kip"

Resting in the Naturalness of This Moment This quote is from a recent satsang.
You can listen to it on Youtube here iFrame Removed
It's nice to meditate to while reading.


"Whatever you do (for spiritual practice)
its always moving
into resting in the naturalness
of this moment.

That naturalness,
that allowing of what is naturally here to be
is so important.

That relaxation
evaporates the illusion of duality.

It dissolves
that contracted sense
of separateness.

When you feel the peace
of that naturalness
then that peace guides you.

A lot of spiritual teaching
ends up being understood as
'I should be like this.'

'I should be compassionate.'
'I should be compassionate,
I shouldn't be grumpy.'

Well then what are you doing?
(by saying that)
You're separating yourself
from the naturalness of this moment.

Because if grumpiness is what is here
and you fully allow that grumpiness
and you're fully aware of that grumpiness
then the grumpiness gets transformed.

The charge in it that keeps you
identified with it,
that keeps you stuck in it
as 'I am this grumpiness'
gets dissolved.

And then grumpiness can be felt as peace.
And when grumpiness can be felt as peace
then everything can be felt as peace.

And when everything can be felt as peace
naturally you will be compassionate
when it's necessary to be compassionate.

It will be your natural experience.
It won't be something you impose
on to this moment.

When you feel everything as peace,
when you feel every emotion as peace,
you feel that bliss, that vibrating bliss
that is the emotion,

then you can really fall in love with yourself.
You can really delight in yourself.

You will find completion in yourself.
The greatest fulfillment is just
being alive as you.

Much love,


Kip"

Meditation Technique for Spiritual Awakening: Letting Go of Thoughts "When you place importance
on a thought,
whether it be an idea, an opinion,
a judgment, or a belief,
then you are bound to it.
It becomes part of your identification.

That thought then has power over you
because you are holding on to it,
you are defining yourself with it.

And that holding on,
keeps you stuck in the feeling of separateness,
of being in conflict with everything else.
Stress is created out of that feeling
of separateness.

So you journey that thought
for as long as you hold on to it.
Perhaps for a minute,
perhaps a lifetime.

But at some point hopefully
you realize the suffering of it,
you realize the stress of holding on to it.
And so you let it go.

And in that letting go of it,
a big chunk of who you think you are goes with it
and you are left feeling that you are nothing.

It feels like death in a way,
of being a zero.

Usually at this point,
we quickly grab hold of something else
to define ourselves.

But if we are courageous,
we allow that nothing.
We don't re-define ourselves
with another idea,
or distract ourselves.
We just allow that nothing.

We are present in that nothing.

And although the mind
will tell you that nothing is the worst,
if you really feel what is there,
you will discover it is blissful.

In nothing, there is just consciousness.
It is pure peace.
Not a peace that is happening for any "me"
but a peace that simply is.

In meditation,
you learn to let of of thoughts in this way
and remain in pure consciousness.
You learn to remain in the pure state
of simply not holding on to anything.

Much love,


Kip"

Meditation is offering 100% Attention to This Moment "Meditation is giving yourself
100 percent to this moment.

If you give yourself 100 percent
to this moment,
then there is no you and this moment,
there is only this moment;
there is only bliss consciousness.

This goes not just for sitting meditation
but for doing anything.
If you are washing the dishes
and your attention is resting 100 percent
in the moment, in awareness,
then that is meditation
and the action itself is bliss.

It is not concentration,
but rather a full surrender
of concentration.

In that full surrender,
the action of doing the dishes happens.
You are not washing the dishes,
Shakti, the universal energy of consciousness
is washing the dishes as the dishes, as everything.
You feel Shakti animating your body.

There is no involvement with thinking about it,
no involvement with thinking about something else.
There is just the full surrender
into what simply is.

Then when the dishes are done,
there is no thinking about it.
That whole experience has burned away.

If you are 100 percent immersed
in the moment,
what happened before
is completely gone,
what may happen later does not exist.

Which is not to say your attention
is focused on the content of this moment.
But rather your attention rests in its natural state
of transcendent universal consciousness.

And that consciousness is beyond time,
beyond content.

In that immersion,
there is only consciousness.
It is all bliss.

Give part of your attention to doing the dishes
and the other to thinking about something,
then the mind is scattered,
energy is wasted.

But fully resting in the backdrop
that is consciousness
uses no energy.
Rather it enlivens you,
it enlivens everything.

Everything is felt to be radiating bliss
as the one bliss consciousness.

You poke holes in a lampshade
and all of the individual holes
are radiating the same light.

The holes are not doing anything,
the one light simply shines through
because its nature is to shine.

Much love,


Kip"

Transcending All Ideas to Realize Truth "The nature of truth
is that it cannot be an idea.
Truth is free and beyond all ideas.

Any words attributed to it
already discolor it.

So in order to realize the truth,
one must go beyond all ideas,
even the idea of a 'me,'
for the 'me' if you really look
is also an idea.
It arises as a thought.

This does not discount
teachings on how to get to the truth.
Teachings may start as an idea.

The teaching may be 'watch your breath'
or 'give your full attention to repeating this mantra'
and just by practicing that,
it takes you beyond all ideas.
That is the purpose of the practice:
not to give you a set of ideas
to carry around with you and judge others,
but to give you direction.

We are drawn to ideas,
to holding on to ideas
because they build us up.
They give the ego,
that sense of 'me' a sense of empowerment.

But when you immerse yourself
in whatever technique or teachings you practice,
when you receive Shakti,
then all ideas of who you think you are
and what you know start to fall apart.

Even your ideas of what is truth
must fall apart.

And when you let everything crumble away
that can crumble,
what is left is truth.

If there is a 'me' and the truth,
if there are 2 things there, it is not truth.

When it has all been reduced
to one or none
then that has to be truth.

Because nothing can be reduced further than that.

Even the word 'reducing' is misleading
because if you are actively trying to reduce
then there is a 'me' there hiding behind the act
of reducing.

So that reducing must happen on its own.
You relax into the essence of this moment.
You may start off with a technique
but the technique is just like getting on a train.
You may get on the train, but the train
takes you to where you are going.

You can and should
take all the steps you can towards truth.

But it is only when everything is surrendered
truth is revealed.

And then that truth is seen
in everything.

Much love,


Kip"
