    Enlightenment & The Joy of Being Nobody

    Thursday, June 4, 2015, 2:26 AM [General]

    "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,

    Feeling Your Way into Awareness in Meditation

    Thursday, May 21, 2015, 2:35 AM [General]

    "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

    Thursday, May 14, 2015, 3:02 AM [General]

    "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.

    Meditation Technique for Spiritual Awakening

    Thursday, May 7, 2015, 3:08 AM [General]

    "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.

    Spiritual Awakening & The Purpose of Peace

    Thursday, April 30, 2015, 11:03 PM [General]

    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"

    The Process of Surrender in Meditation

    Friday, April 24, 2015, 1:03 AM [General]

    "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,

    How to Be Free from Suffering and Unhappiness

    Thursday, April 16, 2015, 3:12 AM [General]

    "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.

    Oneness in Meditation and in Action

    Thursday, April 9, 2015, 2:29 AM [General]

    "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,

    Spiritual Awakening: Consciousness is Always Here

    Thursday, April 2, 2015, 9:23 PM [General]

    "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

    Wednesday, March 25, 2015, 9:28 PM [General]

    "'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,
