    Awakening into Silence in Nature

    Wednesday, July 8, 2015, 2:58 AM [General]

    "There's a bushwalk near my house.

    It's not very well kept;
    it's quite rough and wild
    and because of that hardly anyone walks it.

    I can walk 5 or 10 minutes
    down the path and
    there are no sounds of people at all.

    No cars, no noises from houses.
    Just pure nature.

    Although there is the rush of the wind,
    the roar of the sea in the distance
    and the birds chirping and fluttering about,
    you can really feel the silence.

    The birds,animals,trees and plants
    all seem to exist in perfect harmony with that silence,
    as part of the silence.
    It's incredibly nourishing and nurturing to feel;
    revitalizing even.

    Humans have moved far away from this silence,
    making their world more noisy
    more complicated, more selfish.
    Nature is something to conquer;
    to take advantage of.
    Even the natural habitats we choose to keep
    we often micro manage to the point
    where nature is not allowed to be.

    In the same sense inwardly,
    we have stopped being in tune
    with the silence that
    naturally exists at our essence.

    It is all about self importance.
    What I want, I know, I think, I fear.
    And then there is the manipulation
    that comes with that.

    I am really grateful for that bush walk
    as it reminds my whole being
    what life is about.

    That life is nature
    and nature exists in harmony with silence,
    as a manifestation of silence,
    a manifestation of peace.

    Humans have traded in this silence
    for a lot of superficial noise that
    has no soul.

    And therefore there is a lot
    of unhappiness.

    Painting a pretty picture
    on top of the noise
    is not silence.

    But one's willingness
    to be quiet and soft enough
    to realize the silence
    and to learn how to live that silence;
    to me, is the greatest joy.

    Much love,

    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.

    Much love,
