Becoming Undone in Meditation

    Wednesday, August 10, 2011, 2:27 AM [General]

    "One of the reasons
    we sit to meditate
    is to strip away
    all of the things
    that distract us
    from this moment.

    All of the things
    that make us
    feel secure
    and in control.

    That makes us
    feel were are getting
    somewhere,
    we know something
    and we are moving in
    the right direction.

    Because when
    we take away
    all the things and
    all the ways
    that empower
    this "me"
    that we have created
    ourselves to be,

    then what we are left with
    is something that is not secure,
    that is not in control.

    Something that is not 'together,'
    but broken and scattered
    and afraid.

    Even if you go beyond
    the emotional, mental
    and psychological,
    there is still a sense
    of separateness.

    But if you can remain
    present in all of it.
    If you can surrender
    to the point
    where there is only
    surrender left,
    then all of this insanity
    begins to burn away.

    Or you could say
    the sanity
    and the insanity
    are both burned away,
    and then what is left
    is stillness.

    Not a stillness
    that is opposite
    of movement.

    But the stillness
    that exists
    underneath
    all movement,

    that is realized
    because the movement
    is fully allowed
    and witnessed.

    You don't become
    a better person
    or a different person,
    you simply become
    your ordinary self
    and at the same time
    you have awakened to
    the fathomless depth
    of stillness
    that goes with it.

    The two cannot
    be separated.

    Realizing Consciousness in Meditation

    Wednesday, August 3, 2011, 2:22 AM [General]

    "In meditation
    we are simply
    noticing
    that everything is.

    It is not the 'everything'
    that is important,
    it is the is-ness itself
    that is the key.

    The mind is always
    caught up in the content.

    But awareness
    only experiences the essence.

    Whether there is anger
    or a thought
    of a chocolate brownie
    or a heavy rain outside.

    All of these things
    are of the same energy.

    They exist out of
    life itself,
    the one energy
    that is animating everything.

    And even in saying this
    the mind is agreeing
    or disagreeing.

    The mind is relating
    to the words as content.

    It is trying to comprehend
    something that
    cannot really be put in words
    in the first place.

    All the words can really do
    is point
    and it is up to
    you whether you give
    your attention
    to where the words are
    pointing

    or you get caught up
    in the content
    of the words.

    And if you give
    your attention
    to where the words are pointing,
    then you move beyond words;
    you move beyond content
    and rest in that
    which cannot really be described.

    So there is this shift that
    needs to happen,
    to move beyond trying
    to experience things with the
    intellect or emotion
    to experiencing what is here
    beyond intellect and emotion.

    To realizing
    the is-ness
    of everything.

    It is not that thinking
    has to stop,
    it is that you stop
    being transfixed
    by the content
    of the thinking
    and realize
    that which is always
    animating the content,

    that which is
    making the content
    possible in the first place.

    The conscious
    ever flowing energy
    that is bliss itself.

    Blessings,


    Kip"

    How to Attain Perfect Bliss

    Wednesday, July 27, 2011, 11:49 PM [General]

    "Self acceptance
    is the beginning
    of true meditation.

    When you fully allow
    everything to be
    exactly as it is
    then you transcend
    that level of experience.

    You allow the body to
    be as it is
    and your awareness
    expands beyond the body.

    You allow the emotions
    to be as they are
    and your awareness
    expands beyond emotion.

    You allow thoughts to
    be as they are,
    and your awareness
    expands beyond the thinking.

    If there is any urge
    to change something,
    improve something,
    then there is conflict
    and you remain stuck
    in that which you wish
    to change.

    Many see happiness
    as some future goal:
    'If I can heal my emotions,
    if I can stop reacting in this way,
    if I can be free of these memories,
    if I can stop my thoughts
    then I will be happy.'

    And so there are all
    of these different modes
    of healings and therapies
    and belief systems
    giving you the illusion that
    if you just work on yourself
    hard enough and long enough
    then you can be a perfect person.

    And nothing could be farther
    from the truth.

    I am not knocking
    self improvement,
    it has its purpose,
    but it also gives you the illusion
    that some time in the future
    you will be good enough.

    Which means you are not
    good enough now.

    The underlying
    condition of self improvement
    is that how you are in this moment
    is wrong.

    You are a glitch in the system
    and you need to be fixed.

    Yet from your natural state
    of pure awareness
    everything is perfect
    as it is.

    Not as a judgment
    but that which is self evident.

    So when you enter meditation,
    accept yourself as you are.

    This is not
    'I love myself as I am'
    or any other psychological therapy.

    It is to accept everything as it is
    all the way to the core.

    You let it all be exactly as it is
    without any involvement.

    You let go of trying
    to do it,
    trying to control it
    and allow that
    which cannot be known
    to take over.

    Because then you relax into
    the essence of that experience.

    And the essence
    of all experience
    is consciousness.

    One all encompassing
    perfect consciousness
    that lights up the whole show.

    That is
    the whole show.

    And the nature
    of consciousness
    is bliss.

    Perfect bliss.

    Learn This Advanced Meditation Technique

    Wednesday, July 20, 2011, 2:04 AM [General]

    "In meditation,

    one of the greatest
    things you can do
    is become aware
    of how thought identification
    happens.

    Become aware
    of the process
    of thoughts arising
    and the action of
    being attached
    to identifying with
    those thoughts.

    There is a feeling
    of contraction behind it,
    a feeling of stress.

    A feeling of constantly
    holding on to something
    that is flying all over the place.

    And if you can recognize that
    attachment
    then you can begin
    to let go of it.

    You can begin to
    rest in non attachment
    where thoughts
    are never even given
    the power to fully become
    a thought.

    You will find
    if you remain
    un-identified
    to thinking,

    the power that
    makes thinking happen
    dissipates
    and thoughts can
    slow down and even
    stop altogether.

    And then what is left
    is impersonal radiance,
    a power that expands
    and consumes everything
    that may arise
    back into itself
    like a blazing fire
    of consciousness.

    So you see
    it is not what you know,
    how you act,
    or even what your experience is
    that is important.

    We are looking behind
    all of that.

    We are looking at the
    first action of identification
    that turns the whole thing
    into a personal you
    with a personal mind
    and a personal story.

    We are breaking
    that attachment
    to creating that identification
    and recognizing
    what is left.

    Remaining in what is left.

    It may not be blissful
    or peaceful or loving.

    You can't look
    to get something out of it.

    You are stopping
    the creation of what
    is looking for bliss
    in the first place
    to remain in what is
    undeniably here
    underneath it all.

    Blessings,


    Kip"

    Enlightenment & The Power of Now

    Wednesday, July 13, 2011, 12:10 AM [General]

    "It's very easy
    to carry the past
    around with you.

    To think about what happened
    yesterday
    or a year ago
    or 20 years ago.

    To think
    you could have done
    something different
    that would have
    made things better.

    Or link all of the memories
    together into a story
    and calling it 'me.'

    But it's all nonsense.

    What happened
    even 20 seconds ago
    has nothing to do
    with what you are now.

    From the perspective
    of the mind
    you are this person
    that stretches back in time.
    You are the sum
    of all of your memories.

    But this is only mental chatter.
    It has nothing to do with
    what you truly are.

    Truly, meaning
    not what you think yourself to be
    but what is here beyond
    all the thinking nonsense.

    No matter
    what you may think about it,
    you are alive in this moment.

    Yesterday is not alive;
    yesterday is nonexistent.

    Right now,
    there is the undeniable
    sense of life
    beyond all the useless
    definitions and descriptions.

    Right now life is happening
    and it is your choice
    whether you are alive
    in this moment
    or you choose
    to distract yourself
    about endless
    commentaries
    of what happened before,
    what might happen later
    and what to call this moment
    so the mind can understand it.

    If you choose in this moment
    to experience yourself alive
    then you are radiance.

    It is no easy task,
    it requires your complete
    attention
    to remain here
    on what is really
    going on in this moment.

    Not your ideas about
    what is going on,
    not your knowledge
    of what it felt like 10 seconds ago
    to be alive in this moment.

    But right here;
    living is happening,
    life is happening.

    Not for your body
    or your mind
    or any of that nonsense.

    You allow all that to be
    but you look past it.

    Something much bigger,
    life itself
    in its totality
    radiating
    even exploding
    in this moment
    with such force
    that it belittles
    the mind,
    belittles
    the idea of this
    self important 'you'
    with all its problems
    and desires.

    Its not really about
    getting a certain pleasure
    or attainment
    but being alive,
    being willing enough
    to truly feel life
    happening in this moment
    and remaining
    alive,
    remaining
    attentive
    to the direct experience
    that life is happening
    forever and ever
    in this moment.

    To remain immersed
    in the source of life
    that is lighting up
    the whole show.

    And if you even
    think about it
    you miss it.

    If you know it
    you miss it.

    It is too simple
    for understanding.

    Too close to you
    to even be seen.

    You can only be
    and recognize being,
    which are really the
    same thing.

    You fully recognize
    being in this moment
    and there is no
    room for anything else.

    Consciousness
    takes up the whole view.

    Blessings,


    Kip"
