    Learning Witness Consciousness in Meditation

    Tuesday, November 8, 2011, 10:41 PM [General]

    "What your mind tells you
    about what is here
    and what is really here
    beyond mental perception
    are two completely different things.

    Thinking usually happens
    at such a speed
    that the reality you experience
    is not questioned.  

    And what is the mind doing?

    It is defining, describing and judging
    and justifying those definitions,
    descriptions and judgments.

    It is constantly
    creating and reinforcing
    a sense of "me"
    that is separate from everything else
    and thus there is conflict.

    But if you take a step back
    and observe thinking,
    observe the process of
    thoughts arising,
    then this whole mind perception
    begins to fall apart.

    At first,
    the idea of the thinker
    will disappear
    and you will see thoughts
    are arising by themselves.

    From here,
    all judgmental thoughts
    will stop arising.

    As you go deeper,
    all personal thoughts of "me"
    and everything in relation to this
    personal "me" disappears
    and there is an incredible sense of freedom.

    Then you enter dream states,
    visions, esoteric and subtle thinking
    that cannot be comprehended
    by the intellectual mind.

    And beyond this is
    mental noise.

    And beyond that mental noise
    is silence,
    a sense of nothingness,
    pure consciousness.

    The beauty of it is,
    the moment you begin
    observing the thinking
    instead of identifying with thoughts,
    that sense of stress and conflict
    considerably dissipates
    and there is incredible peace.

    And with each level of
    witnessing you sink into,
    you let go of another
    subtler sense of self and
    this peace and bliss increases.

    Judgments stop,
    the bliss increases,
    the personal sense of "me"
    as you know yourself to be
    disappears and
    the bliss increases.

    You keep moving closer
    and closer to the essence
    of what is really here,
    to pure peace, pure consciousness
    and you become
    more and more free.

    It starts with observation,
    with witnessing,
    but then what happens
    cannot be explained,
    you feel your way into it,
    you let yourself go into it.

    Kind of like when you
    go to sleep at night.

    You lie down and relax
    and then you let yourself
    go into sleep.

    You don't really know
    intellectually how it happens,
    because it happens
    beyond the perception
    of mind.

    The Fundamentals of Meditation

    Tuesday, November 1, 2011, 11:02 PM [General]

    "The reason why you suffer
    is because you unconsciously
    avoid this moment.

    You are unconsciously
    but constantly resisting
    this moment;
    separating yourself from
    this moment.

    So the path of awareness in meditation
    is to get you back to this moment.

    And the first part of meditation
    is to sit still.

    Because the most
    physical way you avoid this
    moment is by being restless
    in the body.

    It does not mean
    that you cannot be present
    while moving.

    But for this meditation,
    the first part is to sit still
    and allow that resistance
    to sitting still
    be burned away
    in awareness.

    The second and
    main way you avoid
    this moment
    is through identifying
    with your thinking.

    You are sitting still
    yet you are thinking
    about what you have
    to do tomorrow.

    The thought itself
    does not take you out of this moment,
    but your identifying with the thought
    does.

    The thought arises
    "I have to go to work tomorrow"
    and you are the "I" in that sentence.

    And like you are in a dream,
    you are lost in the imagination
    of tomorrow.

    You have successfully
    escaped this moment.

    This is identification.

    Even thinking about
    being present
    keeps you from being present.

    So then the second part
    is to learn to either
    witness your thinking,

    let go of your thinking,

    inquire into what is here
    beyond thinking,

    rest your attention on the bliss
    that is here beyond thinking

    or to even focus thought
    by repeating a mantra.

    Any of these methods
    are to help keep you present
    or at least give you a taste
    of the present moment.

    But the truth of it is that
    you cannot be present.

    The "you" who you think you are,
    is that which is separate
    from the present moment.
    It is the very resistance
    to the present moment.

    So another way to look at it
    is that you relinquish the idea of yourself
    to realize the present moment,
    to realize your are the present moment

    and in this
    you are free from suffering.

    For however long
    you can remain
    free from thought identification
    resting in your natural state
    of pure awareness
    there is peace.

    And every time
    you drop into pure awareness
    this peace expands
    and floods into
    all aspects of your life.

    The Art of Awakening & Surrender in Meditation

    Tuesday, October 25, 2011, 7:04 PM [General]

    "In the beginning stages
    of meditation,
    you are in control,
    you are doing meditation
    and this is the way it is supposed to be.

    You are awakening
    the Shakti (subtle energy) or consciousness
    until that experience becomes dominant
    in your awareness.

    You are actively awakening
    that which is beyond body and mind
    until that which is beyond body and mind
    becomes a powerful presence
    in your day to day experience.

    It is then when surrender happens.
    Whatever arises in consciousness
    gets surrendered back into consciousness.

    Whatever thoughts or emotions arise
    get surrendered back into consciousness,
    you let them go
    and like a sacrificial fire,
    the Shakti burns it all away.

    And in that burning,
    consciousness expands.

    The more you can surrender,
    the more Shakti flows through you,
    the more amplified consciousness becomes
    in your experience.

    Then, in meditation,
    you realize at some point
    that you're in the way.
    The sense of me that is
    separate from everything else,
    the sense of me that is
    in control,
    the sense of me with all of its
    opinions and judgments,
    likes and dislikes
    must go.

    It's just not big enough
    for both you and consciousness.
    One of you has got to go.

    And there is a pressure there
    that you feel,
    the pressure of this
    separate sense of "me"
    pushing against consciousness,
    separating itself from consciousness.

    The ego is like a kink in the water hose,
    and that pressure builds up behind it.

    And this pressure teaches you
    how to surrender yourself completely,
    how to disappear completely
    so that only consciousness is.

    Because the pressure is not pleasant,
    you recognize there is stress and conflict
    there at a very subtle level.

    I am not talking about outer life,
    you do not become a zombie
    that has no experience of being a body or mind.

    But in meditation
    this idea of you at some point
    is surrendered completely
    so that all that is here
    is consciousness.

    Then that pressure
    is freed and there is bliss,
    there is incredible bliss.

    But none of this can
    happen unless
    the first part happens,
    the awakening of the Shakti
    or the awakening of consciousness.

    That sense of Shakti or consciousness
    has to be there, has to be awakened
    and nurtured always,
    until it becomes so huge
    that all that can happen
    is surrender.

    This is one way of looking at it
    anyway.

    3 Steps to Spiritual Awakening

    Wednesday, October 19, 2011, 1:58 AM [General]

    "This experience
    of separation and stress,
    of being a person
    separate from everything else
    is something you are doing.

    You are contracting
    moment to moment
    into identifying with thinking,
    identifying with the body,
    identifying with the idea of
    who you think yourself to be
    and how life is supposed to be.

    And this contraction
    blocks you from experiencing
    your true nature of peace.

    So then
    how do you stop
    this contraction?
    How do you stop
    creating this suffering?

    Lets put it in 3 parts:

    The first is practice:
    spending time every day
    actively practicing
    a meditation technique.

    The main reason for this
    is to focus your mind;
    to focus your attention.

    With focused attention,
    awareness begins to grow
    and you begin to experience
    life beyond the confines
    of the intellectual and emotional mind.

    Second is to immerse yourself in Shakti.

    Whether it is sitting with an
    enlightened teacher
    that radiates Shakti,
    and/or meditating with
    The Calling or Infinite Sky CDs,

    this Shakti will awaken
    you from the inside out,
    giving you a direct experience of bliss
    that is almost impossible
    to experience on your own.

    Third is to surrender,
    to allow your experience
    in this moment
    to be exactly as it is
    without trying to control it,
    change it
    or even identify with it.

    To experience this moment directly,
    without carrying your past
    around with you and
    believing yourself to be that.

    Let go of the idea of yourself
    and let your attention rest
    in the sensations
    that you feel in this moment
    instead of perceiving
    this moment through thinking.

    If you do these three things
    you will begin to feel alive in a way
    you never did before,
    you will begin to experience
    your true nature as peace.

    It is the difference between
    thinking about bliss
    and living as bliss itself.

    Meditation is Being Vulnerable to This Moment

    Wednesday, October 12, 2011, 1:44 AM [General]

    "One method of meditation
    is to simply be vulnerable
    to this moment.

    To let go of
    trying to justify
    who you are and what
    you know
    and really allow
    yourself to feel what is here.

    This is difficult only
    because of the mind.

    The mind comes in
    and already knows it;
    agrees or disagrees with it,
    has an opinion about it.

    And it is not that you have
    to get rid of that,
    but rather to give up
    taking a position in that,
    in believing this is "me."

    You have all of these
    thoughts flowing.
    It is not to stop the thoughts
    or change the thoughts,
    but rather to see
    the thoughts are flowing.

    To see thoughts are
    arising by themselves.

    You can step back
    out of being this person
    and watch all of these
    processes happening
    which make up the idea
    of "me."

    And you will see in this
    that there is no set
    singular "me"
    but rather a whole bunch
    of processes happening.

    Thinking is happening,
    sensations are happening,
    breathing is happening.

    The ego could really be said
    to be that which grabs hold
    of all of these processes happening
    and claims "this is me."

    And then there is something to justify,
    there is something to defend.

    There is a position made that says
    "these thoughts are me,
    this knowledge is mine"
    and unconsciously there is so much
    effort trying to maintain this idea,
    this sense of being a person
    separate from everything else.

    And it is not to take a position
    to say "I am not a separate person"
    but rather to stop taking a position at all,
    to stop justifying any sense of me
    and simply feel what is here
    without using the intellect
    to interpret it, to label it,
    or justify it in any way.

    To be completely open
    to what is really here in this moment
    beyond thinking.

    And then throughout the day
    to become aware of all of the
    ways you justify yourself
    and to let go of that,
    to be vulnerable to what is here
    and what is happening
    rather than trying to fight it,
    trying to control it.

    It will hurt in a way,
    it will break your heart
    to be so vulnerable
    to life.

    But once you do experience that
    you will love that hurt,
    you will miss it
    if it is gone.

    Because that hurt
    really isn't a pain,
    but rather an opening
    into what is here.

    By feeling this
    you begin to break through
    the barrier of this idea of "me"
    and realize freedom.

    You realize you exist
    beyond all ideas of 'me'
    as consciousness itself.
