How to PracticeTranscending the "Me" in Meditation

    Tuesday, May 21, 2013, 10:21 PM [General]

    "A large part of meditation
    and spiritual practice
    is about turning your attention away
    from being involved with the personal self
    and back towards the essence of what you are.

    Most people's attention is completely
    involved with the personal 'me' experience.
    My thoughts, my beliefs, my desires,
    my fears, my hurts, my worries.

    And so by being completely involved
    with this me and all of it's personal thoughts,
    one cannot see beyond it
    to experience one's true nature of peace.

    Even in entering meditation
    many people subtly make it
    about the 'me' experience
    and therefore separate themselves
    from meditation.

    They look to have
    a certain experience or attainment.
    They want to stop thinking,
    they want to enter witness consciousness,
    they want to feel bliss or peace.

    By putting the idea
    of how you think meditation should be
    on top of this moment,
    you separate yourself
    from what is naturally here.

    So there are many meditation techniques
    that give the mind something to focus on
    and awakens attention to what is beyond
    this sense of personal self.

    For instance,
    if you are silently repeating 'I am'
    and letting your attention rest on the feeling
    of simply being,
    then this frees your attention
    from being fixated on personal thoughts and feelings
    into what you are beyond that.

    Or by putting your attention on a Guru,
    or the feeling of Shakti,
    or repeating a mantra,
    without looking to get certain results from it
    then again this awakens you beyond your personal self
    into oneness.

    But as you get more subtle,
    you simply learn to get out of the way
    and allow meditation to happen.

    Through allowing the personal self
    to be exactly as it is,
    allowing all thoughts and feelings
    to naturally rise and fall as they do
    without involvement,
    your attention will naturally relax into
    the quiet depths of pure consciousness.

    In this way you can transcend the small self.

    And once you begin to taste the bliss of your true nature,
    your attention will naturally want to take refuge in that
    instead of getting involved with the stress and drama
    of the personal self.

    Devoting Yourself to Silence in Meditation

    Tuesday, May 14, 2013, 11:38 PM [General]

    "Silence is not
    the absence of thought.

    You cannot just stop thinking
    and then you will experience silence.
    That is just the absence of thinking.

    Rather, you start to feel it.

    As the Shakti & awareness
    builds inside you
    and you begin to naturally be aware
    of your thinking rather
    than identified with it,
    you will begin to feel silence,
    or sense silence
    underneath the flow of thoughts.

    And very naturally
    you will be attracted to it.
    You may feel it as bliss, as peace,
    as love or as freedom
    and your whole being
    will fall in love with it.

    Not in the egotistical sense
    that you feel it as pleasure and
    you want more.

    It goes way beyond that.

    You recognize it
    as the love you have been seeking
    since before you were even seeking.

    The peace of it is so pure
    that just being in it fulfills you.
    You want to give yourself over to it
    because it is the ultimate feeling
    of coming home.

    And so you become devoted
    to that silence.

    You give yourself over to silence out of love
    the same way you give your body
    over to your lover.

    And then in that
    there is perfection.
    You feel you are exactly where
    you are supposed to be.

    That dissolving yourself into silence
    fulfills you in every way.

    The peace is so nurturing
    that your heart is at peace,
    your mind is at peace.

    And in this you see how all the words
    and knowledge about spirituality
    are just ugly.

    Because the peace is beyond words.
    The silence is beyond any understanding
    or achievement.

    Would you say I achieved
    the love of my life?

    I attained the love of my life?

    There are no words
    or understandings about it.
    You find silence,
    then you just want to be in that silence.

    Words just can't touch it.
    Emotions can't touch it.
    Yet you recognize it
    as the essential nature of everything
    and you fall in love with it.

    Much love,


    Kip"

    How to Dissolve into Nothingness in Meditation

    Tuesday, May 7, 2013, 11:21 PM [General]

    "People often hold on to suffering,
    mulling over their problems
    because of fear.

    If you are in meditation
    and you are holding on
    to the trying to figure out how
    to fix your problems,
    then you have separated yourself
    from meditation.

    But in meditation,
    if you let go of that control,
    if you let go of the thoughts
    about the problems as they arise,
    you will come face to face with fear.

    Fear of what?

    Fear of annihilation.
    Fear of falling into nothing.

    Because from the perspective
    of the ego,
    it is far better to suffer as a someone
    then to become nothing.

    So we create these ideas
    of who we are
    and then we try to control our world
    to try and protect who we are.

    But both meditation and life
    are constantly putting cracks
    in who we think we are.

    Even as a body
    we watch the thing get old
    and fall apart.

    And if we look closely
    all those ideas of who we think we are
    and how life should be
    are also constantly being shattered.

    We keep trying to hold it all in place
    and it keeps falling apart.

    And so ultimately either in love
    or in exhaustion from suffering,
    we surrender.

    We allow ourselves to move
    right through that fear into nothing.

    We give up the fight,
    we give up trying to make things
    to be a certain way
    and surrender into the nothing.

    We dissolve into that nothing.

    And in that nothing
    we not only realize peace
    but we realize the totality.

    As nothing
    we experience fullness.

    And then that bliss of nothing
    begins to be far more attractive
    then all the effort & stress we put into
    trying to create ourselves to be
    a certain way.

    And it is not that
    we exist as nothing,
    rather, we simply are.

    The purity of is-ness.

    There is no concrete separate 'me'
    that is the is-ness,
    rather the nothing alone is
    as everything,
    as you.

    Much love,


    Kip"

    Meditation Technique to Attain Bliss

    Tuesday, April 30, 2013, 10:31 PM [General]

    "There is a natural space
    of pure silence and stillness
    in this moment.

    In meditation,
    relax your attention
    so that it begins to settle
    into this moment
    and sink below
    the outer movements
    of thoughts, emotions
    and physical happenings
    into the stillness
    that lies beneath them.

    Just in resting your attention
    in this stillness,
    thinking runs out of energy
    and stops by itself.

    It is a place of non-movement,
    non-doing.
    It is motionless, effortless
    and fully aware.

    You do not get to this stillness
    through self effort but through
    surrendering and relaxing into
    what is naturally here.

    Do not try to force yourself
    to remain in this stillness.

    Rather, keep relaxing back
    into this effortless stillness
    when you are pulled out of it.

    Much love,

    Meditation: How to Be Free from The Personal Self

    Tuesday, April 23, 2013, 9:11 PM [General]

    "The personal sense of self is made up
    of a whole bunch of thoughts
    that attention has held on to.

    Certain thoughts are too attractive
    to just let pass by
    and so attention holds on to them,
    chews on them, elaborates on them.

    And because attention has given itself
    to a thought in this way,
    the thought sticks around,
    it becomes part of the personal self,
    of who you think you are.

    It arises
    and you identify with it.
    Because you identify with it,
    it comes back
    and you identify with it again
    and in this way it strengthens.

    It is constantly reinforcing itself in this way
    as a personal sense of who you think you are.

    There is no solid identity
    that is made of thoughts,
    but rather it is just an action
    of attention repeatedly grabbing hold
    of the same thoughts over and over.

    And with this holding on to thoughts
    comes separation.
    Attention which is free of duality
    contracts itself into a thought
    and from that distinguishes itself
    from everything else.

    The more thoughts it attaches itself to,
    the greater that separation becomes.

    And from that comes conflict,
    the need to protect all of these thoughts and beliefs
    because it has become what you are.

    Meditation is the process
    of breaking down this structure of
    identified thoughts
    so that the peace that you truly are
    can shine through.

    By consciously not holding on to the thoughts,
    the energy behind the thoughts dissipate
    until attention becomes free of them
    or the thoughts stop arising all together.

    Shakti is the energy
    that awakens your attention
    to the bliss that you truly are
    and in that realization,
    this structure of a personal self as
    thoughts being held on to
    starts to collapse.

    And so there is the conflict:
    If you really commit to
    meditation and shakti,
    you will awaken into
    unfathomable peace and love.

    But self realization will also
    require you to let go of
    who you think you are.

    So in meditation,
    you make a decision:
    which is more important,
    the thought that is arising
    or the bliss that is your true nature?

    Because it will not always be easy
    to let go of a thought
    you have claimed to be important.

    It will not always be easy
    to rest in the place of not knowing;
    to be in the place where the mind no longer
    has anything to hold on to.

    Yet it is far worse
    to go through life
    gripping all the thoughts
    that make up who you are
    never realizing the unconditional peace & love
    that is your true nature.

    Because immersing yourself
    in the depths of that peace
    is better than anything that could be imagined.

    Much love,

    How to Be Free of Unhappiness

    Tuesday, April 16, 2013, 9:33 PM [General]

    "If you feel unhappy
    in this moment,
    if you feel dissatisfied,
    then let your attention
    sink deep into the sensation
    of that unhappiness.

    Allow the thoughts,
    but do not give them importance,
    do not pay any attention to their content.
    Do not get involved with reasons.
    Let your attention
    rest in the allowing of unhappiness.

    Find a way to surrender
    so deeply into the sensations which
    you call unhappiness
    that you fall into the source
    of that unhappiness.

    And the source of that
    unhappiness
    is unconditional peace.

    All experience arises out of
    pure consciousness
    out of pure peace.

    No matter what the experience
    you will find the same peace
    at the source.

    So why try and change the experience?

    Outer experience by its own nature
    is always moving & changing,
    so allow it.

    Allow it completely.
    Let your attention rest so
    deeply into your experience in this moment
    that you come to pure peace.
    So that you realize yourself
    to be that pure peace.

    This is your home.
    This is your true nature.
    And it is always here.

    To try and change your experience
    in this moment
    only closes the doorway
    to your essence.
    It only closes your heart.

    Rather,
    allow it.
    Open yourself to it.
    And in that pure vulnerable awareness
    of what is in this moment,
    come to the source of it.

    You will find all discontentment
    arises from inattention,
    from resisting this moment,
    from letting your attention get
    lost in that which is outside of this moment.

    The feeling of unhappiness
    is only an invitation
    to come back to your true nature;
    to surrender everything
    back into pure awareness.

    How to Realize Your Essence in Meditation

    Tuesday, April 9, 2013, 10:23 PM [General]

    "The truth is
    you exist completely free of thinking.

    You exist at your essence
    untouched by thought.

    It is only out of your essence
    that thoughts can arise in the first place.
    You exist prior to thinking.

    So then the question is
    how can you realize your essence?

    And from the perspective
    of the thinking mind
    you can't.

    Because the thinking mind
    already assumes it is the thinking mind.

    If you come from the assumption
    that you are the individual thinker,
    how can you be free of it?

    In meditation,
    you can stop placing importance
    on thinking.

    Thoughts arise
    you let them go,
    you stop holding on to them.

    Garbage in
    garbage out.

    The individual identity
    exists by attaching itself to thinking;
    by placing importance on thinking.

    But in meditation,
    if you can let go of that importance,
    and simply witness the happening,
    you will discover a flow of thoughts
    like a river of junk flowing by

    and you remain expanded beyond it,
    untouched by it.

    It arises within you
    but does not affect you.

    Then you learn to remain in that awareness.
    To let go of that knee-jerk reaction
    to attach your attention to thinking.

    Now all of this is well and good,
    but how does the individual that identifies
    with thinking
    stop identifying with thinking?

    You must become aware of something
    much bigger than this individual me.
    You must become in awe of something
    much larger than who you think you are
    in order to be able to step out of it.

    And this something is grace,
    it is Shakti.

    Shakti itself awakens you from
    your dream of being mesmerized
    with thinking into something
    the mind cannot understand nor deny.

    Then naturally your attention
    wants to go there,
    like a window in a dark room
    that has suddenly been opened
    you will no longer be satisfied
    with the dark room.

    You will want to be free of it
    so you can enjoy the sunlight.

    Much love,


    Kip"

    You CanRealize the Self in an Instant But Enlightenment Takes Time

    Tuesday, April 2, 2013, 9:30 PM [General]

    "It is true,
    you can realize
    that you are consciousness
    in this instant.

    And you should realize
    that you are consciousness
    in this instant.

    It takes no time at all.
    You simply turn your attention
    back on to what is here prior to thinking
    and immerse yourself in that.

    But what takes time
    is remaining in that.

    For thoughts will continue to arise
    and if you are attached to those thoughts,
    if you identify with those thoughts that arise
    you will be pulled out of consciousness
    back into being a separate 'me.'

    So you taste pure being
    then you are jerked out of it
    back into thinking identification.
    Then when you see you are caught up,
    you find your way back to awareness.

    You practice keep coming back
    until you can either remain a witness
    to everything that arises
    or remain so rooted in the Self
    that thinking does not touch you.

    And this takes time.
    It takes lots of time
    sitting in meditation
    and perhaps also
    a lot of other practices
    that help purify the body and mind.

    And then beyond this
    what also takes time
    is the body and mind
    becoming enlightened.

    By remaining in bliss
    or remaining in pure consciousness,
    your body becomes infused in Shakti.
    Your mind becomes infused in Shakti
    so that they become enlightened.

    So that the mind itself recognizes
    it is made of consciousness.
    So that the body moves
    as energy itself.

    Because although it is nice
    to be able to step out of yourself
    into pure consciousness,
    you also want to bring that pure consciousness
    into all aspects of living.

    You want this bliss
    to permeate everything.

    And this takes time.
    The body and mind goes through purification
    to allow Shakti to flow through
    and then it becomes Shakti itself.

    How to Attain Fulfillment

    Tuesday, March 19, 2013, 9:57 PM [General]

    "If you are interested in fulfillment,
    then what matters more
    than the tasks that you do
    is how present you are with the tasks.

    If you are doing something
    and thinking about doing something else,
    then no matter how pleasant the task is,
    you will not be fulfilled.

    Even if you are getting a massage
    and your mind says massages are great,
    but you are worrying about
    what you have to do tomorrow,
    you will not experience any joy.

    Yet if you are doing something
    you might not even like to do
    and you are fully present in the task,
    you will experience an enjoyment
    that is far beyond
    any superficial sense
    of happiness or unhappiness.

    Many people are dissatisfied
    with their job
    and fantasize about doing something else.

    Yet the main dissatisfaction often comes
    from the lack of presence in the job,
    not the job itself.

    The mind makes a judgment
    about the job according to the way
    the mind sees itself and
    then automatically resists the job
    because it does not fit in with the way
    the mind believes itself to be.

    But you see,
    all that is happening in this is belief.
    You have created an idea about
    who you are, what the job is
    and a judgment about whether the two
    mesh together well and then believe
    all of these to be true.

    And by placing importance on these beliefs,
    you experience resistance and discontentment.

    You are choosing to be unfulfilled
    simply because you believe unfulfillment to be true.

    But if you do not place importance
    on these ideas and judgments
    but rather expand your attention
    beyond individual gratification
    and immerse it into the very task at hand,
    you transcend yourself.

    And in that transcendence,
    there is pure contentment,
    there is pure peace.

    I am not saying
    that you should like or not like
    what you do
    or that you should or shouldn't
    look to do something else.

    What I am saying is you can
    focus on being present with what you do
    rather than your opinion about it
    and in that experience pure contentment.

    And it is the same with meditation.
    It does not matter what you are experiencing
    in this moment.

    If you are fully present in your experience
    you transcend all experience
    and abide in a pure state of consciousness.

    And it is this consciousness
    that is fulfilling.

    How to Attain Stillness in Meditation

    Tuesday, March 12, 2013, 10:06 PM [General]

    "In meditation,
    become aware of how the mind
    avoids this moment.

    How it looks just outside
    of this moment.
    Always looking for distraction.

    The mind exists because it separates
    itself from this moment.

    Even if you try through the mind
    to rest in this moment in meditation,
    you will see the mind remains
    separate from this moment.

    It tries to do awareness
    tries to think its way into meditation
    and thus remains separate
    from this moment.

    So in order to be truly present,
    the mind must be surrendered.

    When you are fully present
    in this moment,
    resting as awareness itself,
    there is no mind.

    When you detach yourself from thinking,
    first, personal thoughts disappear
    and there are just random impersonal thoughts
    that have nothing to do with
    your personal experience.

    Then if you simply allow those to run
    without involvement,
    they also run out of energy.

    But first is surrendering the mind.
    Surrendering your attachment to the
    movement of thinking,
    surrendering your identification with
    perceiving this moment through thinking.

    Just like you can stand in a room
    with a television on
    without actually watching the television,
    you can be aware in this moment,
    allowing thinking to be
    but remaining unaffected by it.
    It simply becomes a flow of energy.

    In meditation,
    you let go of attaching yourself
    to thoughts
    and rest in your natural state of awareness.

    And then you can remain resting
    in that natural state of awareness
    by surrendering any urge to move
    and resting as stillness itself.

    Much love,
