    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.

    Blessings,


    Kip"

    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.



    Blessings,

    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.

    2 Amazing Meditation Techniques for Spiritual Awakening

    Wednesday, October 5, 2011, 1:37 AM [General]

    "One path of meditation
    is to firmly fix
    your attention
    in this moment.

    To not let yourself
    get caught up in thinking
    but rather to directly
    experience what is here
    beyond thinking
    and to remain in that.

    Do not try to stop thinking
    but rather keep your attention
    fixed on what is here beyond thinking,
    allowing the thoughts to go
    as as they arise.

    You could also simply
    dip in and out of that.
    To let your focus rest in what is here
    beyond thinking
    for as long as is comfortable
    and then lose yourself
    in thinking again.

    To dip in and out of it
    is very blissful,
    but if you want to be
    really intense about it
    you can keep your attention
    in this moment
    without allowing yourself
    to get caught up in thinking.

    This method will be uncomfortable,
    like trying to make a puppy be still
    when it wants to run all over the place.

    But with practice,
    if you can remain in that,
    then what first feels uncomfortable,
    will begin to feel natural.

    You will burn away all
    of the tendencies that keep
    pulling you out of this moment
    until all that is left is this moment.

    Another path would
    be to awaken bliss
    by focusing your attention
    on an object of bliss/shakti.

    Such as silently repeating a mantra
    or the name of a Guru, Saint or God
    or even repeating "I am"
    and focusing on the feeling of being.

    In doing this,
    you awaken the Shakti,
    you awaken the bliss
    and then you simply meditate
    on the bliss,
    letting your mind
    be focused on the repetition
    of the name/mantra
    and letting your attention
    move deeper and deeper
    into the bliss.

    Both methods are valid.

    If you practice
    awakening the bliss,
    then most likely at some point
    it will lead you to the first path
    of stillness.

    And if you practice stillness,
    at some point it may
    turn into devotion.

    What is most important
    is that you give yourself fully
    to practicing it,
    allowing it to evolve on its own.

    Eventually both methods
    will be useless
    and you will simply
    fall into what is here.

    The radiance of this moment
    will become so strong
    that there will only be that.

    Meditation: How to Realize the Nameless

    Tuesday, September 27, 2011, 9:57 PM [General]

    "Someone sent me
    a beautiful email
    recently.

    They said they were
    searching for something
    that they did not feel
    really had a name.

    Everyone is really looking
    for that same thing.
    That mystery which is fulfillment.

    But somewhere along the line
    most get caught up in
    defining it.

    In calling it enlightenment
    or kundalini
    or stillness
    or no mind.

    And in naming it,
    you lose what you were
    looking for,
    you create a 'something'
    on top of what you were
    seeking in the first place.

    A something that is
    impossible to attain
    because it only exists
    in your idea of it.

    And then you get caught
    up in ideas, in knowledge,
    in spiritual quotes and inspirations.

    By trying to figure it out,
    you get further and further
    away from what you were
    seeking in the first place.

    But if you can just surrender
    back into not knowing,
    to observing & feeling this moment
    instead of interpreting,

    then like a black hole
    that bliss that has no name
    drinks up all of the words,
    all of the noise.

    It eats it all up
    until there is nothing left
    but that which cannot be defined.

    And then that bliss
    is experienced
    in everything.

    Just by walking,
    just by breathing.

    Breathing alone can
    be the most extraordinary
    experience if there is no
    mind there to interpret it.

    But it takes practice,
    it takes meditation

    By immersing yourself
    in shakti and meditation every day,
    everything becomes clear.

    Meditation: How to Relax into This Moment

    Wednesday, September 21, 2011, 2:39 AM [General]

    "Relax into
    this moment.

    Not your idea
    of this moment
    but into feeling
    what is here
    beyond thinking.

    Keep your body still
    and really feel
    the sensation
    of being alive
    in this moment.

    Let go of all ideas
    of what it might feel like
    or what you know it feels like
    and actually experience
    fresh and new
    the feeling of being alive
    in this very moment.

    Allow thinking to be as it is.
    There is no pushing anything away,
    but rather just relax into
    what is here
    without interpretation.

    You can see these
    two different experiences,
    the experience of this moment
    interpreted by your mind
    and the experience of this moment
    without interpretation
    but directly felt,
    directly experienced
    free from the mind.

    If you can really give
    your attention
    to feeling what is here
    beyond the thinking
    then you will begin
    to awaken to your natural state
    of peace, bliss and love.

    You will begin to feel the
    difference between
    the controlled, separate
    and stressful experience
    of the mind,
    and the natural experience
    of freedom
    expressed as being
    alive in this moment.

    Attaining Samadhi in Meditation

    Wednesday, September 14, 2011, 11:22 PM [General]

    "If you can get to
    the point in witnessing
    in meditation,
    where you realize
    that everything
    is moving by itself,

    then you drop
    out of any idea
    of yourself
    and into
    formless consciousness.

    The experience of separation
    is cancelled out
    and you rest in your natural state.

    It is here
    that everything comes right.

    It is in this that every
    cell of your being gets healed
    and transformed back
    into its natural state
    of vibrating bliss.

    It is intoxicating,
    all encompassing
    and completely gratifying.

    From the perspective
    of the mind,
    happiness is something
    you need to acquire.

    It is something you
    are moving towards
    and so you are constantly
    looking in front of this moment
    to an idea of some future event
    where you will feel satisfied.

    But this is dissatisfaction itself.
    This constant seeking into the
    future is unhappiness itself.

    Yes, you need to practice
    you need to do everything
    you can to make yourself
    more conscious.

    But the path is not linear
    but inward.

    Through purification,
    you bring yourself
    further and further
    into this moment.

    You let go of all control
    and drop into what is here,
    you immerse yourself in what is here.

    Because what is here
    is what transforms.

    The idea that you as a person
    can transform yourself
    into something else
    is really only scratching
    at the surface.

    Only superficial changes
    get made with the mind.

    You fall into this moment
    and there is an infinite
    ocean of grace.

    There is only grace,
    only infinite bliss
    and this bliss completes you
    on every level.

    Once you experience this,
    all ideas of self help, transformation
    get tossed out the window.

    You stop being a person
    trying to go somewhere
    and fall into bliss itself.

    How to Realize Silence in Meditation

    Thursday, September 8, 2011, 10:50 PM [General]

    "If you really look,
    you will see
    you are avoiding
    this moment,
    you are avoiding
    experiencing
    this moment.

    It is not that you
    are somewhere else
    and you have to get
    back to here,

    it is that you are
    actively
    avoiding this moment.

    If you can really
    be honest
    and see this reflex
    of avoiding this moment,
    then you can really begin
    to let it go
    and drop into this moment.

    You can begin
    to let go of thinking
    and experience what is here.



    Our problems
    make us important.
    Our knowledge
    makes us important.

    They keep us
    separated from this moment.

    We hold on to our problems
    and what we know
    because we are scared
    of the nothingness
    underneath it.

    We are afraid
    of being nothing,
    of being nobody.

    We hold on to hope
    and improvement
    and 'feel good' quotes
    because the present moment
    is too vast and empty.

    Yet the very thing
    we keep avoiding
    is the very thing
    we are seeking.

    The moment
    you give it all up
    and fully immerse yourself
    in what is really here,
    there is unconditional peace.

    The silence of this moment
    completes you.

    How to Consciously Deal with Emotional Upheaval

    Wednesday, August 31, 2011, 9:42 PM [General]

    "First, realize
    that someone or something
    is not making you feel this way.

    You are feeling this way
    out of a reaction
    to what is happening.
    Blaming only keeps
    you unconscious.

    Second,
    be honest and
    accept what you feel,
    this is most important.

    Don't try and create
    "positive emotions."
    This is just the ego
    trying to impose something
    it thinks should be here
    on top of what is really here.

    You have to really
    allow yourself to feel
    what is honestly here and accept it.

    Perhaps at first what you feel
    will go and you will find
    a whole new set of thoughts
    and feelings underneath it.

    Such as if you feel angry
    at someone for treating
    you a certain way,

    after allowing that anger
    you may realize that
    the anger was there
    because you did not want
    to accept the feelings
    of rejection
    and loneliness
    that were really there.

    So allow yourself to feel that,
    without trying to change it,
    get rid of it, figure it out,
    understand it, even own it.

    Just allow yourself to feel
    what is here as sensation.

    Accept that this is
    what simply is
    in this moment.

    There is no doing involved
    it is simply what is here.

    If you do this,
    you will instantly feel peace.
    The moment you accept
    and allow yourself to experience
    even the first emotion,
    there is peace.

    And as you allow,
    and feel what is here,
    ultimately what you will find
    that is here is sensation,
    the sensation of energy moving,
    and that is bliss,
    that is love.

    So you see
    what you are really doing
    through surrender and feeling
    is moving beyond the mind,
    moving beyond
    the thinking and the emotions
    to what is really here,
    to what is here before
    the mind labels it and judges it.

    You will feel humbled
    by what is here,
    you will feel completely
    vulnerable to what is here,

    but in this way,
    you awaken to peace,
    you awaken to love;

    not as something
    that you try to do,
    but you awaken to
    what is always already here.

    Then you will experience
    everything as the same bliss.
    You will feel the bliss in resentment,
    the bliss in rejection,
    the bliss in loneliness,
    the bliss in happiness.
    It is all the same bliss.

    It is all the same flow
    of energy.

    It is simply a matter of
    truly allowing yourself
    to feel what is here
    without trying to change it
    in any way.


    Blessings,
