    Enlightenment is an Inner Revolution

    Tuesday, December 3, 2013, 8:49 PM [General]

    "A lot of people at the moment
    are looking for a revolution.

    They are seeing corruption
    in the government,
    corruption in religion,
    corruption in the economy.

    They are seeing that powers that be
    have been pulling the wool over their eyes
    for quite some time
    and now that they are aware of it,
    they are not accepting the corruption anymore.

    But there is another corruption that
    is happening.

    And that is unconsciousness.
    People are unconscious of what is here
    outside of their mental perception.

    They are a prisoner
    of their own thoughts and feelings.
    Whatever thoughts arise,
    that defines their experience.

    And at the core of this experience
    is the feeling of separateness,
    of feeling separate from peace,
    separate from consciousness,
    of feeling separate from everything
    and therefore in conflict with everything.

    And so there has to be an inner revolution.

    There has to be the same resolve
    to turn your attention deeply into
    what is here in this moment
    and find out the truth of what you are
    beyond the thoughts.

    To turn inwards and realize
    the one consciousness
    that is everything
    and that is free of all conflict.

    There has to be the resolve
    to stop being distracted
    by all of the junk
    that entertains you just enough
    so that the day has gone by
    and you were never present
    and actually feel this moment
    without defining it, describing it, judging it.

    There has to be the willingness
    to take all of the steps necessary
    to purify & awaken the body and mind enough
    so that you can realize what is here.

    There has to be the willingness
    to be present in this moment
    even if it hurts, even if it is uncomfortable.

    If you are angry,
    to have the courage to feel that anger
    instead of letting it out, instead of justifying it.

    If you have addictions and bad habits
    to be willing to feel the essence of those desires
    instead of giving into them.

    If you are bored, if you are working,
    if you stub your toe, if you feel hurt
    there must be the willingness to feel it,
    to experience this moment completely
    in all of its pains and pleasures
    without seeking to escape them.

    Not to fixate on them,
    but to simply allow them to be fully.

    The moment you choose to be awake in this moment
    or even just giving yourself fully
    to trying to be present in this moment,
    life takes on a whole new meaning.

    Even if it hurts, even if its hard,
    you begin to experience
    the infinite depths of this moment
    and there is incredible freedom in that.

    Just by giving your attention fully
    to experiencing what is here beyond thinking
    you have opened the door
    for truth to reveal itself.

    Much love,


    Kip"

    It's Impossible to Be Unhappy in This Moment

    Wednesday, November 27, 2013, 8:22 PM [General]

    "It is impossible
    to be unhappy in this moment.

    If you are aware,
    surrendered completely in this moment
    then you are free from unhappiness.

    Unhappiness only exists
    in thoughts about the past and future.

    You remember bad things that happened
    or you anticipate bad things that might happen.

    Without thinking about the past & future,
    there is only this moment,
    there is only consciousness.
    There is only peace.

    So perhaps at first
    you need a technique,
    something the mind can focus on
    to keep you present,
    or to at least keep returning your attention
    to the present.

    But after a while
    you can just surrender into
    the present moment.

    You can learn to let go
    of attaching yourself to thinking
    and remain resting in presence;
    the presence that transcends unhappiness.
    The presence that is pure peace.

    Once you see your unhappiness
    is self created through thinking,
    you can learn to transcend thought
    and be as you truly are in this moment.

    You can allow yourself to rest
    in your natural state of conscious peace
    completely free of unhappiness.

    Much love,


    Kip"

    Awakening the Mind into Self Realization

    Tuesday, November 19, 2013, 10:18 PM [General]

    "Consider how the mind
    opens and closes:

    When you identify yourself
    as a something, as a someone,
    it is closed,
    it is contracted into being a something.

    Yet when there is no identification
    or definition, the mind remains open.
    There is no contraction in being a something.

    If you identify yourself as
    'I am Kate, I am a peaceful person,'
    the mind is closed, contracted.
    It knows what it is and therefore
    is not aware of this moment.

    Yet if you get angry and have
    angry thoughts, the mind
    can no longer hold the definition
    that you are a peaceful person.

    And so that identification is broken
    and the mind remains open
    for a certain period of time.

    Then it finds a new identity,
    or a justification for that lapse of peace
    and then can close itself again
    on a definition of who it thinks itself to be.

    And you can see this
    in all aspects of your experience,
    mental, emotional, spiritual,
    likes and dislikes, fears.

    If you are scared of little dogs
    and suddenly one day
    there is a little dog right in front of you
    wagging his tail
    and you can't get around him.

    And then in awareness
    you go beyond your fear
    and give him a pat
    and feel a connection,
    then for a little while,
    the mind sees its definition
    is no longer true
    and therefore remains open,
    remains unidentified with anything.

    Or if every day at 4pm
    you eat an ice-cream
    and then you stop doing that,
    the mind will look for that ice-cream
    at 4 pm and when it is not there
    it shorts itself out in a way
    and remains open, it remains alert.

    So in being aware
    of this process of the mind
    opening and closing
    you will begin to become comfortable
    in just allowing it to remain open.

    You will begin to experience the contraction
    of having to be a something or a someone,
    of identifying with an opinion, belief or judgment
    and realize you can just remain open,
    without definitions, without reasoning.

    It is like when (I don't remember who)
    asked the Buddha what he was
    and he said 'I am awake.'

    It is like that,
    you are not a something
    nor are you not not a something.
    You are just awake.

    There is just the open space
    of consciousness
    free from any fixed point of reference.

    And that is freedom.

    Much love,


    Kip"

    Realize that Everything is Consciousness

    Tuesday, November 12, 2013, 7:15 PM [General]

    "It is very beneficial to understand
    that the essence of everything
    is peace;

    that the essential nature
    of everything is nondual conscious bliss.

    In the physical/mental/emotional experience
    everything has an opposite:
    positive and negative,
    happiness and unhappiness,
    love and hate.
    And life is always swinging
    from one to the other.

    But underneath that
    is a peace that has no opposite to it,
    love that has no opposite to it.
    Because there is no 'other' there.
    There is only peace,
    there is only love,
    there is only consciousness.

    Everything is made up of this,
    everything is created out of this.

    There is nothing that is not consciousness.

    But in order to become an individual person,
    there has to be an apparent separation from this.

    There is a contraction that happens
    from being consciousness
    to contracting into being a person
    separate from everything else.

    To be a person,
    you have to enter the dual world.
    You must experience your body
    as something separate from everything else.
    You become a person
    with likes and dislikes,
    desires and fears
    who experiences both happiness
    and unhappiness.

    And the more you become involved
    with these likes and dislikes,
    these desires and fears,
    the greater the stress,
    the more separate you feel
    from your essence of peace.

    So by allowing your experience
    in this moment to be as it is.
    By being aware in this moment,
    allowing the happiness
    and unhappiness,
    allowing the desires and fears
    without involvement with them,
    you begin to rest back into
    your true nature of peace.

    Your sense of "me" begins
    to dissolve back into
    the singular consciousness
    that is everything.

    You begin to experience
    the same blissful energy
    that is the essence
    of all experience.

    You learn that resistance
    separates you from this bliss;
    trying to add some idea
    about how life should be on top of what is
    separates you from this bliss.

    So life becomes more simple.
    Life becomes more natural and in tune
    with this essential flow of energy.

    Even an intellectual understanding
    that the essence of everything is peace
    can begin to break up
    your perception of separation.

    You begin to stop fighting this moment
    out of the need to survive
    and begin to relax into this moment
    and allow peace to shine through.

    Much love,


    Kip"

    The Fastest Way to Experiencing Joy

    Tuesday, November 5, 2013, 9:16 PM [General]

    "Find a way
    to love this moment.

    Find a way
    to become devotional
    to this moment.

    In all honesty,
    this is the fastest
    way to joy.

    If you look to get something out
    of this moment,
    then there will always be separation.

    There will always be you,
    what you want
    and what is in the way
    of what you want.

    And that is living in conflict.

    Not that you should not have desires.
    But that frame of mind
    of "what can I get from this moment
    by giving as little as possible"
    is the suffering.

    It is why fast food is so popular,
    technological distractions are so popular.
    Why there are so many people addicted
    to alcohol, drugs etc.

    That eternal suffering
    of wanting instant gratification
    regardless of the long term consequences
    just creates more and more unhappiness.

    So you can learn
    to simply be in this moment
    without trying to get anything out of it.

    You can learn to witness
    this moment.
    You can learn to rest
    in your essential nature
    of just being.
    These are very good.

    You can also surrender
    and allow this moment to be as it is;
    this begins to open up your heart.

    When you really allow this moment
    to be as it is
    and allow feeling, allow sensations
    to be as they naturally are,

    this opens you up.
    It opens you up to deep peace
    and it opens you up to love.

    Then when you surrender,
    you fully allow this moment to be
    yet at the same time
    you love this moment,
    you honor this moment,
    you respect this moment,
    you internally bow to this moment.

    Then you really find joy.

    Then you are no longer stuck
    in the trying to get something out
    of this moment
    and you are no longer fixed
    on trying to transcend this moment.

    The ego is completely
    out of the picture.

    This feeling of love and devotion
    is not emotion,
    it is rather an opening
    of your heart
    to all that is.

    Then it is about
    'how can I live this love
    in every movement.'

    And you do that
    through giving your attention
    to this moment.

    And you will see
    all of the stuff that comes up
    that separates you from this moment.

    All of the judgements,
    all of the mental noise
    that separates you from love
    and you learn to surrender it
    to this moment like an offering.

    Life becomes about
    how respectful and loving
    can I be to this moment.
    How can every action
    resonate in the essential love and peace
    that is underneath all action.

    Not because the action itself
    demonstrates something peaceful,
    but because you are giving yourself
    completely to that action
    in love and peace.

    From the heart
    you really recognize the joy
    of such love and devotion.

    It fulfills you in a way
    that nothing else can.

    You will see how silly it is
    to look to attain something in the future
    when this very moment is sacred.

    Much love,


    Kip"

    Everything Dissolves into Peace in Meditation

    Wednesday, October 30, 2013, 9:48 PM [General]

    "In meditation and in awareness
    you are allowing everything to move back into
    its essential nature of energy.

    You are allowing everything
    to dissolve back into the one conscious energy
    that makes up everything.

    When this energy contracts,
    it becomes an individual
    form.
    It becomes something separate
    from everything else.

    Take desire for an example:
    Desire itself is energy,
    a constant flow of energy.

    Say, from that constant flow of energy
    comes the specific desire
    that you want an ice-cream.

    That desire first is energy.
    And in energy it contracts into
    both a thought and a feeling.
    And when you identify with
    the thoughts and feelings
    you are bound by them,
    they become a part of who you are.

    And then when you act on that thought
    and get an ice-cream,
    it contracts into form,
    there is the ice-cream,
    the eating of the ice-cream,
    the cost of eating the ice-cream
    and the cause and effect
    of eating the ice-cream.

    There is a whole series of happenings
    that come into play
    and the energy that was behind that desire
    is no longer felt
    because it has contracted into form.

    You no longer feel it as energy
    you feel the gross experience of it
    and are seemingly trapped in
    the world of solid and separate forms.

    On the other hand,
    if you repress that desire and try to fight it
    then the energy behind it builds up
    and it is felt as stress and conflict.

    But if you allow the desire to be
    without giving into it
    and not fighting it;

    If you allow the thoughts around it
    and feelings around it
    to be
    without involvement,
    then both the thoughts and the feelings
    dissolve back into the nondual flow of energy.

    They dissolve into the natural flow of energy
    that is desire
    and then dissolve into the natural flow of energy
    that is transcendent of desire,
    that is pure consciousness.

    So once you really awaken your awareness
    to this flow of Shakti/energy and you feel it,
    you will begin to become aware
    that everything is arising out of energy.

    You will also become aware
    of the urge to create separation
    with everything that arises out of it.

    But through simply allowing
    whatever forms or experiences
    to arise out of it without involvement,
    they dissolve back into their purest form as energy.
    It all dissolves back into
    the one consciousness that you are
    and you become free.

    Gradually,
    you learn to just remain
    in this allowing,
    you learn to remain
    resting in this nondual awareness
    so that everything whether
    manifested into form or not
    remains as energy.

    It all becomes bliss.

    Much love,


    Kip"

    How to Be Free from Suffering

    Tuesday, October 15, 2013, 9:22 PM [General]

    "Because we are attached
    to things being a certain way,
    we experience suffering.

    We experience an unhappiness
    that is beyond emotion;
    a sense of unfulfillment
    because things are not the way
    we think they should be.

    But when you realize
    this suffering is your doing,
    then you can go beyond it.

    I am not talking about pain
    whether emotional or physical;
    these things must be experienced.

    But if you are completely resting
    in this moment,
    then you are free from suffering,
    because you are free from duality.

    If your attention is either
    on the awareness of this moment,
    resting in awareness itself,
    on a mantra, chant or meditation technique,
    in devotion,
    or resting in the feeling of Shakti/Bliss,
    then all of these things
    take you out of suffering.

    They don't add something
    to your experience of suffering
    to make it better,
    they remove you from that mental perception
    of separation and conflict
    that is at the root of unhappiness

    and back into
    your natural state of pure consciousness,
    into your natural state of being
    where there is no other.

    There is no lack of fulfillment
    because there is no one there
    to be unfulfilled.

    Rather, what is there
    is only the one consciousness,
    one being.
    And the nature of that is love,
    is peace, is bliss.

    And although your mind will tell
    you all the reasons why
    you can't experience this,

    it is only a matter of
    turning your attention
    back into this moment,
    back into the bliss of Shakti,
    back into your mantra or meditation technique

    and learning to remain in that
    oneness of consciousness
    no matter what else
    you are doing at that time.

    Much love,


    Kip"

    How to Realize Inner Silence

    Wednesday, October 2, 2013, 9:40 PM [General]

    "We create ourselves
    on top of the silence that is here.

    We build ourselves up
    to be a certain someone
    that expects things to be a certain way.

    But it is all built out of thoughts.

    And the thoughts are sticky,
    they are magnetic.
    They have a power behind them
    that comes from identifying with them
    so they run with great speed
    into this moment and keep coming back.

    With so much non-stop noise
    on top of this moment,
    how do you realize the silence?

    That is why there are spiritual tools
    and practices that start to purify
    and clear away all of the noise
    on top of this moment;
    that start to weaken the hold
    thoughts have over you.

    Then you can begin to realize
    what is really here beyond all of that noise.
    Not in the sense of knowing it,
    understanding it,
    but rather all understanding
    disappears into it.

    You do not become silence,
    you stop identifying
    with the noise on top of it
    and then there is just silence;
    limitless silence.

    Everything is that silence.

    You move in silence,
    speak in silence,
    eat in silence,
    breathe silence.

    It is a void
    yet at the same time
    it is radiant.
    It radiates bliss energy.

    Question is one,
    are you willing
    to do what is needed
    to realize the silence;

    and two,
    are you willing to give up
    the perpertual creating yourself
    to be a certain someone
    separate from this moment
    to experience what you really are.

    Not very enticing at one level,
    until you realize the limitless peace
    that is you
    and there is no end to exploring
    and delighting in that.

    Much love,


    Kip"

    How to Be Free from The Ego-Mind

    Wednesday, September 11, 2013, 8:57 PM [General]

    "Every time you identify with
    that part of the mind
    that is always seeking
    always wanting something
    always worrying, always judging,
    you make it stronger.

    You know that feeling
    when you give your opinion
    about something,
    that feeling of being puffed up
    like a puffer fish.

    It makes you feel big
    but it also separates you
    from what you truly are.

    The ego is the sense
    of individual identity
    separate from everything else.

    So whenever you empower it,
    you are separating yourself from peace.
    You experience a greater distance
    between you and the peace that you are.

    The ego/mind in this way
    is like some grouchy stranger
    barking orders at you.

    'Go get me a drink'
    and when you run and get
    him a drink, you just made him stronger.
    Now he wants something else.
    Now he wants a cookie, now he wants an iphone,
    there is no end to that wanting.

    And you end up being ruled by him.

    Make no mistake
    you are a prisoner of your thoughts.

    It's only when you realize
    that you don't have to do identify with the thoughts,
    you don't have to serve
    your desires, judgement and fears
    that you become free.

    You don't argue with the mind,
    or try to make it different,
    you just allow it to ramble
    and you rest your attention
    into what is truly here
    beyond the noise.

    To what you truly are
    beyond the noise.

    It can be as easy
    as allowing everything to be as it is
    and feeling yourself existing
    in this moment.

    You just let the mind
    make noise as it wants
    without placing importance on the noise
    and you can be free of it.

    After a while,
    if you no longer empower it,
    it quiets down,
    it runs out of steam.

    Then you begin to experience
    what you truly are in this moment.

    Beyond all of the noise
    that you have taken as reality,
    you begin to experience yourself
    as the silence.

    And then whether there is noise
    on top of that silence or not
    you remain as the silence.

    Just by no longer serving that noise,
    you realize the peace that you are;

    Zen & The Art of True Seeing

    Tuesday, August 27, 2013, 8:42 PM [General]

    "Have you ever noticed,
    when you see something that
    you have never seen before,
    something the mind does not
    know or understand,
    you really see it,
    you give your full attention to it.

    But once the mind has defined it,
    described it and judged it,
    you don't really see it anymore.

    Even if you do look at it,
    you don't really see it,
    you only see the definitions, descriptions
    and judgments about it.

    The thoughts about it
    have gotten in the way of
    really seeing it.

    It's not the thoughts
    that are the trouble,
    it's that we keep carrying them around.

    Someone did something you didn't like years ago,
    and every time you see them
    you remember that thing they did.

    It separates you from really
    seeing them.

    One way to get back to true seeing
    is to drop the thoughts.

    To practice surrendering the thoughts
    to the present moment.

    The same thoughts you have been
    holding on to may keep coming up.
    That is fine, you keep surrendering them.

    Any label comes up about something
    that is not necessary to label,
    then you let that label go.

    Because if you begin to see things
    without the filter of mental perception,
    you will experience everything
    in a completely new way.

    Everything will be fresh and new.

    And as you go deeper,
    you will see everything is divine,
    everything is the guru, everything
    is the same conscious bliss
    in different beautiful forms.

    The other way to really see
    is through love and devotion.

    If you really love someone, then no matter
    what they did to you in the past,
    it is gone, it is irrelevant.

    Maybe words at some point needed to be said
    so you could be free from the words,
    but once they are said, it is gone.

    If you really love someone,
    you only really recognize that love,
    you recognize a beauty about them
    that is eternal, that is perfection.

    So if you show everything
    that same love,
    that same devotion,
    your life will be about joy.

    It won't be about your problems,
    your desires, your needs, your fears
    your knowledge, your opinions.
    It will be about joy.
    It will be about God,
    Guru, Consciousness,
    whatever word doesn't offend you.

    Much love,


    Kip"
