"We want to get you
out of your mind,
out of the controlled idea
that you are an intelligent
and together person

and into what is here
in this moment
beyond such ideas.

The mind is always
trying to put things in order.
But once the mind
puts things in order,
you are out of touch
with what is here.

Unconsciously,
the mind has an image
of how a perfect person should be
and the mind tries to emulate that.

Not on a conscious level,
you are not intentionally doing it.
But once you do it,
then consciousness
cannot touch you.

Life cannot touch you.

So the first step in surrender
is to be aware of this.
Be aware of how the mind
tries to put everything
into neat little piles
of understandings
and justifications.

Second
is to allow yourself
to become undone.

Allow yourself
to be naked and raw
in this moment.

Experience
with pure honesty
what is here
in this moment
without holding on to
any ideas
of what that might be.

It is this honest awareness
that is the key.

We refer to ourselves
as someone in time.
Someone with past experiences
and memories.

But I want you to go beyond
that thought construct
and truly experience
what is here.

Because what is here
is only here now
and then it is gone.

There is such freedom
just in that realization.

You can only feel this moment.
You can't do it with the mind,
you have to feel it.

Beyond emotion,
beyond the intellect.

Surrender
to what is here completely.
Give up being together
and simply fall apart
in this moment
and experience what is left.

Then
you will truly experience
peace.

You will truly experience
freedom.

You will realize that silence
that is underneath everything.

That silence that only
fully reveals itself
when you have come undone.

Blessings,

Kip"
