"Separation
is not your natural state.

You are not separate from
everything and trying
to get to oneness.

You are doing separation.

You are actively
separating yourself
from this moment.

And I am not saying
not to have definitions,
not to call a chair a chair.

All of this happens.
This duality happens
in nonduality.

It is not one or the other,
it the same.

But because you latch
on to the definitions
you do not see the essence
of what is here.

It is not wrong to do this,
but if you want to be free
of stress, of anxiety
and conflict,
it is important
to realize you are
doing stress,
you are doing anxiety
you are doing conflict.

Because the mind
is so active,
it appears that
this is just occurring
and you are simply
a victim of suffering.

But once the thoughts
begin to slow down
and things become
more in balance,
you begin to recognize
this action of separation,
this action of creating yourself
to be a something
against everything else.

Something that needs
to be protected
that needs to control
everything else
in order to survive.

And when you clearly see this,
you can learn to stop doing it,
you learn to let it go when it arises.

Whatever arises,
instead of taking a position in it,
instead of grabbing hold of it,
you simply allow it to arise
and disappear
in the same way
bubbles rise up
in club soda.

They arise in water
and disappear in water.

You feel the bubbles arising
you experience the bubbles arising
but not as something separate.

You allow the bubbles
and remain as water.

You stop
fixating on definitions
and remain
in and as the unknowing.

Blessings,

Kip"
