"The ego/mind has the tendency
to reduce spiritual awakening
down to a clever teaching.

As though if you hear the right words,
understand it correctly,
get yourself into some positive state,
spiritual awakening will happen.

But this is just the ego/mind looking to feel good,
looking for a superficial happiness
that only reinforces its own separateness.

Spiritual awakening is about
transcending this whole state
of feeling good/not feeling good.
Transcending the prison of being stuck
in this 'me' that is constantly seeks gratification
so that you are freed into unconditional peace.

To do this,
first you build up awareness & Shakti
through meditation,
sitting with enlightened masters
and listening to the CDs

You build up the energy & awareness
so that it is not something you
need to look for anymore,
it is simply undeniably present.

You may feel Shakti
as a feeling of energy moving or expanding,
as bliss, as peace, as silence
as conscious being,
or as love.

And once you feel this,
you can allow it to guide your attention
to naturally fall into this moment.

In this nurturing energy,
you let yourself fall right through your mind
with all of its personal thoughts and feelings
and into the unknown.

There is not really a technique
that can be given at this point.
Instead you feel it inwardly.
Through awareness, you learn
to rest your attention into perfect stillness.

You could say you surrender
every thought to this moment,
or you fully immerse yourself in
silent conscious being,
or that you allow thoughts to
slow down to the point of no-thought,
but these are just pointers.

To the mind,
it is a bit ironic
because it requires
your full awareness
yet there cannot be
any effort involved.

It is an effortless
surrender of everything
so that attention sinks
into pure awareness.

You dissolve into
consciousness itself
and drift into unfathomable peace.

Much love,

Kip"

clever teaching

The ego/mind has the tendency
to reduce spiritual awakening
down to a clever teaching.

To "do" this,(Ha ha)
first you build up awareness & Shakti
through meditation,
sitting with enlightened masters
and listening to the CDs

And once you "feel" this, (Ha ha ha)
you can allow it to guide your attention
to naturally fall into this moment.

In this nurturing energy,
you "let yourself" fall right through your mind (Ha ha ha ha)
with all of its personal thoughts and feelings
and into the unknown.

Instead you "feel it" inwardly. (Ha ha ha ha ha)
Through awareness, you "learn
to rest your attention" into perfect stillness. (Phew!)

You could say "you surrender" (Phew again!)
every thought to this moment,
or "you fully immerse yourself" in (Whew!)
silent conscious being,
or that "you allow" thoughts to (Whew again!)
slow down to the point of no-thought,
but these are just pointers.

I am, yet I am not...
