The Inner Revolution

"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"

Yes, yes, yes

"..... the willingness to feel it,

Yes, yes, yes, Kip.

Nor to change the experience, nor to try to manipulate it, or fix it, or run away from it....but to simply allow it fully.

And when the wave subsides, one becomes aware of the pure space that held it, gently, oh ever so gently.....

And when allowed fully, it {the content} is seen to be not different/separate from the space {consciousness} that holds it.
