"Awareness is not concentration.

Concentration is narrowing your attention
on one particular object,
shutting out everything else.
Concentration is something you do with effort.

Awareness is not fixating attention
on a particular object but rather
relaxing attention into attention itself
as all-pervading consciousness.

It is not a doing,
but rather relaxing back into what
is already here.

Awareness encompasses everything,
allows everything
and in that allowing,
everything becomes one.

Without the allowing of what is here,
you cannot be fully aware.

The beauty of awareness is that
anything that is in the field of awareness
gets transformed back into its
essential nature of peace.

The sense of separation between
object and awareness dissolves
and the apparent object itself
merges into consciousness.

If you feel a particular emotion
or a painful experience,
in allowing that pain or emotion
to rest in your awareness,
it gets transformed into peace.

Whatever you resist, whatever
you remain unconscious to
or distract yourself from
continues to hurt you,
continues to dictate your life
and lead you further into
separation and stress.

So if there is unhappiness,
know there is something there
you are unconsciously resisting.

The moment you can be honest
of its presence and allow it completely,
then awareness transforms it into peace.

There might be a tug of war that takes place
between the ego and awareness,
between resistance, control and surrender.
But if you persist in that allowing
everything dissolves back into peace,
back into its essence
of unmanifest consciousness.

In this way, you feel fulfillment
in the oneness of consciousness.
Even outer situations can get transformed.

And if you continue to rest in awareness in this way,
then even the sense of me
dissolves into consciousness.

Even the body, the mind,
all sense of self, even the flow of energy
dissolves into consciousness,
to a place of zero-point nothingness;
an absence of everything.

This nothingness cannot be defined,
described or understood
except to say it is transcendent
and free of everything.
It is prior to everything.

In this, you are free from all bondage.

Recognizing this to be what you are,
you live in freedom.

Much love,

Kip"
