"Correct spiritual knowledge
can be useful to a certain degree
on the spiritual path to enlightenment.

But real spiritual practice & meditation
is about willingly exploring
what cannot be known.

So then how can you experience
what cannot be known?

What is naturally here
beyond mental interpretation
that can realize the unknown?

One is awareness
and the other is love.

Pure awareness
has no knowledge attached to it.
It is free from all knowledge.

So you have to be willing
to go beyond what you know,
beyond being the knower.

Which means to let go of everything
that makes you feel safe and secure;
that makes you feel like you know
who you are, what you are
and how things are.

To really explore awareness in meditation
you must be willing to stop
clutching on to these things
to assuming all of these things
you believe to be true and right.

You cannot truly be aware
if you are clinging on to being the knower.

Awareness is too clean for that.
It's too pure for that.
It exists before the words,
before the intellect,
completely free from all of it.

So you have to be willing
to let go of that arrogance
of knowing something
of trying to perceive meditation
through knowing something.

Rather,
allow everything to be
exactly as it is without your input
and just watch.

The other path is love/devotion.

And what can be said about
the path of love
besides it begins with attention?

Love is completely irrational.
It cannot be figured out.
There is no road map.

Love is there,
you allow it to take over
and you are blasted out of yourself
into something so cosmic
it just blows your mind out completely.

If it doesn't free you from your own sanity
then you have not given yourself
fully to it.

Much love,

Kip"
