The Nonduality Highlights - 






If you really look,
you will see
you are avoiding
this moment,
you are avoiding
this moment.


It is not that you
are somewhere else
and you have to get
back to here,


it is that you are
avoiding this moment.


If you can really
be honest
and see this reflex
of avoiding this moment,
then you can really begin
to let it go
and drop into this moment.


You can begin
to let go of thinking
and experience what is here.


Our problems
make us important.
Our knowledge
makes us important.


They keep us
separated from this moment.


We hold on to our problems
and what we know
because we are scared
of the nothingness
underneath it.


We are afraid
of being nothing,
of being nobody.


We hold on to hope
and improvement
and 'feel good' quotes
because the present moment
is too vast and empty.


Yet the very thing
we keep avoiding
is the very thing
we are seeking.


The moment
you give it all up
and fully immerse yourself
in what is really here,
there is unconditional peace.


The silence of this moment
completes you.

Yogamates Interview:



Yogamates: Why is meditation music so important and essential to raise


Kip: Because you are influenced and conditioned by everything around you. You
are a product of your environment. 


If you are in a stressful environment, part of that stress becomes you. And sound
plays a big part. People who listen to the radio all day take on a bit of the
vibration of every musician, advertiser and DJ they listen to. You walk by a jack
hammer, a car honking their horn, the loud thumping of a subwoofer base, a
woman yelling at her child, all of these sounds carry a vibration that is moving
through you.


And because most people live in an environment that is not conducive to inner
peace, spiritual progress can often seem quite slow and difficult. [...]


Yogamates: Please tell us about your profound spiritual awakening that led you
to create Ocean Euphoric.


Kip: One winter day, I was walking along the beach with my dog and was
overcome by a feeling of deep sadness, loss, and despair. As I surrendered to
this emotion, completely allowing myself to feel the sensations that were there,
the emotion grew in intensity. 


By the time I got home, this feeling was so overwhelming I could not function. I
sat down on the couch, and immediately I could not move my body, as though I
was put under for an operation. Still surrendering to this emotional intensity, I
watched as thousands of thoughts, dreams & visions flashed before me at
lightning speed and immediately burned away in this intensity. 


At some point I realized that this intensity that I called emotion was in fact the
intensity of consciousness. And every thought, feeling and dream that arose was
instantly burned away in this fire of consciousness. It went on like this until
everything was burned away and there was just consciousness.


After a couple of hours of this, I was able to move my body again. I stood up
and looked over at my kitchen clock, and at that moment I realized that I was
and always had been consciousness itself. That there never could be anything but
consciousness and the idea of a separate me with problems and desires did not
exist. The ego only existed as an action of resistance to what is. 


It was not a thought but a total realization, beyond mind, like an explosion. Just
recalling it now brings waves of bliss up through my body.


For a while I wanted to tell everyone about it thinking they could realize the
same. But most of the time the words were no good. I often came across as
annoying and arrogant.


It was apparent that this realization could not happen through words but
energetically. Something at an energetic level shifted and that was what made all
the difference. 


So began a lot of research into sound. And in the end the only thing I found that
helped you experience unconditional peace was the presence of an enlightened
master, one who had attained the highest states of meditation. Simply by sitting
in their presence, you could easily move into beautiful states of peace and bliss.
Transformation happened fast and effortlessly.


And then one day I found a way to turn this enlightened presence into sound and
the sound into music. It literally just fell into my lap when I was working on
something else and blew me away. That was when Ocean Euphoric was born.
