9/13/10 Having been to every event of David's for the past year, I realize I've gotten "spoiled" with the constant emanation of Grace, Love, Light and Shakti. However this morning I was again overwhelmed while at work. I was typing a work document and started to smell roses. When I looked around to see where that scent may be coming from I started to feel tremendous shakti, overtaking my body to the extent that my arms felt heavy under the weight of the magnificent transmission. Accompanying this was a great feeling of being Loved and Cherished. I had to continue to focus on my work and go to meetings while this Sweet Wave of Bliss stayed with me. Even now, hours later, the heat from that fire is still smoldering.

Jai Shri David...

Tonight, during David's Internet Meditation, a viewer asked David to describe the core of his teaching. To me, the question was so broad and massive that I really wasn't sure how David was going to answer. How does one sum up an entire teaching? My mind flickered w/ possible answers. "The core of my teaching is that realization is a gift," David said. Wow. My heart connected instantly. That was it. All of my years sitting w/ David and the answer was that simple, that pure, that innocent. Profound. My previous notions lay shattered. And, as I reflect on it still, an elixir of bliss washes over me.

I am Divinely Distracted by a great Vision.
I am completely blown away by "who" "David" Is, and I don't mean this in any sort of Neo-Vedantic sense, either. David literally is the Transmission of Awakened Consciousness. This Shakti Transmission reveals all-pervasive potent Consciousness as utterly animating the body/mind in the most extreme impersonal sense, simultaneously igniting pure Bliss- Devotion. This Avataric-Shakti is intensely purifying and spares nothing. All that is not resonant with ultimate Truth is exposed, as Kali's scrimitar slices away the persona, revealing karmic patterns of false identification.

This process that I have undergone with David is the most powerful, compelling, overwhelming and spiritually real initiation into the realm of the 'shining ones.'* In this case, it is the stunning, incomprehensible Darshan of Devi, The Divine Mother, as well as the bewitching irresistible grace of Krishna, the Superconscious manifestation of shimmering, shining, flashing Transcendental Consciousness raised to the ultimate pitch of Radiance Blessing.

I can only resort to astonishment, hyperbole, and bad poetry when attempting to speak it.

"Who's awakened? Consciousness is awakened, not "you"."

"The Power that is released from a Liberated Consciousness is unspeakable." -David Spero

* The term 'Devi', like the term Deva is derived from the Sanskrit for 'shining one'.

Yesterday, I experienced quite a blissful transference of Consciousness from David during his Awakening Intensive...even though I live in Hollywood and the intensive was in San Francisco.

I have noticed this phenomenon many times before where I would find myself suddenly elevated in a state of bliss ... like being naturally high ... and then realizing that David was conducting a program at that precise time. Looking at an image of David or a video during these times amplifies this experience.

It's an inner communion, on a deep level, that these occurrences express, and really point to the true meaning of "spirituality" above and beyond religious sentiments and rituals. They also cause me to draw into consideration what I am doing with my consciousness, exactly, when I am not tuning into David, focussed instead on activities which I later recognize to be somewhat ego-based.

What I notice is that when I sense this inner relationship or become aware of it in the moment, meditation and bliss comes immediately and naturally, with no effort on my part other than to simply be still and quiet. This is the only type of meditation that motivates me now, actually. I am enjoying it right this moment, in fact, as I write this blog entry. It's really just that simple, it appears. Amazing.

Thank you again, David. :)

This entry accounts for my experiences with David on July 7, 2010.

I had tuned into another of David's free weekly online satsang offerings on Wednesday evening, and once again enjoyed an incredibly blissful, spontaneous meditation full of Light and Freedom. No matter how active my mind may be at the commencement of these online gatherings, by the conclusion of the internet programs I invariably find myself coming back into my body-mind and experiencing a type of euphoric feeling I only really feel in David's company.

It's the spiritual event that happened later Wednesday night that prompted me to write this blog entry. Relating spiritual experiences is something about which I have historically remained quite reticent, as deeply personal spiritual events are quite difficult for me to share in a public forum. Further, merely trying to accurately annunciate and describe something of an infinite nature into verbal or written language is an exercise I usually avoid. Yet, so profound was my experience and so moving, I am compelled to record it here.

A few hours after last Wednesday's online satsang, I drifted off to sleep and soon found myself quite conscious in a lucid state. I was immediately aware of a sense of weightlessness, and discovered a great degree of both the normal, physical sensation of light, and also the supernal sort of Light, emanating from the tremendously-sized smiling face of David. David's beaming visage, which appeared quite opaque yet extremely ecstatic, hovered quite close to the presence of a certain B-list Hollywood actor, and my own bodily presence, and the three of us seemed to be both floating in a universe of stars and in a nature setting somehow at the same time. The following is what I cognized in the midst of this lucid affair, even while I was actually experiencing it.

I became aware that this actor was comparing two "parallel universes" of himself ... one which had brought him into David's satsang, and he was quite radiating with gratitude at his recognition of that priceless blessing. That universe was very bright, very beaming, very Real. The other universe was ... of nothing particularly special. The actor had "chosen" the universe in relationship to David, and was completely in a state of rapture and grace; it was very obvious. What blew me away about this whole scene is that there was this music playing that seemed to be generated within and emanated from the relationship between this awakening actor and David. It was a tremendously beautiful, tear-invoking sound ... but it was also the vibration of this transmission, felt throughout my body, that was just out of this world. At the time, I found myself thinking it reminded me of music created by Venetian Baroque composer Tomaso Albinoni (don't ask me why), and so I shall have to go through his works and see what I can dig up.

At any rate, my presence in this scene seemed to me to be of an instructional role, as I felt David was showing me how true music is generated ... from this grace, from this Divine Relationship. This went on for about 20 to 30 seconds (from what I can tell), before the sequence passed from my lucid awareness.

What has kept me speechless for the last couple of days is the intensity of this experience. There was simply so much shakti and just true love in this experience that even trying to think mentally about it, discerning its meaning was extremely elusive. Interestingly, though, there was no felt fear of forgetting the lucid encounter, as happen so often with my other lucid dreams.

The other aspect that was overwhelmingly and resounding clear was the degree of soul and music instruction I experienced in that 30 seconds of lucid bliss. I was quite aware I was being taught on the deepest level possible, and this level of instruction was nothing short of avataric. I have been spiritually motivated for the past 20 years, eventually bringing me to the feet of a few of the world's great avatars, and this experience was similar in impact upon me, with at least as much, if not more, of the same sensation of having been blessed by the Divine.

The sensation of the divine instruction, seemingly manifesting in my dreamlike body, was so palpable, the radiation of David's bliss coupled with the incredible music of this transmission ... I can only bluntly and brutishly point towards it with a few paltry words. For me, a musician at heart, to have experienced something of this nature, is cosmically priceless, and was also extremely healing, as I had begun to lose motivation in music in general for its lack of real spiritual power, or presence.

In this sequence, David seemed to wordlessly convey to me, a multi-tiered divine instruction of the blessing-in-itself and nature of the Divine Relationship, the actual functioning of enlightenment, the application of the avatar function, and the demonstration of real music created from "Light"/"Love" itself ... all in about 30 seconds of lucid dreaming. It's as if David innately knew how to best communicate with me, instruct me, at my deepest, non-verbal, non-mental, level and effortlessly blessed me with this darshan. I even remember thinking, during the experience, that with such Divine Relationship, any concern or thought about "enlightenment" would have been profoundly foolish. I seemed to realize that it's really all about Divine Relationship, not about enlightenment at all. I seemed to realize that enlightenment is nothing without Divine Relationship.

I think this is all I have to say about this. It was a monumental effort, for some reason, to be able to package this experience in my mind to write it here; I'm not sure why. But I am extremely grateful for David's continuing availability and regard, and awed by the divinity of the experience I was blessed with last Wednesday night.
