The Love-Bliss of Devotion (text transcribed from video)

Dec
14

Devotion, like the power of Shakti, like the poignancy of Silence - of Silent Being - has a raw and powerful quality about it.

When the restrictions around the Heart melt and the Feeling-Nature is resurrected inside of that Transcendental Being there’s a powerful vulnerability that communicates itself in Love, in an electrifying kind of Love. You can call it Love-Bliss. Again, it’s the raw power of Devotion unhinged from the conventional mind, swinging open its door of intensity.

One can’t be “in” sahaja samadhi.

May
02

To be precise though..., one can’t be “in” sahaja samadhi.

Being “in” anything, including being in the Absolute, would be, from a descriptive point of view, against the very notion of what happens “in” sahaja samadhi.

Sahaja samadhi does not represent still another spiritual point of view or a subjective relationship with Consciousness. It is not a “state of consciousness,” like Cosmic Consciousness, God Consciousness, or Unity Consciousness. Unity Consciousness would be closest to it, if I were forced to choose.

Response to Judy by David

Apr
13

Judy (from Fairfield, Iowa) asked me the following question. Please note that this is a paraphrase of her original question: "Is it necessary to witness 24 hours a day before enlightenment could be said to be complete?" (Witnessing means that Pure Awareness, the Self, or the Absolute has woken up completely in an individual's life.)

Initiation and the Nature of the Absolute (in essay form)

Initiation and the Nature of the Absolute
by David Spero

Within the Absolute arises Its own Power of Initiation. You might ask, "Why?" That's like asking, "Why does the sun rise?" The answer is: it's in Its Nature to initiate, to fire out of Itself, to spread Its glory. That’s the nature of the Self, the Absolute.

"On Meditation," an edited talk by David Spero,
Given on December 1, 2007, Palm Springs, CA.

There are essentially two ways to meditate. The first method requires outer instruction, and what you are generally taught is how to control or quiet your mind. That is the most common method available and, as you know, there are many traditions and paths that teach this form of meditation.

The Fire Beyond Self Realization

The Fire Beyond Self Realization
- a transcribed and edited talk by David Spero (June 26, 2004)

If you feel that the only actually, and fundamentally, real thing in the human being is pure consciousness or the Absolute, then the topics of bhakti, of love, and parabhakti, supreme devotion, are moot topics. They're non-topics, or, in the very worst scenario, they are taboo.
