This I Must Share

Apr
09

I posed this question to David and this is how he answered it. Is it true that you are not enlightened unless you witness 24 hours? Thank you so much David for showing me the answer to my question. You are the first person who ever helped me see the answer to my satisfaction. Either there was no one to ask or it was evaded or not clear to me. Telling me that I AmThat wasn't enough. I knew that, but I thought being That meant seeing it all the time.

David is taking me through a Self inquiry. I am enclosing my answers in brackets.

Divine Relationship

Apr
03

I’ve been inquiring within why I keep having these relationships with the Divine. Why can’t I get past this? This is what came up. I needed to know it all, to have a relationship with the Divine in all his/her aspects.

How to Express This?

Apr
02

Oh David, how do you express this? This outer love pushing in on me and taking me over, this inflowing wave and this outflowing wave meeting and passing through each other out into infinity, encompassing everything. As you say, "you become meditated by it." All there is, is this meditation, this love, but also, this body mind, this little green bush, these clouds. Consumed, lost, possessed, nothing, but everything. It doesn't make much sense when you read it back. But, that's being fixated in the mind, as you say. You get the drift. Last evening was crazy. Nothing could satisfy.

Innocent Little Spider

Apr
01

It was such a beautiful day, I made a quick salad and brought it down to Eco-Village pond and watched the sunset. As I was sitting there on the deck, a little spider suspended itself in space, hanging from the roof of the deck. I thought to myself, that's freedom, hanging in space like that. But, did he know he was free? No, he didn't. Only us humans have the capability of knowing such things. But, you see, this spider was perfectly content and happy in his innocence. We all were graced with the ability to know who we are, and then surrender our mind in total innocence.

In Pursuit

Mar
19

Oh Mother, oh Devine Mother, you stalk me like your prey. You won’t leave me alone until I know all of you from your first sprouting out of Shiva to the grossest aspect of you, your physical body. You want all of me until you masticate me and swallow me up.

The Written Word No Longer Exists

Mar
06

I remember awhile back having one of those ah ha experiences where I realized that all written words, unless they are being written in this very moment, are all from the past. And since the past, and for that matter the future, doesn’t exist, because only this moment exits, then all written words come from a moment that no longer exists. It’s all old hat, in other words. And I love to write!

The Why of Idol Worship

Mar
04

I believe that the reason idol worship came into being is because the ancient spiritual beings who were fully enlightened in times of old understood the creation to be one with themselves, totality, wholeness, therefore seeing this in their own enlightened awareness, they saw the creation as holy with celestial perception. Seeing an object through celestial perception gave them bliss and joy, it expanded their heart. An object of creation was a part of them.

America the Beautiful!

Feb
18

I don't know why "America the Beautiful" came into my mind this morning during meditation, but I started thinking about a more enlightened version of the song. I always thought it should have been chosen as the national anthem, not the "Star Spangled Banner", bombs bursting in air, just what we need to put our attention on, right! So many things need to be upgraded to suit this moment.

Receiving Darshan

Jan
30

Receiving darshan from an enlightened master is an entrainment with his life rhythm. If you are not in sync with him, then being in his presence will cause you gradually to fall into synchronism with his energy. This is the beauty of a living master, and as David says, your attention on him, listening to his words, observing his countenance, feeling his energy, surrendering into innocence in this moment with him will open that connection. This is the essence of David’s teaching. The knowledge he teaches is secondary.

Transcendent Glory

Jan
14

Imploding in your transcendent glory,
in your love joy, oh Devine Mother.
Dying, melting, dying melting, consumed,
transfigured, lost in your very essence.
Take all of me. Take my life and live it!

I've been noticing that when the Devine Mother consumes with her love light,
the mind naturally bows in peace and surrender.

Fully surrender and open your heart.
