Bliss of David & Understanding "That"

I wanted to post this exchange between David and I a few days ago. I never gave much thought to "That." It was, I believed, too abstract, too far away. But, interestingly, after David asked me to ponder this, I realized that I may have a better understanding of That than I previously thought. To me, That is love, bliss, shakti and light -- all of the qualities of God or the Guru. I'm not sure if that's the official definition, but that's what It means to me. All of these things, I've experienced in overwhelming fullness just by sitting w/ David. So, yes, I can now say that I know what That is. I don't fully identify as That yet, but I never gave it much thought either. Need to meditate on this A LOT more. Fascinating.

So much bliss today. It's incredible because yesterday I was kinda outta sorts -- didn't sleep well the night before and in a slightly bad mood. And when I attended the online meditation last night, my mind was a little all over the place and wasn't sure if I had gotten as much out of it as I should've. Plus, I had to attend the meditation from my office at work, so I couldn't really close my eyes and get into the mediation as much as I wanted to. But this morning, for whatever reason, I am filled with this very sweet, soothing, nectarous, long-lasting bliss. Mood has shifted dramatically. Bliss is
really penetrating in a good way. Especially through my heart chakra and my face. Very beautiful. And as I write this, it seems to magnify even more. Thank you, David. Needed that.

In that bliss, David, are you beginning to untuit or feel or understand or know that You are That?
Is That within this experience?
Is That what is producing this Bliss, Release, and Flushing Love?

Well, I know that it's not me, so that must mean it must be That. Intellectually, I know that we all are That, but I don't identify as That yet. I mostly associate That w/ you because that's when I feel It the most. Honestly, I've never thought about all this in this way before. So interesting. I must meditate on this some more. Thank you.

Thank you for this lovely post about your understanding of 'I am That'. I was just talking to my mom about this topic over the weekend. I can't imagine at this point what it trully feels like. All I can say is that I've been noticing a shift in my perception of the body/mind. During the week I tend to feel dense when I have to play the role of 'me' while interacting with my co-workers or other people who don't seem to care too much about That. However, after David's blissfull transmissions when I get 'Shaktified', I enter this divine perceptual dimension when I feel 'myself' residing in the life-current rather than the body/mind. That feeling stays with me for a while even as I go on to do other things - as if I were carried by the body-vehicle where 'I' were merely the pilot/navigator. I tend to maintain this feeling of lightness throughout the weekend when I spend much of the time in nature away from 'worldly matters'. Then I feel myself sinking into the body again as the work rutine resumes. So it's kind of up and down, light and dense, feeling of I am That. Yet as I continue to sit in meditation with David online, I'm beginning to experience spontaneous moments of bliss/lightness even during my dense phases of 'being'. So even if I don't identify as That yet either, I graciously enjoy these divine moments when I get to 'taste' that I am That.
