SELF!

I have been reading with interest the experiences of the friends. I thought I would add "my" perspective and understanding for those that might have an interest. I identify with much that has written, many of the experiences that people have had.

I have had many experiences too, violently extreme and beautiful spasms of Bliss and energy, but at some point there was a revolution of understanding. At a certain point it all turned inside out, and I realized something.

"I" was not a human having a wonderful experience of Bliss. "I" rather WAS Bliss having a Human experience.

Today,If someone were to ask my opinion as to what is tapas, I would answer "You are". If someone were to ask, what is Love? I would say, You are! If they asked what is the energy of Being (Shakti ) I would say "You are"

If they asked "what is Enlightenment?", I would say..."You are"...

This is of course my OPINION and it is what my understanding has evolved to (so far) over the years of my association with David.

About 5 years ago, I was chatting with David about this or that experience. After a bit of my prattling on, he interrupted and said "It's YOU...you SEE that don't you? (I didn't). I just looked at him quizzically not understanding at ALL. After a moment he just shrugged his shoulders, and we returned to casual conversation and I didn't think anything of it, for a few more YEARS!

I like to think I comprehend now.

From my perspective these days, all of the wonderful experiences that people observe are their "own" (so to speak) radiance. The radiance of SELF...

These days, my view of the David process is that He creates a bubble or space where you can SEE it! At Last!!!!

It's YOU...you SEE that don't you?

When I first began sitting with David, I was distracted by the Shakti. I was so fascinated with how it stayed with me and came and went. I also was distracted by not wanting it to leave. At times, I thought about how remarkable that this Energy was permeating me.
After my first Intensive, I noticed a maternal aspect to the energy. After having dinner with David and friends, and driving from Los Angeles back to NorCal at night, all the way home, I felt lovingly looked after, imbued as if the Shakti were protecting me. Arrived home and climbing into bed, it was as if someone were lovingly holding me in blissful arms. I felt completely taken care of. Then.. then Shakti stayed with me for two weeks, and it was strong and uncanny. I thought this was remarkable, as I had been with other teachers, but never felt this. Shortly after David returned to NorCal, I began having spiritual experiences, the likes of which were never so strong, psychic and even otherworldly. Still, I was concerned that I was distracted by the experience of Shakti, more so than being aware of It as Consciousness, or expanding as Consciousness as I Am That. Shakti felt like more of an effect, rather than the source of my being, and I interpreted that it was David and not me.
Then, over the course of continually sitting with David, I began to be educated in Being, in Consciousness. At first, I was dense and asked questions that were lower level, such as "What's the relationship of personality to Enlightenment," and "Is there a space between the two that is seen, as one becomes more and more Enlightened. David's answers seemed beyond me. Again, I was so distracted by the Bliss, that I could scarcely hear and integrate what he was saying.
Things have slowly been changing. I realize that I have needed to be slowly cooked in this Transmission, and much more cooking is surely in store. Now, I don't search after Shakti the way I used too, and neither do I become distracted by it. It is always available just beyond the tip of the minds tongue-- which is being carried away so often. It is the Ever-Potential-Present-Moment of Being that is prior to "me" and the mind. It is Consciousness, calmly abiding. I don't need to do anything, rather, "IT," is what I don't do that causes "IT" to arise. I'm sure this is the same for many of you.
I am not as greedy any more. It's becoming more clear that this is thoroughly a matter of letting go, of listening, as it were, where the whole body/mind is like an ear, listening into the infinite potential of Existence, and beyond that into subtler and subtler domains. I have also realized that David is Always with me. The other night he said, that he doesn't experience us as separate from him-- separate body/minds. The Transmission has nothing whatsoever to do with our limited personalities and beliefs, NOTHING!

David said: "Existence itself is Love, Existence itself is thoughtless Samadhi, Existence itself is the movement of Shakti, or energy. For me these are all eternally emanating, all eternally radiating out of That, which I Am. So, for me this movement of Sahaja Samadhi is a multifaceted, and multidimensional consideration; it's not simply quietude, it is not something that is confined to some kind of experience. In fact, it has nothing to do with anything I experience. I could come out as an angry maniac, and still be radiating the full force of God. It has no connection at all with human individuality....That's my Realization."

The last three sentences have really begun to sink in, in the last couple of months, I've noticed IT clearly. The relationship to David is not confined to any experience I have, it was still present, no matter the mood, or manifestation, and had nothing to do with my individuality.
At the same time, I inevitably seem to continue to require being lead through experiences that further convince me that I don't need these experiences. I'm still susceptible to looking for signs, like the little child demanding that God reveal herself. I sometimes get desperate and impatient and feel like I'd better get Enlightened, or else(!), or that it better happen sooner than later, because I'm sick of this dumb-ass mind in the bardo (intermediate zone) where I continue to unconsciously create and suffer the illusion. But, the thing is, as David shows, and as Tibetan Masters have been saying, Enlightenment Is Continually Unobstructed and Present, Always, and in All-Ways. It is Consciousness, Itself.

I feel this when I am in the wonderful company of you all, as well, I feel a profound ambience of Union (yoga). Our hearts open together and we feel and realize that we are that Radiant Transcendent Love that outshines every contraction. We are revealed as beautiful flowers opening to the Sun of the Master. That Love is where we all reside, always. That Love reveals a potentiality that Transcends everything. It is what we've always wanted, and we begin to see that it is Real in a way beyond what we could have ever hoped for.

I can't possibly be anymore grateful about that.

Namaste to all.

Last night's transmission took me to another plane of consciousness. It was full of bright light and I was just a mere speckle in the midst of it. The sensation of the body was replaced by the feeling of absolute love. I lost the sense of time as I was bathing in this field of loving light, amazed by its potency. When I heard my roommate's keys in the front door, I was suddenly knocked back into the body consciousness, yet the blissful feeling of David's transmission remained. Well, that's it for now, I thought and went to bed shortly afterwards. As the mind was slowly beginning to drift away, I started to feel the Shakti again.
Then He came. David's form, as beautiful as ever, greeted me with a warm embrace of loving affection. 'What do you want to see?', He asked. 'I want to see the world', I replied. So we took off flying to all my favorive nature spots and other amazing locations glimmering with unimaginable beauty. I was thrilled to have David by my side answering my numerous questions as we effortlessly swam across the midnight sky. Then He finally asked me, 'What do you want to feel?' I looked into His kind mesmerizing eyes. 'I need love. I want to feel all the love You can give me.' With a motherly-like gentleness, He took my hand and spoke ever so softly, 'It's all already in you. Haven't you noticed?' I woke up. The tears came slowly running down my cheeks onto the pillow. David is right, I thought. I do have all His love. Ever have, ever will. I just need to learn to let it flow freely.
I am so grateful, for David has found me when I was feeling all alone in this world, closing the door on love. But I'm not alone anymore. There are many more like me here, yearning to be loved and give love in return.
Dear David's Friends, I love You all.

2/20/10 It was about 1 year ago that I started taking my sadhana seriously. After an intensive with David, I realized that I had to honestly interface with this beautiful Energy, not just soak it in. David says that it is up to each one of us, what type of inner relationship we have with Him and what is truly unique about David is He is always available inwardly in a most profound and powerful way. For me I found that in spending an hour a day meditating with His picture nearby, truly reaching with my heart, He responds a thousandfold. A most beautiful relationship forms as I venture to open a little more of myself each day, as His Energy heals and nurtures whatever has kept me unable to feel This Love. Slowly I can feel my being spontaneously respond to the Light, with the slow recognition that there may be such a thing as Oneness. The Light begins to stretch my Heart as my vulnerability gives way to a deepening capacity to feel and respond to the Light as It integrates more and more into my daily life. As I continue to open and love, the Light brings me more and more ecstatic and blissful experiences. I start to see the world, through This Love.

When I first stumbled upon David's videos on YouTube I was struck by the beauty, purity, aura of light and clarity of His teachings. Then reading His ekstatic essays on His webpage, then His book, then attending online meditations I was more and more amazed and enchanted. His wisdom was shattering and deconstructing my intelectual "understandings". Wonderful Shakti transmissions were comunicating living Reality. Also I realized how painfuly separate I was, avoiding relationship.
I dreamed how great it would be to meet David in person. And all of a sudden - I was in San Francisco, sitting in His Presence, wrapped in His Love, sweet energy pouring into me. I felt welcomed, blessed, and embraced by His Love.
The beauty of it was breathtaking, and it was like an answer to all my wantings, all my spiritual investigations.
Now, there is nothing else to look for, nowhere else to go. All I want is to surrender completely and let this Divine Love burn me, dissolve and live through me.
I want to express deep gratitude and love for David, for leting me taste Divine Love, for leting me sit in His Beautiful Presence.
I also want to thank all friends who warmly welcomed me, especially Orley and Abha, who was very friendly and helpful.
Love to all of you, Namaste
