Satsang, the Avatar and the World


Recently returned from a kind of initiative activity in Cuba, which, unlike previous kinds of undertakings, was inclusive of a direct experience of relationship with the Avatar. About that is what is truly important to share with you. Such activity is driven by personal desire, even if to some extent rooted in a compassionate energy. Having David in my life and moving with that in confrontation with the world created an intensification of personal psychological pain; but then this is intimately related to the infilling of Bliss which is available in Satsang with David.

Gratitude Unexpressed


Very touched yesterday by David's frank and true words that, for me, meant that we open ourselves to crystalizing our spiritual experiences when we give recognition to wherefrom they emerge. I have not done that for some time now though much has unfolded maintaining a "consciousness connection" with David. So also gratitude unexpressed may not be gratitude at all. I do place my head at the feet of our Master David when grace enables a sudden capacity to do so.

The Old Soldier in Christmas


In days of war he had seen the betrayal of the sons by the fathers,
seen the ravages of nationalism and its unfortunate patriotism.
He had run the full gamut of greed for women and gold,
seen his impoverishment in the field of human relationship.
In time he realized the folly of creating images of himself and others,
seen these delusions are the fountain of conflict.
In meditation he was attentive to the heart awaiting Mother's Grace,
seen sometimes silent heart open pure feeling peace and bliss.

Bedtime Stories for All God's Children


This about some inspiring stories from my summer following the intensive with David in Sedona in April. I feel gratitude for the personal meetings and ongoing relationship with David; for the intensification of experience of the Divine that has been growing and accelerating since we met. There is much more clarification from the Avatar continuing since I was a young devotee of Sri Ramakrishna, who lived in the 19th century, a personification of the Absolute, especially of the Divine Mother Kali Shakti.

Who is she? Who is she?


We have just had a weekend intensive with David. My last instructions were "Write us!". I am filled with sweetness consumed from the Mother - so much refreshment of creative imagination. And yet this experience was conceived in the strict conditions of philosophical investigation, a strange womb one might wrongly think. The theme that emerged in David's teaching was completely informed by creative expression of the feminine divine.

The Love of Shiva-Shakti


In Satsang with the Master a deep dynamic and radical transformation occurs. This is the evolution of a humanity capable of Love. This is what the mastery manifest in David Spero offers. At the present time, I am processing something I heard from David's recent talks, again my subjective imaginations about what he says. It has to do with the incapacity for Love caused by being the accumulated idea of oneself.

An Answer for Lenin's Question “What are we to do?”


This is the second blog entry on my ten days in Sedona with David and a number of others in his immediate circle, as well as a few people new to the experience of the transmission of spiritual power generated in the master's company. I hope you read my previous entry since this one is in fact continuation of that song. What I write is seemingly not personal and rather philosophical - but its not speculative in nature, rather it reflects a direct experience from satsang. When written about later, that process is often punctuated by strong physical and emotional energies.

At the Feet of the Master


Obvious but oft ignored, the simple truth, something does not emerge from nothing. So what evolves is foremost what is involved. And time is insinuated but actually unnecessary. One is reminded of the ancient image of oil flowing unbroken from one vessel into another, never fragmented, from the alone to the alone. Such is the meditation existing now as the clock on the wall has moved some twenty-four hours and I contemplate the holy company that took place with David the first weekend I was in Sedona.

Purposeless Existence as the Dance of Kali


There was a strong sense of group consciousness at the intensive this last weekend. It feels good to get have gotten closer to a few people. It seems most all of us have been spiritual seekers for many years. David is very much like all of us in that he was also part of that surge of interest in Eastern meditation systems during the 70s and 80s, and had himself had relationships with some of the same systems and teachers. Eventually he entered into a long phase of intense personal practice which yielded who he is today.

Chosen, Not Frozen


Ah, another lovely Wednesday night Satsang. What is this thing that happens there with David and our community? The word that keeps coming up for me is "enigma".  Never have I ever felt so confirmed and vindicated in my own intuition.  The transmission obliterates doubt.  There is no inside or outside in meditation - like the Klein bottle enigma:
