The Love-Bliss of Devotion, August 18, 2012

David: 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.

That Love is the nature of Being. It’s the nature of your being, of your mind. It’s not just some emotion shut up in some feeling-based corridor of the mind. The Devotion I am talking about is the nakedness of Existence itself, the feeling of nakedness inside of a human body-mind that comes about in Realization.

It comes about during Realization, before Realization and after Realization as well. Before realization, that nakedness of devotion shows up as curiosity. When you are first engaging yourself in inquiry and discovering the spiritual path — which is your road to Truth — that manifests as curiosity, the hunger to understand, the desire to know oneself. That’s devotion! That is a manifestation of the Devotional Impulse already active in you, latently active, now coming forth into Consciousness.

When you begin to Realize, when you find the Path, then Devotion takes on still another significance, which is the felt feeling of release from bondage. That opening, the breath of fresh air that you breathe, the new life that you begin to embrace, is another powerful expression of Devotion and Devotional Consciousness.

After Realization, Devotion is endless. Devotion is infinite because the Heart has come completely unlocked and what is there begins to shine out.

The Love that is the nature of Existence Itself, that is Being Itself, becomes magnified in a human awareness. The human awareness does not filter it down, does not dilute the Devotion after Realization; it allows it to be amplified.

The human body-mind is an amplification mechanism whereby Realization is then shared among people, among devotees, liberated or un-liberated – it doesn’t matter.
