It was a hard thing to undo this knot.
The rainbow shines, but only in the thought
Of Him that looks. Yet not in that alone,
For who makes rainbows by invention?

And many standing round a waterfall
See one bow each, yet not the same to all,
But each a hands breath further than the next.
The sun on falling waters writes the text
Which yet is in the eye or in the thought.
It was a hard thing to undo this knot.

-Gerard Manley Hopkins

As I witness and receive this Sun that emanates as David Spero, the saturation grows deeper and deeper. I realize that there is a holographic dimension to Transmission. One flash of Shakti Light encapsulates the Infinite. As much or as little as I may be capable of absorbing, there replicated in my consciousness is the complete rainbow, and the Sun as Giver and the eye that's sees it, rotating in the Heart.

"Infinite is, indeed my wealth of which nothing is mine."
-King Janaka

The shakti affects people in so many different ways, and it can change dramatically from experience to experience. On this particular evening satsang with David, I experienced a very soft, diffuse, quieting energy. However, once I left and began walking up the hill to catch the bus home, the intoxication really overwhelmed me. This beautiful oneness with all things swept over me, and I was light as a feather. Such profound peace! I kept walking way past my bus stop, just basking in the bliss.

I got home, and my energy soon shifted. I was supercharged, and started cleaning up my mess of a room. I went back to my computer and resumed coding, all the while reveling in the intoxication. Every few minutes I had to pause and savor the bliss and peace. At the same time I felt invigorated with a lust for life that I hadn't really felt for many years. I was brimming with positivity, hope, and sheer joy! I felt really excited to go back to the day-to-day work process, which, while I enjoyed my career, had felt so stale for so long.

I have always been amazed by young children, how they're so full of energy and just (often literally) throw themselves into the whatever ridiculous game they're playing. There's no reservation; no hesitation. When they fall down, they might cry a bit, but soon the pain is forgotten and they're laughing with abandon again. They're so unencumbered by the weight of the world that we adults seem to carry as a permanent burden. I sometimes even feel envious of them -- how they can be so happy in the moment. That night after satsang, I felt something like that -- ready to dive headlong back into worldly experience!

The next morning, after peacefully falling asleep late the night before, I awoke to a terrible migraine headache. "I can't f---ing believe this!" I exclaimed. "Not after last night!!??" But I refused to let it keep me down, and willed myself to focus all of my attention on the bliss I felt after satsang. I took some time to breathe through it, bringing David and the Bliss to my consciousness. Eventually, several hours later, the migraine subsided and I resumed my work gradually. I felt happy, though, that I didn't give in to the pain and allow it to completely knock me into a depressing state of attention.

The harsh truth is that this life is not always going to be easy, and will throw you curve balls that can really derail you. One moment you're high as a kite, and the next moment the world is crushing you. But we've been blessed to have actually experienced at least a bit of the Divine Perfection by the grace of the Guru -- it's not just a philosophy that will abandon us the moment Life tests us. And so the next time we get beaten down, if we don't take the pain and calamities too seriously, maybe we can pick ourselves up and laugh at ourselves, welcoming the next moment with joy.

Just thought I'd share an e-mail dialogue that I had with a new friend. I had recommended he participate in one of David's meditations. Afterward we were discussing the meditation, which is actually the experience of David.

Yes, David is the real deal. I'm glad he gave you the verification you desired. I suggest you keep participating in the internet meditations and build a relationship with him, he can/and will help you in any way needed to mature your body/mind/consciousness. Maybe someday if you feel motivated you could attend one of his awakening intensives, you will be glad you did.

"I was hoping he would have touched on your comment"

my guess is that he comments if he feels it neccesary

Did you feel any energy from him? if not you need to keep participating and having dialogues, and gradually the bond will occur. If you did feel energy, do the same. In time the relationship/energy/David will become without division, without any empty space, whole, a solid concrete ocean of the divine, with the flavor of nectar. This is what I experience with him.

Recently there were technical difficulties with the audio and video transmission during internet broadcast; nevertheless, the Transmission that mattered most was not only NOT interrupted, but palpably much stronger!

This was very instructive to me and it leads me to ask if I can ever be "offline" and not "live" w/David Spero?
Once you've been initiated into this Shakti that seems to be a compelling question. What if I could be online all the of the time?

I tried this recently. I sat down to meditate in a dark room and I postulated this, that I was online, live with David and that I was connected to his blessing. Immediately it happened-- the flow of Shakti filled my entire being.

I have noticed that if I just stop and attune at anytime, that it is possible to locate a current that descends through the top of the head. Of course, there are variations in it's strength, but it began to dawn on me that maybe I've been able to locate this energy for a long time, but I didn't take cognizance of it. For sure, David's influence is crucial as an initiatory and awakening power, but isn't this power also native to my consciousness and my heart?

I just have to believe it and have faith that its possible. That seems to be more than half the battle. The senses are so conditioned to outward movement and flux; they rebel against returning to the source. It's like Pascal said something like, "All evil in this world comes from one thing alone, a man's inability to sit still alone in a room."

Sri Aurobindo said,

"In this yoga all depends on whether one can open to the Influence or not. If there is sincereity in the aspiration and a patient will to arrive at higher consciousness in spite of all obstacles, then the opening in one form or another is sure to come. But it may take a long or short time according to the prepared or unprepared condition of the mind, heart and body; so if you don't have the necessary patience, the effort may be abandoned owing to this difficulty at the begining. There is no method in this yoga except to concentrate, preferably in the Heart and call the presence and power of The Mother to take up the being and by the workings of her Shakti, transform the Consciousness.
The more the faith, the more rapid the result is likely to be."

David Spero is a Real Master. May coming into his radiating field of Shakti rip away the curtains of ignorance and let the sun flash into the room.

As always,
profuse gratitude.

Michael
