Welcome to In 2 Deep.
To, Too, and Two are 3 words that sound the same but have different meanings (homophones). Deep or Diip is also a Sanskrit word meaning light or shine. The name is thus a play on meanings.
The banner image above is a playful mixture of symbols representing Agni (start of creation) and Hiranya Garbha (golden egg – the seed and form of the universe). The blue feather is an ancient symbol for truth as the blue is actually an optical illusion. The fish represents this observer.
My professional background is in IT: web application design & development and helping companies make technology choices. My other blog ForNow reflects my interest in science and technology subjects but overlaps this one a little. I recently earned an MA in Vedic Science, reflecting the interests of this blog. I’ve been working off and on writing a book related to this.
I began meditation (TM) decades ago. In the mid-1970′s, I went on a long retreat to learn to teach meditation and deepen my practice. After months of clearing, I began witnessing full-time, then cosmic perception began with a bang. Maharishi verified the experiences and said there would be much more. But I had not yet woken (shifted from ego to Atman). In the ensuing years, more and more opened to perception while I continued to meditate but the focus moved to being a householder, raising a family and pursing a career.
In the mid-2000′s, I left my company and a great deal else left as well. Concurrently, spirituality shifted again to the forefront and I reconnected with a number of old friends. A few, it turned out, had awoken. A little feedback and darshan (resonance) and Self woke up to itself here as well. Probably because of the long witnessing, the next couple of stages came quickly. Dozens of others I knew switched as well, broadening my understanding of the process.
It was during the fall of that key year, 2007, that I started this blog. As such, it reflects my own process and things that arose in myself and those I knew. I’ve found writing and journaling a useful medium for processing the shifts underway. That process of growth and integration continues and I expect the sharing to as well.

The name I sign with is a nickname I was given by an awake friend soon after I shifted. We later discovered that in Hebrew David-ya means beloved of God. In Sanskrit, Da-vidya means giver of knowledge. I put the name in the posts because some articles are ‘lifted’ without a link back and some people search the name to find the blog. Other images on this page represent other older nicknames.
I hope you enjoy what is shared. Subscribe under Welcome if you’d like automatic updates of new articles.
