In this 10 minute video, Rupert responds to an inquiry about the difficulty of remaining in our true position once the eyes are open versus when the eyes are closed. Rupert explains that due to our conditioning, it takes time to overcome our tendencies when the realm of sight is introduced in our field of perception.
A very common question among seekers involves the idea that they can’t seem to locate this “Awareness” within themselves. In this 10 minute video from Rupert he uses his simplistic method of teaching to help anyone realize the “Awareness” at the center of all experience.
In this 9 minute video, Rupert responds to a question about perceiving. Because of the mind’s ability to wear the mask of being the perceiver, one can get confused and feel like perhaps there is a perceiver that can be perceived. Rupert uses his wonderful teaching method to help remove the confusion.
In this exceptional 5 minute video, Rupert cuts through all the falsehoods by pointing directly at one’s nature. When asked what the difference is between one being and an enlightened being, Rupert quickly points out that there is no such thing as an enlightened being and that the only difference between those who realize this and those who don’t is simply false conditioning.
In this wonderful 5 minute video clip from Adyashanti, he helps us remember that when we move from the world of the mind to the world of our true nature, we automatically start feeling a deep appreciation for “What Is”.
In this 9 minute video clip from an interview by Chris Hebard, Jeff explains that as the identity called “Jeff” he failed miserably at “Awakening”, until the day one simplest of simple realization took place which triggered the falling away of his seeking.
In this short 3 minute video clip from Francis, he replies to the question about the meaning of self inquiry by explaining that it is an inquiry into the imagined separate self.
In this 5 minute video from Adyashanti, he talks about the concept that it is the mind’s game to be at odds with itself to insure its survival and dominance but that in each one of us there is also this spark of intuition that keeps us going on much deeper level of existence. Listen to how Adyashanti explains it…
In this 6 minute audio clip, Adyashanti invites us to discover all of the qualities of awareness. Even without being focused on “Awakening”, everyone has the ability to experience awareness within and by spending more and more time directing our focus on awareness, we can get to know all of its wonderful attributes and qualities. Listen to what Adyashanti has to say about this…
In this short 5 minute video from Rupert, he explains to us why sometimes there may seem like there are contradictions in his teachings. He explains that there are not really contradictions but rather a change in context to provide a more meaningful teaching for a particular seeker. See how Rupert explains it…
This six minute video from Jeff focuses on the fact that most of us are continually judging the moments of our lives as desirable or not desirable, positive or negative, acceptable or not acceptable and so forth. Jeff helps us realize that this particular way of living will be exactly the same when we reach that nirvana that we imagine for ourselves known as “someday”. He invites us to look at things differently and start saying “yes” to our life in this moment.
In this 10 minute video from Rupert, he explains that at the source we are all the same but that our objective experience is different. That is why your thoughts are not my thoughts, but by understanding our true nature, we can always try to meet the “other” from the same source of our being.
In this 13 minute video, Rupert helps us to understand that those who seek to get rid of desire or get rid (or control) fear are on a futile quest since desire and fear are the very nature (or attributes) of the person (separate self, mind). The only way desire and fear can ever be shed is through the ending of the idea of a separate self.
In this 10 minute video from Gangaji, she helps us to understand that most suffering comes from the belief in a story of being a victim of some kind and goes on to helping us to bring about the end to this type of suffering.
In this 10 minute video clip, Rupert explores the belief “I am the body”. He explains that this belief is not altogether untrue and that through a simple exercise (that he presents) we can transcend the belief that we are exclusively the body/mind.
In this 15 minute video, Rupert replies to an inquiry wanting to know how to stay as Awareness in all situations. His reply is not so much directions on how to do this but rather the realization that there is no actual separation between Awareness and the situation.
In this 10 minute video from Jac, she expresses that once there are codes or methods of behavior that need to be followed for a spiritual practice then spirituality is being converted into a religion and the development of a “spiritual ego”. Because this type of ego normally comes with a sense of Self–righteousness, it can be one of the most difficult forms of ego to transcend.
In this six minute video clip of Jac on the show “Never Not Here”, she explains that life’s “events” are truly only stories and that these stories are great fuel for the ego which can lead to suffering. The key is not to identify with the story and realize that the story is not happening to “you”. The story itself is not the problem, it is the identification with the story that causes suffering. See how Jac puts it…
