In this seven minute video clip, Jeff offers wisdom which can help us deal with negative thoughts or thoughts of failure and unworthiness. The mere recognition that thoughts are like sounds which come and go helps defuse their reality so we can resist being drawn in to an emotionally charged story of self pity.
In this 8 minute video, Jeff uses a metaphor to help us understand that “Acceptance” or “Surrender” doesn’t mean that we have to become a passive little puppet, but rather that from a place of deep acceptance, there can still be intelligent, honest action to honor our deep preferences as they arise.
This 5 minute introspective moment from Jeff helps us to redirect our attention to what is living within us.
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.
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.
This 3 minute video is a beautiful production of a reading from Jeff’s new book called, “The Way of Rest”. This is a short mini guided meditation to listen to when we feel a bit overwhelmed by life as a reminder that we are always in the right place for life.
This short 4 minute video from Jeff Foster is a beautiful reminder that we are not our thoughts about ourselves and that we are like a mirror which only reflects the beauty and perfection which is always emanating out of “Source”.
This 5 minute video from Jeff Foster focuses on the problems of looking for happiness from a world that changes constantly, and places special emphasis on why relationships can be so volatile because of this tendency.
This short 5 minute video clip from Jeff Foster explains that emotions, feelings and sensations are never personal or impersonal but rather only a form of energy that we personalize by adding false labels and identifying with it. Having the ability to recognize this can dramatically affect the response we have, if indeed there is any response necessary at all. See what Jeff has to say about this…
In this 5 minute video clip, Jeff responds to the inquiry of wanting to know the best practice for realizing the “Self”. Listen to what Jeff has to say…
In this thirteen minute audio, Jeff takes us on a closer look at seeking and what we believe to be freedom through a series of questions that help us to understand that everything “is” already. Because of that, we find that there is no need for seeking and true freedom includes everything, including that which we seek freedom from.
In this 8 minute video, Jeff Foster takes a comical look at the search for “Enlightenment” and “Living in the Moment” to show that the reason it seems so hard is because we are looking for something that we already are and a moment which already is.
In this 8 minute video from Jeff Foster, he expresses the idea that we are always “trying to do” or “trying to get” that we often end up living in this “trying” and completely miss out on the present and what it has to offer.
In this 6 minute video, Jeff expresses that the whole movement to “live in the now” as promoted by Eckhart Tolle and others turns “Living in Now” as a goal that we should strive for. He explains that this is mostly futile advice since in reality we ARE the now and we can be nothing other than now. Of course, the point he is missing is that “living in the now” is about directing our “Attention” to the now instead of letting our minds drift into daydreams of the past or future, but for the most part the principles he discusses are still true and valuable.
In this short 5 minute video, Jeff uses the metaphor of the movie screen (or TV screen) to drive home the point that we are like a blank screen in which the dream of “my life” plays out. Although this metaphor has been used extensively by Rupert Spira and others, Jeff brings us a fresh spin on it by including love into the picture.
In this 7 minute video, Jeff offers some very practical advice for cutting off the power that thoughts seem to have over us. Whether we are searching for Enlightenment or seeking professional help, we are trying to find a way to control our thoughts or change our thoughts or eliminate some thoughts altogether. In this video we find out that none of these exhausting mental gymnastics are necessary for liberation from our thoughts.
In this 8 minute video, Jeff expresses that who you really are is already so and that EVERYTHING is already so. Therefore any conflict or suffering that arises is simply a rejection on behalf of a non existing separate self not willing to accept what is already so. “Awakening” is really only a deep acceptance of life as what you are already. See how Jeff describes it…
In this 7 minute video from Jeff Foster, a young spiritual teacher from England, we explore a different way of looking at the “negative” thoughts and feelings we try to get rid of. Many teachers speak of “letting go” of these thoughts and feelings but Jeff expresses a different way of looking at them which seems more natural and in line with our true nature.
