Rupert Spira Videos

In this lovely little 5 minute video, Rupert helps us understand that any sense of “peace” that can be disturbed is only a state of mind that needs to be maintained by the mind and it is very easily disturbed. Let’s listen as Rupert describes a more permanent sense of peace that is always present (even when we don’t know it) and available to us…

In this lovely 11 minute video clip, Rupert is asked the question,”Is self inquiry selfish?” He responds by explaining that not only is self inquiry NOT selfish but it is actually an act of love. Let’s listen to Rupert’s words of wisdom…

In this twelve minute video, Rupert responds to a questioner who wants to know what purpose there is to suffering and why it was created in the first place. The first thing that Rupert should have explained is that “purpose” and “why” questions can only come from those who are identified with their false sense of self. Once the truth is realized, there is NO QUESTION of “purpose” or “why” questions. However, in this video Rupert tries to explain how suffering comes to be. Let’s listen…

In this great 10 minute video, Rupert explains that when we approach reality from a process of thinking then we call reality “Consciousness”. When we approach reality with the heart (feeling), we call reality “Love” and when we approach it through perception, it is called “Beauty”. All are exactly the same reality but seen through different lenses. Let’s focus our attention on this wisdom…

Did you know that your Awakening may have already taken place?! The fact is that there are countless beings out there that have actually realized their true nature, but because the mind (ego) seems to return now and then, they are still waiting for an awakening to happen.

The FACT is that Awakening is only a stage in our spiritual evolution and that once Awakening has taken place, integration of our new understanding in our daily lives is something that must include vigilance until our body’s dying breath. Let’s listen to what Mooji and Rupert Spira have to say…

In this great little 8 minute video, Rupert replies to a thirteen year old boy who wants to know, “If awareness is the fabric of all things like humans and chairs, does that make awareness alive or dead?”. Rupert explains that questions like these come for those who still see the world as an observer of the interactions between dead objects, when in reality consciousness (awareness) and existence (everything that exists) can ONLY arise together. Let’s listen…

In this enlightening video clip, Rupert explains the implications of having a non-dual understanding. He reminds us that the primary implications are peace, happiness and fulfillment that are not the result of anything happening, but rather as an essence of our true nature. Let’s listen…

Many people have the idea that once one has realized their true nature, all of the problematic thoughts and feelings just magically disappear. In this inspired 9 minute video, Rupert explains that our beliefs and feelings have been created over decades so we need to face them and transcend them over time from our new understanding. Let’s watch…

In this inspired 12 minute video, a man would like to know ‘who’ experiences the contraction of consciousness into a finite mind so Rupert uses a metaphor to explain how Consciousness is the only one that can experience anything at all.

In this enlightening 8 minute video clip, Rupert covers a lot of ground in helping us understand the two modes of consciousness, how the nature of consciousness and the finite mind are hard wired to function a certain way and how we can celebrate that in our decision making process. Let’s listen…

In this insightful 8 minute video clip, Rupert reminds us that after realizing the truth about our true nature, there is a period of integration into our lives. During this integration period many emotions may occur that seem very real, but we must remember that emotions always include a story from our false sense of self. Let’s listen…

In this truth filled 12 minute video, Rupert explains that very often, the advice to “abide as the self” is not enough for most people and that some investigation of experience is necessary. Let’s listen to his wise advice…

Most of the content of this video is focused on the nature of Awareness and that Awareness can not know itself as subject-object because it is never not known. Please note that Rupert uses “knowing” and “awareness” interchangeably for the purposes of this video.

In this truly inspired audio clip, Rupert explains in extremely simple terms the true nature of our reality along with a beautiful description of our true essence as the Unchanging, Ever-present Awareness. Let the inspiration begin…

In this wonderful clip, Rupert explains that because of the limitations of our mind, it is not truly possible to see the world as it really is. Through self-realization, the belief about the relationship between mind and the physical world may go, but the illusion that we experience will ALWAYS continue until the end of the body. Let’s listen…

In this FANTASTIC 12 minute video, Rupert responds to a 13 year old boy who asks, “Why do we lose a sense of time when we are sleeping?” He explains the workings of “time” is such simple terms that even a 13 year old boy can understand. Let’s listen in as Rupert dismantles the existence of time right before our eyes…

In this great 10 minute video, Rupert helps a seeker to understand the neti-neti process, the recognition of Awareness and most importantly, the recognition of the nature of this Awareness. Rupert explains that enlightenment is not an event but rather a recognition that can never be claimed by a “person”. Let’s get started…

In this lovely 7 minute video clip, Rupert responds to a man who has been to several retreats and feels he is doing something wrong because he is not getting it.
