In this 10 minute video from Rupert, he uses two metaphors to answer two of the most common questions about our search for “Enlightenment”. Using the metaphor of John Smith to represent “Awareness” and King Lear to represent the person we believe ourselves to be, he very logically explains why ignorance of our true nature causes all of our suffering and who/what is it that keeps us seeking for happiness.
Finally, a teacher of non-duality is willing to speak on the question in back of everyone’s mind, “how does non-dual teachings apply to the mentally impaired?” In this 10 minute response from Rupert we witness an intelligent response that is tailored for the moment, yet retains the integrity of “Truth” and non-dual teachings.
In this AMAZING 13 minute video from Rupert, he explains that to get the best “experiential” awakening it is often best to use duality to awaken to non-duality. He goes on to explain that this approach is the only way to true Awakening because we don’t want to return to oneness as experienced by babies or animals, we want to return to oneness awakened to the true nature of reality.

In this AMAZING 14 minute video from Rupert Spira, he provides the answer to, “How does prayer work after one realizes that there is only one Awareness, one God?” or another way this question is often asked is, “Can Awareness pray to itself?” Since most humans practice devotion and prayer in some form or another, this question puts this video in the 5 star category.
In this 8 minute video from Rupert, he reminds us of a different way we can investigate into the true nature of the “I”, or rather investigate into what is aware of our experience.

In this 12 minute video from Rupert, he responds to a questioner asking about the fact that often her motivation for taking action seems to come from a resistance to “what is”.
