In this 9 minute video, Rupert dives in to explaining that awareness only sees itself and therefore must transform itself into “other” in order to experience the subject/object relationship and have the ability to experience anything other than itself. Sounds confusing, but Rupert describes the process in an understandable way….
In this 10 minute video, Rupert takes us on the journey of creation of mind and matter. In the process he also explains how infinite, unlimited awareness can take on the shape of limited awareness and how this creates the illusion of separateness.
In this very simple to understand video from Rupert, he describes suffering as a messenger that lets us know each and every time we have taken ourselves to be other than what we truly are. It is a way for the mind to tell us that we are taking ourselves to be a separate self that is unhappy with a particular situation, much like a toothache is designed by the body to tell us that we need to take care of that physical problem. Brilliant!
In this 9 minute video from Rupert, he explains how a teacher or guru can help the “self” recognize itself (or Awaken). His carefully worded answer to this common question also explains why some teachers prefer to help by providing guidance, initially regarded as dualistic, in order to provide “custom” pointings that are more meaningful to the individual. Very interesting!

In this 10 minute video, Rupert talks about the three stages of understanding starting with “I Am Something” to “I Am Nothing” to “I Am Everything” until finally one realizes that even “I Am Everything” is not true and what we are left with is something that can not be described by the mind. That is why we keep hearing that what we are can not be described.
In this 7 minute video, Rupert takes us on another logical look at the dream state for Awareness versus the waking state and concludes that there is really no difference. For Awareness, all the different states are just a dream.
In this super short video by Rupert Spira, he explains that believing in Advaita or Non-Duality can often just be the ego masquerading as understanding. The realization of the “Truth” is not about believing in anything but rather an inner realization that becomes the foundation for who/what we are. Very short video but extremely important to understand.
In this 11 minute video, Rupert goes into a fairly detailed description of how our feelings are created and how we can use this knowledge to dismantle the feelings into nothingness.
In this short seven minute video, Rupert explains how desire and fulfillment of desires work. He also explains a common misconception regarding the popular notion of manifesting desires.
In this 10 minute video, Rupert explains that the realization of our true nature has a direct effect on the body and mind and that sometimes the ego can try to appropriate the non dual teaching in order to perpetuate itself. If gone unchecked, this can lead to the acceptance of our unhappiness as a normal function of awareness rather than finding the true cause of the unhappiness.
In this short 5 minute video, Rupert gives us some insight into choice. And by using a simple example, he demonstrates that the choice is actually an interpretation of an experience where there is actually no choice made. In fact, science is now showing that the impulse for a decision happens up to six seconds before the actual choice is made.
In this short 7 minute video clip, Rupert explains that the states of deep sleep, dreaming and awakened are all modulations of the mind within an ever present “Awareness” which is always 100% present in all states.
In this great 7 minute video from Rupert, he answers the common question of whether there is something to do to realize the self or not. The answer will may surprise you… listen to what Rupert has to say…
In this fantastic fourteen minute video, Rupert gets to the heart of who/what we are which in turn completely destroys the fear of death. This video not only reveals the cure to the fear of death, but is also an easy to understand description of what we have mistaken ourselves to be.
Many believe that thinking is the problem that creates a sense of a separate self. In this super short two minute clip, Rupert explains that there is no problem, and that no amount of thinking can be the cause for a separate self because there IS NO separate self. See how Rupert puts it…
In this 6 minute video, Rupert takes us on an intimate look at the true nature of our reality and what we truly are. Since the word “Awareness” can mean different things to different people, Rupert uses the word “Experiencing” to drive home the message.
In this 10 minute video, Rupert explains that there is only Awareness and that it is only through Awareness knowing itself that life is experienced. At first, this may seem difficult to understand until Rupert takes us step-by-step through the process and using metaphors to show that the mind truly does not know anything and that Awareness is always the only point of experience.
