Jac O’Keeffe

In this super short 4 minute video clip, Jac covers a lot of ground in a very direct way.  First she helps us to understand about Dual and Non-Dual language and then gives us a very direct look at the idea of God.

In this very short 3 minute video from Jac, she describes a practice technique to help us become truly “in the moment” when interacting with others and our relationships.  This practice can help us to shake off all of the “history” that is normally associated with relationship interactions.

In this super short 3 minute video from Jac, she explains that often what is labeled as contentment is not contentment at all, but rather a fabrication of the ego for its own selfish reasons.  This short video shows us one of the many ways the ego can use the most seemingly auspicious practices to fuel its own survival.

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 Selfrighteousness, 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…

In this short 5 minute video, Jac responds to a question from Richard Miller (host of Never Not Here) about the statement that we hear fairly often which says, “Nothing is Really Happening”.

In this eight minute video clip of Jac on the show “Never Not Here”, she explains her “journey” from a young age into psychotherapy for many years which eventually led to her search through a multitude of “spiritual” practices, but that it wasn’t until she spent a significant amount of time by herself that lead to the falling away of her illusions.

In this 4 minute video, Jac explains how the idea of a doer rises and falls with the existence of the ego/mind mechanism and that in pure perception there is no question of doership because everything is happening by itself.

In this seven minute video from Jac O’Keeffe, she explains the pealing back of the layers of perception in order to let Freedom (Self, Absolute) flow freely without getting hijacked by the limitations of the mind or play of consciousness.

In this amazing 9 minute spontaneous video from Jac, she explains that there are some persistent thoughts can just be dismissed, but there are also persistent thoughts that need to be dealt with.  In this clearly expressed video, Jac explains the way to deal with these endlessly persisting thoughts.

In this short 6 minute video from Jac appearing on the show “Never Not Here”, she talks about the beauty that we only get the message that is right for us to hear at that particular time.  That’s why when we feel like perhaps we are missing the message, the fact is that we are getting exactly what is needed in that moment.

In this six minute video clip of Jac on the show “Never Not Here”, she explains that without identification there seems to be a preference for silence and a loss of interest for social interactions, but that when a happening is meant to occur, consciousness springs to action automatically.

In this seven minute video from Jac O’Keeffe, she exposes the truth about personal responsibility and understanding what we can do and what we can not do.  This message is consistent with the views of all the teachings of Advaita Masters.

In this short 6 minute video clip from Jac O’Keeffe, she explains that there is no such thing as your thoughts and my thoughts because there is no you and no me.  The belief in the concept that there is a separate you and me is the very first step into ignorance from which all other false thoughts and beliefs can justify their existence.

In this short 6 minute video, Jac explains that even if one has not realized the state of non-duality, removing the labels from one’s thinking process can go a long way toward experiencing pure functioning.

In this super short 4 minute video, Jac reminds us that the person can only function based on stories and that the true “Self” has no story at all. Because the person is a story itself, it depends on stories to uphold its validity. It’s important to keep this in mind because any time we find ourselves caught up in a story, we can immediately detect that we are caught up in a role that is being played and that perhaps this story and this role should not be taken so seriously.

In this 10 minute video, Jac describes the most authentic way to handle decision making which is consistent with what other spiritual masters say about it.  The bottom line is that the mind wants to claim ownership for the decisions that are made and this brings up a ton of unnecessary fear and stress into our lives.

In this short 6 minute video from Jac appearing on the show “Never Not Here”, she talks about her book called “Born to Be Free” which focuses on dismantling the core illusion of identifying with thought.
