In this 8 minute video from Adyashanti, he shares with us that just prior to his “realization” he began to notice that everything that appeared before him was always ending which made it much easier to see that there was only one “thing” that was never ending…
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.
This is a beautiful 7 minute video clip from Rupert in which he shares the implications of “Realization” (Awakening) and what it means in our daily lives including the understanding of “Love”.
In this short 5 minute video, Rupert speaks about a common misconception that we hear about over and over again. We are told by many teachers that we need to discipline our attention so it does not slip into thoughts, feelings or psychological thinking that creates the unpleasantness we are trying to avoid. Rupert explains here that when we do this we are creating a conflict within ourselves which actually makes things worse. See what Rupert has to say…
This three and half minute video has 7 Life Changing Ramana Maharshi quotes.
Here you will find a well produced four minute video of quotes and wisdom from Nisargadatta Maharaj, one of the greatest modern day masters and Jnani.
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.
This 9 minute clip takes a closer look at the non-reality of the ego (person-hood) and the role that it can play in our lives. Alan Wilson Watts (6 January 1915 – 16 November 1973) was a British-born philosopher, writer, and speaker, best known as an interpreter and populariser of Eastern philosophy for a Western audience.
This 10 minute clip, Alan Watts taking a closer examination at the reality of the ego (person-hood). He starts out by saying that the ego is an abstract concept with the same kind of reality as an hour, and inch or a line of longitude. It is established at a very young age as a social convenience but the problem is that we treat it as it was “real”. Let’s listen to this amazing wisdom…
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 5 minute video from Adyashanti, he explains that death should not be seen as something to fear since Enlightenment is intrinsically linked to death. Just as humans seem to get wiser as they grow old and increasingly closer to physical death, our awakening is directly related to the death of the separate self (ego).
This 5 minute video from Alan maybe short but it packs a serious punch. As a form of reality check, Alan starts with the assumption of the big bang and leads us through a logical look at our role within the creation of the universe and how this translates into our true reality as human beings.
In this 6 minute video from Rupert, he provides us with the correct understanding to help us deal with other people’s drama, even when they try to pull us into their drama. Very useful advice indeed!
This 6 minute video from Rupert Spira seems innocent enough at first, but upon review it reveals a massive truth explaining where the saying “Using a Thorn to Remove a Thorn” came from and what it means.
In this 7 minute video, Rupert expresses that there are 3 legitimate reasons for using thought and the mind and that pretty much all other thoughts are on behalf of an illusory self. This provides a simple guide to help us identify the times when we may be getting lost in an illusory self and return our attention back to reality.
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.
