This 10 minute clip is part 1 of a 4 part interview with Rupert Spira focuses on dismantling the first fundamental illusion that we are the body/mind. Although this clip can stand on its own, there are three more parts to this interview.

In this super short 5 minute video, Alan provides food for thought surrounding the concept of purpose and how our mind reinforces this concept by using memory to string along moments of eternity to create the illusion of purpose.
In this 10 minute video, Jac describes the most authentic way to handle decision making which is consistent with what other spiritual teachers 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 5 minute video, Adyashanti explains what Christ meant when using the words “I am”. Most of the world has mistakenly taken “I am” to mean Christ personally, when what was meant to be conveyed was entirely different. Listen to what Adyashanti has to say…
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 short 5 minute video from Adyashanti, you will hear a message that is the opposite of what most are told about following a path to find the “Self”. He explains that over 99% of what people do to wake up is actually reinforcing the dream state. Short video featuring an incredible message.
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 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.
In this 9 minute audio, a seeker declares that she is tired of all the talking and all the words that she has been listening to for many years and in describing this to Adyashanti comes to the realization that she is just addicted to struggle. This video is about the meaning (reason) behind that addiction.
In this 6 minute interview with Jac O’Keeffe in Arunachala, she explains that she spent years doing a lot of “New Age” practices and can now say that all of these practices actually led her further and further from the “Truth”.
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 8 minute video from Jac O’Keeffe, she explains that anytime there is an “I” involved, it is always based on some form of identification and that Awakening is simply the dropping of this “I” that we all hang on to so dearly.
In this very interesting 5 minute video, Non-duality teacher Richard Sylvester talks about the difference between our night time dreams and our daily “reality” to arrive at the conclusion that they are extremely similar other than that our daily “reality” is more consistent in nature.

In this very short interesting clip of Deepak Chopra interviewing Rupert Spira, Rupert explains that there is NOTHING outside of consciousness and therefore the laws of physics may actually be the laws of consciousness.
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 2 minute video, Jac explains that in the New Age movement we often hear of finding your “Higher Purpose” which can seem like a very constructive and admirable thing to do. However, in most cases (where people are still identified with who they think they are and what they do) it can actually be counterproductive to the realization of the “Self”.
