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”.
This video clip is less than 3 minutes long but contains major wisdom. Jac explains that all of our beliefs are based on the past, therefor they color our experience of the present based on events that are dead and gone. The fact is that none of our beliefs are necessary to experience the present as it really is. See what Jac says about getting out of this trap…
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 short 3 minute video, Alan reminds us that in nature “letting go” seems to be the natural order of things and that we can actually empower ourselves by letting go.
In this 7 minute impromptu video from his home, Deepak explains that all of our views of reality are actually based on “Models” of reality and not based on actual reality itself. He explains that beyond these models we are all actually exactly the same and this is important because understanding our true reality is the only solution for the world’s conflicts.
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.
Here you will find a well produced six minute video of quotes and wisdom from Nisargadatta Maharaj, one of the greatest modern day masters and Jnani.
In this super short 2 minute video, Adyashanti makes a hugely important distinction which answers the very common question of “How Do I Stay As Awareness?”
