This 10 minute excerpt is from Deepak Chopra’s book called “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success.” Although the book presents concepts that are more or less valid, this particular section speaks on the very important principle of detachment. Most of what is discussed here can easily be supported in non-duality and offers an extremely interesting view of attachments and detachment.
In this 14 minute video from Rupert, he reminds us of the absolute certainty of Awareness and that in reality there is no such thing as an inside world and an outside world. All appears to exist because of our knowing of it, and yet we do not need this relationship to experience ourselves as we truly are.
In this brilliant 10 minute audio on understanding depression, Rupert explains in very simple terms exactly what is going on when one feels overwhelmed with thoughts and feelings of gloom and doom for extended periods of time. He then explains what one can do about it. Let’s listen in…
In this eight minute video, Rupert describes the workings of Synchronicity in a non-dual world. After describing how synchronicity comes to fruition within the context of the “Consciousness only” model, he goes on to explain how prayer can work on a non-personal level.
In this amazing seven minute video clip, Rupert explains that duality and ego are a necessary part of manifestation. Without duality or ego there could be no experience of the “physical” world. It is our relationship (as consciousness) with the ego, when we believe ourselves to BE the ego, is where the problems begin. Let’s listen to Rupert’s simple explanation…
In this cute four minute animation we find Frick and Frack discussing the fact that we can still experience moods, anxiety, fear and stress after realization. The greatest advantage to these cartoons is that it allows us to focus more on the MESSAGE, rather than the credibility or character of the messenger.
This is Part 5 of this discussion of our true nature between Frick and Frack.

In this wonderful thirteen minute video, Rupert covers a lot of ground starting with the explanation of acceptance at the Awareness level and the ability to say “no” on a dualistic level. He goes on to explain how the very nature of duality prevents the finite mind from resolving any inner or outer conflicts we may have.
In this 4 minute video, we find 10 quotes and excerpts from Nisargadatta Maharaj which points to his core teachings. Nothing is needed other than the simple truths revealed in these quotes to reach the highest knowledge and understanding of who we truly are.
Alan has a wonderful way of explain things without mysticism or dogma. In this 9 minute video, he takes us on a closer look into the unreality of the ego.
Very interesting few minutes to explain that since in reality we are already completely free, there is no need for any “letting go” to take place. Only the separate self (the mind, ego) is capable of inventing reasons for 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 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 six minute audio from Rupert Spira, he gives us the no frills, bottom line of how the seemingly separate self begins and ultimately comes full circle back to find the true “Self”, which has always been in full view and simply overlooked.
In this short 5 minute video clip from Rupert Spira, he does not “beat around the bush” and comes out and plainly states that Awareness does not need a body or a mind to know itself. He goes on to explain that the body/mind does NOT experience anything, but rather that the body/mind is experienced. This video is worth every second to watch…
In this seven minute video clip, Rupert explains that the mistake in our perception is not that we, as awareness, are identified with the body/mind, it is that we as awareness are EXCLUSIVELY identified with the body/mind. Let’s listen to Rupert’s amazing wisdom of non-duality…
In this beautifully produced 5 minute clip, several spiritual and scientific leaders describe the importance for humans to realize the importance of consciousness and the understanding that at the heart of man’s true nature lies the secrets of consciousness itself.
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 amazing 8 minute video clip from Rupert Spira, we explore how it is possible to direct our attention towards source (the self, awareness) and come to realize that it is not possible to place our attention on awareness because awareness IS the source of attention. This may sound like a riddle at first but by spending only 8 minutes with Rupert, we can come to stand knowingly as the awareness itself.
