In this seven minute video, Rupert explains that true acceptance is not a practice, it is not an activity of the mind, but rather it is a natural state of Awareness. The activity of the mind most mistakenly taken for acceptance is actually just another way for the mind to perpetuate itself.
In this very special fifteen minute video, Rupert takes a seeker step by step into a deep reflection of “I Am” revealing the ONLY “thing” we can ever know with complete certainty, which so happens to reveal our true nature as well. If you have ever felt as though you have a difficult time recognizing the Self or have questions or doubts about our true reality, then this video is for you. Let’s watch…
Most people believe that Enlightenment or Awakening means the end of the ego. In this very short four minute video, Ramesh Balsekar explains that in actuality the ego remains after Awakening and for the entire duration of the body. Let’s listen carefully…
Ramesh Balsekar is a direct desciple of the late Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj. He also became one of Maharaj’s favorite live translators and did so for several years until Maharaj’s death and went on to write several books containing Maharaj’s teachings and discourses.
In this 9 minute video, Adyashanti speaks on the resulting reality of living outside of the mind (person, ego). He expresses that one of the most valuable benefits is the realization that most of what we (as the mind) think is important is really of no importance at all. This allows us to begin to breath and experience the freedom that we truly are.
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!
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 short 5 minute video from Rupert, he explains to us why sometimes there may seem like there are contradictions in his teachings. He explains that there are not really contradictions but rather a change in context to provide a more meaningful teaching for a particular seeker. See how Rupert explains it…
This video clip from Rupert may be only 3 minutes long but it provides a very different perspective on one of the most misunderstood concepts, even by those with decades of study and spiritual practice.
This video from Jac may only be two and a half minutes long, but the truth it points to is immeasurable. Jac helps us to realize that regardless of one’s idea of enlightenment, the reality is that there is no such thing as enlightenment.
For anyone who has been on a spiritual search for any length of time, we often run across this saying that there is “nothing we can do to realize the self”. In this eight minute video from Rupert Spira, he tackles this issue and provides an intelligent and wise response which helps us understand the paradox between this saying and the tendency to want to do something.
In this fantastic ten minute video, Nada explains that whether we know it or not, almost all of us base a portion of our worth on the opinions and approval of others. The truth is that we give them that power. And just as we give them that power, we can also choose to take it back. Let’s listen to this freeing message…
In this super short 2 minute video, Gangaji shares with us that perhaps the best answer to “What is Enlightenment?” is to actually give up all definitions surrounding the concept of enlightenment. Great video of this often asked question.
In this video, Rupert uses his AMAZING logic and metaphors to explain that there is only one awareness. What makes it seem as many separate aware beings is only because of the limitations of the mind and senses.
In this 8 minute video, Adyashanti explains that many practices encourage the elimination of desires as a path to freedom. He explains that in reality, this is a mistake and quite an impossible task for the ego. What should be explained instead is that “Desirelessness” is actually a bi-product of “Awakening” or “Realization”.
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 super short 3 minute video featuring an audio clip from Alan Watts we are asked to think about the mistake that is made in our society between our measuring devices and confusing them with what ACTUALLY makes things happen. Let’s listen in on Alan as he explains…
In this 5 minute video clip, Rupert talks about a common misconception that we have a small “I” that needs to be dropped or gotten rid of so we can experience the freedom of our true nature. Rupert explains in very clear terms that this small “I” doesn’t really exist but that it is only a fictitious limitation on the infinite consciousness that we are.
This short 4 minute video reminds us of the words spoken by Nisargadatta Maharaj on how he came to realize the nature of reality.
