The separate self is a finite mind which believes is a finite mind.Rupert Spira
In this video Rupert Spira expands on the power of the question “Am I Aware?”
This question is a fantastic tool to stop mentation and for the mind to find a restful place, its “home”.
Thank you Rupert.
This is, in my observation, one of Rupert‘s masterpieces and that’s why I love his teachings so much.
Rupert is able to guide you into Awareness, articulating the experience with fantastic lucidity.
Is the “now” moving along a line of time? How fast is it going? In reality, the now is motionless, it’s not going anywhere, it’s not moving, it’s ever present. It’s the only now that ever is. Conversely, it is thought that appears in the now and goes away.
“Time is what eternity looks like when viewed by the mind.”
As soon as thought vanishes, like in deep sleep, time disappears too.
Nothing takes place in time. “Thought” cannot go into the now, it can only think.
With thought, we can go quite to the edge of the now, but as thought touches the now, thought dies.
In this video Rupert explains the experience of “Ananda” or the knowing of being as it is.
Abiding in the true nature of “I AM” doesn’t necessarily have to be a blissful experience.
“Peace is happiness in motion, happiness is peace at rest.”
There are no enlightened people, there is just enlightened consciousness.
