New Growth w/ Nikki Walton Ep 8- The Presence of Awareness with Rupert Spira

If you want to know what 'enlightenment' is... listen to this one! Thank me later :) 

Nikki Walton welcomes non-duality teacher Rupert Spira to the New Growth Podcast for a conversation around the true nature of experience and the presence of awareness.

From an early age, Rupert Spira was deeply interested in the nature of reality. He studied and practiced the classical Advaita Vedanta tradition for 20 years before he met his teacher, Francis Lucille, in 1997. Francis introduced Rupert to the Direct Path teachings and, more importantly, directly indicated to him the true nature of experience. Rupert lives in the UK and holds regular meetings and retreats in Europe and the United States. Learn more about him at his website, and check out his videos on YouTube.

Waking Up to Happiness
Nikki welcomes Rupert and asks about how he found his path in life. Rupert talks about his experience of waking up to the happiness found within himself, rather than the outside world. He explores how happiness can be found in the presence of awareness.

“It became clear to me that what all the great religious and spiritual teachings say in one way or another, that happiness is the nature of our being. If we want happiness, the only place to find it is in one’s self, in one’s own being. That really is what self-inquiry is, it’s the investigation into the nature of one’s being.” – Rupert Spira

How to FREE Yourself from Strong, Negative Emotions | Stay as Awareness

Go(o)d Morning!

In this short video, spiritual teacher Rupert Spira points to the fact that even during your darkest, most turbulent moments, Love is (t)here. He says, 

"It's this very subtle change of focus. You don't have to escape the feeling. Right there, shining, not buried in the heart of the feeling, but on the surface of the feeling, the light of your own being is shining. Just give THAT your attention." 

From personal experience, I can tell you that while it's a simple shift, in the beginning, it can be challenging to remember to practice in the moment. But trust me-- the next time you catch yourself mid-fear, or in the midst of a stank mood, or watching anger begin to bubble up, and you remember to notice that there's fear AND Love, or stank mood AND Peace, or anger AND subtle-Joy, you've won. Even if you can only feel .02% of the Love. You've won. And it only gets better from (t)here.  You become more and more aware of the Love that you are, and this Love manifests as your most empowered life. This Love is seen as the only reality.  

Check out the video and let me know your experience with this practice!
