“I am the one that sees whatever is seen but I am not made out of anything that is seen.
I am the one that hears whatever is heard but I am not made of anything that is heard.
I am the one that feels or senses whatever is felt or sensed but I am not made out of anything that is felt or sensed.
I am the one that knows whatever is known or experiences whatever is experienced but I am not made out of anything that is known or experienced.
I am the  knowing element or the experiencing element that runs throughout all experience … but what is there in experience other than the knowing of it or the experiencing of it.
All that is known is the knowing of experience and I am that knowing.

All experience is a modulation of my knowing presence, my aware presence.
All that is known and experienced is the knowing of it and I am that.
… {see the video for Rupert’s remaining words}”

In this short (3:51mins) film, Rupert shares a beautiful meditation on the nature of experience, set against the backdrop of a Tortola beach (Virgin Islands), with gentle waves lapping against the shore and a brilliant sun hiding behind a billowing sky. It was filmed while Rupert Spira and Chris Hebard were vacationing at Virgin Islands several years ago.

Enjoy !

Here are Rupert’s other videos in our library. Also, check out his DVDs, particularly LOVE: The Underground River and The Transparency of Things.

You may also be interested in exploring traditions like nonduality, zen & buddhism, or science & consciousness, and more. And teachers like Ramana Maharshi, Dalai Lama, or Eckhart Tolle and more.
