Being Aware of Being Aware The Essence of Meditation Series
This simple, which encourages a clear seeing of one’s experience rather than any kind of effort or discipline, contemplative approach, leads the reader to an experiential understanding of their own essential being and the peace and fulfillment that are inherent within it. What is the nature of the experience of being aware or awareness itself? The exploration of this question is the subject matter of this book and the essence of the Direct Path to peace and happiness.
The essence of meditation series presents meditations on the essential, non-dual understanding that lies at the heart of all the great religious and spiritual traditions, compiled from contemplations led by Rupert Spira at his meetings and retreats. This obvious, familiar and intimate experience has no objective qualities and is, therefore, overlooked or ignored by the majority of people.
Most people’s lives consist of a flow of thoughts, sounds, sights, ideas, images, sensations, feelings, and so on. Being aware of being aware is the first and introductory volume in The Essence of Meditation Series. This overlooking of our own being is the ultimate cause of unhappiness. All people share the experience of being aware, but relatively few people are aware that they are aware.
Everybody is aware, all seven billion of us. It is in this experience that the peace, happiness and love for which all people long reside.

The Nature of Consciousness: Essays on the Unity of Mind and Matter
Far from being abstract and philosophical, its implications touch each one of us directly and intimately. An exploration of the nature of consciousness has the power to reveal the peace and happiness that truly lie at the heart of experience. Used book in Good Condition. After all, life happens independently of our models of it.
We believe and feel that the knowing with which we are aware of our experience is located in and shares the limits and destiny of the body. I’ve gained deeper understanding listening to Rupert Spira than I have from any other exponent of modern spirituality. Our experience never ceases to change, but the knowing element in all experience—consciousness, or what we call “I”—itself never changes.
The knowing with which a feeling of loneliness or sorrow is known is the same knowing with which the thought of a friend, the sight of a sunset, or the taste of ice cream is known. This is the fundamental presumption of mind and matter that underpins almost all our thoughts and feelings and is expressed in our activities and relationships.
It is a philosophy of conflict and, communities, the root cause of hostilities between families, as such, and nations. As a result of this “matter model, ” most of us believe that consciousness is a property of the body. The peace that is inherent in us—indeed that is us—is not dependent on the situations or conditions we find ourselves in.
In a series of essays that draw you, through your own direct experience, into an exploration of the nature of this knowing element that each of us calls “I, ” The Nature of Consciousness posits that consciousness is the fundamental reality of the apparent duality of mind and matter.
The Transparency of Things: Contemplating the Nature of Experience
We see that our experience is and has only ever been one seamless totality, with no separate entities, objects, or parts anywhere to be found. The purpose of the transparency of Things is to look clearly and simply at the nature of experience, without any attempt to change it. A series of contemplations leads us gently but directly to see that our essential nature is neither a body nor a mind.
As we take our stand knowingly as this conscious presence that we always already are, and reconsider the objects of the body, and world, mind, we find that they do not simply appear to this Presence; they appear within it. As such, it is nothing that can be experienced as an object, and yet it is undeniably present.
However, these contemplations go much further than this. And further exploration reveals that they do not simply appear within this Presence but as this Presence. Finally, we are led to see that it is in fact this very Presence that takes the shape of our experience from moment to moment while always remaining only itself.
