    I sometimes wonder why I bother to listen to other speakers. Great as some of them are, listening to Rupert is like coming home πŸ™

    The foundation of Islam is "There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his Messenger"

    I love Rupert but I can't watch this video. Prayer is simply another way of saying, 'I am able to speak kind words to the other/2nd aspect of myself.' When thine Alpha aspect and thine Omega aspect cannot stand one another, there is no prayer. There is only violence

    Love this teaching and the anecdotal reference about the returning to traditional religion with a non-dualist understanding.

    I'm a Muslim and Ahmed Hulusi's book called 'Muhammad's Allah' 100% correlates with what most of you understand; that there is no god beyond.

    I tried to tell my friends this but they couldn't believe what I said about prayer, that it's about you not your assumed god beyond. This video really puts it simply, and I'll use this simple explanation from Rupert to answer my friends.
    THANK YOU Mr Spira!

    That which seeks and that which is sought is the same. I am that I am… If that's the case then how does one account for prayer?
    Humans have been conditioned… And their perceptions and actions arise out of that.
    We have been conditioned to believe that 'I' am a separate identity with a separate individuality and this hypnosis gets reinforced as we go along the path of life.
    The conditioning makes us believe that I am separate from the creator namely 'God' and I am supposed to pray to him not just out of devotion but to seek for help. Majority of mankind prays to Ask… For they are conditioned to believe that – 'Ask and it shall be given… Seek and you shall find… And knock and it will open'. Almost 2,500 years of programming has now been imprinted into our dna and has undoubtedly become our coding.
    Hence prayer is the only authentic approach to communicate with the so called God. And it's perfectly alright as it serves the purpose of being connected to the source.
    This arrangement has been the understanding and the culture of humanity.
    Till the time a form operates on this program… His approach to connect to God in the form of prayer seems natural… But if that form evolves and realises that he has been hypnotised… Then the veil of the separate identity is torn and one can experience oneself as 'I am that I am'.
    It is only then that the idea of Prayer and praying will fall of.
    It is only after this knowing arises in the form… The desire to pray dissolves… Because then the form realises that everything is happening as per it's own dynamics… And that the form and the formless are the unfoldments.
    This is where praying stops and being begins.

    The 10 latest episodes has an average of 10k views! How is it that the most important thing to watch on youtube for a separate self is one of Ruperts episodes, yet those episodes are not watched by more then a tiny, tiny TINY percentage of the whole humanity? How come?

    "I am that I am!" Thats a great quotation! Tnx. The most nondual moment for me was a few years ago when Rupert speak about how the artist(Painter) investigate the "IS-NESS" OF THE WORLD, and how the mystic(Sage) investigate the "AM-NESS" OF THE SELF. And the artist and the mystic will arrive at the very same core of nondual reality, aka "IS-NESS OF THE WORLD = EQUAL = "AM-NESS OF THE SELF" That was a beautiful nondual moment with Rupert! Is he jewish btw? πŸ˜‰

    I really like how you explain everything Rupert! People reformed the non-dual teachings of the enlightened masters of the past in order to match their egoic states of consciousness. They separated God from who they are and started to pray at "him" and kill and torture the ones who don`t. Complete madness…
