A Meditation on I Am
'Rupert Spira is one of the great souls. Read his books, and be clarified.'
Coleman Barks, translator of Rumi, including Soul Fury
A contemplative poem about the intimate, impersonal, infinite nature of being.
In A Meditation on I Am, Rupert Spira contemplates the essential nature of our self before it has been conditioned or qualified by the content of experience. It is a poem, a prayer and a hymn of praise to the simple fact of being that is the source of the peace and happiness for which we long above all else.
For seasoned spiritual seekers and newcomers alike, this meditative poem explores and celebrates the truth of what we essentially are: the awareness of being that shines in each of our minds as the knowledge 'I am', which is temporarily coloured by experience but is never modified, changed or harmed by it.
★★★★★ "I do not exist but am not non-existent" RS

A tiny little book filled with nuggets of all that matters but is not matter. A luminous love story of you, me, all that is, all that has been and always will be. You can't go wrong with any book written by Rupert Spira. I've read just about every book of his and listened to most of his teachings and meditations, yet still do not tire of the way he shares the knowing of our true being. This book is no exception.
★★★★★ A Work of Beauty, Illumination & Love

I cannot heap enough praise on Rupert Spira. He beautifully and majestically expresses the inexpressible in this book. For those familiar with meditation and prayer, just holding this book can be enough to evoke the sense of Presence or Being to which "I Am" speaks. And if read aloud, this book may have the added impact of bringing to life these words. Note: this is a small book, but at once timeless and priceless.

A book of thoughts on what I am is and is not....One can; read, meditate, contemplate, on small or large portions. It will be a book I go to many times for peace of mind.

Great Poem by Rupert. If you are familiar with his other work you will enjoy this. Direct and concise while open at the same time. What isn’t said shines through as he paints a wonderful picture.
