The Essential Self
This ebook features meditations from The Essential Self, a weekend retreat in Amsterdam.
The essence of ourself is that aspect of ourself that remains consistently present throughout all changing experience. Thoughts, feelings, sensations, perceptions, activities and relationships are continuously appearing and disappearing, but knowing, being aware or awareness itself remains. That alone qualifies as our essential self. To know the nature of our essential self clearly is the direct path to the peace and happiness for which all people long above all else.
In these meditations Rupert Spira suggests simple, experiential pathways by which we may discover the nature of our essential self. In the first step we recognise that all experience appears to consciousness; in the second step that all experience appears in consciousness; and in the third step that all experience is made of consciousness. All that is necessary is to understand and feel this, and to lead a life that is consistent with that understanding.
The Sahaja Digital Meditations Collection presents a selection of guided meditations led by Rupert Spira at one of his weekend or seven-day retreats. This ebook features meditations which are lightly edited transcripts of contemplations led by Rupert at The Essential Self, a weekend retreat in Amsterdam, in September 2018.
