In this latest Rupert Spira Podcast episode, Rupert has a delightfully philosophical conversation with the Oxford Psychedelic Society that delves into many facets of the concept of oneness as the nature of reality, illustrating how we experience it in our daily lives.
With the understanding that we are all one — the essence of the non-dual understanding which forms the basis of all major spiritual and religious traditions — how do we reconcile the fact that we share the same being with the apparent separateness of everybody and everything? And in a world where we do realise the truth of oneness — or infinite consciousness — what are the implications that has for the way that we structure society?
Covering ethics, metaphysics, infinity and the finite mind, good and evil, suffering, love, self-enquiry, the illusion of ego, panpsychism, consciousness, the universe and the Buddhist notion of emptiness, this in-depth and wonderfully illuminating discussion leads us to the inevitable conclusion that is summed up beautifully by the Indian sage Ramana Maharshi: “Your own Self-Realisation is the greatest service you can render the world.”
