The Knowing of Our Own Being is the first volume in the Conversations on the Essence of Non-Duality series from luminary teacher and author Rupert Spira. This book presents the most fundamental questions about non-duality commonly asked by spiritual seekers and people new to the teachings.In our modern world, so marked by materialism and the disconnection that seems to stem from it, many of us are looking for a higher truth, one that speaks to what connects us rather than divides us. Some of the questions that may initially prompt our spiritual seeking include Who am I? Does God exist? What is the cause of suffering? and What is enlightenment? If you've been on a spiritual path for some time, you may find yourself asking questions like How do I stop my thoughts? What happens when the body dies? Why is there ignorance? and Do I have free will? No matter where you are in your spiritual search, The Knowing of Our Own Being can help.Starting with the introduction, this book places non-duality in its historical and philosophical context, describing both the inward-facing" and "outward-facing" paths toward understanding and abiding as one's true nature. The first chapter begins with the most basic question-"What is non-duality?"-while successive chapters gradually broaden and deepen the discussion, always returning to the essential exploration of the nature of consciousness, but addressing even larger and more complex questions, such as "Is Witnessing Awareness Separate from Objects?" "What Is the Purpose of Life?" and "Is World Peace Possible?"With gentle guidance, writing that is accessible and direct, and clear dialogues, The Knowing of Our Own Being will satisfy and stimulate, helping you develop the confidence that can only come with a truly experiential exploration of these eternal questions, regardless of spiritual background.
