Experience Knows Itself

Rupert Spira

“We do not experience a world. We experience experience. But experience is not known by someone or something apart from or other than itself. In other words, experiencing knows itself. Experiencing experiences experience. Experience not only is itself and knows itself but also loves itself, for there is no room in experiencing for an other. Being, knowing and loving….all is that and that is you.”

Every Time I Open My Eyes

Rupert Spira

Rupert Spira

every time i open my eyes
i invite the world to take shape,
and every time the world takes shape
i’m invited to open my eyes
and see the world raw and naked
holding out its hand, calling me into itself
where i am taken into the transparency of things
and find myself transparent there
standing on the edge, looking down and in,
to the dark silent pool in which the world is cradled

and i’m cradled there, held
with all things and hold all things in myself
myself, not a thing in the world but this, here, seeing
in which the world opens, inviting and offering itself
and every time it is seen it dies
and in dying holds out its hand, again
asking to be taken in
and every time i take it in i too die
and in dying i’m known as this, here, seeing

every time i open my eyes
