  1. Hi Gillian, I had posted on the  I AM thread that I was intrigued by Advaita Vedanta and the Swami I watched on youtube. That is still true. However, I found a new Swami by the name of Sarvapriyananda who is more in depth. His series is called "The Ultimate Truth". For some reason, the "get their quickly" approach of Rupert Spira comes in second behind these Indian Swami presentations. They don't care that you understand quickly. This Swami also has great respect for all religions and can discuss their aims with respect. That really appeals to me. While Rupert Spira is headed towards the same goal, this approach works best with my thinking and my personality. This Swami still makes the case that "all is consciousness" for some reason I am not troubled by it when he expalins it. I will say I still have no answer to the question:  Consciousness seems to be happy thinking us up. What is it that we "thoughts" get out of this arrangement? My life is dominated by a wish for fairness. Being "just a thought in the mind of consciousness" doesn't seem quite fair to me. Daniel

      Thank you for this lovely sharing! I have added his name and this series to my 'to watch' list (I've recently made a list on Evernote with all the teachers, documentaries, and books that are recommended to me as I tend to lose track!).

      I really like what you've written here, saying that the importance is not on understanding quickly and that all traditions can be discussed with respect. It's very true that different people and personalities resonate with different teachings. I will certainly give this Swami a listen 🙂
