In this inspiring meditation, Rupert Spira (teacher of the “direct path,” a method of spiritual self-inquiry) uses the analogy of a person watching a movie in a cinema to explore the imperturbable nature of awareness. The peaceful presence of awareness, as if watching from a premium seat in the back row, has a view of the person watching and of the movie, and is not affected in any way by the content of the movie or its effect on the audience.
