Rupert Spira is a master in several ways e.g. he is a master potter/ceramicist. We often evade simplicity – and throw dust up in our own heart-minds that prevents us from the simplicity of Being and life as-it-is. In several of his videos in answering questions from students he exercises cobra-like focus on not letting the student evade her/his struggle to (not) come to ‘rest as Awareness’. The potter shapes the pot with hands. The outstanding spiritual teacher shapes his/her students by being what they are, and by their judicious questioning.
