A Journey of the Living Spirit

A lot of us now have come through a time of throwing one tradition after another. In this culture, we’ve thrown over sexual traditions; we’ve thrown over traditional social relations concerning marriage and the family; we’ve thrown over traditions about economics and working conditions; we’ve overthrown all kinds of political traditions. In most cases, that’s come out of a healthy awakening... https://goo.gl/xP3AZ0

Many actors, musicians, artists and teachers report entering a space during a performance or at work in which connection of the self to the act disappears. At precious moments, I have had experiences in which the act seems to be occurring by itself as a result of its connections with everything else. It sometimes happens when

the goal is to have these holy instants in which one is in reality, thinking WITh the one mind, as twins seem to think together, more and more because being elsewhere  is simply a state of delusion or separation from Reality, or a state of progressive hell, not progressive heaven, as all IS mind.

"I first met Ram Dass about thirty-five years ago at the Hilda Charlton Thursday night teaching and kirtan. A hundred seekers at St. Luke-In-The-Fields Episcopal Church on Hudson Street in Manhattan. Ram Dass had taken my friend and neighbor, Danny Goldberg, to the meeting a week or two before, and Danny had so immediately fallen in love with it that he strongly exhorted me to go. Despite my lingering British bloody-mind skepticism, I went."

There is one religion now, the joined hive mind of egoism moving toward Huxleys "final revolution" and the Hindu Kali Yuga darkness as the ego was chosen to lead;  beauty, harmony, kindness, gentleness, grace goes and the god, the corporation, a psychopath by definition, devours all: its rule: take all from all and never make amends: the human microcosm, "what's in it for me" so that even the thought of helping a "stanger" is so against orders that a passing look of fear arises before denying the need of another.

Death is a Reminder to Live Life Fully

Aldous Huxley says so beautifully in his novel Island, “So now you can let go, my darling…Let go…Let go of this poor old body. You don’t need it anymore. Let it fall away from you. Leave it lying there like a pile of worn-out clothes…Go on, my darling, go on into the Light, into the peace, into the living peace of the Clear Light.”

Making peace with death and being fully in the moment allows you to lose yourself in love – in the love of...

Reflect on Your Motives

You cross the street to avoid looking in the eyes of a homeless woman. Your heart is calling, but you don’t respond. Why? Maybe it’s because you learned not to be vulnerable as a child. You became afraid to be who you are, afraid to listen to your heart. It’s too dangerous. Opening to this homeless woman, even for a moment of eye contact, may make you feel vulnerable as you become aware of what she needs and what you have. Questioning the status quo, however fleeting, may seem just too difficult at this moment; your conditioned response may be to cross the street and avoid vulnerability. You haven’t consciously thought these things, but you have made an unconscious decision, one of so many moments in an urban day. You pass on to buy the paper or get some lunch before going to your meeting.

The Rebirth of a Moment

What do you think God is?

Well, I’ll tell you what I think God is. I’ve been thinking about it. Ram Kir, the Indian mystic, says “A God defined is a God confined.” “What can’t be said, can’t be said and it can’t be whistled about either.” He also said “I am without form, without limit, beyond time, beyond space. I am in everything. Everything is in me. I am the bliss of the universe. Everywhere I am. I am sat, chit, ananda, absolute resistance, absolute knowledge, absolute wisdom.” He’s a straight cat who’s just telling us how it is.

Now when an emotional upset starts, it may start out of a thought process, but then it starts to involve all of the body — the adrenaline and all kinds of chemical reactions. Then often, one of the ways out of it is to work with the body.  For example...

I saw him sit with Eckhart Tolle after Tolle did his trance induction cobra moving gaze over the audience and the memes meant to further the deeper burying of the ego within and the mindlessness of the human being continues forward into darkness. H.B.O. childrens programming has a teacher voice over saying to children "see the hippy? he is repulsive; see him on his hunger strike? see how fast he eats?"  its too late...  the vote was caste for selfishness and Joni Mitchell "is a good guitar player"  Bob Marley "is a rapist" and Hamlet "was depressed because he wasn't exercising" in the place of community: the world wide WEB.

Imagine that being in this love is like relaxing endlessly into a warm bath that surrounds and supports your every movement, so that every thought and feeling is permeated by it. You feel as though you are dissolving into love.

This love is actually part of you; it is always flowing through you. It’s like... https://goo.gl/OIvwXp

Ram Dass Meditates on Learning to Grieve

It is important, as we get older, to learn how to grieve. Although this may sound self-evident, experience has taught me that it is not. In a culture that emphasizes stoicism and forward movement, in which time is deemed “of the essence,” and there is little toleration for slowness, inwardness, and melancholy, grieving – a healthy, necessary aspect of life – is too often overlooked. As we get older, of course, and losses mount, the need for conscious grieving becomes more pronounced. Only by learning how to grieve can we hope to leave the past behind and come into the present moment.

Official Page for Ram Dass and the Love Serve Remember Foundation
Introduction
Ram Dass, spiritual leader and author of "Be Here Now" and other highly acclaimed works, continues to reach out and share his teaching throughout the world via the Love Serve Remember Foundation.

Since 1968, Ram Dass has pursued a panoramic array of spiritual methods and practices from potent ancient wisdom traditions, including bhakti or devotional yoga focused on the Hindu deity Hanuman; Buddhist meditation in the Theravadin, Mahayana Tibetan and Zen Buddhist schools, and Sufi and Jewish mystical studies.

 Perhaps most significantly, his practice of karma yoga or spiritual service has opened up millions of other souls to their deep, yet individuated spiritual practice and path. Ram Dass continues to uphold the boddhisatva ideal for others through his compassionate sharing of true knowledge and vision. His unique skill in getting people to cut through and feel divine love without dogma is still a positive influence on many, many people from all over the planet.
