Now in our culture giving up is seen as failure. Everybody says keep trying, keep trying. We surround people who are dying with a certain kind of falseness that comes out of our own fear. When my mother, my natural mother was dying I remember it was back in ‘66 and she was in a hospital in Boston. I would be sitting with her and in those days I was taking a lot of psychedelics so I would usually be on something sitting with her. I would watch people coming into the room, all the relatives and doctors and nurses saying you are looking better, you are doing well and then they would go out of the room and say she won’t live the week. And I thought...

“That silence which is not the silence of the ending of noise is only a small beginning. It is like going through a small hole to an enormous, wide, expansive ocean, to an immeasurable, timeless state. But this you cannot understand verbally unless you have understood the whole structure of consciousness and the meaning of pleasure, sorrow…”

– J. Krishnamurti

Ram Dass Guided Meditation Practice

Bring your awareness to your breath. Just notice the breath. Either notice it going in and out of your nose or notice in rising and falling in the middle of your abdomen.

Pick one or the other and stay with it. Notice the breath going in. Notice the breath going out. And notice the little transition points between the in breath and the out breath, and the out breath and the in breath.

The Totality of the Moment

There have been moments in your life when you were pure awareness. No concepts, no thoughts like “I am aware” or “That is a tree” or “Now I am meditating.” Just pure awareness. Openness. A spacious quality in your existence. Perhaps it happened as you sat on a river bank and the sound of the river flowed through you. Or as you walked on the beach when the sound of the ocean washed away your thinking mind until all that remained was the walking, the feeling of your feet on the sand, the sound of the surf, the warmth of the sun on your head and shoulders, the breeze on your cheek, the sound of the seagull in the distance.

Can we come to enjoy the unfolding storyline of our lives without being trapped by it? Ram Dass explores our symbolic value in society, and how we can learn to inhabit our roles lightly, with love, joy, passion and emptiness.

Attend to keeping my heart open. Remember what Kabir said- “Do what you do with another human being, but never put them out of your heart.”

Honor my intuitive heart and give it space and respect so that it provides a real balance for my intellect.

Quite my mind. Free up my awareness so that it is not at the reactive mercy of each passing thought. Remember: “Quiteness is Master of the Deed.”

Listen. Listen with non-judging non-craving awareness to hear clearly.

“But he learned more from the river than Vasudeva could teach him. He learned from it continually. Above all, he learned from it how to listen with a still heart, with a waiting open soul, without passion, without desire, without judgment, without opinions.” – Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha

Listening Quietly to Our Intuition:

When you have the compassion that comes from understanding how it is, you don’t lay a trip on anybody else as to how they ought to be. You don’t say to your parents, “Why don’t you understand about the spirit, and why I’m a vegetarian?” You don’t say to your husband or wife, “Why do you still want to ball when all I want to do is read the Gospel of Ramakrishna?” A conscious being does all he can to create a space for going to God, but he does no violence to the existing karma to do it. So you work with your fire, but not patronizingly, because you’re not superior; you’re just different.

Perhaps at some time you have sat quietly by the side of an ocean or river. At first there is one big rush of sound. Listening quietly, you begin to hear a multitude of subtle sounds: the waves hitting the shore, the rushing current of the river.
In that peacefulness and silence of mind you experience precisely what is happening. It is the same when you listen to yourself.

When we design our lives in anticipation of the next high, we miss out on the richness of the present moment. Our desire systems operate in time, and the eventual recognition of these pattern creates despair. This is the moment when the seed is planted, when we begin the next stage of our personal growth. When we learn to see our experiences as a training ground for the accumulation of wisdom, our perspective shifts from attempting to master the universe, to simply being an instrument of its unfolding.

Official Page for Ram Dass and the Love Serve Remember Foundation
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.
