Ram Dass

Ram Dass is one of the living masters who has encouraged thousands of spiritual seekers into awareness. He has been an important part of my journey. Here is a bit of a bio done on him by Oprah for her "Super Soul Sunday" series.

I also very much like what he was saying about suffering  a couple of decades ago, well before his stroke in this YouTube piece.

I can't really explain Ram Dass. He is a brilliant mind whose thinking gave me permission to change mine. He showed us how to step out of religion and then beyond religion into our spiritual awesomeness.

 

Perhaps one of the reasons I love his mind and his teaching is because at a core level I truly relate. I had forgotten this quote of his until I was doing research this past week to present Ram Dass for Sunday service. Ram Dass wrote: "I help people as a way to work on myself, and I work on myself to help people… To me, that’s what the emerging game is all about." That is what I do and why I do what I do. None of this matters if I'm not doing meaningful work that helps enhance someone's spiritual journey; and none of it matters if their journey isn't enhancing my spiritual development.
