"Those who know will understand"
I would. To the normal waking person it may seem strange, but when accompanied by a mushroom or two you definitely get it.
There is no comparing this level of wisdom to anything. Ram Dass see's existence for what it is, and lays some heavy ideas on you.
Every last second. Every ego shattering, beautiful sentence.
Definately, though if you were to listen to it in one sitting, you may not absorb the amazing amount of wisdom he displays.
This was obviously made in the 60's or 70's when use of psychedelics were very popular. My normal consciousness couldn't quite grasp it, but after eating one special mushroom containing (censored) I fully understood everything he was trying to say, and it absolutely changed my life. It made me realize how silly the ego is. It's not as big as we think it is, and you don't have to get rid of it. The Ego serves a purpose in the physical world, however, nothing beyond that. It is when you get lost in the illusion of ego that you run into issues.
in some areas the volume is low and hard to hear, but that was a small part of the whole. What can I say? I love Ram Dass, what he says and how he says it. He makes me laugh and let's me know he's human by sharing his difficulties.
"Be here now"
I loved this audio. I have listened so many times I also play it while I sleep. This is one of my favorites from Ram Das.
"Great stuff here"
Do yourself the favor. If not for you for the ones you love! Be love ;) "what do you think you are!? Some kind of yogurt!?" Haha
I'm new to this spiritual stuff, just trying to gain more happiness & perspective in my life. I heard this was a good book to listen too. It was good, but nothing you can't get on the ram dass podcast, the chanting is kinda awkward.
