Contemplations from Ram Dass


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.

Align my actions with my deepest truth. Stay conscious of the ways in which my life lacks integrity- economically, socially, politically, personally and philosophically- with what I know to be the deepest truth.

Re-consecrate my self again and always so that my actions will be an offering to God by whatever name. Remember the bottom line: I took birth in order to awaken out of the illusion of separateness. All of this stuff of life is the curriculum. Stop complaining and enjoy!


In order for us to be able to make these teachings available to everyone, we need your support. As Ram Dass says, “When you see the Beloved all around you, everyone is family and everywhere is love.” We are all affecting the world every moment – our actions and states of mind matter, because we are so deeply interconnected with one another. So please do lend your support to help us make this vast offering from Ram Dass and friends accessible to all.
