Episode 36 – Promises & Pitfalls Pt. 3


The spiritual journey is a different path than what you thought you were on. It’s very hard to make the transition to that path because we tend to take the power from the spiritual work we do to make our lives “nice” – but that’s not what the path offers. The path offers freedom, but freedom demands complete surrender. The dialogue between the mind and the heart has become out of balance in our culture.


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.

    Hello there, I don’t know your name but I came to India in 1970, went to Pondicherry to see The Mother in Nov 1970, and stayed for several years, first in Pondicherry and then in Auroville until April ’74—so I know the scene of which you speak. I lived in several Auroville communities finally building a house on the beach. I forget the name of the community. Your journey is necessarily different from mine. Having stayed in Auroville for as long as I did, I simply surrendered to the simple state of being there. It was where I lived and life just went on. Nonetheless I was simply changed. And leaving Auroville, going to live in Himalaya for awhile then back to South India – Kodaikanal….one learned over time…surrender, and also how to simply wait. And gratitude. Having nowhere to return to I was simply where I was.
    I’m enjoying the little bits on Facebook. Thank you,
