Promises & Pitfalls (Tracks 6-8)

Ram Dass talks about the promises and the pitfalls of the spiritual path, and the shift of reality that happened in the sixties that was predicated by psychedelics. This shift blew apart the traditional religious systems that were in place at the time, and the psychedelics gave people a connection that they had never experienced before: a feeling that they were interconnected with the universe. When we see how much of our behavior is a defense mechanism to alleviate the pain of separateness, we begin to realize the importance of healthy intuitive and compassionate hearts.

    Really, isn’t this BS? There are no pitfalls. God will churn this thing around sooner or later and no one gets stuck. Just see what is there and you’ll be fine. No?

    You have to listen to the whole lecture in the podcast of this site. Ram Dass speaks on behalf of his experience and of those he has known. Pitfalls exist, but yes they are temporary as one awakens, develops faith and understanding.
