Ram Dass – Here and Now – Episode 34 – Promises and Pitfalls


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.

  1. Precious indeed. I commented on Ma Anando moi after listening to your previous podcast just a few days ago. And here comes this beautiful reassuring podcast. Thank you.

  2. Original separation from source authentic self. Choosing to come into a conditioned reality to experience it. Leaving authentic expression/experience going into duality, into conditioning. Children denied authentic experience because of conditioning by others who have chosen to believe in duality.
