Ram Dass Quotes
- The most exquisite paradox
as soon as you give it all up, you can have it all. As long as you want power,
you can't have it. The minute you don't want power, you'll have more than you
ever dreamed possible.
Dass Quote - Power
Death has such great importance in this society that it affects everything. I
learned from my guru that death is not the enemy, i see it as another moment.
Yet its the end of an incarnation and means going on to other incarnations.
Ram Dass Quote

practices help us move from identifying with the ego to identifying with the soul.

Dass Quote - Important
dance goes from realizing that you're separate (which is the awakening) to then
trying to find your way back into the totality of which you are not only a part,
but which you are.
Dass Quote - Realization
the word God means is the mystery really. It's the mystery that we face as humans
the mystery of existence, of suffering and of death.
Dass Quote - God
