Sunset Quotes: Ram Dass
“As long as you have certain desires about how it ought to be you can’t see how it is.” – A Harvard professor named Richard Alpert traveled to India where he met someone who would change his life forever. A Hindu guru Neem Karoli Baba, Maharaj-ji, opened him to a whole new way of seeing life and he became known henceforth as Ram Dass. He has been a huge guiding voice for me. I have listened to hours upon hours of his lectures. Sometimes what he says is so simple, and yet so meaningful for me at that exact moment in my life… I have a bad habit of wishing for more, hoping for a particular vision of the future, and many times this does blind me from the amazing life I have in the present. Be here now!
