Ram Dass speaks of Love

Ram Dass“Love is the most transformative medicine For Love slowly transforms you Into what psychedelics only get you to glimpse.”

“You may protest if you can love the person you are protesting against as much as you love yourself.”

“That’s who we all are on this path, spiritual family and friends. It’s just one big family. We’re all relatives until we realize we’re really all the same and there’s only one of us—one loving awareness. May you be one in that love.”

“Through love for God, your work becomes an expression of devotion.”

“Grace is at the nexus of love and awareness. There it’s all open and it’s all love.”

“Once you have drunk from the water of unconditional love, no other well can satisfy your thirst. The pangs of separation may become so intense that seeking the affection of the Beloved becomes an obsession.”

“It is only when you begin to understand that if you and I are truly in love, if I go to the place in me that is love and you to the place in you that is love we are ‘together’ in Love. We start to understand that what love means is that we are sharing a common state together. That state exists in you and it exists in me.”

“Compassion refers to the arising in the heart of the desire to relieve the suffering of all beings.”

“Our interactions with one another reflect a dance between love and fear.”

“I’m not interested in being a “lover.” I’m interested in only being love.”

Ram Dass
