Recently my spiritual learning has mostly contracted to the talks by Ram Dass on the Here and Now podcast and talks/ books by Alan Watts. I wanted to share episode 136 of Ram Dass’s talk on ‘how to be happy with what is’, ‘how to enjoy the unfolding storyline of your life without being trapped by it’ and how to ‘learn in this lifetime how to inhabit roles lightly… with love, and joy, and passion – and with emptiness’.
Ram Dass invites us to ‘see your life experiences as grace. As a set of opportunities through which you can be free.’ And to ‘…realise there are no errors in the game. The ones handed over to you are tailor made for you. All your life is what you are here to learn as a soul.’
Sometimes you are so busy being somebody that everyone reacts to your somebody-ness and nobody reacts to your nobody-ness.
