Ram Dass – Here and Now – Ep. 234 – The Awakening of the Soul

In this potent talk from 1976, Ram Dass explores the channels of perception of individual differences and how every experience in life is grist for the mill of the awakening of the soul.

“But what we are meeting as are these entities, or souls, or essences, that are passing through a set of experiences. And we are sharing consciousness as to the nature of these experiences and what their significance is to us as souls. And from that point of view, everything in your life is grist for the mill of the awakening of your soul out of its attachments to either the body or the personality or the astrological identity.” – Ram Dass

Straight from 1976 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, Ram Dass explores:
  • The journey of awakening and the predicament of how we perceive ourselves and others
  • The different channels of perception of individual differences, from the physical level to the astral planes and beyond
  • How everything in our lives, including all the joy and all the suffering, can be used for the awakening of the souls
  • How a truly conscious being experiences all the different channels of perception simultaneously
