Ram Dass: Guided Meditation

A beautiful relaxing guided meditation by Ram Dass.
Jon Hopkins with Ram Dass, East Forest – Sit Around The Fire


Beyond all polarities
I am

Let the judgments and opinions of the mind
Be judgments and and opinions of the mind
And you exist behind that

Ah so
Ah so

It’s really time for you to see through the absurdity of your own predicament
You aren’t who you thought you were
You just aren’t that person
And in this very lifetime
You can know it
Right now

The real work you have to do
Is in the privacy of your own heart
All of the external forms are lovely
But the real work
is your inner connection

If you’re quiet when you meditate
If you truly open your heart

Just quiet your mind
Open your heart
Quiet the mind, open the heart

How do you quiet the mind?
You meditate

How do you open the heart?
You start to love that which you can love
And just keep expanding it

You love a tree
You love a river
You love a leaf
You love a flower
You love a cat
You love a human

But go deeper and deeper
Into that love

Til you love that

Which is the source of the light behind all of it
Behind all of it

You don’t worship the gate
You go into the inner temple

Everything in you
That you don’t need
You can let go of

You don’t need loneliness
For you couldn’t possibly be alone
You don’t need greed
Because you already have it all
You don’t need doubt
Because you already know

The confusion is saying
“I don’t know”

But the minute you are quiet
You find out that in truth
You do know

For in you,
You know

Plane after plane will open to you
I want to know who I really am

As if in each of us,
There once was a fire

And for some of us
There seem as if there are only ashes now

But when we dig in the ashes
We find one ember
And very gently we fan that ember
… blow on it
… it gets brighter

And from that ember we rebuild the fire
Only thing that’s important is that ember

That’s what you and i are here to celebrate

That though we’ve lived our life totally involved in the world
We know
We know that we’re of the spirit

The amber gets stronger
Flame starts to flicker a bit
And pretty soon you realize that all we’re going to do for eternity
Is sit around the fire
