Top 10 Quotes by Ram Dass


  1. It is important to expect nothing, to take every experience, including the negative ones, as merely steps on the path, and to proceed.

  2. The quieter you become, the more you can hear.

  3. Inspiration is God making contact with itself.

  4. The World is perfect as it is, including my desire to change it.

  5. The spiritual journey is individual, highly personal. It can’t be organized or regulated. It isn’t true that everyone should follow one path. Listen to your own truth.

  6. If you think you’re enlightened go spend a week with your family.

  7. The most important aspect of love is not in giving or the receiving: it’s in the being. When I need love from others, or need to give love to others, I’m caught in an unstable situation. Being in love, rather than giving or taking love, is the only thing that provides stability. Being in love means seeing the Beloved all around me.

  8. Let’s trade in all our judging for appreciating. Let’s lay down our righteousness and just be together.

  9. Every religion is the product of the conceptual mind attempting to describe the mystery.

  10. I would say that the thrust of my life has been initially about getting free, and then realizing that my freedom is not independent of everybody else. Then I am arriving at that circle where one works on oneself as a gift to other people so that one doesn’t create more suffering. I help people as a work on myself and I work on myself to help people.
