De zijn de 20 mooiste quotes van Ram Dass

In de Bedrock-serie ‘de mooiste quotes van’ delen we regelmatig inspirerende citaten van wijze mensen. Eerder kwamen Mathma Gandhi, Eckart Tolle en Jezus al aan bod. Vandaag zetten we Ram Dass in het zonnetje. Hij is misschien iets minder bekend, maar zeker niet minder wijs. 

Hij werd bekend als psycholoog aan de Harvard University (waar hij samenwerkte met Timothy Leary), begon later zijn pad als spiritueel leraar en schreef onder andere het boek Remember Be Here Now. Hij overleed in 2019. Ter ere van hem delen we zijn mooiste quotes.

De mooiste quotes van Ram Dass

  1. “I would like my life to be a statement of love and compassion–and where it isn’t, that’s where my work lies.”
  2. “We’re all just walking each other home.”
  3. “The quieter you become, the more you can hear.”
  4. “We’re fascinated by the words–but where we meet is in the silence behind them.”
  5. “It is important to expect nothing, to take every experience, including the negative ones, as merely steps on the path, and to proceed.”
  6. “Suffering is part of our training program for becoming wise.”
  7. “The most exquisite paradox… as soon as you give it all up, you can have it all. As long as you want power, you can’t have it. The minute you don’t want power, you’ll have more than you ever dreamed possible.”
  8. “The heart surrenders everything to the moment. The mind judges and holds back.”

  15. “Only that in you which is me can hear what I’m saying.”
  16. “Everything changes once we identify with being the witness to the story, instead of the actor in it.”
  17. “A feeling of aversion or attachment toward something is your clue that there’s work to be done.”
  18. “We are all affecting the world every moment, whether we mean to or not. Our actions and states of mind matter, because we are so deeply interconnected with one another.”
  19. “The next message you need is always right where you are.”
  20. “The game is not about becoming somebody, it’s about becoming nobody.”
