A Lovely, articulate description of the benefits of a personal connection with a highly evolved, enlightened teacher
on January 27, 2018
I knew Ram Dass back in the 60’s when he was Richard Alpert and he, Ralph Metzner and Tim Leary were experimenting with and recommending LSD at Harvard. That was before he went to India and met his guru. This book is a lovely, articulate description of the transformative benefits of having a personal connection with a highly evolved, possibly enlightened teacher. That part really resonates with me because my own life changed unimaginably for the better after meeting someone enlightened.
By remarkable synchronicity on April 29, 2002 I met Dave Oshana. On that day and since the changes continue, very much as Ram Dass describes with his teacher. I stopped being angry and did not need to meditate because meditation would happen spontaneously. Loving those around me is now effortless. Interestingly and in contrast to many spiritual teachers Dave Oshana has not adopted Hindu names, fashion or manners, since he is after all just a London lad and yet all the benefits Ram Dass describes in Be Love Now and much more can be directly and easily experienced around him.
