Everything changes once we identify with being the witness to the story, instead of the actor in it.

The question we need to ask ourselves is…

The question we need to ask ourselves is whether there is any place we can stand in ourselves where we can look at all that’s happening around us without freaking out, where we can be quiet enough to hear our predicament, and where we can begin to find ways of acting that are at least not contributing to further destabilization

After Alpert returned to America as Ram Dass, he stayed at the Lama Foundation in Taos, New Mexico, as a guest. Ram Dass had helped Steve Durkee and Barbara Durkee co-found the countercultural spiritual community in 1967, and it had an ashram dedicated to Ram Dass’s guru.

During Ram Dass’s visit, he presented a manuscript he had written and entitled from Bindu to Ojas. The community’s residents edited, illustrated, and laid out the text, which ultimately became a best-selling book when published under the name Be Here Now in 1971.

Also, the 416-page manual for Conscious Being was published by the Lama Foundation, as Ram Dass’ benefit for the community. Be Here Now contained Ram Dass’ account of his spiritual journey, as well as recommended spiritual techniques and quotes.

“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.”

The proceeds from the book helped sustain the Lama Foundation for several years, after which they donated the book’s copyright and half its proceeds to the Hanuman Foundation in Taos.
